3 Contemporary Boutonnieres Perfect for a Winter Wedding

Boutonnieres are a groom’s staple. A winter colour palette, with its warm tones, has many couples choosing it as their wedding design.

1. Begin with a rose


Roses are incredibly versatile. They can be used in bouquets, garlands and large chuppah/mandap installations. Roses have a rigid stem, and its full head of blooms means that it can withstand a windy, wet winter day. It is best paired with leaves or berries to complete its look.

2. Go for colour


Tired of classic? Choose a unique colour combination. Blush, orange, and green might seem out of the ordinary but with the right flowers such as vivid tropical gingers, roses and frangipani, you’ll have a formation that matches the leaves of winter.

3. Combine textures


Incorporating textures from boutonniere to centerpieces, is an ideal way to add layers. The soft, tender petals of roses alongside something lavish like Baby’s Breath is a perfect option for a boutonniere.
