24 Winter Boutonnières Your Groom and Groomsmen Will Love
Everyone underestimates winter wedding flowers. We too often associate lush, dramatic florals with the sunnier months, and reduce winter's options to pine and berries. There's so much more to winter floral décor than you'd think—something we've illustrated in this roundup of stunning snowy-season boutonnières from real weddings. Bursting with fresh ranunculus, dried lavender, and snowberries, there's nothing not to love about a perfectly seasonal winter spray.
Just as there's no lack of diversity in types of blooms, there's no shortage of pretty color combos, either. Cool-toned blue thistles, dusty miller, and dried pods make for mini winter scenes, while ruby-colored ranunculus evoke precious stones. And don't count out winter white—there's nothing lovelier than a creamy rose against a formal black tux. When it comes to the details, turn to colder month's best elements for inspiration. Kumquats, acorns, pinecones, leaves, and berries can instantly bring a fresh bloom straight into the winter season.
Of course, not every winter boutonnière has to be fresh. We're loving tarnished metallic and gilded touches—achieved by a light coat of gold spray paint—that bring instant polish to any lapel. Our favorite? A tiny, slender gold vase, that instantly transformed a bout into a mini arrangement. Whatever types of florals or details you decide on, we've rounded up the most sophisticated winter lapels, so your groom (or groomsmen!) can take his pick. When you're done clicking through on your own, be sure to show your favorites to your husband-to-be. It is his suit jacket you're decking out, after all.
