Wedding Boutonnieres and Corsages
Attention to details is one of our most precious vertues, we definitely bring it when it comes to boutonnières and corsages!
These tiny flower arrangements need to blend in perfectly with the rest of the wedding flowers and every touch counts. Whether it is the use of the correct flowers (some flowers cannot be used as boutonnières or corsages because of their longevity out of water) or the finishing using proper colored ribbons or other accents repeated elsewhere (like pearls, crystals or specific leaves) the finished product will always look fabulous!
A little history:
A boutonnière is a floral decoration worn by men, typically a single flower or bud. The word comes from the French boutonnière, or buttonhole, which is the British term.
Traditionally, a boutonnière was worn pushed through the lapel buttonhole (on the left, the same side as a pocket handkerchief). However, on many recently made coats and jackets, the lapel is made without the stem loop required, which would normally sit on the reverse of the lapel, beneath the buttonhole. Sometimes, the lapel buttonhole is in the ‘keyhole’ shape, as opposed to the traditional straight cut, or is not even pierced through, in which case the boutonnière may be pinned onto the jacket lapel, although this is considered unsightly by many.
A corsage is an assembly of flowers worn on a woman’s dress or worn around her wrist. Corsages are often worn by the mothers and grandmothers of the bride and groom at a wedding ceremony.
