As weddings are becoming slightly less formal and couples opt for the more relaxed venues, the trend for less formal buttonholes has emerged. These new designs are perfect for those gents that are not keen on flowers that are too large or traditional.
Here you can see a small selection of buttonhole designs that I’ve created for some of our customers. Above you can see a really delicate buttonhole featuring lavender and beautiful dusty miller silver foliage. I’ve finished the stem with white satin ribbon and bow detailing.
If you are getting married outside, in a barn, tepee or a country wedding location you might be going for a rustic or woodland wedding theme. In the photo’s above and below you can see how I’ve added twigs, herbs, ferns and delicate flowers and herbs to create a small cluster buttonhole. They’ve been finished with brown raffia to give a natural look.
Gypsophila has been a really popular choice for wedding flowers over the last five years. Below you can see how I’ve incorporated into the gent’s buttonholes. It’s a great flower for small delicate buttonholes which are often popular with groom’s that don’t want too big a flower. It also works well when added to other flowers like the rose you can see here.
I adore these little acorns that I backed with fern, rosemary, ivy and twigs for a rustic wedding held in a woodland setting.
