Is it better to buy in the salon or do rose boutonniere by yourself?

Of course, bridal accessory sellers can offer you dozens of options for bridal boutonnieres. However, they can seem to be the same. We want to tell you how to make a boutonniere for the groom with your own hands. Create an accessory that makes your wedding dress truly special. If you’re looking for flowers, choose our store - we promise you will find here everything you need at a reasonable price!

A single rose boutonniere for the groom is more than just a decoration. It is safe to say that this accessory is in no way inferior to a bride's dress or a wedding bouquet in terms of its “importance”.

How to make the most beautiful, unusual, and stylish boutonniere roses with your own hands? As easy as pie:

  1. Cut the stems of flowers, making them the same length. Cut off thorns, buds, and leaves. We do the same with decorative elements.
  2. Fasten flowers and decor with floral wire.
  3. Place the boutonniere in a miniature capsule with a nutrient solution.
  4. Tie the composition with tape; it helps you hide the capsule.
  5. Decorate the boutonniere with a decorative ribbon or guipure.
  6. Pin down the accessory to the suit. Voilà, your look is completed! 

How to Choose the Perfect Boutonniere?

Rose boutonniere can be red, pink, or white in color. The boutonniere can be made of other materials suitable for decorating a costume. These are beads, ribbons, feathers, natural elements, and much more. But we will pay attention to fresh flowers.

  • Choose flowers to match the suit, bridesmaid dress, and bridal bouquet. For example, a white rose boutonniere can be in tune with the white dress of the bride.

  • Feel free to test the safety of the pin - the accessory should fit perfectly. Give preference to flowers without pollen, not to stain the groom's suit.

  • If the celebration is conceived in a certain style, then the flower arrangement should follow this trend. For instance, for a country-style wedding party, it is better to choose wildflowers.

  • The rose boutonniere should be in harmony with the color of the groom's suit. If you choose a red rose in the boutonniere, it is better to have an element of pink in the outfit.

  • Choose a small inflorescence so as not to spoil the harmony of the groom's image.

  • Flowers should not emit heavy fragrances; they may cause an allergic reaction and worsen the condition.

  • The maximum number of flowers in a boutonniere is three.

  • Do not wear too lush and massive boutonniere - a magnificent outfit is the lot of the bride. The groom’s image has to be exquisite.

How to create rose boutonniere:

This is a mini-bouquet for the groom, attached to the lapel of a jacket or pocket. Boutonnieres come in several types and with different fastening options. When making them, it is important to take into account the color of the jacket or shirt, the general style of the wedding, and the height of the groom. For tall men, the tiny boutonniere will look weird and out of place, as well as for slender males - too massive flowers. Usually, the boutonniere is assembled from the same material as the bridal bouquet or similar.

In the practice of wedding decorations, the single rose boutonniere is made of two types: open and closed.

Rose Boutonniere


Open rose boutonniere:

  • Create a small bunch of flowers and tie it with tape, leaving the stems free.
  • Then we add a special fastening for the boutonniere, a pin, and also fasten it with tape.
  • After that, we fasten the decorative tape with the double-sided floral tape and fix it with a pin. It turned out to be a real mini-bouquet that can be put into water.
  • The main advantage of these boutonnieres is that they can be pre-assembled and refrigerated. This is especially important if you need to make many such accessories.


Closed rose boutonniere:

The leg of such a boutonniere is completely covered with tape and decorated. This type of boutonniere is made just before the wedding ceremony. 

The rose boutonniere is a small, still important element of the groom’s outfit, which gives a charm.
