Boutonniere = after thought
As I sit at my desk and listen to the consultations I hear the excitement as Tamara starts to visualize and virtuality build the bouquet for the bride. From there the bridesmaids dress color is discussed and their bouquets built. I hear Tamara bring up the boutonniere’s and I hear “Does grandma want a wrist or pin on corsage” The ceremony discussion always seems to be a little light hearted, as if the bride has seen her ceremony so many times in her imagination the look almost builds itself.
I can always tell when the consultation is about to move on to the centerpiece, the tone becomes a little more serious, the bride seems a little less sure at this junction. As the consultation continues all the details are worked out, what the moms will wear, what the flower girl carries, the petals for the aisle.
Then I hear it, “Oh gosh, we almost forgot the boys”, that’s right the forgotten boutonniere. It always seems to be an after thought, and I am hear to say “Shame, shame!”
What are to follow are some pictures of boutonniere’s from just the month of October, (yes I know that was 4 months ago) I think you will see they can be a very cool little detail that does have personality.
