Looking for creative ideas to try? We, at Eschol Park House have sourced the web to provide you with 10 of the most unique and stylish options for non-flower corsage or boutonniere perfect for your wedding day!
5 DIY Non-Flower Corsage
A burlap wedding corsage is an ideal accessory for your rustic theme wedding. You can incorporate it with a layer of lace, white satin and cluster of pearls to create a classic and vintage look.
Using fabric corsages instead of fresh flowers adds a vintage feel. Plus, they last much longer than a real flower. With fabrics, you will never run out of options, you can either go for thick ones like felt fabric and linen to smooth and soft ones like velvet or satin.
3 Paper Flowers
Paper flowers are simple and inexpensive but don’t look like so. With a few snips and folds, you can DIY a set of corsages for the entire entourage.
4 Paper Flowers
Recycled doesn’t mean it has to look like trash. All you need is creativity and the most useful materials. You can cutout flowers and petals from scraps of denim or old novels and even music sheets.
Wire corsages make a good statement that wraps around your arm.
5 DIY Non-Flower Boutonniere
1 Fresh Leaves
Boutonnieres made with greenery are suitable for simple and outdoor weddings. Its subtle look and natural beauty livens up the appearance of the entourage without being too empowering.
A metallic bout is a great alternative to traditional floral bouts if you are looking for something edgy or a distinct look for your wedding day. You can even match the groom’s metallic coloured tie with his entourage’s.
3 Oceanic Element
Gone are the days when beachside and nautical-themed weddings are all about dyed blooms and baby’s breath. With only a few oceanic elements, like starfish and seashells, you can already come up with countless combinations to bring vibrant colours to the entourage.
4 Organic Element
Wheat, ferns, foliage make pretty bouts too. You can incorporate wheat stems to your bouts to create a boutonniere that looks like the one we would find in a ranch or farm wedding.
Succulents are no longer just for pots, they complement a rustic wedding too. While you may think that succulents on bouts may be too overwhelming and heavy to be worn on the lapel, you may always opt for baby succulents for a delicate and dainty finish, with a rugged edge at the same time.
Basically, you can use anything you want for DIY bouts and corsages. In fact, you can even choose the one that perfectly fits both your personality and the wedding theme. This way, the piece will not only be a necessary element on your wedding but a token everyone can keep for a long time.
