Boutonniere wedding Flowers

Make any boutonniere have a rustic look by wrapping with Bindwire.  This paper covered wire from asis comes in both natural and green and has 673 feet on a single bolt.

This bride planned a woodsy feel for her reception and wanted to coordinate her flowers to have a similar look and feel.  This wire is super easy to work with and is easy to bend and manipulate.

Hook the cut edge of the Bindwire between the stems of the flowers at the top.

Pull the wire around the boutonniere stem and tightly twist to secure.

Attaching a boutonniere magnet to the back of your lapel posies makes "pinning a boutonniere" a thing of the past!  

This little magnet may seem to small to hold a boutonniere firmly in place - but it will really surprise you!  The gold block is wired and taped onto the boutonniere and the silver part is what goes behind the lapel.

WARNING:  DO NOT USE MAGNETS ON PEOPLE WHO HAVE PACEMAKER IMPLANTS.

The attached wires makes it very easy to incorporate the magnet into the design.  I actually pierced through the florist tape on the leaf and hooked it.

I'm now going to wrap the bind wire over and around the wires of the magnet.

Finish off the Bindwire by twisting the two cut ends together and twirling the ends tightly against the side of the boutonniere.

This strong magnet should be high on the back, centering itself against the bulk of the rose.

The back part of the magnet simply slips behind the tux lapel and will hold the boutonniere firmly in place.

I've said again and again that making a boutonniere unique is precise attention to details.  I love adding diamante pins to any arrangement.

These Lomey Gems are 2" long and come 100 to a box.  The clear heads sparkle and catch the light, looking lovely in photographs.

They are available in clear, light blue, pink and apple green.

It may be necessary to cut the shank of the pins to a desired length before inserting into your flower heads or boutonniere stems.

Please follow all safety precautions, including wearing safety glasses while cutting the pins to the right length.

You'll love the eye catching shine and sparkle that comes with the simple addition of this boutonniere accessory.

You can make your own boutonnieres unique by following this basic tutorial, yet adding your choice of flowers and colors.  The key to professional designing is found in using the right florist products, using the freshest flowers you can and adding design elements that pump up the WOW!! factor.

Research the flowers you plan to use and make sure that they can hold up to the rigors of being a boutonniere or corsage.  Generally hollow stemmed flowers (gerbera daisies, daffodils, tulips) are very thirsty flowers and tend to wilt quickly, especially during hot months. 

There is a matching bouquet tutorial for this boutonniere directions.
