Wedding boutonnieres can spell romance when it comes to sweet ranunculus that can mimic the look of a peony - in miniature!

To create a similar design, you'll need the following fresh flowers, flower supplies and hard goods:




After your wholesale flowers have arrived and been processed correctly, go through the flowers and cut off the tight buds and put them in a vase and store immediately in the refrigerator.  You want to keep these as tight as possible to use as accents in your boutonniere and corsages.

If you haven't prior experience in wiring flowers, leaves and grasses, and assembling them together as a boutonniere, be sure to read through the tutorials in Galleries 1 and Gallery 2 for step by step photos.  At the bottom of this page you can find quick links to boutonniere basics.

Once the flowers have all been wired, tape together with stem wrap.  Ribbon wrap the stem with satin ribbon, then wrap a band of gold ribbon.  Thread the button through the last wrap of the gold ribbon and glue the cut end on the back or pin with a shortened corsage pin.
