If you are having a beach themed wedding, you may be finding it hard to find some themed accessories for your big day. Especially when looking for male boutonnieres. Don’t sweat it and spend tons of time looking, there are many ways you can do them yourself. DIY boutonnieres are easy to make and can also be very cost efficient, so they won’t disrupt your budget. First you are going to need to decide what types of flowers you want to use.
Many people don’t consider using fake flowers because they think that they’re tacky…WRONG! Most people won’t even notice that the flowers aren’t real. Plus they will last all day and night, so you won’t have to worry about pictures, or the flowers dying on you, or getting ruined by the wind that you can usually find on a beach. After you have chosen what types of flowers you are going to use, head to your local craft or hobby store to find them. You can sometimes even find fake flowers are dollar stores and discount stores.
If you are having a tropical beach wedding, you are going to want flowers with bright vibrant colors. You can even mix different colors if you would like. For instance, you can use a large purple flower with small little white flowers. If you are having a beach themed wedding that is going to take place somewhere it isn’t warm all year long, try a flower that is native to the area, so that things do not look out of place. Buy enough flowers for each boutonniere, the pinning needles, and a hot glue gun and glue if you are using more than one type of flower. You also may want to use a colored ribbon.
Once you have all of your beach flowers, it’s time to make the boutonnieres. Cut the flowers off about leaving about 2 inches below the flower head. If you are only using that one single flower than voila you are done! If you are mixing flowers, you may want to hot glue them together, or tie them together, to make sure there are no problems. Or make sure that you pin them both on the tux so they both don’t fall out of place. Another great thing about the fake flowers is that they normally have wire stems so you can bend them to face where you want.
Your beach themed wedding will look complete with vibrant beach flowers on each of your groomsmen chest. Matching bouquets for your bridesmaids will also be easy since you can use the same flowers. This is going to save you tons of money, and worrying. Try these DIY beach boutonnieres in advance to make sure they look how you want, and enjoy your big day.
