DIY Divas: Boutonnieres

I know it’s the wrong time of year for this, but I couldn’t resist posting it for those brides that are already starting to plan their summertime beach weddings!  This idea can also be incorporated in to other seasons using a different base element, which I will explain shortly.

Boutonnieres for the groom and groomsmen are one of the smallest details in a wedding, and also one of the easiest to DIY.  Because you only need enough to cover the bridal party and any male family members, it shouldn’t be too time consuming.  My favorite DIY idea so far are these starfish boutonnieres, courtesy of Style Me Pretty.

They best part is, they’re simple, cheap and unique.  You can purchase starfish in bulk from places like Century Novelty.  You can also buy bar pins and a hot glue gun from any craft store.  The process is pretty self-explanatory–glue the bar pins to the backs of the starfish, and there you have it! Here’s a shot of the final product, as found on Bloom’s Design Studio.

As an alternative, you can use different items to compliment the season and style of your wedding.  Think flowers and ribbon, feathers, even small, shiney Christmas decor for holiday weddings!
