Let's make them, shall we?
First, you need to select the dried flowers that will make up your dried flower boutonnieres. You can use any dried flowers that you like, but some popular dried flower boutonniere options include dried baby's breath, dried lavender, bleached italian ruscus, dried bunny tail grass, dried floral buttons, and dried yarrow. When choosing your flowers, think variety. You'll want to pick flowers with different textures and sizes.
Five floral suggestions to get you started:
- Dried baby's breath: Add a delicate texture to your boutonnieres.
- Dried lavender: Adds a touch of color and a beautiful scent.
- Bleached italian ruscus: Gives your dried flower boutonniere an elegant look.
- Dried bunny tail grass: Perfect for adding texture and depth to your dried floral boutonnieres. Plus they're just plain adorable.
- Dried bleached floral buttons: The sweetest little textural element! Small, dainty, and adds a variety of size to your bout!
Once you've selected the dried flowers you want to use for your dried flower boutonnieres, it's time to arrange them. Start by cutting a few dried stems of each flower type into small pieces and arranging them in a bundle. If you're making multiple dried flower boutonnieres, make sure they are all around the same size. Typically the groom's is made slightly larger. Once your dried flower bundle is arranged, secure it with floral stem tape or twine and add a ribbon in the color of your diy wedding for an extra special touch. Don't forget to stretch your stem tape to activate the glue!
