Los Angeles FloristAll weddings should be as unique as the love they celebrate. If you're looking for a one-of-a-kind boutonniere that is also trendy, keep reading.From rustic cool to whimsically elegant, here are eight unique and stylish boutonniere ideas to fit your perfect day.

1. Texture

Boutonnieres no longer have to be simple and boring. Adding texture to various parts of wedding accents is huge right now, and we're loving the texturized boutonniere look.

Adding texture so your boutonniere really pops and is alive for the big day is easy. You can add texture by incorporating berries, succulents, and greenery that is flowy, soft, textured, and fresh.

You can also add texture with non-floral accents. Add pins to the boutonniere such as a gold arrow or another symbol that is special to your love or friendship.

Adding unique types of fabric to the arrangement also will add texture. Check out how to incorporate burlap, twine, and more below.

2. Succulents

From home interior decorating to gardening and now weddings, succulents are everywhere in 2018. They are beautiful, different, elegant, and easy to care for. They can live without water for days without wilting, which means you can create arrangements ahead of time.

Another great thing about succulents is their versatility. The most popular themes using succulents right now are Bohemian, classic/timeless, elegant, and whimsical wedding styles, but succulents can work for any wedding style and look great with any type of bouquet and boutonniere.

Eucalyptus, dusty miller, lavender, balsawood flowers, protea, berries, and cotton all make excellent pairings for succulents.

3. Cotton

If you're looking for the perfect touch for a rustic, winter, woodland, or whimsical wedding, then look no further than cotton. A cotton boutonniere is a great way to be different and stunning.

You can add small young cotton pieces for a little bit of vibrancy and texture. Or, you can choose to make cotton the main show with a ready-to-harvest large centerpiece.

For fall weddings, cotton looks great with wheat, pussy willow, mini lotus pods, silver brunia berries, forest or bright green succulents, and willow branches. Add some twine or burlap for the ultimate "cotton-picking" showdown.

For winter weddings, cotton can be paired with tallow berries, holly berries, cedar, pine, pinecones, and greenery. Burgandy princess pine looks especially stunning next to cotton.

4. Burlap or Twine

Adding burlap or twine to your boutonniere is the perfect extra touch for rustic or woodland weddings (and for any season). The most popular way to incorporate rustic fabrics is by wrapping the stems in burlap or twine.

Another way is to use burlap flowers in place of live florals for the boutonniere. These look great, especially on a herringbone jacket, and can save you a lot of money, too.

5. Berries

Berries are everywhere in 2018 wedding florals. And they're not just used for winter weddings anymore either.

Green berries are perfect for spring and summer weddings. Pair them with gum leaves and additional greenery.

For whimsical and elegance, the light colors of snowberries and white hypericum berries can be used with succulents or a large open bloom for any season. They really pop against dark suits.

Red berries, of course, go great in winter boutonnieres. However, they can also fit a fall wedding, too. Pair them with fall flowers and accents such as acorns, wheat, and rustic fabrics.

For spring and summer, a great way to celebrate the life of the seasons is with edible berries added to the boutonniere. Raspberries, viburnum berries, and blackberries are just some berry-fun ideas to consider.

Dark privet berries provide a lovely alternative to red berries for fall and winter styles. They look great with acorns and seeded eucalyptus.

6. Evergreen

For a woodsy wedding, evergreen makes an enchanting statement.

Evergreen placed as the base flora of the boutonniere is a great way to add greenery without settling for the typical leaves. Evergreen works well with white flowers, red berries, pine cones, and rustic ties.

You don't only have to use evergreen for winter weddings though. They can fit into any season, especially with boho, woodsy, rustic, and fairy-tale-inspired weddings.

7. Herbs

If you really want to be creative and smell wonderful, incorporate herbs into your floral arrangements. You can even make the boutonnieres yourself with various herbs and greenery.

Herbs like rosemary, mint, juniper, cinnamon, sage, and lavender make great boutonnieres alone or paired with wildflowers and wild greenery. Herbal arrangement fits any season, too.

If you want to really be organized, choose herbs that are used throughout the season and wedding. For example, mint and cinnamon are nice for a winter wedding where their warm flavors and smells are in the air. You can even serve minty drinks and desserts to match.

On the other end, a summer or spring wedding calls for lighter notes such as lavender and sage.

8. Grains and Hops

Grains and hops aren't just for making beer. They are natural elements you can add to your boutonnieres and other arrangements for a wedding that no one will forget. They are fetching for rustic and woodsy weddings. In addition, they are great for adding texture and neutrals.

The best grains for boutonnieres include wheat, barley, and gin. Hopps also add a unique element and green texture.

Grains and hops look nice with lavender and other herbs, as well as soft flowers such as baby's breath and small wildflowers.
