·         Metallic shine. When you look at your boutonniere, you may feel as if there is something that needs to be added. While you love everything about your bout, there just seems to be one small thing missing. Perhaps a little metallic shine will solve your problem. Spray painting parts of your boutonniere, such as the greenery or foliage, can add that much needed glam. Colors such as gold or silver would make a lovely addition to your boutonniere.
·         Decal. Sometimes, your boutonniere just needs a little add-in. Items that correlate with your venue or theme are the perfect addition to your boutonnieres. If you are having a beach or ocean themed wedding, adding a decorative crab or starfish will make your boutonnieres pop. If you and your partner are avid fishers, you can add a bobber or a colorful lure to help your boutonnieres make a statement.
·         A touch of art. There are many things that you admire about your partner, and vice versa. Perhaps one of those amazing qualities is incredible art skills. You have the perfect opportunity to add a unique and genuine element to your boutonnieres. If you or your partner are talented in sketching or painting, you can create your own mini pictures and turn them into a button to accompany the boutonnieres. If you have a talent for crafting items, this is your chance to shine! You can bring your own touch of art to your wedding boutonnieres for a truly unique flair.

Your wedding is filled with opportunities to show your unique style and personality. So, why leave your boutonnieres untouched when there is a myriad of possibilities for them to shine?

"I've done all my own planning and want a "day-of" coordinator but can't find one who will show up on the wedding day only !  Why?" There's probably a lot of confusion amongst engaged couples because of the term "day-of" coordinator.
