Be Unique with The Creation of Your Wedding Boutonniere

There is a lot of emphasis put on the bride’s bouquet, and rightfully so. It serves as her main accessory, not just for the ceremony, but also serves an important purpose within the reception. However, it’s important to remember that the groom’s and groomsmen’s boutonnieres are just as important!

No, they won’t be throwing them over their shoulder to the single men in the crowd, but these charming accessories will be adorning their chests for the entire day. It’s important to create the boutonnieres to make an impression.

Here at I Thee Wed, we know how important it is for your wedding to be unique. That’s why we have put together a few tips to help inspire your wedding boutonnieres. If you are in search of a little inspiration, be sure keep reading to learn more:

·         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?

Does a "Day-Of Coordinator" only show up on the wedding day?

"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. If you end up speaking to someone who says they will only show up on the wedding day and save you lots of money because of it, please stay clear of them! Many wedding planners may label their coordination as "day-of" wedding coordination, but there is far more involved than just showing up on the wedding day when it comes to a professional wedding planner who knows what she/he is doing.

A 1 1/2 to 2 hour timeline meeting typically kicks off

A Venue Coordinator vs. A Wedding Coordinator

Unfortunately, things haven't changed much in the wedding industry regarding the confusion between a venue coordinator and a wedding coordinator. Couples still seem very confused between these two roles and end up not hiring a wedding coordinator after speaking with their venue. Their day ends up in disappointment because they assumed they would have that one, key person to go to and rely on for their entire wedding day. Instead, they have to wait until they walk through their venue doors to receive some coordination by their venue coordinator or banquet captain, who's primary responsibility is to the get the meal out on time and at an ideal temperature.
