If you aren’t having a traditional ceremony, like where everyone walks down the aisle, but certain guests will still have special roles, like making a speech or the parents of the couple, what do you do? Typically the men wear boutonnieres and the ladies in the wedding party carry bouquets but why not have a “unisex” boutonniere that everyone with a part in the wedding can wear? Like the herbal boutonnieres that are pictured above.
You could even have theme drinks based on the wedding parties herbs, like mojitos. Or and this may be a bit much, but you could give each “wedding party” member a starter plant that matches their boutonniere or a recipe that includes the vegetable from the plant and the dried herb they are wearing. Very personalized and pretty practical. Go here for the diy plant favors and here for the diy wedding boutonnieres.
