If you want to do something a bit different, make a bold statement with your buttonholes - here are 11 quirky designs to whet your appetite
Don't forget about your buttonholes - a simple and effective way to add to your colour scheme, while making a statement.
1. Sweet and simple
These one-of-a-kind boutonnieres are made of silk, printed with Ima Pico's signature designed colourful patterns and individually hand sewn.
2. Superhero style
The buttonhole was handcrafted from a 1978 Avengers Marvel hardback annual, complementing the couple's brightly colour themed wedding, and to tie in with the bride's brooch bouquet.
3. Golden touch
Rose gold looks like it's here to stay as a wedding favourite, so these paper rose buttonholes are a great nod to the trend. Featuring two paper flowers made from rustic metallic copper/rose gold and finished with wheat, they are perfect for rustic weddings with a gilded twist.
4. Nice knits
A hand-knit set comprising a boutonniere and bow tie, this design features a brooch fastening to the back, making them easy to wear.
5. Say it with lilies
Individually handmade and hand painted, this clay flower boutonniere is a delicate Calla Lily Pin. Sculpted using a very refined modelling clay, which when fired becomes very light and strong, each piece is entirely unique.
6. Bright and beautiful
Crafted by Jessica Scissorhands, the Grape Soda Bottle Cap badge design was inspired by the Disney Pixar film, Up. In the film, Ellie gives Carl the Grape Soda Badge which upgrades their relationship into a ‘club’. The badge is a nod to that exclusive club between lovers tying the knot.
7. Shake your tail-feather
Made with hand selected natural peacock plumes, these alternative boutonnieres are ideal for the modern-day genetleman. Vibrant and alluirng, these buttonholes offer the added benefit of not wilting, staying strong all day long.
8. A fictional favourite
These handmade, rustic boutonnieres from C&E Designs are a great alternative to the usual buttonhole options. Using pheasant and duck feathers, a purple flower and violet heather, the selection is tied together with a piece of recycled paper from a Lord of The Rings book and purple ribbon.
9. Deadly cool
These smiling skulls from Perfidious present a quirky and creative addition for your lapel. Available in silver or gold, the pins feature over 30 Swarovski crystal colour options to match any colour scheme.
10. Cute as a button
These cute children’s buttonholes from I Heart Buttons are petite versions of the adult sizes and can be made in an array of beautiful colours. Each piece is made from scratch and can be personalised to suit requirements - including the button text.
11. Back to nature
This unique boutonnière from Charlotte Grace Floral Designs is handmade from lavender, oats and other natural flowers. The boutonniere is 15cm in length and each one is supplied with its own pearl head pin. Sold in sets of three, they are ideal for the stylish modern rustic wedding.
