Nine Boutonnieres for FIVE DOLLARS!

Yes, you read the title of this post correctly! One of my Mom's good friends arranges flowers. And she is good. REALLY good. We are very blessed that she has offered to help us put our flowers for our wedding together! Last weekend she created these boutonnieres for an upcoming wedding, using fake flowers. And she made all nine of them for a total of five dollars. Amazing!

Look at these beautiful boutonnieres!

We have actually decided not to have boutonnieres for the guys at our wedding. This was my groom's choice. His opinion? People don't notice them, unless they are crooked or falling off. I see his point and I don't have a terribly strong opinion on the matter, so he's winning this one. And hey, it leaves more in the flower budget for other things! :)

What are your thoughts on boutonnieres?
