DIY Boutonnieres are an easy and fun way to save money on your wedding. So basically you simply gather a few floral elements, or feathers, or shells, or burlap (or any small item which cleverly ties in to your wedding theme), some greenery and wrap them together with floral wire and floral tape, cover with ribbon and put a pin through the wrapped stem. With very little money and time spent you can knock out one thing on your to-do list while at the same time adding a little personality and creativity to your wedding!
Not a crafty person? Don’t worry for a second….this is one DIY you can handle. WeddingStar breaks down the simplicity of the task beautifully in their spring bout tut:

Got some ribbon and jute in your junk drawer? Well, you’ve got the makings of an adorable, nautical-inspired embellishment for the men in your bridal party:
Dragons and feathers tie in with your theme? How ’bout this?
My hubs would have loved these for his groomsmen…

But, of course, fresh flowers are always gorgeous. And since this project is so quick, you could whip these up the day-of with help from the bridal party.
