White lily boutonnieres have a sleek, clean lines that look very elegant
as a buttonhole flower. Miniature calla lilies work the best, since
the standards are very large. Be sure to check out the other wedding
boutonniere pages on this website.
If you are interesting in learning how to make a boutonniere, check out these step-by-step instructions.
I always encourage the brides to have the groom wear a matching flower out of her bridal bouquet. If you like these groom bouts, then have a few miniature calla lilies placed in your bridal bouquet as well.
The finish on both of these calla bouts is called "ribbon wrapping". Do NOT put bows on boutonnieres! If you want them to match the bridesmaid's dresses, ribbon wrap with a coordinating color around the finished stem of the bout.
Here you have the simple elegance of a lemon grass twisted in a loop around the stem.
Another unique style can have the flower is wrapped in a salal leaf with a Lily of the Valley inserted in the center of the calla. (Please note: Lily of the Valley have a very short season in the spring and are quite costly. Substituting silk is a cheaper alternative and they look quite realistic.)
