2. “The groomsmen wore gray, black and ivory, so we wanted a pop of color to create some contrast. Their boutonnières also matched the bridesmaids’ yellow dresses.”

3. “Initially I wanted white hydrangeas, but learned that they don’t do particularly well in boutonnières, especially in the summer. Our florist suggested the flowers we actually used.”

11. “I was inspired by the sunset, and at first I wanted use lisianthus. But then I watched Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day, which is set in the ’40s, and was inspired by the single carnations the men wore on their lapels.” – Emily Tenner, wife of Shamus Samborn
