The most obvious complement to your formal wear is some appropriate fall foliage. You can bring a bit of the season into your ceremony with a few carefully placed leaves and some deep-orange ribbon or twine. Fall colors on your boutonniere can be a fun, thematic addition to any fall wedding.

Celebrate the Return of Football

Remember, a modern boutonniere doesn’t need to be a flowery affair. There’s nothing wrong with showing some love for the home team during your ceremony. Consider a boutonniere that boasts your favorite football team’s colors.

Thanksgiving Comes Twice This Year

Consider this: your wedding day is a time for giving thanks unlike no other day in your life. Why not commemorate your good fortune with a boutonniere fashioned after a cornucopia?

Celebrate the Return of Good TV

What, only sports fans get to show off their fun side? The fall is also the return of new TV. Why not broadcast the shows you and your spouse will be watching on your honeymoon downtime with an appropriately decorated boutonniere.

Rebel Against the Season

Not down with the vibrant earth tones for which the fall is known? Then go your own way with an electric tropical flower or a whimsical ode to your favorite cartoon. Just keep in mind that boutonnieres aren’t just roses and baby’s breath anymore. The sky (and your imagination) is the limit.
