Boutonniere Idea: Calla Lily and Peacock Feather

Mother of the Bride, are your daughter and her intended ready to consider flowers for their wedding yet? If so, how would the groom feel about incorporating feathers into his choice of boutonniere? Peacock feathers could be one way to go if the colors coordinate with the couple’s chosen wedding colors.

Some grooms like the idea of a peacock feather boutonniere minus flowers, but the idea pictured above shows how it can be made more elegant by pairing it with a calla lily. Not only does it look more elegant, but the light color of the calla lily makes the whole look pop. And then, of course, if calla lilies are featured in other aspects of the wedding, all the better.

Why not share the idea with them, MOB, if they haven’t made firm choices on their wedding colors yet. This may be just the special touch they’re looking for without even knowing it!
