Shotgun Shell Boutonniere

To some brides, the Bridal Bouquet is the most important piece of the puzzle, and the rest falls in line behind.  But for others, it is just important for their to be personality in their boutonnieres and corsages as it is in their bouquets. These shotgun shell boutonnieres demonstrate a level of uniqueness that can be added to personal flowers that you might not have the flexibility with when working with whole bouquets. 

Bride Elizabeth was having a country-themed wedding that had some really fun details.  After talking through her ideas, I received a package in the mail with several custom painted shotgun shells.  Yes, you read that right, shotgun shells.  My job was to incorporate them into a few of the boutonnieres as a nod to her fiancee and his friends.  We used some summery white Daisies and Baby's Breath and a touch of some small coral accent flowers.  The shell still needed a little customization, so I wrapped some twine around a section in the center and it was the perfect added touch.  Take a look!

Elizabeth wanted a slightly more feminine look for the corsages so I designed the classic wrist corsage with white Daisies and Roses, Coral Roses and small accent flowers.  As with most of my mothers' corsages, I tossed in my signature rhinestone spray for some tasteful sparkle and tied it off with some delicate sheer ribbon.
