Creating wedding accessories, bouquets and buttonholes with buttons can be great DIY fun. Not only will you get a whole load of inspiration as you start to browse the many button designs, shapes, sizes and colours that you can buy. You will also realise you can create accessories that are completely unique, quirky or even incorporate family heirlooms into the mix and all this can be achieved at a fraction of the price of the conventional accessories.
The first thing that pops into mind when talking about buttons at a wedding is the ever popular button bouquet. These are ideal for the bride looking for something a little different from fresh of silk flowers, or where they are looking to achieve a fun, bright or vintage effect. Button bouquets also have the keepsake advantage and can have a sentimental memento added and be passed down to others getting married in years to come.

Button ideas for the groom
If you are having buttons in your bouquet then it’s also good to include this idea for the groom and groomsmen. Most men would wear a flower at a wedding, but if they were offered the choice of a flower buttonhole, or a button design one most would go for buttons.

Including some cute button decorations around your reception such as hanging decorations, cool centerpieces or even as useful place card and table numbers or signs can really pull your theme together. Styrofoam, wire, ribbon, pins and glue are all helpful in getting the desired shape and structure.
