How To: Create Your Own Cool Boutonniere

If anyone knows me, you know I think bullets are cool { hello Love Bullets! } so I was blown away by the boutonnieres at Chelsea + Kyle's wedding that they made themselves. I was surprised at how simple they were to make...and I think anyone groom to be that loves hunting or shooting ranges { am I explaining every man ever?! } this is a creative option. The groom to be and his groomsmen shot these bullets themselves and used different color bullet casings to distinguish the groom, father of the groom and the groomsmen. They added baby's breathe to cotton to keep it simple, add elegance, but still keep the country chic vibe that the entire wedding had. Here's the brilliant part: to put them on the men's coat jackets, instead of the needle through the flower which sometimes leads to disaster to someone's fingers, they dropped magnets in the bullet shell and used the other side of the magnet on the inside of the coat jacket pocket! Be sure to test the magnets beforehand to make sure they are strong enough...but in this case, it worked out perfectly and was just another fabulous yet home made touch that made this event so unique and special to them.
