    Boutonniere Options

    As the local guy in a kilt and minister, I have been asked to perform a few kilted weddings. The most recent is that of a young couple with some interesting ideas. Most of the ideas relate to decorations involving tartan ribbon and such. However one idea they had struck me as clever er and I thought I'd see what the rabble thinks. Bearing in mind that it's their wedding and so long as the ideas are appropriate for a church function, I'll say nothing against them. So this is strictly moot point.

    They wish to use the clan plant badge in their flowers (bouquet and boutonnieres). Seems like a nice way to incorporate them, if you ask me.

    I think it's beautiful. What could be wrong with a clan's plant badge short of it being skunk cabbage?

    I love the idea of clan plants used in any ceremony. A backdrop for a man's flower (if my clan were used) would be a Hazel sapling (or at least a leaf).
    Due to the size, maybe in the bouquet or table setting. I hope the young couple the best and appreciate, plus approve, of their idea.

    Well alright flowers are part of a wedding and if that is what the happy couple want , then fine. To be honest though, it all sounds rather unnecessarily detailed in the symbolism and over the top.

    Agreed. One's mind also boggles with some of the 'traditional' Plant Badges: Fir Club Moss, Crowberry, Holly etc,

    Fortunately, the badges in this case are heather and thiistle. But, I see your point.
