One of the first things I teach new wedding planners is how to pin boutonnieres and other personal wedding flowers. Believe it or not, many people find this intimidating, probably because it involves such close contact with virtual strangers. This doesn’t have to be a stressful undertaking, though! Let me give you some tips in the event you’re ever in the position where you need to pin a boutonniere (or corsage).
— First, find out if the boutonniere or corsage is meant to be pinned or if it has a magnetic closure. Many florists are now using magnets to avoid any damage to clothing with stick pins.
