All you really need for the perfect boho boutonniere is an air plant (a succulent will also work), feathers, or herbs. (Tip: Air plants live without soil so they'll make hardy boutonnieres that can last long after the ceremony's over.) Wrap the base of the plant in velvet ribbon and secure with pins for a simple DIY option as shown on the left. For the feather and rosemary boutonniere on the right, follow this guide.
