Don’t forget the groomsmen! Try these map boutonnieres in place of traditional flowers for the bridal party! You can even accent them with a bit of baby’s breath for a spring/summer wedding or holly leaves for a winter wedding. You can even make a whole paper flower bouquet out of maps – the possibilities are endless!
