Wedding flowers lasts a day, Nan’s Button Box Bouquet will last forever! Featured

Meet my new fabo friends Lynsey and Katie from Nan’s Button Box Bouquets! I spotted this clever idea at a vintage clothing fair in Sydney earlier this year. I was immediately charmed by their range of bouquets made from, can you believe it, humble buttons and brooches! Every single one of these bouquets are a piece of art, with no two the same, glamorous and unique. I finally sat down with them last week over a cuppa and a chatted to them about their innovative small business.

I firstly discovered that Katie has a fine arts degree and Lynsey has a background in floristry. Together they have collaborated over two years creating this alternative idea for those quirky and off-beat couples looking for something different to add to their special day. They source their buttons from everywhere, friends and family, vintage shops, even Katie’s school students pitch in! Go the recycling!

The process generally starts by a couple giving the girls your colour scheme and some of your style preferences. One bride brought an heirloom brooch she received as a gift from her grandmother and was the inspiration for her wedding bouquet. Some of the more unusual are bouquets made out of Lego, puzzle pieces and army soldier pieces. The girls are pretty much up for any challenge a client throws at them, so couples are only limited by their imagination. And if bouquets aren’t your thing they also make gorgeous button holes or corsages for jackets as well. Future maintenance of these unique pieces are a cinch, just a light dust over or damp cloth, stored out of direct sunlight and they will continue to look as beautiful as on your wedding day.

On asking about cost I found that prices compared favourably to fresh flowers, and the bonus is it’s something you can keep forever or make unique gifts for your attendants.

Ball park prices start from;

Small                                         11cm                     Flowergirl                            $75

Medium                                     15cm                     Bridesmaid                         $250

Large                                         25cm                     Bride                                  $350 (brooch bouquets start at $500)

Jacket Button Hole                                                                                            $25

Keep in mind these prices are a guide and will vary according to how elaborate the material needed, they also provide a competitive quote on a deal for a complete package! They also offer chic hand sewn material bouquet as a “give- away bouquet” starting from $50.

Recommend lead time for delivery is usually 8 weeks prior to the wedding day; however a simple bouquet or button hole can be made up in as little as a week. But as with all things, call and check first!

Nan’s Button Box are located in Western Sydney and are happy to ship interstate if needed and if you are planning for an overseas wedding this is fantastic option prior to your departure.

The girls are always looking for the next thing to expanding their range, so it didn’t surprise me that they have recently added table centre pieces to their range. I have to confess I was more excited about seeing what they come up with for head pieces as people know I am not a “bridal veil” kinda gal! They also are planning a market stall in Rouse Hill NSW soon, so you can catch up with them in person on weekends.
