As y'all know, we're always on the look-out for alternative buttonhole ideas for your wedding. I mean sure, we love a rose boutonnière as much as anybody else, but we think there's just so many more ideas — whether it's LEGO minifigs for your geeky wedding, autumn leaves for your fall wedding, or even this concept: the mushroom boutonnière.

(Also, wait can we talk about the difference between a buttonhole and a boutonnière? Most notably: there is no difference. They're totally the same thing. Buttonhole is just easier to spell!)

This alternative buttonhole from Twisted Bramble from the Offbeat Bride Vendor Guide would be so perfect for a rustic fall wedding — mushroom season in the northern hemisphere is generally in October and November, and we feel like this boutonnière would be such a great idea for a moody autumn wedding.

But if a mushroom boutonnière isn't a fit with your aesthetic, let's try some other alternative buttonhole ideas…

Alternative buttonhole idea #1: Fishing flies

These fishing fly alternative buttonholes are available here

Alternative buttonhole idea #2: Finger puppets

Turns out that fingerpuppets make great alternative buttonholes for your wedding! This cute set would be a great for a dinosaur wedding (imagine all the groomsmen and groomsgirls with them!), but of course there are INFINITE finger puppet options.

Alternative buttonhole idea #3: Elven leaf brooches from Lord of The Rings
