Wearing a boutonnière for a wedding, or special event, is something you don't do everyday. However, when the occasion arises, you must keep the boutonnière looking good. After the boutonnière's are fashioned, and before figuring out how to pin them on and where to place them, you may need to store them for a bit. There are ways to keep a boutonnière fresh and ready to use, even if there will be hours before wearing it at the wedding or event.

Keep the boutonnière in the box, and store it in a portable cooler. Keep it moist and cool until you are ready to use it.
