Well I’m doing it, I’m getting married this month. We’ve picked a brewery as our venue and unsurprisingly I’ve decided I want to make as many things myself as possible for the event. One of the things I picked to create was the boutonnieres for myself and my groomsmen.

Since the wedding was at a brewery I thought it would be fun to carry the theme into the boutonnieres and make them look like ethanol molecules.

This thing was made with Tinkercad. Edit it online https://tinkercad.com/things/b2L7L7AaQHQ

Yeah auntdaisy you're right they should be, I always remember that because it kinda looks like a poodle dog.

Hah, funny of you to mention that. This is my first version of the boutonnière: http://i.imgur.com/50gtx.jpghttp://i.imgur.com/50gtx.jpg

As you can see it does look quite a bit like a poodle. 

Congratulations. Really great idea and a beautiful print.

Shouldn't the Hydrogens/Oxygen on the Carbon atoms be arranged tetrahedrally?  Or, are they drunk?  In which case, it's yet another clever 3D-printing pun (like Cute Spocktapus).

You make a valid point, I made a few "design concessions" to make this work pinned to a suit. ;)
