I’ve been coming across quite a few brides lately who have made their own vintage brooch bouquet or purchased one. I love this idea since you can incorporate family brooches into your bouquet. Maybe your grandmother has some she would be willing to lend/give you. I know when my grandmother passed away a few years ago, she left all the grandchildren some of her brooches and I’ve been wondering what to do with them – this would have been such a great idea! I also heard from another bride that she asked all her friends + family to each send her a brooch. She then took all the brooches they sent and created her own bouquet from them. The day of her wedding everyone could see their piece in her bouquet – so sweet! You could also check out thrift stores or ebay to find some to match your color palette. I really loved how Britt’s mother also incorporated feathers into her’s as seen in the wedding I shared this morning by the Last Forty Percent Photography.

More gorgeous bouquets…
There are also some designers out there who will create one of these pieces of art for you! Amanda at Fantasy Floral Designs credits herself as the original creater of the brooch boquet and she can create one of her lovely bouquets for you.
I’m also totally in love with the whimsical beauty of the bouquets created by Noaki Jewelry.
Are any of you thinking of carrying a brooch bouquet for their wedding? It definitely is unique in that you really can keep your wedding bouquet forever!
