Behold the new trend in bridal bouquets…brooch bouquets! These jeweled masterpieces are a new alternative to traditional flower bouquets. Not only are they intricate works of art, but a meaningful way to incorporate sentimental family heirlooms. And unlike natural flowers, they’ll last forever.
The idea may be new, but the jewelry is vintage. Bridal brooch bouquets are usually made from the jewelry of the bride’s mother or grandmother. We already predicted jewelry in bridal bouquets as a trend for 2012 and it could easily be your “something old.” Brooch bouquets are the perfect compliment to a vintage-inspired wedding day dress like the ones we featured from Jenny Packham Spring 2012 Collection.
Custom-made brooch bouquets are available from Fantasy Floral Designs, “Home of the Vintage Brooch Bouquet.” Amanda Heer, owner and floral stylist, will work with you to make the one-of-a-kind bouquet of your dreams. Combining your family treasures with the best silk and satin to finish the stems, her creations are perfection.
If a custom-made professional design doesn’t fit your budget, you can DIY your bridal brooch bouquet. It’s not an easy task but a great project for creative and crafty brides. Crafty brides who might also be interested in creating their own paper garland wedding decorations. Find out how to design your own brooch bouquet at FancyPants Weddings.
The best thing about a bridal brooch bouquet is the infinite number of possibilities for personalization. From family jewels to tiny trinkets, you can include anything you want in your bouquet. Incorporate your fiance’s initials or the Cracker Jack prize he gave you on your second date.
No matter your choices of what to include, brooch bouquets will be around long after you’ve said “I do.” Longer-lasting than a crispy and delicate bunch of dried flowers, these bouquets are fantastic keepsakes for remembering your wedding day.
