Beautiful Brooch Bouquets for Brides:
Although brides around the world are sure to copy Kate Middleton’s simply-styled wedding bouquet, others are stepping away from the traditional floral arrangement and using beautifully arranged vintage brooches and jewelry for their bridal bouquets.
Some brides choose to use family jewelry; others trek to antique or pawn shops to select their treasures. Some brooch bouquet artists will even find the jewelry for the bride.
The nice thing about brooch bouquets is that they can become heirlooms or be displayed long after the event. Or, the bride can choose to give the brooches as keepsakes to their family or bridesmaids.
Brooches are available in a wide variety of shapes and colors, from rhinestone bling to scatter pins that women used to pin to their sweaters, and flower pins. Dragonfly brooches are another popular style.
