A brooch bouquet is the best way for a bride looking to combine the traditional “something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue” into one adornment. Vintage brooches can add a touch of classic to a bouquet of modern. Her special day should be filled with gorgeous treasures that define her perfectly at the same time becoming something that can be passed on through her family as they begin and grow. Daughters and granddaughters can benefit from the love passed through. Brooch wedding bouquets improve upon flowers because they do not wilt, leak or die. Brooches can be passed on for generations.
Considering a brooch bouquet will be more fragile than flowers, it may be good to have a small bouquet of flowers to throw to the bridesmaids and other women who come to the wedding. Brooches are not necessarily bound by the rules of flower arranging. A brooch bouquet can be DIY enough for an independent bride who wants her wild side to show through. The imagination of the bride is the limit. With some perseverance and willingness to hunt for just the right piece, this bouquet can be something to last forever. You can even start by looking through old jewelry boxes of close relatives. Many relatives would feel honored to have their former jewelry accompany you on your special day.
Some brides want a defined color scheme for their brooch bouquet. Others want to have a bouquet that contrasts sharply from their dress and the dress of their bridesmaids. It is important to remember this is your special day. You should have whatever you want in your brooch bouquet. The most important part of the wedding day is the happiness of the bride and choosing the bouquet should not be hindrance to this happiness. Follow your heart and your brooches will work.
