An Alternative to Traditional Bouquets
Bride-to-be have the option of incorporating jewels, buttons, crystals, feathers and more into their design and with many stunning styles, shapes and sizes to choose from they are sure to find something perfect for their day. Add a classic, vintage feel with pearls and brooches or use crystals and jewels and opt for a more modern, stylish feel. Alternatively you could also include family heirlooms or sentimental pieces that hold special meaning to you or your partner, offering a truly personal addition to your day.
Brooch bouquets can be tailored to suit your personality
Colours, shapes and sizes
With almost as many colours, shapes and sizes available as traditional flowers, brooch bouquets offer a fun and interesting way of integrating a theme or splash of colour into your ceremony. They can be soft, subtle and simple or as exciting and vibrant as you like. Brooches are a meaningful alternative to tradition, acting as a lasting memento and keepsake that can be passed down to family or friends or simply kept and cherished as a memory of your big day.
You’ve two options in embracing this trend: either wholeheartedly abandon tradition and select an entirely jewelled bouquet adorned with crystals or combine the two styles and merely add a few sparkles or significant pieces in with your chosen flowers. Brooch bouquets also make gorgeous centrepieces and can be used effectively to add a simple touch of elegance and glitz to your table.
