Going handmade for your wedding is becoming increasingly popular, everyone wants something that no one else has on their special day, even better if it’s specially made for you.
One of the newest trends is walking down the aisle holding a brooch bouquet.
A brooch bouquet is what it says in the title, a bouquet made of brooches! They usually have pearls, ribbon, and jewellery in them as well as brooches, and can come in all different colours and shapes.
Brides-to-be are opting for brooch bouquets rather than flowers as they tend to be the same price, but with the benefit of lasting significantly longer. By buying a brooch bouquet, you are investing in a piece of art that will be passed down for generations and avoiding setting off your hay fever on the most important day of your life.
If you’re travelling to marry, a brooch bouquet can take the stress out of ordering and locating flowers, as you will already have your bouquet in your suitcase ready to go. A bride’s worse fear is having her flowers delivered on the day and realising they are not what she expected, with a brooch bouquet you avoid unwanted surprises.
Old, New, Borrowed & Blue
If you’re after that traditional wedding touch, with a brooch bouquet you can tick off all your list for something old, new, borrowed, and blue.
Old: (We prefer vintage) The brooches in your bouquet once belonged to someone else in another life and have traveled all the way to you.
New: Your whole brooch bouquet is your something new! Specially made just for you.
Borrowed: A nice idea for this would be to add a piece of ribbon or fabric from a loved one to the handle of your bouquet.
Blue: A glimmering blue gem in your gorgeous brooch bouquet
A Bouquet Alternative
For a sentimental bride, a brooch bouquet is perfect. It’s also very romantic that you are inheriting stories and memories in the form of brooches, pearls, and trinkets, and having something new created from them. A very poetic notion for the most romantic day of your life.
In a world that is so mass- manufactured, everyone is looking for alternatives. Supporting creatives and investing more in recycled products is the way forward. A brooch bouquet is a bohemian choice for your wedding that encompasses style, uniqueness and ethereal beauty. Not to mention that they look amazing glimmering in the light, both indoors surrounded by candles, or outdoors in the sunlight.
