We stumbled across a brooch bouquet online, and immediately fell in love. However, she realized she could not swing the cheap price tag, so she showed her mother a photo, who said "No problem!" "I loved everything about my bouquet! I am eternally grateful to my mom, because my bouquet will never wilt or die—I will have it forever. It will always have a special place in my house and my heart!" said Foley.
Here are systematic instructions for making your own brooch bouquet. Collect Your Materials: Foley hunted for vintage brooches, pins, and earrings at estate and garage sales, describing it as a scavenger hunt of sorts. Etsy.com is also a great resource for hunting down pieces. You will also need floral tape, craft wire, and silk flowers of your choosing .Assemble the Bouquet: Kim's mom wired each brooch and covered the wire with floral tape. Form the silk flowers into your desired bouquet shape. Scatter the brooches throughout the silk flowers. Add Finishing Touches: Cover the stems with vintage handkerchiefs, if you would like. Kimberly used her grandmother's cameo on the handle, which is a great way to honor a loved one.
As if her bouquet was not amazing enough, Kimberly decided to reinforce the brooches theme by bestowing one upon each of the important women in her life at the rehearsal dinner. She presented them to moms, grandmothers, and aunts, asking them to "Wear these on our special day and know we think of them in a special way."This listing is for a custom-made brooch bouquet that will be handmade to order based upon your colors and wedding details. These websites are of a bouquet that I created for another lovely bride. Yours will make just for you and will be slightly different from the photos as all of my bouquets are completely one of a kind. I recently made Miranda Lambert's bouquet for her wedding to Blake Shelton, so check for pictures in Us Weekly or on E! You will have this bouquet long after your wedding day is over. You can hand it down to your daughter to carry at her wedding. Alternatively, pick out a few pieces from the bouquet and give them to your bridesmaids as gifts. Choose your favorite piece and add it to a chain to create a necklace that you can wear everyday (or contact me if you want me to create a custom piece of jewelry from your bouquet after the wedding).
