These theme bouquets are amazing, they are festive, colorful and so unique. That is the beauty of non-floral bouquets as an alternative on your wedding day, they offer a unique way to personalize your wedding style as you walk down the aisle.  Include a cherished family heirloom, or make an all brooch bouquets from jewelry passed down by family members.  Even the smallest piece of jewelry can tell a story, like this lovely vintage summer design we did for a bride on her wedding to her firefighter beau, we love the idea of including jewelry pieces that represent not only the bride, but also the groom, or the couple as the become a family.

Considering a brooch bouquet or a non-floral alternative for your wedding day, they have some amazing advantages, vintage and repurposed brooch bouquets are eco-friendly.  They also last longer than traditional fresh flowers. These bouquets are not mass-produced and are simply unique to each bride. They showcase the beauty of the jewelry in divine layers of texture, and when mixed with flowers, they are simply stunning, making you feel like a princess on your wedding day!

If you are a DIY bride, these alternatives are easy to make.  For a brooch bouquet, start by collecting jewelry from family and friends, buy online at retailers, craft suppliers and auctions. Make it fun and host a bouquet making party for your bridal party.  If you work with a designer, don’t be afraid to ask about prices, sizes and shipping options, understanding that these bouquets are handcrafted and takes long hours to put together. Inquire if your  designer will help you include your own brooches or jewelry as well.bead3
