So I have decided to do a brooch bouquet for my wedding. I just started looking at pieces (and need to cut down the prices of the ones that I like!) but the hardest part for me is figuring out what would go well together, and not just what individual pieces I would like. My main color is an eggplant purple (also fuchsia and black). This is the inspiration board that I put together with possible pieces (can’t afford all of these though!), and I am interested to know what other people think. Which ones go together and which ones should I get rid of? Do I need to have JUST silver or JUST gold settings, or is a mix okay?
The ones near the center are images of actual brooch bouquets, so you can get a sense of what I am trying to do. Look forward to feedback!!

WOW, they are all so beautiful. You have a difficult task to only choose some of them.
My absolute favorite one is in the last collumn, 2nd row. That goldish,prickly flower. GORGEOUS!

Thanks! If I could afford to, I would totally buy them all!! (AND venture out of the $10 or less category!)
If I put all these together do you think the gold would clash with the silver?

I think mixing metals is more than fine. especially with something like this….go for the ones you love. It could be a great way to incorporate your something old too though, maybe get a few from your mother or grandmother and his?

So….now more advice — Do you think the purple & metal will be too bland colored? My mom (who is usually pretty slow to get on board with out of the box suggestions) actually really liked this idea, so that made me really happy! But she also said that she thought the ones with a variety of colors looked the nicest. If I had just the ones shown above without any more color besides the purple, do you think it would still look as interesting?
