One of the things in the wedding package I won was a custom-made brooch bouquet (though I had to supply the brooches). I originally wanted to do a floral bouquet, but the more I thought about the brooches, the more it grew on me. I started to collect, eventually got enough, and shipped them off! The vendor is now finished, and she sent me photos! The actual bouquet should arrive soon. I can’t wait.
So, here she is! I especially love the way the handle was done. What do you think?

wow, that’s gorgeous! i love the look of brooch boquets, especially since they will never wilt and would make a wonderful keepsake. i also like that they used flowers and ribbon to pad out the bottom, it’s really beautiful. i’m curious as to how much it weighs? they seem like they might be hard to hold after a while, but i’ve never heard anyone complain about it so maybe not?

@laceywings: Thank you! She didn’t want to put in any flowers originally, but I told her I just had to have a few. I wish they came out a bit further, but I’ll see what it looks like when it comes in.
I have no clue how much it’s going to weigh. I’ll let you know once I get it.

It’s beautiful! I love the flowers and ribbon at the bottom and I especially love that she kept the handle not too bulky.
