I need help deciding whether to buy a crystal and pearl bouquet or a brooch bouquet.
It’ll be an outdoor gazebo ceremony with 360-degree mountain views in a beautiful golf resort in the rockies. It’ll be a formal event themed as natural elegance. Our accent colours are gold, copper, champagne. We have sand-blasted manzanita trees with white stephanotis orchids and strands of swarovski crystals for centerpieces.
For the brooch boquet, I can get brooches that look like these ones in the photo, but smaller, roughly 1.25-1.75-inch diameter. I can buy these brooches really cheap and DIY my bouquet with some silk roses and hydrangeas (flowers with attached mini pearls).
The crystal bouquet is made of swarovski crystals, which can be ordered in all sorts of colours. There is also an option to mix in some pearls. I can buy this custom-made for dirt-cheap.
