Yeah, I’d like to know this too.  I don’t want a complete brooch bouquet.  What I’ve been looking at is satin flowers with brooches.

Just Google ‘flower and brooch bouquet’ and check the images.  When I did that, it came up with lots of photos.

@jaijaig88:  that is what I’m doing for my bridal bouquet! I really wanted a brooch bouquet- but I am not a DIY girl and the ones I found online were more than twice what the florist is charging me. So now, it’s best of both worlds 😉

Now to find some beautiful but inexpensive brooches…

@jaijaig88:  Yes–I did it for my bouquet, MoH bouquet, and the toss bouquet.  Just get some brooches, florist wire, and florist tape.  Skewer the brooch, bend the wire forming a “stem” and wrap with the tape.  Just make your bouquet and add the brooches wherever you’d like them.  A florist can add these for you too, but it’s easy and less expensive if you do it yourself.

This was my toss bouquet, made with silk flowers.

@jaijaig88:  Thanks!  I got my brooches at estate sales–they’re generally happy to give you a bunch for $10 or $20, or just a few dollars each.

You most certainly can use a mix of both! Here are a few using a mix that I happen to find gorgeous!
