I need your advice…if I get this brooch bouquet, what will my bridesmaids need to carry? Regular flowers? Flowers with a brooch thrown in here and there? Something alternative, like a clutch? I’m open to anything you think will look good….I’m stuck…and every time I start to commit to something, I back out. Any pictures of what you have in mind will be appreciated 🙂
Also, please bear in mind that my bridesmaids will be wearing mismatched dresses/colors, all in chiffon.
This is their color palette:

I would get them some real bouquets, and have the florist stud it with brooches similar to yours throughout. That’s what I was going to do.

Given your color palette, I would have your bridesmaids carry small bouquets of all-white/ivory flowers. If you wanted to add some bling to theirs, that would be fine, but I don’t think it’s necessary.

Or you could be a complete crazy person like I am and have them carry smaller brooch bouquets too…… o_O. No but really that’s happening haha. My mother and I are making them too. I also am a fan of the pearl bouquets I have seen recently:
You could have them carry small pearl bouquets, which would look very pretty next to your brooch bouquet, but keep yours standing out!
Either that or like PP’s have suggested, get them real cream colored flowers and have brooches dotted here and there amongst theirs.

Mine are carrying brooch bouquets too! But I wish I would have thought of alternative s before I bought all the brooches and have so many to make!

@MizzPhiladelphia1986: I’m doing a brooch bouquet too! I think for my ladies we’re doing real flowers with a brooch that I plan to purchase for each of them added to them. I have a few florists that do a wedding package, so instead of them adding my bouquet to it, they split the bridal one between a couple BM’s so it’s the same price. $299 for all the bouquets and men’s boutineers, i’ll take it!

@MizzPhiladelphia1986: I am carrying a brooch bouquet and then I have my girls carrying actual flowers. But I’m using fake ones because I’m gonna rhinestone them around the edges and fake ones would be the only ones that could hold them.
hope that helps!

@MizzPhiladelphia1986: I love the idea of the BMs carrying th pearl bouquets!
There are other options too if you don’t want them to have flowers.
You could do lanterns, babys breath, clutches

@MizzPhiladelphia1986: Ask your florist to make simple, small bouquets of mixed color roses that match your color palette. I can look something like this:
