    I love the purple bouquet but i would definately have the gold replaced by silver. Gold doesn’t match your dress and jewelry at all. Another option would be style #2 which is only half of the price but with purple flowers instead of red, or purple and white. Plus the matching Bridesmaid or Best Man bouqets in white, maybe a bit smaller than yours

    would people think I’m weird for going with “fake” flowers?

    Why should they? If red roses are the norm people will probably be surprised and amazed in a postive way that you have such a gorgeous and unique bouquet they have never seen before. And if not, you shouldn’t worry. It’s your choice and if people don’t like it it is their problem, not yours.

    would a brooch bouquet make me look over the top,

    Maybe with an all white bouquet, but i think if you choose a red or purple bouquet the focus will be more on the color than on the sparkly brooches

    Love the white. With how decorated your dress is, I just think the purple would be overboard–and may possibly take my eye away from you.

    Wow.  I love both the brooch bouquets!  They’re kind of awesome.  Would you mind sharing the link to where you found them?  I’d like to look some more for inspiration for my own bouquet…

    I vote for style #1.

    my bouquet will be real flowers mixed with clusters of brooches. I was originally going to have a full brooch bouquet, but then decided that I would feel that I was ‘missing out’ if I didn’t have any real flowers

    I like the white best. I should have done something like this. If you do decide on fresh make sure the florist is top notch. I was highly disappointed in my so called fresh bouquet.

    Hi date twin!!  I love the all white brooch bouquet (#2) and I don’t think it’s over the top at all.  I say do what your heart desires!!

    I voted for #1 but I honestly think both would look beautiful in red. You may also save some money if you ask the Etsy seller to make the Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquets smaller since it’ll need less supplies. And don’t worry too much about what your guests will think. Choose what makes you happy! 🙂
