My cousin had a brooch bouquet that was huge, cascading, and super heavy! I believe she just placed it on the cake table once she got to the reception. It added a little decoration to the table 🙂

Oh wow, that’s so pretty! Nicely done, lady. I second the cake table idea if there’s room.

@kellyo367:  Will it not lie on its side?

@kellyo367:  Is it terible if it gets squished (meaning are you planning on saving it?) My real (huge lush) bouquet will get put near the cake and its going to get smushed, but I dont plan on having it preserved so I’m more than fine with that. If you plan on saving it, could you just fix the smush? Sorry my only advice isnt the best…

 

The only other thing I can think of is maybe a huge mason jar or vase with something REALLY heavy inside. It would need to be painted so the heavy object wouldnt show through..

 

Other than that, I have no clue.

Okay…I’m going to try to find a picture, but what about a miniature tripod type stand? The bouquet would end up being one of the legs, and then behind it at angle, two supports would hold it up. Ugh. I’m so bad at this. Let me go find a picture.

Okay I got it backwards with the legs, but something like those pictures. You could pegs on which the bouquet can rest or hooks where ribbon can be tied. You’d have to play around with the weight balancing, but once you got that settled, it should be pretty stable. I’m brainstorming other options. If you go with a vase, it should be wider on the bottom than up top for maximum stability as well as filled with heavy rocks or something.

@kellyo367:  I was picturing the bouquet upright because angled might make it fall over anyway. However, if your Fiance is making a stand, he can figure out the correct dimensions if you were thinking of having it angled. Another option is to have the stand just big enough to support the main part of the bouquet rather than the whole thing. It would be smaller therefore easier to make (I think), and you wouldn’t have to worry about it tipping over. The bouquet would like almost on its side.

 

Oh…if you go that route, it might be easier just to make/get a wedge stand. 

This is a pillow, but you get the idea. If he’s making it, he could whittle a notch in which the “stems” could sit. Does that make sense? Another option is a stand that looks like a Y like half of the wand stand below:
