Do you think it would clash just because it would be too “busy?” I think it would look lovely, IMO!

I actually think a brooch bouquet would look best with a lace dress. I think lace and brooches both have a very vintagy feel!

The decision is up to you, but here is a picture of me with my first fitting in my lace dress and my brooch bouquet. Both need some tweaking, but it should give you an idea of how it looks.

And here’s a closer look at the bouquet while it is still a work in progress:

Hope this helps.

I think your gown is absolutely gorgeous and brooch bouquets, similar to the ones above, would look perfect!!

@BluButterfly:  Glad I could be of some help. Brooch bouquets aren’t for everyone, but I think they are stunning. I have brooches from my grandmother, great grandmother, FI’s grandmother, and I believe one from my aunt, all of whom have passed away in my bouquet. Every item in the bouquet is very special to me because even the ones we bought were with my grandmother right before she passed away about a week later. It is my last happy memory with her and I’m so glad I have it.

@BluButterfly:  So glad you like those!  When I saw your gown, I immediately thought of the brooch bouquets I posted.   So sorry to hear about your Mom.  Frown  I’m sure it would be very sentimental if you used some of her jewels in your bouquet.  Be sure to post yours when you are done!

I LOVE this!  I am wearing an all lace gown & I am considering a brooch bouquet as well!

I understand about your grandmother.  My mom passed away just 4 months ago, actually four months ago today.  And today is her birthday… So this hasn’t been the greatest day… but I am trying to bring as much of her into the wedding as I can.  Instead of having a ring bearer pillow, I am using her Bible, and tying lace around it, for example.  We aren’t giving favors, either.  I am simply making a donation to the local cancer association.
