    I know no-one would ever do this, but I always get a visual in my head of a bride tossing the bouquet to the single ladies and knocking them unconscious with a big ball o’ brooches.

    They can be beautiful, but they seem very expensive for a much smaller bouquet, and you lose that extra sense you’d get of the smell of your flowers!


    Also, I’ve seen some terrible ones! But I saw one that would have been absolutely adorable for my little flower girl, but for £200, unfortunately isn’t happening.

    @bebero:  Sigh

    The OP used the term “tacky” in the poll initially. 

    Please read my other posts as to why you should not be calling someone’s choices tacky.

    I like them, but I prefer the hybrids.. real flowers with about a dozen brooches sprinkled in.

    @BridieBea:  I personally am not a fan of brooch bouquets but I also think it depends on the style of your wedding and the vibe/look that you are going for. I think these types of bouquets can be quite beautiful if done a certain way to fit a certain theme. I also think fabric bouquets can be quite gorgeous too if you get beautiful material and a good seamtress to make one for you. I like the idea of have a brooch on your bouquet around the handle of your flowers because you still have a little touch of that look and feel. Also like PPs said, a fabric and brooch bouquet would also look really nice and pretty. I have also heard brooch bouquets can get expensive and that it can get difficult to match all the pins with colors and themes. But it is your wedding, go with what is your style, in your budget, and what you love! Happy planning! =)

    They’re beautiful. As someone that dislikes real flowers because they just die, this is something I can keep as I token of my wedding forever. It won’t shrivel. It won’t die. But real flowers are beautiful too. So nothing wrong with those.

    I’m personally not fond of brooch bouquets. They’re a bit trendy for me, and I’m afraid they will fall out of style soon, making our wedding photos look dated so that’s why I didn’t considered one. No offense to anyone whose going the brooch bouquet route as I have seen photos of many of them that are really pretty, but for me personally, regular flower bouquets feel more classic and timeless.

    I think it all depends how they’re assembled. Personally I love them! But some do look overdone and ‘gaudy’. If you can, pick one with similar colours, if you make it yourself – put in alot of TLC 🙂

    I love brooch bouquets, I am doing one with Gold and Silver coloured brooches, and sticking to only rhinestones one the brooches. I still haven’t decided if I will use real flowers for my bouquet during the ceremony, get a couple of pictures with the flowers, than switch to my brooch bouquet and get pictures with it, and carry it during the reception.
