@lionskitty:  I LOVE it! This would go well with my ivory gold outfit. Now you are gonna make me have to DIY! lol

What fabrics did you use and please tell me how to recreate something similar- I can make flowers but how did you get the stems etc

@mrsbacon:  These are beautiful and they look so real!! If you don’t mind my asking, how much did it cost to complete one bouquet?

I did a brooch bouquet for myself, and we made bouquets and bouts out of fake flowers.

I am doing a brooch bouquet because I am soooo obsessed with them and I just absolutely love bling and sparkles.  Plus, it was an easy way to incorporate some of my great grandmothers’ things, grandmothers’ things, mothers’ things, and my past things into my bouquet, so it is really special to me!  Also, I will have something to pass on to my sisters and/or daughters.  It isn’t finished yet because I won’t let my mother finish it without me being there to help, but here are some of my inspiration pics:  

This is Miranda Lambert’s brooch bouquet that she had for her wedding to Blake Shelton

This is more how I want mine to look, a little “fluffier.” I have mainly turquoise and purple brooches and purple fabric flowers my sister made for the fluff/filler. I am SOOO PUMPED!  

 

My bridesmaids will have fake purple flower bouquets.  Why did I decide to go this way? (Because don’t get me wrong, I LOOOOVE real flowers!) I am getting married outside, in the evening, in the middle of July in Nebraska.  I didn’t want the bouquets getting ruined throughout the day by wilting, getting handled too much, etc.  One of my bridesmaids was all for it because she was just recently in a wedding where the bouquets weren’t in the best shape by the time they got around to the ceremony because everyone had to set them down & pick them up so many times & it was hot & humid!  Won me over 🙂

@30somethingbee:  My etsy seller was AmoreBride, Michele.  She was great to work with, very responsive and made changes along the was as I requested.  Highly recommend her.
