I was going to make a brooch bouquet but I gave up when I realized I was not into it enough to search for the brooches, so I’m not here to tell you that. ๐Ÿ˜‰ However, I had a “bling bouquet” which I loved. My BMs also had fake flowers because, frankly, I don’t give a crap about flowers unless they are in a garden to stay.

Some people aren’t going to be into it, but meh. Not their wedding! ๐Ÿ™‚ I loved my bouquet and find it fun that I got to keep it. I have better pictures but don’t want to blow up your thread. I’m sure other bees have great tutorials for making an actual brooch bouquet.

The girls’ bouquets looked like this – we bought them pre-made.

@MyOwnWoman:  I think we found the BMs bouquets at Hobby Lobby? It was kind of a fluke! They were on clearance and only 3 left – I had 3 BMs and they were my colors. ๐Ÿ™‚ I got MY bouquet off of a site called bluepetyl.com. LOVED it.

@PoeticDoveInLA:  I’m not positive about the BMs coming in different colors or whatnot, but I’m sure they’re out there. Maybe try hobby lobby’s website? Bluepetyl is addicting, but they also come in all sorts of shapes, sizes, colors, styles. Some can run pretty expensive but mine wasn’t that bad.

Wow we must think a like. I think any of out options would work and look great in pictures. Hobby Lobby has some small individual rhinestones that you could scatter in your bouquet. Look in the wedding aisle. I am doing a round pink orchid bouquet for my bridesmaids ( White for me with pink centers) and adding this in. I think it add something to the simple look. You could also add a rhinestone mesh around the stems. If you had broaches i would add small ones to go with the smaller petals of your flowers.

Their prices have gone up. :/ I definitely didn’t pay that much! Granted, I ordered mine over a year ago. I paid like $150, which isn’t great but wasn’t unreasonable. I’ve read that the average fresh flower bridal bouquet can run anywhere from $50 to $200, on average. Of course many are lower and higher. I figured I’d pay “average” and get to keep it, so it was alright. I can’t believe they’re over $300! FWIW, the one I got is now listed at $200.

@PoeticDoveInLA:  I think you could definitely DIY! I DIY’d most of my wedding and was just burnt out by the time my bouquet came around. Pops of bling would be fun! I’m not sure what you mean by “white canvas” in regards to your BMs bouquets? I’m just a little braindead, sorry.

I originally did my own but didn’t like the “roundness” of it, so I took it apart (got it all from Hobby Lobby) and sent it to someone on Etsy to finish it for me. Yeah, I blew money on it but it’s mine and I get to keep it forever.
