Can you post a picture of the brooches?

They seem large so I think it would be worth it!

That is $60? If you REALLY like them, get them… but I think I would try to create these myself with polymer clay… if you have the time?

I’ve been buying some off of ebay, usually after shipping it’s around $5-$6 so I say it’s worth it!

They look gorgeous! I’d do it! If they don’t work perfectly into your bouquet after all you could easily turn them into gorgeous hair clips for you and/or your BMs 🙂

Depends on how big you plan to make your boquet.  Mine was ~65 brooches, so the few “expensive” brooches my aunt got me did not stand out and were not worth the money, IMO.  In general, I got most of mine from flea markets, yard sales, goodwill, etc.  It took me over a year to collect them all, but I rarely paid more than $2 per brooch.

I ordered a lot from ebay… the sellers in Hong Kong and China sell them very cheap!  It just takes about 10 days to get them.

I would buy them for sure! They look great and they will really bring your bouquet together wonderfully. I paid between $2 and 12 for mine ($AU), most around $6-8. By the time I got all my bits im sure I’ve spent over $400, but worth every cent I think as I enjoyed the process, have a boquet that will last a lifetime and look amazing in my wedding pics!

I hope you brought them. They could be the foundation for your bouquet and you could use cheaper brooches for filler. I brought a lot of rings and brooches on Ebay. Most of them are “vintage looking” and the rest are actually vintage. This bouquet is the one wedding project that my mother is actually interested in. She pulled out some brooches that belonged to her and my grandmother and gave them to me to use. Good luck to you.

I would totally buy those! Maybe it’s because I’ve been buying vintage/antique crystal/rhinestone brooches, but $71 for 10 seems like a steal! We’ve been paying about $25 average for each of my brooches at various antique stores/marts, though granted, the sparkly ones usually cost a bit more. Luckily, I’m planning to do a bouquet with about 80% flowers and 20% brooches so it won’t cost me as much as a full brooch bouquet.

There were several I fell in love with at these stores, but they were about $60-90! Ouch. I kind of want two more but Fiance says no more. Honestly, I didn’t see any brooches that were less than $10 that even had one crystal on them.

P.S. We’re wedding color twins!
