Broach are definitely not cheaper than real flower ones, broaches can get very pricy! But for most girls who have them that is their vision and they’re willing to spend a bit extra on it. Submerged centerpieces really depend on the flowers you’re using, but I’d talk it over with a florist.

hmmm i did submerged flowers for my centerpieces… cept they were silk… but you really couldnt tell… i got the cylinder vases and flowers and clear marbles from michaels and i did them pretty cheap… i think the cylinders where 2-3 dollars a piece and i accumulated them over a year…. and the flowers were 6.99 a branch and each branch had 8-9 flower pieces (like smaller branch) that i used in the vases so i only needed 2 branches 🙂 and i forget how much the stones were…. but with coupons you can get away pretty cheap. oh and the candles were 1.99 a piece… ouch but its okay 🙂

Brooch bouquets reguire many brooches so the cost is obviously dependent on how much you pay for the individual brooches.

This pretty one took 50-80 brooches and has a collar of fresh flowers.

Some brides are lucky enough to have their brooches given to them. One bride posted about a shower where all the guests also brought a brooch.

It is not easy to gather enough brooches that actually look good together. Some of the brooch bouquet pics online are not so attractive.

Submerged flower centerpieces can cost way less than floral arrangements. Cylinder vases can be purchased very inexpensively at dollar stores, Hobby Lobby, wholesale online sites etc. They can also be rented.

The flowers are easy to do. Attach the stems with floral putty to the bottom of the vase. Cover that attached area with pebbles or beads. Fill with distilled water.

There are also so many different styles using many different flowers and greens.
