    I love broach bouquets, but your dress is already covered in so much bling, which by the way I love. I just think the added brooch bouquet bling may put you way over the top.

    I voted for #3 because it’s different enough from your dress that it doesn’t look like an “extension” of it, if that makes sense. Basically, it’s different enough that it doesn’t blend in and disappear against your dress, but it’s not a harsh contrast against your dress like #4. I like #4 too, but I think it would distract from the detail of your dress.

    @corals: Honestly, I would go for fresh flowers. I think they would provide the perfect contrast to your dress. The brooch bouquet would just get lost in all that fabulous dress bling.

    Don’t forget that you always have the option to bling out a fresh flower bouquet as well. There are plenty of options to do this, and you could get the sparkle you want along with the lushness of fresh flowers!

    These are done with silks, but they could easily be accomplished with fresh if you have a creative florist. http://ricelakeweddingpages.com/?p=548

    I think the bouquets linguo42 posted may be the perfect compromise.
