Flower Alternatives: Vintage Brooches

This is one of my favorite alternatives to bridal flowers- the vintage brooch bouquet! This particular category could lend itself to being a time-intensive project- searching for pieces you like and want to include, not to mention possibly spending quite a bit of money trying to find enough pieces to make up your bouquet. And if you want to make them for your bridesmaids, too… now we're talking a LOT of work and maybe a lot of money. But look at the result! So unique and beautiful- something you could treasure as a keepsake for years to come! I could see this in a vase in my house, a quirky little centerpiece. 🙂

Check out these gorgeous pieces:

Krista was lucky enough to get these beautiful pieces from her grandmother! Jackpot! I would definitely suggest checking with family members and friends- having pieces of them in your wedding day bouquet would be oh-so-special! I can't wait to see how Krista's bouquet turns out. 🙂

This one is a ‘mixed media' bouquet with brooches, buttons, felt and beads! Very unique!

I really really love the ones with the large brightly colored enamel pieces- they really stand out! What do you think of this idea?
