After you’ve carefully selected your dress, the wedding theme, the venue and a wow-factor cake, it’s now time to organise your bouquet.
If you want something unique that incorporates your wedding colours and even family heirlooms, Lindsey Hunter from Get Knotted has come up with 10 top tips for choosing your dream brooch bouquet.
The bouquet’s shape
The great thing about brooch bouquets are that they can be any shape you want them to be! So go unique and choose an eye-catching shape for your own bouquet. A heart, teardrop or crescent-shaped bouquet would look wonderful.
Add your own style
Do you prefer brooches and jewellery in yellow or white gold? Add some personal touches and add some special details that scream you.
Incorporate your colour scheme
Consider your wedding colour scheme in your bouquet. Add a just few hints of brights or pastels or go all out and really create a bouquet with the wow factor.
Do you have any family brooches or jewellery that you would like to include in your bouquet? This is a great way to have a loved one close to you on your special day.
Be wary of your budget
Do you like vintage-inspired brooches and jewellery or actual vintage pieces? Be aware that older pieces may be more expensive.
Consider whether you’d like other items added to your bouquet. These can include items such as lace, pearls, crystals or even a broken watch that can be set to the date and time of your ceremony.
Add some height
Think about whether you would like to add any height and movement to your bouquet. Crystals or pearls can be added to wire stems to give this fantastic result.
Consider your dress
Make sure the bouquet you’ve designed works with the dress you’ve chosen.
How tall are you?
Remember to consider your height compared to the size of your bouquet. If you are petite then a smaller posy bouquet would be more suitable.
Remember not to throw your brooch bouquet because they’re heavy! If you want to throw a bouquet ask your florist to make a small, inexpensive posy for someone to catch.
