A Lovely Twist: Brooch Bouquets





(Images via 1, 2)

***

I love to come across nontraditional twists in fashion, art, television and especially weddings! I feel certain that the brooch bouquet trend is no secret to you, but if it is allow me to introduce you. Lovely readers, meet the versatile (and sparkly) twist on the traditional floral bouquet. I'm not sure that I would ever stray from the traditional bouquet, but I love looking at and dreaming about these fanciful alternatives. . .

Wishing you a wonderful Tuesday, especially those of you (like me) whose long weekend came to a close yesterday. Wasn't that extra day off fantastic?

Hugs to you, sweet friends!

I love this idea... haven't seen it before! How fun and it would keep forever.. or you could take it apart and wear all of the lovely brooches. xo

These are so fantastic, and then you could share with all your best girls - x

Such a great idea I think. Wedding bouquets cost so much and rarely last 24 hours.This would be a great keepsake.

What a creative idea. Plus you can keep your bouquet forever this way. Beautiful!

I think its a great idea, especially if the brooches have a special meaning!

I went to wedding last year where the bride had used antique brooches on her cake and they were gorgeous (of course, removed before serving! LOL)
