The fresh flower bouquet alternative, The Broach Bouquet

Looking for a different option other than the floral bridal bouquet? Look no further, the broach bouquet is the fresh flower alternative.   Broach bouquets can be a great do-it-yourself project for a bride and her friends and family; collecting beautiful vintage pieces from garage sales and antique stores. Broach bouquets can also be custom made in your wedding color scheme or theme. The colors and styles are limitless…. Here are some great websites that offer custom bridal broach bouquets. bluepetyl.com Artfire.com http://www.etsy.com/shop/broochbouquets *Remember all these pieces are custom made to order, so brides give yourself enough time to place your order.  4-6 months is an average turnaround time.  Some websites offer rush building/shipping, but it is always better to order early just in case you run into a snaffu.*

Recipe for a beautiful Bridal Bouquet

What makes this bouquet so stunning? So beautiful? How do you make something like this?  These are all questions that we hear often from our brides going thru our portfolio books.  So, we decided to explain the process of making this bridal bouquet. First we start out with our four main flowers Ivory roses White Ranuculas White Dahlias White Freesia Our next step was to start building the bouquet, we started with building the base of Ivory Roses. We next added 10 stems of ivory Dahlias throughout the roses. After adding the Dahlias we added in 10 stems of Ivory Freesia. After adding in the Freesias we added in 15 White Ranuculas. We added accents of large, chunky pearls throughout the bouquet. Adding greenery around the edge of the bouquet. Wrapping the bridal bouquet in ivory satin ribbon. Finishing touches on the bouquet ribbon.  Clusters of pearls. And the final product…… Thank you Chuck Childers Photography

ideas that inspire us…

The rustic look is very popular with our brides right now; the idea of vintage and romantic all wrapped up into one look. When we saw this picture in a local magazine, we had to take a picture of it and share it with everyone. It is an older window ledge filled with sheet moss, succulents and individual containers of clustered flowers and twigs.
