    I would like to add a brooch to my dress since it doesn't have any beading or other detail. The problem is, I don't know where the best place to put it would be. I know a lot of brides remove a flower or bow from their dress and put it there, but my dress doesn't seem to have an obvious plave to put it (at least not to me!) Any ideas?

      Do you have a pic of the back of your dress?

          Courtney, I love your dress - i have to be honest - i think you should skip the brooch. as much as i like it, there isn't a 'natural' place to put it.

          what does your veil look like?

          can you wear a really cool necklace or bracelet?

          BTW - i have been meaning to ask you this? did you go to NYU for undergrad?

            I'm all about brooches but like Alyssa said there is no "natural" spot to put it, and your dress is so pretty, I love it the way it is. Adding accessories will dress it up totally. I nice necklace, or earrings will totally do the trick!!!!!!! If you've already purchased the brooch and want to use it, you can utilize it in so many ways. What type of hand bag do you have, a clutch? If so it would look fab on that. Or to your flowers. etc...

              Thanks, Alyssa! I agree, there is not reallly a place to put the brooch. I will put it in my bouquet instead!

              Nope, I did not go to NYU! I'm a Purdue and IU grad!

                Im looking for a place to buy a brooch as well. I had a flower on my dress that I had removed and now it looks empty!

                  I agree with every one else that there is not "natural" place to put the brooch. But if your dead set on it what about adding a sash around your waist and add the brooch to that?

                    I would not put the brooch on but wear fancy jewelry instead.

                      If you are going to bustle your dress, why not put the brooch on the bustle? I have seen this before and I love the way it looks. Your brooch is really cute, where did you get it?
