    Here is my dress and veil on me and the back of it on the model...I would like a brooch for the back of the dress where the material gathers.

      I like the one with the burgundy stone, I think it ties everything together nicely.

      I can't believe your wedding is so close!

        If I had to choose I would pick #3. I like 2 the best but ummm it would be on your butt and parts are red, and well your a women.. you see where I'm going.. IMO I wouldn't add one. But that is just me.

          I have been going back and forth about it myself Tammy but it looked so plain yesterday at my 2nd fitting even the seamstress suggested getting a brooch. i at least want to have it with me so i can decide last minute KWIM?

            I did like the first one until I read Tammy's post... and now that's all I can think of!

              I think that you should go for #1. It's really pretty and will add a little pop. It looks like it will sit pretty high up on your bum so I wouldn't really worry about people thinking it's anything other than a brooch.

              It will tie in perfectly with your shoes and clutch.

                I love the first one! So pretty! But I have to agree with Tammy that the placement of it could make or break it. Good idea to have it on hand and decide after you are all dressed and ready.

                  lol Tammy - you ruined it for me! haha

                  I voted for #1 though - I agree that it helps tie everything together

                    I love the idea of the red but maybe so it doesn't look like you got a visit from an unwanted friend try getting something that isn't just a big red dot in the middle I attached one below (less then $20) to explain what I am trying to describe. Hope it helps :)

                      I like #1 I think it will be a nice touch of color! Also, I don't think anyone will think "Aunt flow" came to town!
