      That's gorgeous! Mixing the flowers with the brooches is just the right amount of tradition, and bling! Good job

                    Ok, I made mine for my wedding....kind of. I prepared all of the brooches ahead of time and then showed my florist a pic of the original brooch/flower bouquet on here. It came out EXACTLY like I wanted, but be warned, my arm was tired of holding it after all the pic, dang it was heavy. All of my guests loved it. It was so unique and added that extra bling I was looking for. I got all of my brooches off eBay. I stuck to the advice of setting a price limit. I got each of mine for $4 or less. I also made some from my BM's bouquets. For theirs I got them each a starfish and then one thing that reflected their personality - I wound up getting these from Michaels in the necklace/bead section.

                      It's so beautiful, and you looked gorgeous!! Wow, stunning!

                       

                      You just put my mind at ease. I've been wondering how this will look with a white dress and white roses... thank you for posting!! So I guess I'll have to start working on my arm muscles now!
