Bridal Brooch Bouquets

Wedding is a very important event for each of the girl (with rare exceptions). Wedding day is very special and extraordinary and in most cases needs a long time to prepare: Venue, entertainment, food, music, wedding cake, etc. All just have to be perfect.  Every bride is different, so every wedding has to be different. One of the most important accesories bride must have is a bouquet. I has to be unique for every bride.

In recent years, more and more brides choose bouquets made not from the real flowers, but from hand made brooches. It is a very interesting idea. Bouquets like this have a few important advantages compared to the traditional flower  bouquets. They will not wilt troughout the long day, can be prepared in advance to avoid the hassle on the day and these bouquets can be saved and passed on the future generations, which I think could become a very nice tradition. Hoever, brooch bouquets have one important dissadvantage - weight. A bride has to carry it most of the day, so unless the bouquet is made from very light weight materials or the bride has done some weight lifting in the gym when preparing for the wedding, it can become too heavy.
