Vintage Brooch Bouquet

The vintage brooch bouquet is one of the latest trends in non-floral bouquets. A vintage brooch bouquet is a collection of ecletic vintage brooches assembled to take the form of a bouquet.

Not only are these brooch bouquets stunning, they make a fantastic keepsake from your wedding.

Kristin, who had an intimate wedding in Austin, Texas had a brooch bouquet at her wedding.

“I wanted a 50′s themed wedding and the brooch bouquet was perfect,” she says.

Kristin and her husband scoured second hand stores and antique stores in Michigan and Arizona for the brooches. Most cost between $2-$12 each. In total she spent $250 on brooches.

Amanda Heer at Fantasy Floral Design created the brooch bouquet (she added some of her brooches to the bouquet.) Total cost for the vintage brooch bouquet was $600.

What did she do with her bouquet after the wedding?

“I have it in a vase on my table,” she says.

    Thank you, Paula! We had so much fun finding the brooches and it is such a nice keepsake from the wedding! Very ecofriendly and easy manage with a destination wedding.

    i love this idea and so doesn't my fiance! and i almost thought of doing it but don't you think $600 is a bit excessive for one small bouquet?? or was it all bouquets were $600 together?? i mean regular flowers may have cost a ton cheaper, and you still could have achieved that vintage look??

    It was about $350 to have Amanda put the bouquet together. I bought the brooches myself..you can spend as much as you want on them or have people give them as gifts at a shower. We eloped secretly..so we didn't have the option. Flowers are quite pricey and don't last forever like my bouquet. It is certainly your choice..but we loved it.

    @Kristin - how many brooches normally go into a bouquet. I'm really considering this so have started collecting and the wedding is a while away so still have time but find it hard to figure out how many I will need

    I will have to find out from Kristin and will post!

    Hi Naois-
    I used brooches and antique earrings in the bouquet. I probably bought about 6 pair of earrings and 20-25 brooches. Amanda who made my bouquet added some to it. I think that she put about 6 in there. Hope that helps! I looked at thrift stores and antique stores.

    I have seen posy jewellery, but never a posy made out of jewellery! Incredible! Once again inspired!

    Love love love this idea! Im trying to incorporate unique ideas into the must have elements of my wedding and this fits perfect! Could you give post a few more details about how it was built? I'm in the country so I will have to put it together myself, was there a foam type core that the brooches/earrings pinned into? Any tips you can post would be so helpful! Thank you!
