I don't know about you ladies, but I love a good DIY project! Crafted bouquets have been a growing trend in wedding decor and provide a one-of-a-kind embellishment for any bride. The brooch bouquet is a fun and easy way to turn your something old into something completely new! A great way to get started making your own brooch bouquet is to rummage through jewelry counters at pawn shops and vintage boutiques. Family members can also provide beautiful heirlooms that make brooch bouquets timeless and remarkably sentimental. Another way to get fantastic pieces is to have guests bring brooches as gifts at the bridal shower. No two bouquets will ever be the same and I love the elegance and individuality they add to the bride's walk down the aisle.

Felt bouquets are another non-traditional approach that present complete originality and flair. There's no need to worry about floral allergies and the bouquet can still be crafted to resemble a beautiful floral arrangement. Brides with a love for emotive colors can really let their personality shine with all the possibilities and choices felt has to offer. Similar to felt bouquets, paper bouquets are unexpected and inventive, showing off a bride's creative spirit. I love that a bride has total creative freedom with paper (or tissue paper) bouquets since the possibilities are endless!

Remember, the most important thing about your wedding day is that it's about YOU.

Stop and smell the roses,
