My DIY Brooch Bouquet and Brooch Boutonniere!!! *Pics!*
Hey girls!!!

Well I FINALLY went to my mom's this weekend with my Aunt (the one who made my awesome invitations ;) ) and set to work!!! This is what I accomplished today and it was really cute to work on it with everyone, even my uncles were wiring my brooches! My FH told me what to do to his boutonniere and this is what we came up with. I think it's ...okay.. but I guess it's pretty good. :) He likes it a lot and that's what matters!

My something blue is a peacock brooch that my FH bought me years ago so it works perfectly in my bouquet (considering its swarovski crystals) and fits perfectly in with my peacock wedding ;)

SO girls, what do you think?! Tomorrow we start work on our peacock centerpieces! I'll post pics of them as soon as we figure out what to do with them!

I love it!!! If you have any good tips, please let me know. I looove your peacock brooch! Also, what material did you use underneath the brooches? We are doing one for my mom and FMIL....smaller of course.

@Patrice & Rebecca - I actually just bought ivory colored hydrangeas and only used the flowers, not the leaves. Bought/borrowed/gathered earrings, brooches, pins, hair clips, etc. Anything that was sparkly lol. I used floral wire to make stems for the pieces and got a bouquet cone thingy that helped hold it in place and stuck everything through! :) Wrapped the stems and wires up with ribbon, and ta da! :)

I think the boutineire (sp?) is my fave of all three, but they're all definitely very nice and sparkly -- great work! :-)

How big is it in comparison to your body? I know that sounds weird but it looks ginormous! Beautiful but huge!!! And I can't really see a lot of you in your picture but you look... tiny. I love it and I'm not saying anything should change, just curious!
