With my wedding 17 weeks away I have started gathering the things I need to make the bouquet I want. As I was searching the thousands of boards on pinterest I found the Brooch Bouquets and they are gorgeous. In my infinite search on google, I found thousands of ways to do this. However, I found a 5 minute video on You Tube that showed me how to wire the brooches so they are extremely secure.
So here is my start:
I bought ivory burlap flowers from Hobby Lobby that looked like this:
Then I tipped the roses and hydrangeas with my wedding colors: Coral, Charcoal, and Sapphire
They now look like this:
I’m currently in the process of wiring the brooches so I have brooch stems that look like this:
I have completed 12 and it is a process! All I can suggest is that you have a pair of pliers because your fingers will hurt if you do not…..
So for now I am here:
But since it took me 8 weeks to decide my colors and 6 weeks to say yes to the dress, it could change from this to something completely different.
All I know is I am blessed to be marrying a true Man of God who loves me like no other. I am also blessed to have an awesome maid of honor and my oldest daughter to help me. I don’t think they know what they signed up for because they haven’t had to wire these things yet! LOL
We have all this left plus more that has not arrived yet:
Stay tuned for more updates to come!!!
God Bless and Goodnight,
A Blessed Woman
PS……. www.aliexpress.com is a fabulous site for these brooches. I only paid $56 for all these pictured here with free shipping. I had to wait 3 weeks for delivery but it’s worth the wait for the quality. These are heavy brooches! I have had a wonderful experience with Ali Express.
