Bouquet Gems: Brooches and Pins for your Bridal Bouquet

Updated on July 15, 2015

Add a Special Touch to your Wedding with Bridal Bouquet Brooches or Pins

Personalize your wedding flowers by adding a pin or brooch to your bridal bouquet. Carry something that represents you or perhaps a memory of someone special down the aisle with you. It's one of the hottest wedding flower trends and a wonderful way to personalize your wedding day florals.

Pins and Brooches are available in all shapes, sizes, themes, colors, with or without gemstones, and in various metals. My own bouquet had a giraffe pin; as we were married at the zoo. I smile each time I open my jewelry box thinking about that beautiful day.

Your brooch could be a family heirloom, or something borrowed (bonus if it's blue!), or select something new that represent you or your husband to be. Your bridal bouquet brooch will become a trinket to be treasured long after the bridal bouquet has been discarded. You could even pass the pin along to your daughter on her wedding day, starting a new family tradition.

Enjoy this selection of brooches and pins that will hopefully inspire you to find one to add to your bouquet.

      I thought you were posting about a bouquet made of brooches. I love that idea. Brooches are the only jewellery I wear, though I seldom wear them either. But they are the only jewels you can wear without having something touching your skin, or accenting parts of the body which don't still look thin and 20-something any more.
