So a growing wedding trend is brooch bouquets, and ever since I saw one I knew I HAD to have one....
I bought these at Michaels for $1.99 each; reg. $3.99, and gave them to the florist that I hired to put together as my bouquet and the bouquets for my girls.
They weren't plastic, or latex, but "Real Touch". You could not tell they were fake, unless you touched them! They were a long time idea to have as my bouquet, and the bouquet for my bridesmaids, because I did not see the sense of having real flowers. They just die and wilt, and most of the wedding flowers that are chosen by brides don't dry pretty.
I wanted my bridesmaids to be able to have something to remember our wedding day; once the wedding we was over, they could place them in a nice vase, in their homes, and use it as a decorative piece.
I also purchased an extra calla lily for my husbands boutonierre and boutonierres for the groomsmen, so that everyone's flowers looked consistant.
