DIY Cake topper – Make your own “something new” with a unique cake topper. Skip the traditional bride and groom figures and deck out your cake with this one-of-a-kind display. You’ll need a 5-inch Styrofoam round flat piece, a 4-inch Styrofoam ball (cut in half) and multiple pins and earrings.
Brooch wedding bouquet – A brooch bouquet, also referred to as a pin bouquet, makes for a standout piece to carry with you down the aisle. Some brides use heirloom pieces to create the look while others ask the women who attend their bridal shower to bring a pin to be used in the bouquet. If you want a bouquet filled with real flowers rather than pins, you can always fasten a single brooch onto the ribbon wrapped around the stems of your flowers for a delicate, vintage touch.
Hair pieces – If you want to actually wear your brooch, ask your hairstylist to fasten the pin after styling your hair. This is a great, retro chic alternative for the bride who doesn’t necessarily want to wear a veil with a long train.
