Brides who want to incorporate something old, something borrowed or something shiny to their wedding day decor are going nuts for brooches. There are several ways to incorporate these pretty pins into your wedding day, including:
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.
