Vintage Brooches in Weddings

1. Add vintage brooches to your bouquet.

Have you heard of / seen / dreamed of a vintage brooch bouquet? We love the idea of long-lasting bouquets made from brooches instead of fresh flowers — they last forever!

2. Pin it to your clutch purse.

If your brooch has a pinback, add it to your clutch purse for a mix of something old with something new.
