5 Reasons You Probably Need a Bridal Brooch Bouquet

by Emma Arendoski

Do you need a bridal brooch bouquet? If you’re reading this post, there’s a good chance you just might. But why? Today we’re sharing five reasons why along with a plethora of wedding brooch bouquet ideas to inspire you. And, while we use the super-strong word need lightly, you probably will really, really want one. And we don’t blame you. Here are five reasons why.

Wedding Brooch Bouquet Ideas

You probably need a bridal brooch bouquet if…

1. You want the flexibility of coordinating your colors, exactly.

Want pink, but a specific, ultra-bright pink that matches your bridesmaid dresses to a T? You probably need a bridal brooch bouquet.

2. Your wedding will be held in an extremely hot, humid area.

This is especially true if your wedding is going to be held outdoors, where the sun and humidity is particularly cruel to beautiful blooms. Plus, it will be held by you, a bride who may or may not be sweating profusely after hours of hair and makeup and taking pre-ceremony photos outside. This is also applicable if you are not interested in having to spritz your bouquet with water to keep it fresh, or don’t want to have a cooler nearby to keep the bouquet(s) until it’s time for the ceremony to begin. Brooch bouquets look amazing at any temperature.

3. You want a bouquet that lasts forever.

A fresh flower bouquet won’t last. It just won’t. It won’t even smell fantastic after a few days. Sure, you can hang it upside down and dry it out and arrange it in a pretty vase, but will it ever look exactly as it did on your wedding day? No. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. I had a fresh flower bouquet and throwing it away was pretty devastating. So why didn’t I have a bridal brooch bouquet? BECAUSE I DIDN’T KNOW IT EXISTED! If I had, you bet I would have looked into it because I could still gaze at it on my desk.

4. You want to incorporate an heirloom or memento.

A bridal brooch bouquet is made with brooches attached to metal ‘stems’. With that being said, the flexibility of a brooch bouquet allows you to add special mementos or heirloom pieces to your custom bouquet. Your grandmother’s brooch? Added. The brooch your mother pinned to her dress sash in her own wedding? Added. It’s easy — and when you have professional brooch bouquet makers (like The Ritzy Rose featured here) at the helm, you bet it will look FANTASTIC.

5. You want something different.

Fresh flowers are gorgeous, this is true; but, what if you want something different? Unique? Unlike anyone else’s? A brooch bouquet has been a trend for the last few years, but it is only growing in popularity. So, if you’re a discerning bride who wants a beautiful, bright, colorful, keepsake bouquet that lasts forever and is something your cousin isn’t having at HER wedding (oh, you’re so competitive), you probably need a brooch bouquet.

A sixth and unofficial point to state is that a wedding brooch bouquet is also a great way to invest your budget. It costs more than a traditional fresh bouquet, but since it lasts forever, you’re pretty much investing in a gorgeous piece that you’ll be able to pass down (or keep on that lovely china cabinet in the vase from your bridal shower for years to come).

So, what do you think? Are you going to have a brooch bouquet? Why or why not? Share your thoughts below in our comments section + we’ll discuss.
