Hi, loves! Happy Monday! That was a heck of a great weekend, am I right? Here it was 80 and sunny, like a throwback August beach day. There was a couple getting married on Saturday outside and it was spectacular weather. I was really happy for them because a) it’s September in Michigan, so anything goes, and b) they got a serious amount of beautiful fall foliage that just began over at Stony Creek Metropark. It was stunning.

Where to Buy Brooches in Bulk
I love to do research on where to buy the best wedding finds. You know this about me if you’ve been an avid EB reader for some time. I love finding cheap alternatives to (typically) expensive finds, but only when the quality is just as good or better.
After talking about these brooch bouquets for so long, I wondered where to buy rhinestone brooches in bulk for a project of my very own. And I, for one, was tired of clicking on “cheap wedding brooches” only to find the quality was poor. Who wants to create a DIY project using cheaply-made accessories? Not me.
So, the hunt was on. And after reading so many hopeful sources of where to buy brooches in bulk, I found too many reviewers feeling jilted on their bulk accumulation of wedding brooches that turned out to be cheaply made, poor quality, or seriously unfit for a wedding.
And then… I found Totally Dazzled!
Totally Dazzled is the ultimate place to buy rhinestone brooches cheap, in bulk, and with quality that surpasses others. It’s also an awesome resource for DIY brooch project inspiration. So, if you know you want to use brooches somehow / someway in your decor, but you’re not sure how, Totally Dazzled will help you get it done.
What we also love about Totally Dazzled is how passionate Natalie is about her products. She sources her brooches from reputable places because she wants her customers to be completely satisfied with the way these brooches look and sparkle. She loves to design DIY projects using brooches, rhinestone sliders, napkin rings, and more from her collection; you can even watch her YouTube videos where she’ll show you how to use them.
For your wedding, there are many places you might not have even thought of adding a little sparkle. A few brooches go a long way to make a statement: you can incorporate brooches on table number frames (just use a little hot glue!) or centerpiece vases, as shown above. You can embellish escort cards, menus, programs, place cards, favors — you name it!
And these brooches are affordable, so you can add plenty of bling throughout your space without blowing through your budget.
Here are some of my favorite ways Totally Dazzled has transformed regular wedding accessories into statement pieces. (You can find these specific pieces here.)
You can easily bling out your wedding shoes with a pair of rhinestone brooches. Just glue the brooches to a shoe clip and you can slide them on and off at anytime. This means you can change up the look of any of your shoes by making several pairs — think rhinestones,pearls, or a combination of brooch styles. These rhinestone brooches-turned-shoe-clips are a dazzling addition to your bridesmaids shoes, too!
A strand of pearls and these beautiful brooches team up to make one of the prettiest chair decorations ever. Just get pearl strands for decorating and your favorite rhinestone and pearl brooches. I can imagine these tied to the backs of chairs at a head table or sweetheart table. I especially love them on the backs of these Chiavari chairs.
One of the most-asked questions in our inbox whenever we talk about brooch bouquets or fake flower bouquets is where to buy brooches in bulk to make them yourself. Brides love to make their own (last-forever!) brooch bouquet or add just a few brooches to a fresh flower bouquet for a statement piece.
The variety of brooches from Totally Dazzled are perfect for making your own brooch bouquet. You can make your own complete bouquet with these brooches, one of these jeweled bouquet holders, these bouquet pins, and add a larger foam ball like this to keep it secure.
Natalie offers brooches in gold or silver to coordinate with your favorite metal.
I love the large pearl brooches in this bouquet:
Here’s an example of a flower bouquet with just a few brooches mixed in:
Wedding Dress Sash
If you’d like to make your own wedding dress sash, buy brooches in bulk along with chiffon flower rosettes or satin flowers. Use this to attach your brooches and flowers to a wide satin ribbon. Use double-faced satin ribbon like this for the best result in a 1 1/2″ or 2″ size, depending on how large you’d like it to be.
Isn’t it beautiful?
