- Wedding: March 2012
Ok so I tried doing a brooch boquet but now I’m second guessing it. Please give your honest feedback on how it turned out.
Ooooo. It’s very pretty. I think I see a watch in there. Tell us the story behind that. That is a very unique touch.
If it were my bouquet, the only thing I would add is something at the bottom to make it seem a little bigger. Like this
It doesn’t have to be lace. Could be satin or flowers or feathers. Are you going to wrap the handle in ribbon?
make sure your setting the time on that watch to the “date of your wedding” example.. july fourth so big hand 6 and little hand 4… cute idea!
i think it needs more shape if you want me to be HONESt.. one side looks like it has bigger peices.. maybe loose two of the big peices and replace with four of the smaller ones? i noticed that in photos 2 and 4.
overall i like it.. and think they are so much fun.. i am creating all of my own flowers.. its cheaper and its “something to do” lol.
i would add a fluff base like bearsmomma said to do.. and maybe some pearl or rhinestone spring pins like this…

GOOD LUCK!!! 😀
Thanks for all the helpful advise! I definetly want to add some ribbon to the bottom to make it look bigger. I like the idea of the spring pins I haven’t thought about that.
The watch was my grandfathers that passed away and I wanted to incorporate something of his. I also have my great grandfathers tie pin in there. Most of the broochs are from my grandmothers and family members but I also wanted to do something for the important men in my life 🙂 I have my fiances highschool pin in there somewhere also. I like the suggestion of setting the watch to the wedding day and time!
Thank you so much ladies. Y’all have been a big help!
