I made a brooch bouquet as well – I don’t have any pictures but

 for the lenght – I held it up in front of me the same way as I’m going to carry it down the aisle – and then I worked out a lenght that worked best for me and was most comfortable . I don’t really think there is a set lenght, whatever works for you as you’re the one carrying it ;o) 

 

to “tie” them all together I used white ducttape (its def. not going anywhere now) and afterwards I wrapped it in ribbon so you cannot see the tape and hotglued the ribbon 

I can send you pictures in 2 weeks when I’m back in the states again if you would like to see 

– just pm me if you want pics

Looks pretty.  As for the length, I just used the same length that the flowers already had.  Sorry can’t help there.  Here is mine.  I wanted the bling of a brooch bouquet but the softness of flowers so it’s half and half.  And my handle which I love the way it turned out.

Yours looks great!! (blurry and all! 🙂 )

there’s a bee post that has a link for the tutorial on how to make your handle and it looks time consuming, but it’s GORGEOUS!

Check that out and then lets see how yours turns out! My wedding isn’t until September so, I have time to finish mine and post pics! 🙂

The handle was actually pretty easy to do.  I had some left over material from the top part of the bouquet.  I measured it so that it would wrap around the handle but cut about 1/4″ extra in the length and width. The extra 1/4″ I folded in and ironed so it would give it a clean edge.  I wrapped it and hot glued it.

I took the ribbon and glued the top just enough to hold it in place.  Then you just wrap criss cross to get the X design.  Just make sure it is evenly spaced.  I put a dot of hot glue at each X to hold it in place.  Since the ribbon is satiny and so is the handle I didn’t want to risk it slipping.  At the bottom where the ends came together I hot glued them in place.  Then I just added the bling with fabric glue.

As my daughter would say, “Easy peasy mac n cheesy!” LOL
