How to make a Brooch Bouquet for your Florida Beach Wedding

Sunset Beach Wedding bride's have had some fantastic bouquets over the years!  Many brides opt for artificial flowers for their destination beach wedding.  One neat idea is to make a brooch bouquet (this works for seashells as well!)  This article from Wedding Magazine shows you how:

How to make a brooch bouquet

Perfect for your wedding reception, this sparkling floral alternative will add some extra pretty to your celebration



You will need...


- Rose garlands in pink and light cream (we used Sass & Belle) 

- Brooches

- Hessian and ribbon

- Glue gun

- Floristry tape

- Floral wire

- Wirecutters



Wind the pink rose garland into a spiral. Attach three lengths of floristry wire to the bottom, twisting the ends around it until they feel secure. Pull these wires together to form the stem of the bouquet. 


Cut blooms from the cream garland and attach each one to floristry wire, placing randomly within the bouquet until it looks full. Attach floristry wire to the back of several brooches using a blob of hot glue.


Insert the brooches within the bouquet, again holding the wires together to add to the stem. Once you've added all the brooches and blooms, hold all of the wires together and wrap floristry tape around them.


Cut some hessian and wrap over the stem, then a length of white ribbon, to make it comfortable to hold.


Tip! Wrap the leftover leaves from the cream garland around the top of the stem to disguise the bottoms of the flowers.
