As promised, I wanted to share with you the bride’s bouquet from Saturday night. The brooch bouquet is not a new concept to me, but how she came about her bouquet is definitely different than what I’ve seen before. For her bridal shower back home, the hostess had asked all the guests to bring a brooch to give to the bride. It could be new, borrowed, old, blue, etc. The collection of brooches she received was really amazing. Some belonged to her grandmother, some to a deceased cousin…they all had a very special meaning.

A little something blue….

A little Irish shamrock for luck…

When I saw the bouquet I thought perhaps she didn’t want our little seahorse on there, so I gave it directly to her instead of pinning it on the bouquet. But I was wrong, in fact, they even had a special place reserved for it!

Really, just beautiful….
