The BigDay is coming faster and faster! I have lost momentum on the planning a little due to two disappointing bridesmaid dress purchases, a troublesome foreign currency payment and a sudden realisation that my wedding wasn't going to look like a Martha Stuart Pinterest board unless I spend millions on it.
Good old Mum to the rescue though. A long time ago I decided that I wanted a brooch bouquet. My mum has now set herself the challenge of making it, and wow it's hard! We thought we'd easily find some broken brooches in the charity shops but these have all been very expensive.
We've Googled a lot and decided the best way to start is with silk flowers as a base decorated with fancy buttons, earrings and any other sparkly bits we can find. We've twisted a few on to wire and will inter-twine them somehow! I'm a bit worried about how heavy the whole thing will be she it's finished but hey maybe my arms will look toned as I heave it down the aisle! Still so much to do and only 14weeks to go. Eek. Anyone got any advice for building a brooch bouquet?!!
