This listing is for a bouquet that I'll create using my vintage brooches. It will have the same country chic feel, although no two bouquets are the same. It will be finished with a vintage lace stem.
Miranda's bouquet measured 7-8" across at the widest point (21" in circumference). You will have this bouquet long after your wedding day is over. You can hand it down to your daughter to carry at her wedding. Or, pick out a few pieces from the bouquet and give them to your bridesmaids as gifts. Choose your favorite piece and add it to a chain to create a necklace that you can wear everyday (or contact me if you want me to create a custom piece of jewelry from your bouquet after the wedding). This will become an instant heirloom that you will treasure forever.
When you see one of these in person, you will realize how much depth, texture and detail goes into it! I also like to add comical little touches such as a rubber bumble bee from a 1960s hat-maker's shop perched on a flower, or a butterfly that just landed on a leaf. The floral and rhinestone brooches date back to the 1920s, and include 30s pins, 40s, 50s and 60s era brooches. The art deco pieces are really gorgeous, and take on a completley modern look when I arrange them all together.
I use pieces from my own collection, so you don't have to worry about finding them, unless you want to! Many brides send me their collections of jewelry from friends, family or their own flea-marketing. I will of course reduce the price if you use your own, so contact me if you're thinking about it. Some ideas for personal pieces, many of which I have ready in my studio... I can add a cross, a star of David, something patriotic, or an initial. You can even send me a piece of jewelry that is important to you (maybe you have one of your grandmother's brooches, your grandfather's military pins or a childhood locket), and I can place it front & center on the stem of the bouquet.
Your custom bouquet can be absolutely any color, or combination of colors. Just tell me what your wedding colors are and we'll begin dreaming up your creation. Something fun about these bouquets is that you can stray from your wedding color palette and carry whatever you want. Convo me and we can figure out the perfect bouquet colors for you. Having a Fall wedding? You might do rich yellows, bronze tones and orange hues. Is your wedding in December? Let me create a frosty silver, crystal and icy pale blue work of art for you. The possibilities are endless!
Tell me your ideas, let's collaborate in the design process. Then proudly carry (ok- show off) the bouquet that you helped design!
If you were inspired by Miranda Lambert's bouquet, you found the right designer! Ever since my bouquet made it into the news and all over wedding blogs, there are quite a few other shops popping up that make their version of my bridal bouquets. Be sure to choose a designer who has a strong background in bridal and retail business, and make sure you see plenty of examples of their work! I will take the time get to know you over several emails and phone conversations, and I'll use my design experience to create exactly what you want. You are also always welcome to come to the studio for a design consultation, and to pick out the pieces for your bouquet! My background is in bridal, product and accessory design, and I've worked for some of the biggest corporate design firms in the nation, so you can trust me!
