Brooch Bouquets, Miranda Lambert's new fashion trend!

Ever since Miranda Lambert was photographed at her wedding to Blake Shelton with her brooch bouquet, the trend has gone through the roof!! I have to admit if I were walking down the isle again this is definitely what i would do!
This is the bouquet she walked down the isle with. From what I have read, when she has one of her bridal showers, each guest was asked to bring a vintage or new broach to make her bouquet. What a great idea!
So, I gathered these photos from several artists, all to be found on Etsy, to show you some of the different styles and colors. They range in price from $200-$1200 depending on the size.
I can't think of a better way to recycle vintage pieces of jewelry,
and you'll have the bouquet to cherish always.
I loved this purple one, I can see a winter bride choosing this one.
This vintage piece just leaves me in awe. Can you imagine how many brooches it takes to just make one! It's no wonder they're a bit high. Yet, I hear real flowers are even more, and they'll wilt!
I always think of Irish weddings when I see purple bouquets. 
Something blue.
All the colors perfect for a fall wedding.
Even a button bouquet looks beautiful when accented with brooches and bling!
Oh wow, takes your breath away doesn't it1
These  are mini-bouquets, possibly for the bridesmaids or the flower girl?
You can have all white or every color in the rainbow like this one. It's hard to pick a favorite.
I love this color teal with the red mixed in.
This one had more of a vintage feel because of the gold and muted colors.
What a fun summer or spring bouquet with every color! This way you won't have to chose just one color. Or maybe you have one bouquet for the wedding and one for the reception! Just be careful when you throw the bouquet, this one might leave a bump! If you are interested in finding any of these gorgeous pieces go to Etsy.com and look to your heart's desire.

Would you believe that I was JUST looking at these on ETSY LAST NIGHT??!?!?!?!

Seriously!!! I'm getting lots of brooches to make some little trees or small wreathes for the holidays and have been searching EBAY and ETSY. I found these and went bananas--LOVE them!

I didn't know about her wedding/using them--but it makes sense since she's a Southern girl who likes vintage things--I adore M.L.

And YES! I remember the Ralph Lauren safari series. He's wonderful!!! CLASSIC!!!

Hugs,
Lana

These brooch bouquets are gorgeous! I have collected these enamel flower pins for quite some time and they are getting more difficult to come by at my thrifty budget and now I know what people are doing with them.
