Think flowers are the only way to go? Not anymore. The bridal bouquet has taken a turn toward the sparkly, made partially or entirely of jewels.
The brooch bouquet is one of the most popular, especially custom-made ones that incorporate family jewelry for an extra-meaningful touch. But any jewelry can be used, from gem-laden hat pins and cocktail rings to strands of pearls and waterfall-earrings, which can make dramatic accents.
You can make your own, buy one pre-made or go high-end with a custom creation. There are companies that focus entirely on this unique piece of wedding bling.
