Brooch bouquets

Sentimental jewellery transformed into heirloom keepsakes

If flowers aren't your cup of tea, a brooch bouquet makes a unique alternative that will last forever. From delicate and vintage to bold and striking, no two are ever the same and each one is designed to capture your personality and showcase the sentimental things you choose to include in it. Here you'll find information about my brooch bouquets, including costs, how to order and some nice little ideas for you to think about.

Price

As each bouquet is completely unique, prices vary depending on the size and shape, however to give you a rough idea and a starting point, your bouquet is likely to start at around £190, depending on the size and shape you'd like and what you'd like included in it. I offer all my brides the chance to pay in instalments to spread the cost if needs be and it's great if you can give me an idea of your budget so I can suggest some ideas that will work for you.

The price quoted for your bouquet includes a beautiful keepsake box to keep it protected until your special day and a Steller story documenting the process of making your bouquet, so you can see how all the details came together.

Ordering

Ordering your bouquet couldn't be easier; the first thing you need to do is get in touch and tell me a little bit about yourself and what you're looking for. Let me know when your wedding date is and an idea of the shape you like and I'll be in touch to chat through some options. Let me know where you're based too so that I can work out shipping and delivery options. 

If you live locally to Weston Super Mare, you're more than welcome to pop by, have a cup of tea and some cake and talk through your ideas and see some samples but I'm equally happy to travel to you if you're based between Bristol and Taunton, free of charge. Not to worry if you're further afield though as I will call you to talk through your ideas. I love hearing all about your engagement and wedding plans as this helps me to incorporate your personality into your bouquet.

Payment

Once we've talked through your ideas, I'll put together a quote for you and then set up an invoice so that you can pay securely online. I take a non-refundable £50 deposit when you confirm your order to put towards some of the materials and then we can arrange a payment schedule for the remaining amount. If you're paying in instalments, I'll notify you a week before your payment is due so you know when to make payment and you don't have to worry about anything.

Timescale

The more time I have the better to make sure that I can source all the brooches and jewellery for your bouquet. At least 4 - 6 months notice is ideal.

I'll keep you updated with progress while I'm making your bouquet and take pictures and videos of its progress to put it into a little story that I'll send to you after your wedding.

Adding your own jewellery

If you'd like to add some sentimental jewellery of your own, I'd be happy to incorporate them into your bouquet. It's a lovely way of remembering loved ones who are no longer with you. Here are a few ideas you could use for your bouquet:

Go bold with striking blues and rich golds

Ask each member of your family or your friends to donate a bead or button to your bouquet - that way they'll be accompanying you down the aisle. Better yet, get your maid of honour to coordinate everyone and you can guess who donated each piece after the wedding;

Include an old watch from one of your parents or grandparents - I'll set it to the time of your wedding and display it in a prominent position;

Coordinate your bridesmaids with a wrist corsage that will compliment your bouquet so all your girls can sparkle with you. I'll combine an element from each of their corsages into your bouquet as well. Prices start from £50.
