Megan's Beautiful Brooch Bouquet

Our precious daughter, Megan, will soon marry the love of her life, Kendall. On a December evening they will have a lovely ceremony amid twinkling candles, iced branches and peacock feathers. Adding to the sparkle will be her beautiful brooch bouquet. We worked on it together, finding vintage brooches at antique shops, online and even in thrift stores. Adding to those are pins that belonged to Megan, my dear mother and some of my own. A few from her favorite aunt and cousin are on their way to join this collection. The bouquet is anchored in a Victorian style silver tussie mussie that has a charmed engraved with the couples monogram hanging from it. Won't this be a special remembrance of her wedding?

Hi,
I absolutely LOVE your bouquet! I am actually in the process of making my own for our wedding in October (also with peacock feathers)! I'm trying to use a tussy mussy for the holder, but can't figure out how to make it work with the stems of the brooches. Is there anyway you could give me a few tips on how you fit them in the holder and got them to hold their shape? I would really appreciate it... mcr1498@hotmail.com
