Brooch Bouquets by Carole Clifford (BBs by CC)
Your wedding bouquets and/or other events where a unique “floral” arrangement is desired
Here is a little bit about Carole and her Brooch Bouquets…
I am the only designer of brooch bouquets in Northeast Florida and southeast Georgia. I provide all the jewelry pieces needed for each bouquet, but I also encourage the brides to ask family members and friends to contribute pieces for their bouquet to create a true family heirloom.
Absolutely adore designing the perfect bouquet for each individual bride. Seeing their eyes light up when they see the final bouquet makes the whole process a delight!!
One bride had brooches from five generations of her family included in her bouquet … a definite family heirloom! Another bride was given all the pieces for her bouquet by her sorority sisters at a “brooch shower”.
Advice Carole gives her brides…
Relax and enjoy the day, it goes by so quickly. Having been married for over 40 years helps me to assure the brides-to-be that they too can have a successful marriage!
Pricing on brooch bouquets…
Prices for the bouquets are based on the size and number of pieces that are included in the bouquet. The petite bouquet (15-25 pieces), usually used for a flower girl is $150; the small (25-35 pieces) is $250; the medium(40-50 pieces) is $400; the large(50-60 pieces) is $500, and the extra-large(65-75 pieces) is $600.
I love encouraging the brides to ask grandparents, aunts, etc. to donate pieces for their bouquet or to ask their bridesmaids to host a brooch shower.
When should a bride contact you?
A minimum of two months prior to the wedding. This time allows the luxury of several meetings to refine jewelry choices and colors before the actual work begins. Depending on size, it takes from 6 to 30 hours to design and construct the bouquet.
Do you offer any other products or services?
Brooches can be purchased individually for inclusion in table decorations, cake decorations, bridesmaid gifts, etc.
