Bouquet charms

A few ideas for simple, meaningful, and lasting accessories for your beautiful bouquet. Yes, even a bouquet can dress up with a little jewelry!

Wonderful custom creations from Etsy seller Hazelnut Cottage. Sweet accent for your wedding day, and wonderful memento for after. Made of handstamped oxidized sterling.

I always get a lot of requests for special ways to remember a parent or grandparent that has passed away. I love these photo charms from planetjill as a special way to keep loved ones close to you on your wedding day. I had a bride a few years ago that did a charm for each set of her grandparents, using their wedding day pictures. She carried so many years of love on that bouquet handle! (And I have to say--I have one of these charms myself with Hayes's little one-year old face, and it was beautifully made).

And, monogram charms for your bridesmaids. Alphaneenee will put any words you'd like on the back. How sweet! A favorite inside joke from 2nd grade would be perfect for that lifelong friend, and what about a quick phrase to bring back memories of a favorite family vacation for your sister's bouquet charm?

Oh I love that idea! And I am loving charms lately. Bought a book by Sally Jean and I am going to try to make some of my own this summer. I was thinking it would be a sweet little thing to give my clients.
