I love vintage brooches.
I actually have a small collection of brooches from the 1930s and 1940s, and I so enjoy wearing them. They're just right for brightening up the lapel of my overcoat on a winter day, pinning a wayward scarf in place, adding a little sparkle to a casual cardigan, or even dressing up a ponytail for a special occasion. I almost always get compliments on them because they're so lovely and quite different from today's costume jewelry, and I enjoy being able to tell the story of each of the pieces I own.
Vintage brooches can be a great accent for your wedding, too! I've pulled together a few easy ideas for incorporating them into your celebration, and I'll bet you can think of even more ways to use them on your wedding day.
Don't have any vintage brooches lying around? You can find them at vintage boutiques and sometimes at thrift shops, or you can always find them on ebay. If you're more interested in the look than in the provenance of the jewelry, you can even find them at craft stores or on crafting supply websites.
