Today’s pretty little thing comes from Omnibus Driver, who pointed me toward oliviamoon. There, for a mere $15 each, brides can outfit their bridal bouquets and their bridesmaids’ bouquets with gorgeous itty-bitty monogrammed bouquet charms. Aren’t they sweet?
As I hinted at, bouquet charms aren’t just for the bride – sentimental bridesmaids love monogrammed bouquet charms because they’re not wondering whose bouquet is whose during the reception. And they do make a lovely keepsake that even people like me who think that quite a lot of keepsakes are more like throwthemoutassoonasyougethomesakes (imirite?!) will actually hold onto into the future.
And, hey, $15! All of oliviamoon’s bouquet charms have mirrored backs that make the final lipstick check a snap. Hint: They’re also good for checking for rogue arugula between the teeth at the reception. If, however, monograms aren’t your thing, there are also scads of people making memorial bouquet charms with photos that honor a deceased loved one – like those linked from JeanM – or more to the point, bouquet charms featuring any image you like, from pictures of your beloved as a child or a snap of Fluffy, who was sadly not invited to attend the wedding. There are even DIY bouquet charm kits that let you make your own using Scrabble tiles (which are included) and crafting glue!
