No bouquet toss for these bejeweled blossoms! San Juan Capistrano, Calif.-based artist and floral designer Amanda Heer turns grandmother's brooches into one-of-a kind bridal bouquets, creating sculptural, personal keepsakes that last a lifetime. Inspired by her own collection of vintage baubles, Heer made her first brooch bouquet 10 years ago and has been creating them for brides ever since. The creations take as little as a week to make, depending on size, and start at $350 with the bride providing the brooches; they can go up to as much as $800 if Heer has to procure the pins. Heer also makes bridesmaid bouquets, flower girl wands, boutonnières, mother-of-the-bride wristlets and even cake toppers. For more information, visit www.fantasyfloraldesigns.com.
