Something Sparkly: Eight Ways to Rock a Brooch for Your Wedding

Brooches have long been the answer when it comes to brides’ “something old.” They’re often meaningful family heirlooms, and they bring their own unique sense of style to the table, whether they’re traditional cameos or more embellished pieces covered in sparkling stones.

But by no means does a brooch have to have age if it’s just a hint of luxe sparkle that you’re after. A shiny new one (or a few) will work just as effectively and—who knows?—might even be the beginning of a new family tradition. Wherever yours happens to come from, try pinning it discreetly to the swath of silk encircling your bouquet, tucking it into a pretty up ‘do, or even adding it as an embellishment to your dress. Old or new, it’ll certainly be something special.
