Wedding locket

This bride Julia wore a locket featuring her parents' wedding photo from 34 years before. What a romantic idea.

So sweet. When we got married, I attacked a small locket to my bouquet with a picture of my Grandparents in it.

Love this idea! I've been on a hunt for a really gorgeous, antique locket, and they're harder to find than you might think.

at my sisters wedding I gave her a locket with a photo of my Grannie on her wedding day on one side and her best friend on the other, both of whom had unfortunately passed away before she wed. It was my way of having them there with her as she walked down the aisle (or, across a flower laden meadow in her case!). Maybe not quite as romantic as this bride, but very sentimental and also a lovely keepsake from the day.

I do not say this very often nor write about it... but this wedding is definitely one of genuine loveliness! I love everything. everything about it.

Angela Brock said...

So sweet and quaint! I love the intimate feel of it - not too showy.

Jessica said...

I did a similar thing- pinned the locket my grandfather gave to my grandmother as a wedding gift to the stem of my bouquet. It has a sapphire in it, and belongs to my mom now, so it was both my something borrowed and something blue.

pillow pets sir horse is so popular with kids. They are perfect for birthdays, holidays, and any other special occasion. It’s a pet and also a pillow.You simply undo the Velcro strap and the Pillow Pet pops open into a full size pillow. Just fold it up, reattach the Velcro, and it is a cuddly animal again.
