That's such an excellent idea!! I'm getting married in four months, and both my fiance and I have lost very important people in our lives in the past several years. We were trying to find ways to include their memories into our ceremonies, and this is such a wonderful idea.

Thank you so much for sharing!!

I think I will save this as a surprise for my fiance.

Aw..how sad!

They look very pretty hanging, though.  The ribbon you used is very lovely.

I ripped all the bouquets and centerpieces apart, chucked the detritus and have about 4 or 5 big arrangements around the house. I hated to see the hydrangeas die!

Hey Sweets, did you get your charms done yet? I can't wait to see them. I love that ribbon I found too, with the stripes of varying shades of green. It is absolutely perfect for me!

I'm working on our personal wedding photo album, and going through the photos I realized I didn't ever post any decent shots of our bouquets with the charms on them. Here's a shot of the charms in action. Also, a shot of the bouquet. My sister and I chose each flower ourselves, and my Mom and I made the bouqets the day of the wedding.








Here is my husband's charms. I attached them to his bout', the bout' was fairly crumpled and sagging from hugging and heat at this point. Poor little hydrangea!

Dang! I attached my charms the other day but I like the way you did yours way better. I wrapped a piece of blue material, sewn into a wide ribbon, around as the base and then put a less wide pink ribbon and tiny white ribbon around that so that the blue showed through. I left the pink and white ones long because my sister said she liked 'em like that, and then I tied 3 charms onto the white one. I like them like that, but I also kinda feel like it doesn't look that great. Once I get the dress made, I'll hold the bouquet up and see if I still like it and if I don't, I'm totally doing it like yours.

I make a lot of photo charms for jewelry I sell, to personalize it. I was trying to think of a way to honour my late Father and Grandfather, and this seemed like the least obtrusive way of doing it. And I like ribbons and charms and wanted to include as much meaning in my wedding as possible. So, this worked out well.

Thanks Sweets. Seems like I am coming across some different shots now that I am doing our wedding album. I already did one for my Mom and Grandmother, but that was of their favourite shots. So, I'm re-exploring the pictures!

Kster, I want to see a photo of how you did that. My main concern with hanging them was that they would hang nicely over my hand as I carried the bouquet and that I could remove them easily later. But, you're doing silks, right? So, you don't have to worry about that last part.

I am indeed doing silks. I just really like how yours are right there on your hand and there's no way people won't see them. I tried to take action pictures but it's hard to do by yourself, without finding someplace even to take timed shots. Once I find my camera and someone to help take pics, I'll post some.
