ok, so i had a brain storm. once we are married, i can give him a sweater. Smiley so im going to knit one, and give it to him at the reception. does this sound ok? should i give it to him in private? i really like the idea of showing off the sweater though! Smiley
any thoughts (or recommend any boy sweater patterns? i may just have to wait for the new knitty. Smiley)

speaking of the new knitty, "I do" would be a great accessory for you to wear depending on your dress.  Also, Guernsey sweaters are a traditional wedding gift from a bride to her new husband, so i think a sweater for him is a great idea.

Just wanted to bring this thread back to life because I was browsing through archives (I'm bored, and craftster amuses me endlessly, what can I say) and I LOVE the idea of knitting something for my wedding (not set yet but the BF and I are talking).  Call me insane but I'd even consider making that wedding dress that was linked.  I really like the contrast from the bodice to the skirt.

I likt the idea of knitting him his wedding day socks.  And I love the idea of the knitted flowers.  I'm going to have to do that, one day!

Debbies only get respect in the knitting world.  How unfair is that?

Because Poe wrote on both of them.

Anyone up for a Jasper Fforde swap?

personally, being a floral designer, I would say to knit a hanky type thing to carry with your bouquet.  Hankies were traditionally carried by the bride with her bouquet, something that would be passed down.  You could knit yours for now (if the wedding isn't over already), and give it to your daughter to carry on her wedding day.

oh, just to mention, my aunt had her grandmother crochet her wedding dress.  She was dead set on it.  Everyone thought it would be ugly, couldn't imagine it...a pale yellow crocheted wedding dress--even if it was in the 70's.  But, by all reports, it was beautiful.  I've only seen pics, since I was very little.  She keeps it nicely preserved, and about every year or so, some museum, commity, organization, or something begs to display it.  So now lots of people still get to enjoy it. 

Just had to share.
