    I have a piece of lace left over from my wedding dress. It isn't large and is sort of triangular in shape. Do you have any suggestions as to how we might incorporate it in her wedding. She has purchased her dress.

    Thank you.

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Can it be hemmed and turned into a lovely hanky? Or perhaps added to and cover the ring pillow?

    One of my Grandma's gave me a bible that Grandpa gave her to carry at their wedding, it was very much used. My other Grandma (her name was Esther too) gave me a handkerchief that Grandpa gave her to carry at their wedding. I put the handkerchief inside the bible and carried them both with a small bouquet of flowers. You may not need to do anything with it. Ask your granddaughter if she has any ideas.
    I still have both of those together on my mantel and think of my Grandma's all the time.
