    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.

    Make her a silk drawstring bag with the lace appliqued on it or make the bag out of the lace if you have enough. My mom made me one for my wedding but she sewed a lacy handkerchief on it that was hers. I used it for the "money" dance at my reception. Just hung it from my wrist. Not sure if they do that anymore. lol

    Could a cute wedding purse be embellished with it? Something for her hair. A Bible cover?

    When I got married, when they took off my veil, they tied an apron on my that was made from my Moms wedding dress. It had six pockets with three little blue babies, and three little pink bablies. It meant that now you are a housewife, and someday a mother. Of course that was back in the sixties and it was very touching then. But now? Hmmmm....
