I’ve painted pottery in the past for weddings. it’s super meaningful because it’s handpainted. Look for a Paint Your Own Pottery Store, give them a call, and ask for help. I worked at one in college and I loved helping people. I promise it’s not as hard as it sounds.

My friend is currently needle pointing a pillow with a monogram for her sibling’s wedding. It’s super easy and a very personal touch. Another thought is somehow framing her boquet (drying some flowers and framing them perhaps if you are her MOH).

Another thought would be something each of you could do, but you’d have to do it in a way that didn’t dictate, ‘you must do this’. One thought would be using a grandmothers silver for cake cutting. In our family my mom’s older sister got married 6 months before her and my uncle chose to use “Jesu Joy of Man’s Desire” for my aunt to walk down the aisle and it has now become a family tradition. I’m very excited to follow in this family tradition that my mom and her sister started many years ago.

What if you as your something blue got a white hankey and had it monogramed in blue with kinda with your names and something like “Jane and Kate, sisters & friends forever” then you could each carry it as your “something blue” but it would also just be sentimental and between the two of you?

My mom’s family has a wedding hankie that we have all used. I think it goes all the way back to my mother’s grandmother.  And it’s not just the women in our family.. my brother’s wife had it for her wedding as well.  We just wrap the hankie around the stem of the bouquet during the ceremony.  You could make something like that.  Part of me wishes that the initials of everyone who used it were also embroidered in to it, so you could do that.
