That is SO sweet! There was a bride around here somewhere who attached 1″ pictures of her deceased grandparents to her bouquet!

That’s amazingly sweet – I teared up reading it! I think it’s a beautiful way to commemorate your grandfather. I myself pinned my grandmother’s brooch to my bouquet. We were kindered spirits. =)

@dubej:  that is so lovely. I think some bees have charms in their bouquet to remember loved ones

I pinned a brooch that belonged to my grandmother onto my bouquet. It would be a lovely gesture.

I love the idea.  I used my recently deceased grandma’s rosary (she was very religious and actually slept with it under her pillow) as my something old and pinned it to my bouquet.

I’m so sorry about your loss – he sounds like such a great man. I think that is a beautiful way to have him a part of the wedding ! It is pretty common to do. While I do not have any pins/brooches to attach to my bouquet my great grandma always wore this blue dress and I was thinking of attaching it to the slip of my dress for something blue

@dubej:  I love this!  My uncle (who was like the grandfather I never had) passed away and I’m trying to figure out a way to include his memory in the wedding…so when I read this…it totally made me tear up.
