You can surround your bouquet stem, or make a hanky.  I wish my mom had kept hers for this or part of her dress.

I like the idea of putting it around your bouquet 🙂  Or maybe you could make something to decorate your chair at the reception?

I thought about using the lace to wrap around my bouquet, but decided to wear a veil for the ceremony so used the lace there.  Even if you don’t want to wear a veil, it could still also work really well in a headpiece – a lace flower, perhaps? or lace around another flower? or just a small piece of it on a comb?

I agree with the posters that said to put it around your bouquet..that would be very special..if you choose to make a garter, are you going to throw it or keep it?

A friend of mine incorporated her mum’s into her hair. If you have any sort of updo, your hairdresser should be able to weave it in

oooh, keep whatever you don’t use for your wedding and maybe make or have christening outfit for your babies if you do that sort of thing.
