I knit & crochet, and if I were you, I would just make one for the Maid/Matron of Honor.  I think they will go from being a fun project to a daunting exercise if you do six in addition to all your wedding planning.  A lot of shawls are like making a blanket they require so much yarn and such small hooks.

I agree with the PP I would either do 1 for your Maid/Matron of Honor or none. That is going to be a lot of work.

Yeah that sounds like a LOT of work!  Make them slippers if you want something a little easier they can re-use. You can alll wear them getting ready – the soles can be different colors for different girls.

There’s several neat looking free shawl patterns on Ravelry and several even use worsted sot they work up pretty quickly. Honestly though, I’d either just make one for your Maid/Matron of Honor or none at all.

If you still want to make them something, I suggest slippers, barefoot sandals, ar a small bag. I ended up making little drawstring bags for my girls so they could use them as make up bags, laundry coin bags, or in the case of one of them, a dice bag.
