If you don’t like it, can you get a lacy one and pretend it was made with some relative’s wedding dress and it would mean so much if you use it so you appreciate the wedding pillow, but since you are using all of the other things you would love to use your relative’s pillow?  Or maybe that your Maid/Matron of Honor bought you one and she’s been going through a rough time and you would really love to use theirs but you think she needs you to use hers?

I just feel like if you alter the pillow, they’ll notice that too.

That being said, it’s a pretty brilliant blank slate.  You can do so much with that pillow; sew lace over it, put colored ribbon around the edges, sew some pearl beads on, etc.  You can easily rip out the rosebuds and the flower and re-do things, but it’ll look like a completely different pillow.  Maybe just replacing the rosebuds and ribbon with colored rosebuds and ribbon would help if you want to go more subtle?

Is there a way to remove the flower and ribbons? If you can do that- you can then buy materials and make your own DIY flower and place it in the middle

 

 

Just an idea?

If you have anyone who has passed you can take the pillow and add a charm or a small hanging picture of them and put it on a chair to represent there being at the wedding.
