So I’ll make this story as brief as possible 🙂
My aunt (who was also my godmother) passed away unexpectedly when I was 12. We were very close – she was like my second mom, as I always told her.
We chose our wedding colors (plum and gold) a while ago, but today I was going through my “junk drawer” (don’t we all have one?! Lol) and I stumbled across an old jewelry box I had forgotten all about. And in it were 2 of my aunt’s rings that I was given after her passing. And one of them just so happens to be plum and gold 🙂
Pics below. It looks more reddish purple with the flash, but it’s really more of a plum purple in person.
I plan on incorporating it into my bouquet when I get married. If you incorporated any meaningful items into your bouquet, please share pics!

I don’t have any pics yet, but I had my one living dog’s collar wrapped around the bouquet, and the 4 dogs’ tags pinned to the stems.

In the years before he died, my awesome farmer grandpa took up beading jewelry as a hobby. I have dozens of beaded bracelets, so I’m going to wrap one on the bouquet that has blue beads. I also have a very sentimental gold necklace with a religious pendant from my grandmother on the other side, who also has passed, and will hold that too. I’m really excited about the idea of holding tokens from those we loved!

Such a nice thing to do!
I incorporated a necklace that my Grandma would wear all the time into my bouquet. She passed away in 2012, and I was her oldest grandkid.
You can kind of see the necklace here, as it hangs. It had “V” on it for her name, Vera.

I love all of the ideas, ladies! I hadn’t thought about doing small framed pictures of my deceased loved ones. I’ll definitely be doing that as well! I lost my grandma a year ago and I don’t have any of her jewelry or anything, so a pic of her pinned to my bouquet is definitely a sweet touch <3

All such beautiful ideas.
All the married ladies in my family have had a jeweled butterfly among the flowers of their bouquets, in honor of the death of a love one who passed several years go.

My daughter made this beaded tie for her bouquet. She borrowed the little heart from me since she gave it to me when she was little. Her Dad bought her the ring with her name on it the day she was born. The little blue bead was off one of her baby barettes. I saved that for a long time. She got the cross from her grandma. The other two charms were given to her by special friends.

My wedding is in April, but I already have this photo charm to add to my bouquet. I received it and immediately teared up. It is so beautiful and great quality – the picture on etsy doesn’t do it justice! https://www.etsy.com/transaction/1033545746

I encorporated my grandmother’s wedding band and my now husband’s mothers pearls in my bouquet.
