I think it’s a great idea. I’m putting a locket on my bouquet with my grandparents pictures.

I think the dog tags would be enough for your something old. Sorry, but I think having some of the ashes with you is a little creepy, especially if they spilled out of the charm! I would be worried about that.

I think in theory, it is very sweet and nostalgice, but I have to agree with @OrchidLove: that “having some of the ashes with you is a little creepy, especially if they spilled out of the charm”.

That is a great idea, so sad about your doggy.

I don’t know if “creepy” is the right word, but maybe just not the right way to think of your dog. Maybe there is a picture of you 2 you could make into something, or maybe a locket with a picture of you in it? I think the dog tags sewed to the inside of the dress would be cute too.

@lindyjo: I completely understand the sentiment.  I went through a LOT when we put her to sleep and I know I was wrecked for a while after that, so I completely feel your pain and grief.  I have my old dog’s tag on my key chain so I can think of her every day! 

ETA: (part of my post didn’t show up???).  That said, I think in a week or two you’ll realize the ashes idea may not be the best way to have her with you.  I do LOVE the ideas mentioned above about having her picture in a locket!
