I blogged about a random purchase a few months ago. Here’s the explanation, copy & pasted from that entry, for the lazy.
I wanted to honor deceased loved ones in a quiet way. While, the lit candles, reserved chair, etc. work for some, it’s still not subtle enough for me and Mr. Lime. I want to honor Mr. Lime’s grandmother, who pretty much raised him, my grandfather who passed away not too long ago and with whom I was pretty close despite a gap of two generations and thousands of miles, and my father. I’ve seen bouquet locket images out there, so I found the above earrings to somehow integrate into my bouquet. There are four slots for photos, so I’ll have one extra. While searching for lockets, my treasure troves were Etsy, eBay, and Red Envelope.
Here is the finished product:
I was going to try to find something to put in the 2nd locket, but lazy bride has decided to forget it and just honor those that truly had a big role in our lives. I took off the earring hooks and put them aside, as I can maybe use them later. I edited photos in Photoshop, printed them on photo paper, and cut them in tiny circles. I’ll just have my florist somehow pin or tie them onto my bouquet.
