Bouquet Locket[s]

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.

    What a great way to hold them close. I’ve been looking for a way to acknowledge my fiance’s deceased mom without highlighting the sadness inherent in it. Thank you for another idea!

    I got my locket pin to affix to my bouquet wrap from Etsy.com for about $7. It is beautiful, and has a real vintage look. The pin almost looks like an ornate butterfly. The center opens up to reveal two of our beloved relatives.

    That’s wonderful! I understand what you mean about being subtle. Mr. Snow Pea is wearing a tie pin that belonged to his grandfather. They were incredibly close.

    [...] This is my initial mock-up thrown together sometime last year and was for the bridesmaids when we were still having a bridal party. Since I purchased enough for 3 bridesmaids and my own, larger bouquet, I have quite a few to work with to make mine a lot fuller. This bouquet is wrapped with a royal blue ribbon then overwrapped with a translucent white ribbon with silver stars. I might switch it up to the orange and blue ribbons. Or even just the blue ribbon and use the orange to hang my memory lockets from. My what? [...]
