Wedding crochet

Wedding season is upon us! And, if you are a crocheter or even a crafter, there are many things that you can make if you or someone that you know is having an upcoming wedding.

When I got married in 2003 I made quite a few things. I hadn't learned to crochet yet, but between my mom and I, we did a lot ourselves. We made centerpieces for the tables with roses and little vases and that found at out local craft store. My favorite was the Hershey kiss roses. They were a little more time consuming but I loved how they looked! is a site on how to do those. This site uses colored plastic but I used fabric in my wedding colors. (Image to the right is not mine. It's from the website I provided.)

About 4 years ago a family member got married and asked if I would help with a flower basked for her flower girl and a ring bearer pillow for her ring bearer. I was so excited! Of course, by this time I was crocheting almost everything. I had never made anything like these things, but that didn't stop me from wanting to try! Here are my end results.

For the flower girl basked I used this pattern, I followed the pattern as written, just making the handle a little longer. I also wanted to make the handle sturdier so I used 2 layers and in between I put a pipe cleaner so it would keep it's shape. 

Next was the ring bear pillow. For this I just made 2 squares the size of the pillow and sewed them together over the little pillow. I just used a shell stitch for the square that had a straight edge as the end result so that I could sew the 2 sides together easier. I put scalloped edge around the pillow and decorated it in the wedding colors. 

I loved how these came out!

There are many other items from flowers, center pieces, to even a wedding dress that you can crochet yourself! If you have any questions or have done your own wedding crafts that you would like to share, please let me know!
