Whether you’ve been enamored with your great-grandmother’s pearls since kindergarten or simply love the Sapphire earrings your sister wore at her wedding, as your own wedding day approaches, this is the perfect time to turn those precious family heirlooms into an oh-so-memorable part of your celebration.

Here are a few ways to incorporate a sentimental treasure into your wedding.

CLOSE TO YOUR HEART

This is an endearing option for the bride that literally wants something close to her heart. Your seamstress can artfully sew your grandmother’s embroidered handkerchief into the bodice lining of your dress.  With this idea, the heirloom will be a part of every moment of your day.

We do suggest that you have a skilled seamstress or professional tailor do this for you to insure that there isn’t accidental damage to either your heirloom or your dress.

ARTFULLY DISPLAYED

Is there a stunning brooch your mother and her mother wore?  Or perhaps a delicate charm from your aunt’s enchanting charm bracelet?  Your florist can stylishly add either to your bouquet sash.  This placement will not only highlight the sentimental beauty but will also create a one-of-a-kind bouquet detail.

PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE

Marry the past with the present to begin your future.  Colloborate with a jewelry designer to create a stunning piece of jewelry that utilizes stones from a relative’s wedding ring, pendant or bracelet.

In addition to jewelry, other family treasures can be reimagined for your celebration.  Is there a family tartan you want to incorporate?  An expert tailor can create custom bow ties for the groom and groomsmen. Or perhaps a piece of furniture holds wonderful memories…incorporate it into your wedding or reception décor.
