A touching tribute ...

I think I am going to steal this idea from Mrs. Hot Cocoa .... 




I love how the lockets are small and delicate and sentimental without being overly sad and obvious. I am thinking of attaching them to our dads' boutonnieres (for parents that they have lost) and the bouquets of our moms (each of their dads has passed) and grandma's (for their husbands and/or parents). I think it is such a lovely way to honor the loved ones we have lost.


Bottom line, I dig it. And I'm not the only one! The Alternative Bride posted about this too!

That is so sweet! I love that kind of subtle tribute...its like those family members are there with you.

I agree. I just bought an open faced locket charm to put a picture of my late father in and attach to my bouquet. Good idea, thanks for sharing.
