The yarn bouquet all started in 2014. Little did I know at the time, that it would turn into what it means to me today.
Earlier that year my now husband proposed to me, and I had said yes.
A little time went by and we started looking at wedding items. My first considerations were the dress and bouquet.
I had no idea what I wanted for a dress. And searching online only made my list of choices longer.
I did however know that I wanted to be able to keep my bouquet forever.
Don’t get me wrong here. Flowers are beautiful. I love flowers.
And wedding bouquets do look stunning!
But they don’t last forever.
I still have the small blue and white silk flower bouquet that my husband gave me at prom. I wanted my wedding bouquet to last just as long.
As a keen knitter I already knew then that my bouquet would be made from yarn.
So I started searching the Internet for bouquets of yarn.
Surprisingly, I didn’t come across much. However, there was one that spoke out to me. It was this from Green Wedding Shoes (you’ll need to scroll down a bit).
I liked the simplicity of it. I liked the inclusion of the leaves. But I wasn’t keen on how bulky and “thrown together” it looked.
Yet over the coming weeks, I kept thinking about it.
I knew my bouquet would need to be similar, but more delicate.
An affirmation of my life and yarn, intertwined with each other, as I married the love of my life.
