wedding dress lace necklace seen on offbeat bride

These necklaces actually have a piece of lace from a wedding dress embedded inside resin. It looks lovely, right? The best part is that you could have a piece of your own dress as a keepsake, a piece of someone else's dress (mom's, grandma's, etc.) to wear AT the wedding, or make a few and pass them out as bridesmaids' or mother-of-the-bride gifts. You can snag it from Etsy seller LACEstudio. This got me thinking: what other wedding jewelry could serve as a memorial? Let's check out what we found.

This one would be great for Harry Potter fans (especially those who remember the significance of the snitch in the last book!
I loooove this book-shaped locket. It has spots for two photographs inside.
This vintage-inspired locket actually holds three photos.

This House of Harlowe piece is actually a big cocktail ring locket, which is definitely large enough to hold a good photo.
I know some of you are planning a “until death do us part” wedding and this locket might be just the ticket.

This matchbox locket tutorial is technically for a Mother's Day gift, but you could totally translate this into a sweet little DIY project and include anyone's photo that you want to remember. Or forgo the photo and put in a keepsake instead.

    • omg that’s amazing! i’m absolutely doing this with a piece of the lace trim from my wedding dress when i married my late husband. it might be kind of weird to wear it when i marry my dude though. hmmm. although he probably wouldn’t mind if i did. he’s just awesome like that.

  1. My mom wants me to carry a little cross on me somewhere…she wore it in her wedding and my granny before her. I am not Christian but I know it means a lot to her…so I’ll be carrying it in either a) my shoe. or b) my bra. probably my bra : )

  2. I plan on getting my mom the top pendant with lace from her dress for a gift.

    My bouquet will be wrapped in lace from her dress and I am wearing jewelry that belonged to each of my grandmothers as a memorial.

  3. i love that resin pendant. i might have that done with a bit of the lace from my gown that i made when i married my late husband. not to wear on my wedding day when i marry my future mr, but to have in general.

  4. I wore a small locket on a long chain that had dirt from my baby’s burial site. It felt like a way to bring her with us on our special day.
