I love weddings but I hated to plan one. They can be so expensive and you have things that you will never use again. Why do we insist on spending so much money? I love country type weddings. They are so beautiful and yet so much cheaper than to have. Often they are held outside in the flower garden or in a large yard. They are so pretty and yet so elegant. I found the cutest patterns for many things that you will need while planning your wedding. They are so elegant and yet so easy and cheap to make. These patterns include: The Flower Girl Basket Ring Bear Pillow Flower Girl HeadPiece These patterns cose less than $3.00 apiece but anyone who crochets can look at the pictue and crochet up one without the pattern. They are so lovely. You can see the pictures of these here. http://www.cutecrochet.com/wedding/wedding.html I had a friend make these for her daughters wedding and she just looked at the pictues and did not use any patterns. They were beautiful and saved them alot of money.

I am not planning a wedding but will be attening one next month . My little one's are going to be the flower girls for my sister who is getting married on my anniversary . I found when planning my wedding that it was exciting but at the same time nerve wracking to make sure that everything was done on time and making sure we had the money to do what we wanted done and to make sure everyone was doing what they said they were going to . My step mom is planning my sisters wedding and I will have to show her these links that you have posted because not only is she planning my sisters wedding but plans at least one a year . She is always asked to help out as she has a lot of good idea's and although she says she really doesn't have the time , she actually enjoys helping others .

My sister is getting married in June. I will have to tell her about those. She hasn't decided for sure whether or not she even wants to have a flower girl and ring bearer, though. She's afraid it would be too hard to choose. She has two nieces and a nephew, and her finance has two nieces and a nephew, too. So they would have a hard time choosing which kids to use. I will definitely tell her about those, though. She might be able to make them herself if she decides she wants children in the wedding.

My oldest daughter got married while she was in collage. My youngest got married after she had her major but was working on her graduate degree.

I'm not planning a wedding in the near future, but I think these patterns would be great! They would also be much more likely to become treasured family items that could be passed on to others, than some of the store bought items that people buy!

Those are very cute patterns. I always make the ring bearer's pillow, money bag, and garter as a bridal shower gift. My pillows are usually heart-shaped and made of satin and lace. The money bag is made of the same materials.

I never planned a wedding, not even my own. I had two witnesses at the chapel. Came home to a small family gathering and that was it. Oh yes I did buy my own flowers and the boubiniers for the witnesses my grandparents and that was it.
