It’s June and weddings are happening all around us. It’s too late to crochet a lot of stuff for a wedding this June, but it got me to thinking…… What goodies are out there to use our crochet hooks to create beautiful, one of a kind, heirloom quality enhancements for any wedding? Here are some ideas:

Free wedding dress pattern (& some other cool patterns)


A pretty bridal handkerchief which could become something blue with a tiny blue flower on it. offers a free garter pattern which would work up in a snap.

And, what about this for the ringbearer:

Or, adapt this pretty one for the ringbearer:

Bride’s headpiece:

This would look really pretty in white with some flowers attached to it:

    To whom it may concern: Is there any way to find patterns on how to crochet a border on a handkerchief. My grandmother started a tradition of giving the bride and her maids handkerchieves with borders crotched in the colors of the wedding. With her passing I’ve been asked to continue the tradition for the cousins wedding. But unfortunately I didn’t inheriate her patterns if there was one. All I have are a few used hankies she had when she made me a hankie box. Been to library and it seems the only thing there are show and tell books. Authors too busy showing off their collections and what they seen in other peoples collections of ready made stuff. NO patterns and how tos. Short of sitting and literally counting out stitches in one of my hankies. I was hoping to make it easy since there will be at least 8. Hoping to find a pattern I just have to follow. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated and I thank you for your time.

    Yes, I encountered several websites while doing a google search for “crochet wedding” which had patterns for crocheting an edging on handkerchiefs. At they had a pattern for crocheting the entire hankie, but if you just follow the pattern for the border you can use it on a cloth hankie, too.

    Thank you so much for these ideas! I found out that my husband’s co-worker was having a wedding on a shoestring budget in one week, and she’s doing without many of the things that she might like. I don’t have many skills I can offer, but at least I can crochet something to make her big day more special!
