Wedding Pennies

I finally got these two wedding memento pennies done for my daughters.  I’ve been meaning to do them, but didn’t really think they were terribly interested.  The weddings were in 2015 and 2016.  My daughters LOVE them - makes me happy knowing they really are interested, they just don’t ask for these things.

I wanted to include their wedding party colors, as well as a little piece of lace from the day.  The lace was significant for both of them. One daughter was married on her grandparent’s anniversary, and I CUT my mom’s wedding dress up to make straps and a belt for her dress. (See my face of horror  HERE).  My other daughter had me CUT my dress for her headpiece.  HERE is that beautiful chunk of my dress!

So both memento pennies have a little lace attached.  It just seemed like it had to be there.

Now the search is on for 2019 pennies for the upcoming babies, graduations and weddings.  I really do love making little mementos for such special occasions.


  1. Fascinating I love this whole penny thing. I like how you used the dress for the two girls it may not be what you originally wanted but it works🕊❤🕊

  2. So glad your daughters appreciate them - we do sometimes wonder, don't we?

  3. And they are so beautiful! You have taken this little idea and made it into ART!

  4. Those are beautiful and fabulous!!! :)

  5. First of all, I can't believe the weddings were that 'long ago'! I very much remember all the wonderful ideas for the dresses and cutting up wedding gowns and creating that gorgeous veil from the lace from your own gown. (So glad the photographer thought to drape it!) I don't have children, but I don't think I could handle all the emotions.

    These keepsake penny ice drops have even more meaning coming 'after' the weddings and will be cherished forever.
    Excellent idea and presentation! I'm sure your daughters are very impressed with your many talents!


Thanks for your thoughts - I read and appreciate every one!
