I officially asked my Grand-father to walk me down the isle today. He cried and said of course, he would be honoured to. Then he sat me down and told me to stay there. He came out with the most gorgious wooden blanket box I have ever seen, and he made it himself for me. He said it is to keep all my wedding stuff in. He is so sweet.

So far this is what is inside
12 glasses for the centre of the tables
60 ribbons for the OOS
my wedding ring biggrin.gif
my tiara biggrin.gif
2 veils (different lengths) biggrin.gif
my hoop for under my gown
my gown biggrin.gif
my flower-girl dress biggrin.gif
ribbon for the invitations
My birth certificate (need to find Chad's)
75 Cake bags (50 guests)
30 RSVP cards (need 10 more)
ribbon for the boquets
little tissue packs I have made (30 down, about 10 more to do)
the stars we are skattering on the tables
My contract with the photgrapher
My contract with the church

Sorry for any typos, I have a dislocated shoulder nerve.

What a gorgeous idea, Im all warm and fuzzy! Grandfathers rock, especially yours, you lucky girl. The blanket box will be a wonderful reminder of your wedding, and an original keepsake.

That is simply gorgeous! Awww! You'll have to write it all down in a journal for it to be handed down with the box.
