When I got married we did a lot of DIY – making our own invitations, programs, and centerpieces. I wish I’d known how to crochet – I’d certainly have included yarn! Now I get to crochet for gifts for other people’s weddings! Did you crochet for your wedding? Share what you did in the comments – I’d love to read about it!
