Planning an Eco-Indie Wedding

Accessories: Browsing Lockets on Etsy

Posted on: December 22, 2008

Though it is far too early for me to need to think about accessories for my wedding day, one particular piece is going to be vital: a locket. Why you ask? Because my father is not going to be able to join us for my special day. Very unexpectedly, my dad passed away on March 22nd, 2006 at the age of 48 – just a few months before my now-fiance and I moved to San Francisco.

The idea of not being able to have him walk me down the aisle is devastating; it tears my heart into thousands of pieces. For a time, that even stopped me from wanting to get married, as well as have kids. But I know that is not what he would want me to do – he wants me to be happy; he always has. I was his little blond angel.

Now that I have the delight of receiving love, honor, and above all, respect from a wonderful man, my father would want me to take the next step and become that man’s wife. So that is what I am doing. To make the day even more meaningful, one of the only pieces of jewelry I plan on wearing is a locket with my dad’s picture in it.

The only problem? I don’t own a locket. Oops! So, we’ll just have to remedy that. Here are some gorgeous options that I found on Etsy.

[Birds of a Feather from BellezzaJewelry]

[Bouquet-Brass Floral Locket Necklace from heartworksbylori]

[Snow White from MiaBeads]

[Prelude to the sea. from SeaUnicorn]

[Daydream from MiaBeads]

[Tiny Heart Locket from BlueSunEmporium]

[pepperina. salt. from trystbykerry]

Of all these options, the “Prelude to the sea” and “Tiny Heart Locket” are my favorite. I usually choose silver as a default, but these two are dainty and adorable. I won’t end up going with anything too big because it just won’t look right on me (I’m tall and thin).
