When I got married five years ago, I thought it would be fun to carry a bouquet of flowers that I had knitted myself. Needless to say, that was before I had started knitting toys, or else who knows what kind of crazy bouquet I would have come up with!
Every once in a while I hear about people who have actually incorporated Mochimochi knits into weddings, which is just too cool, if you ask me. Tiny Bride & Tiny Groom from Teeny-Tiny Mochimochi are an option, of course, but it could be anything!
Tracey knitted up a flock of Tiny Perching Pigeons in wedding colors to adorn the trees of her friend’s outdoor wedding.
And Laura emailed me recently about a sweet box of Hearts that she made for her cute aficionado brother and his fiancée for their wedding.
(Both the Tiny Perching Pigeons and the Hearts are free patterns on my blog.)
I’m sure there are more Mochimochi wedding projects out there, and I’d love to see them! You can upload your pics of Mochimochi knits to the Mochimochi Friends Flickr group to share them on our gallery page, and it will automatically be entered in our next photo contest too!

Those are both really cute ideas. For my wedding I made wax roses out of a mold and used them in bowls as centerpieces. I think I might have been less crazy pants to knit, because I would have started earlier instead of the last minute dance I was doing at the end!
I’m getting married next April and plan on knitting the tiny bride and groom as a cake topper. I’m also knitting myself a shawl to wear, but now I’m intrigued by the idea of knitting flowers….
hey anna? have you ever been to wisconsin
