    Put your thinking hat on! My dress came with a shawl that has the same detailed lace and beading and I want to figure out some way to use it. Any ideas? I have seen people take the fabric where they got their dress altered and wrapped it around the bouquet but the shawl is really long. I also thought maybe I could use it as table runner

      You could totally do a table runner... but beware the spilt wine and cake. Maybe do it on the guest book table

        I was also going to suggest using it as a table runner for a smaller table - guest book table, escort card table or cake table.. The cake table is my fave idea but it might get stained if you guys decide to do a messy cutting of the cake.. LOL

          If you dont mind taking it apart you can turn it into a ring bearer pillow. Or somehow add it to a flower girl dress.

              If I had a ringbearer I would totally do that!! That would be so pretty. But we don't have a ringbearer or flower girl.
