Lace and weddings go hand in hand......
When I was growing up in Crete, at a time when no one owned a car and people were able to sit outside their home on the street, all the women would come out in the afternoon after a day's work, and hang. They would stitch, or crochet and teach the younger girls to do the same. They would work on their daughters dowries. I created many cross-stitch and single stitch projects on painted needlepoint canvas those years. My sister was taught to crochet by a neighbor. She was really good at it and created many beautiful things for me like curtains and a blanket. Crochet lace is a lace I have known all my life. Missing those happy, relaxing, worry free days!!!
After I moved to the US and lived with my paternal grandmother, I saw that she knew how to crochet as well. She has made for me many doilies and an amazing crochet tablecloth that I even use today. Of course, as I was getting older, I was noticing other types of lace, machine made as people would say. These were more affordable and would be used for window treatments or decorating home furnishings.
We love using lace at ‘dahlia’. It’s elegant, romantic and just plain beautiful. We search for pretty lace everywhere we go and try to be very creative in how we use it. Wedding dresses have lace, why not our candles. There is no reason why you should not add some romance with lace to any style wedding!

On the third day there was a wedding in Cana of Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there. Now both Jesus and His desciples were invited to the wedding. And when they ran out of wine, the mother of Jesus said to Him, "They have no wine." Jesus said to her, "Woman, what does your concern have to do with Me? My hour has not yet come." His mother said to the servants, "Whatever He says to you, do it."
