There is a lot of debate about the groom seeing the bride before the wedding day. Some couples really like the tradition of the first look being as the bride comes down the aisle. But recently, a lot of couples have been opting to see each other before the wedding and have been coming up with some really unique and special moments. I’m pretty sure this hanging quilt is one of the cutest reveal ideas ever! It is so fun and personal and makes for an adorable photo op!

Also, the results for the Williams-Sonoma $150 gift card giveaway!

    Super cute idea! You can also personalize it by using Grandma's handmade quilt!

    Very cute. Were they watching "It Happened One Night", perhaps? : )

    Thanks for the comments. I (the groom) used a hollow curtain rod that had rubber end caps and jute string for the frame. The quilt was made by my wife's late, great aunt and her mother helped us sew a sleeve on the back of the quilt. Then the jute was thrown over a limb and the tassel was attached to finish it off. Cost about $5 all together.
