Unique and creative wedding gifts — such as custom pillows — can be more far meaningful and lasting than traditional wedding gifts. At Reminkie, we don’t simply create memory bears. We also design custom pillows, custom blankets and throws, and keepsake quilts. In fact, we receive many requests for custom pillows as creative wedding gifts.
Shown in the photo to the right is one of our custom pillows made from a woman’s beautiful wedding dress. Here is the woman’s response to receiving the custom pillow — made from her very own wedding dress: “What an amazing keepsake of our wedding! I’m reminded of our special day every time I see this beautiful pillow on our bed. I love it, especially the button details.”
