This is so pretty. I love the openness so it doesn't hide the dress. It's not hard to do, but then I have been crocheting for years. I may make a change. What if the basic shawl is done in white, cream or off white and the flowers done in your wedding color?

Here's another option for a wedding shawl although personally I find this one a bit short. But I like the rose trimmings on the edges which are the highlight of the shawl. Thanks for having the pattern on the same page making it easy for crocheters.

Are the motifs created seperately and then joined? If not could you please explain how to do it continually, or point me to a video tutorial for this patterm

Hello! The pattern indicates "Flower motifs are worked in joined rounds with right side facing at all times. Motifs are joined using a join-as-you-go technique into a long strip." Hope this helps! -Kathryn, Editor of AllFreeDIYWeddings

In the picture, the flowers appear to be joined at the top of the pedals. But the way I am reading the pattern, the first flower ends with a slip stitch in the first 4 chain space. Then the second flower begins with either with the 5 chain circle or the 7 chaos to start the pedal. Either way the center of the second motif is on the base between the last and first pedals. This does not look correct. Please help.
