It's finally over and the pressure is gone. The wedding was held over the weekend and my gorgeous cousin totally rocked her shawl:

Amber also danced with The Youngest (notice my other Joe Cool cousin in the background):
The Youngest cracked me up during the wedding. He told me that he looked so good in his "fancy clothes" that everyone was going to think he was the Groomer. :)
During the ceremony he leaned over to me and said, "See the little girl behind you?" I said that I had seen her. Then he leaned in again and said "I look prettier than she does." It was all I could do not to laugh out loud. My little clothes horse likes his suits!
Here's the final pic of the shawl all laid out for you:
I'm so relieved this is over. The stress of making a shawl for someone's big day is HUGE. Before the bride opened her gift, I was in knots. What if she didn't like it? What if it didn't match the dress? What if the look was all wrong? Folks, I couldn't have matched up the color of the yarn better with the dress if I had seen them both together before hand. And the style of shawl was perfect with her dress too! Yay!
