I have a beautiful pattern that is actually a baby blanket which I am adapting as a wedding afghan for my daughter and her husband to be. I am crocheting it as it is an alternating open and closed filet squares pattern with hearts and initials. Plus I am planning to use ribbon through the open spaces around the border.
Bamboo yarn has been suggested to me though I have read about its properties of stretching. I'd like to use a nice yarn, soft that will wear well without pilling.
