Brilliant, Charlotte! And isn't Maggie gorgeous in that super chic vintage top?!!


Absolutely gorgeous! What a lovely young woman.
All the wedding buzz is so exciting and how very special that Mary did the invite. I wish Maggie and James all the very best as they begin their life together.
Love to you, M.O.B!

I'm sure she will treasure that apron. What a fun idea. Great pics, she looks so beautiful. Hugs.


I want you to write a wedding planning idea book(before it's Annie's turn)!


LOVE the apron idea, may I "borrow" it? I'm so glad you're having grand mama of the bride fun!!!!!


yes, please do! so many ways to go with the idea ... birthday, Mothers Day, reunion ....!

Just a thought, but what if the apron got sent to each of her guests they wrote upon it, and then mailed it to the next person the last one sending it to Maggie?
Just a thought of course... but a treasure is a treasure... and of course it would be all the more treasured that it had to take a difficult journey to come back to her? The apron turned out cute as can be. I still have recipe cards with favorite recipes from friends from my bridal shower...
35 years later! (We laminated them, which helped preserve them all these years!)

Just wonderful, every bit!


love this theme...I am saving it away for when my little sis takes the plunge...she got engaged in December.

What an adorable idea! I just featued it on DIY Weddings at Craft Gossip. I love the idea of the guests signing the apron. What a sweet keepsake that would be! Congratulations to Maggie!
