Finished sewing my mother-of-the bride dress for my daughter Claire's wedding. Will wear it with pearls and nude nylons and shoes. It's a deep maroon double-knit woven with black and silver threads. What do you think?
Got their wedding invitations addressed and mailed. They wisely included a stamp on the RSVP envelope. Most people don't. Immediately, they got excited RSVPs back.
Claire, 28, and Matt, 33, both loved the childhood book, "Goodnight Moon." They remember their parents reading it to them. "Again!" little Claire said. "Again!"
"I love you to the stars and back," her dad told Claire when she was growing up. "I love you as big as the sky!" I told her.
That's why they chose, "Love You to The Moon and Back." Their wedding invitation is sweet and touching.
Here's Claire having her wedding dress altered. It was two sizes too big. Claire chose the wedding dress we both loved the most. She had tears of joy.
Claire's father, Terry, hired a photographer from Seattle to take pictures at Claire's and Matt's wedding. In September, I will post photos of Claire and me in our dresses.
These are the pearls I'm going to wear. With all of Mom's diamond jewelry, I wanted the pearls instead. They are simple and elegant.
