Here is an unusual wedding gift that I created for my youngest sister's Trousseau Tea. I made her and her fiance wedding day aprons. When she first explained that she was going to have barbecue fair for her wedding I joked that I would make her and her fiance bibs. After some careful thought and consideration, I deemed bibs far to impractical-- when would they ever wear a bib again? So I changed it up and made them aprons. I thought that they might actually use aprons again, as they both like to cook. To my delight they actually used the aprons during their wedding reception because they opted to bar tend to greet their guests instead of having a receiving line. This was just one of the many unique things they did for their celebration.
For her apron I used a store bought white canvas apron and added my own embellishments. I used netting that I had left over from some packaging, ribbons and fake pearls. I made a net overlay skirt to give it a bridal dress feel.
For the groom's apron, again I used a store bought black apron and attached a baby boys white button down shirt and boys black suit jacket that I bought second hand. I cut down both articles of clothing to fit the bib front of the apron. I then had to make a black bow tie. I made this from lining from the suit jacket. The most time consuming aspect of the project was cutting out the lining and hiding my stitches.
I hope they have the opportunity to wear their aprons again and in doing so have wonderful memories of their amazing wedding.
