My beautiful maids of honor and my amazing (and also beautiful) mom threw me a bridal shower when I was home in Cali two weekends ago and it was perfect. Seriously, it was everything I could have hoped for and I want to thank you all from the bottom of my heart! I feel like as I’ve gotten older, most parties that are thrown for me are organized by yours truly. There is something very special about having the ones you love throw you a party and I really did feel showered with love! I promised in this post that I’d share photos once I got around to uploading them, so here they are!
As guests entered, they were given a beaded necklace and were told that they weren’t allowed to say three words…I’m pretty sure they were Wedding, Bride, and Groom (or something to that affect). I lost my necklace pretty early on. 😉 Also, Cara was a genius and bought thank you cards to have guests write their name and addresses on to save me time later.
For favors, Cara painted the bottoms of wine and champagne glasses with chalkboard paint. Guests were able to write their names on the glass and take it home. LOVED this idea and I may have to steal it. 😉
I was able to squeeze in a photo with my future sister-in-law, Brynn, and my future mother-in-law, Trish who both made long journeys to make it to my shower. I’m truly lucky to be marrying into an awesome family!
