Hello, loves! Oh my goodness, my bridal shower this Saturday was absolutely amazing. Simply amazing. I had no idea what the decor theme was and I had never been to the venue, so I was totally surprised when I arrived.
The luncheon took place outside on the club’s balcony overlooking the golf course, and the table decorations were so classy. The weather was absolutely beautiful, and I’m convinced it could not have been more perfect June afternoon.
My mom’s best friend and her husband took care of the decorations themselves – down to the flower arrangements and the handmade place settings. I was so impressed!
The food was amazing! A mixed salad, gourmet sandwiches, fruit, broccoli and cheddar soup – and of course, cake!
Which I happily devoured.
I was having a ball – I was so happy to be around so many women that I love and adore. All but one bridesmaid and several of my good friends from college friends traveled from near and far to be with my on such a special day!
The only thing that had me sweating on the way to the shower was the fact that the bride always opens presents in front of everyone. When I first got up there, I was shaking in my boots.
Being the center of attention makes me a little nervous, and I’m finding out that that’s not an option for a bride to be Thank goodness Whitney, Lindsay and Cory (who showed up just in time) sat with me, taking notes and saving ribbon for the rehearsal bouquet – and before I knew it, my nerves had disappeared!
I can’t believe how much loot Cory and I walked away with that day. We feel so blessed to have such generous family and friends, that’s for sure!
Speaking of generous – Grandma got a little generous herself with the table M&Ms and started to stuff them into her candle party favor. I think I know who I inherited my sweet tooth from…
Overall, it was such an amazing day! My heart is full and I can’t believe that the wedding is so close. It’s wonderfully exciting
