I’ve been looking forward to sharing these photos with you for the last week and I finally am getting time to do it! June 22nd was my bridal shower back in my hometown in Maryland hosted by mom and sister (along with several other ladies who helped!) It was such a special day for me and I had been looking forward to it for months! My mom and sister put a ton of planning into it and everything was just gorgeous!
Can we talk about how adorable these bridal shower invites are?! My mom found them on Amazon and then had her friend (with nice handwriting) write in the information.
Knowing my love of rose gold, the tables were all decked out in sparkles, sequins, rose gold plates and silverware and even mason jars! It was absolutely fabulous! These were also Amazon finds. GO mom!
I thought this was super cute! My mom had everyone fill out a “wishes and advice for the bride” and it was so special all the advice I got. Some things were funny, other things were sweet and sentimental. It’s definitely something I’ll treasure!
My mom and sister also had this adorable balloon arch on the wall by the food table (they made my dad inflate all the balloons, poor man). There was a delightful fruit parfait bar set up with berries, granola, crushed up Oreos and vanilla wafers. My mom also got a tray full of my favorite Chick-Fil-A chicken minis! Oh my goodness I love those things! My sister also made these super cute mini cupcakes and she dusted them with rose gold edible glitter. Last but not lease, my mom had a cake made with David and I’s picture on it. My sister took great delight in eating the piece with David’s face on it to which she sent him a picture of. So glad he has a sense of humor!
Since David and I’s families are so spread out, this shower was more of my friends and family than his. McKenna, my bridesmaid and friend of 15-some years, was there and it was so awesome to see her after 6 months. She and I have been close for years and refer to each other as “twin.” Haha! There’s an embarrassing backstory to that I won’t be sharing!
Of course the fun part of a bridal shower (at least for the bride) is opening gifts. Well, I didn’t expect this to happen but it did! My friend’s mom got me lingerie! That’s always a fun gift to open in front of your mom and sister. Everyone got a good laugh out of it and frankly, so did I! Just glad my poor dad wasn’t there, we both would have died of embarrassment lol!
I’m so thankful for everyone who came to celebrate with me and my family! My parent’s church let us use their fellowship hall to host the shower and I was blown away by how kind everyone was there! Sunday morning the pastor recognized and congratulated my parents and I on my engagement, which I thought was really nice. It was such a great weekend with my family and I can’t wait to get married in 4 MONTHS!!
