Wedding Wednesday: Bridal Shower

On Sunday my mom went above and beyond (love you mom!) and threw me a bridal shower. I'm gonna confess right now that I had no idea that was even thing. I've never been to one before and I wasn't sure what to expect. Apparently it's just a good excuse for a bunch of ladies to get together, day drink, eat cake, and open wildly inappropriate gifts:

In other words, a great time ;) My mom had a diy bingo where everyone wrote down which specific gifts they thought I'd get which made present opening really interactive and fun. And speaking of all the gifts, I got so spoiled. Originally I was anti-gift registering because we've been living together for awhile and we already have most things we need. But then I walked around Target with one of those scanner things and suddenly I had one of everything in the Target housewares section on my list. Funny how that works out. We wound up with quite a few home items, some honeymoon luggage, and lingerie. So much lingerie. 

My aunt, a gift wrapping artist, turned all my bows into a bouquet for me to carry down the aisle during the rehearsal. This is yet another tradition I was completely in the dark about, but thankfully my lovely friends and relatives have my back with all this wedding stuff. 

A huge thanks to everyone for coming out and precelebrating our wedding. Can't believe we're only 24 days away from the big day!


  1. such an exciting time!!!!! I can't believe you haven't been to a bridal shower before :-)

  2. Well when there is cake and lingerie you just go with it! Was there a p*nis cake? It isn't inappropriate without a p*nis cake too. The valet guys really got a kick out of that at my friend's bach party. I don't think I've ever been to a bridal shower though.

  3. What a fun time!!! I always go the safe route with these kinds of parties and buy something cute, but classy. I'm too embarrassed to purchase anything else. ha.

  4. I have never heard of the bow-bouquet. How cute! Day drinking & innaproriate gifts describes bridal showers perfectly haha.

    I thought the same thing about the registry. I kept telling my Mom I didn't need it and I would have nothing to register for. Boy, was I wrong. Once you get that scanner in your hand it's like you can't stop.
