My Bridal Shower

Recommended Posts

My sister, SIL and aunt hosted a bridal shower for me at my Mom and Dad's house in MD this past weekend. It was mostly my elderly relatives who came, but ti was really nice b/c so many of them I hadn't seen in years and they are as old as 91 so it's likely this could be one of our last 'girls' get-togethers for the family. And most of my "aunts" are actually my Dad's aunts ... that's why they are so much older. :-)

 

In any case, not too much in the way of exciting photos, but I know you love pics, so I thought I would share. :-)

 

I got lots of kitchen stuff (CorningWare, mixing bowls, large measuring bowls, palm tree cheese spreaders, beautiful cherry wood salad bowl and the matching wooden forks which matches our kitchen's cherry wood perfectly), $$ for the honeymoon from our registry, bath towels, gift cards from Macy's BB&B and Home Depot, matching "just married" flip flops, fondue set ... I know I'm leaving some things out but I can't think ... and a "Sex for Dummies" book from my uncle. lol

 

Oh -- and my favorite gift -- a BW photo from 1939 of my Great grandparents and their kids in front of their farmhouse. I'll have to take and post a pic of it. It's awesome!

 

I wish they had taken some pics of the decorations and favor bags. It was all a red and silver hearts theme -- since it was so close to Valentines Day. It was really cute. And my SIL made a heart-shaped cake that was gorgeous!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
