My mom threw me a surprise shower (w/pics)!

Recommended Posts

So my mom, dad, aunt, a family friend and cousin decided to throw us a small surprise shower last Saturday!!! Although I figured something was going on because they had been acting so suspiciously lately :), I never thought they would have done this – it was sooo nice! To refresh your memories, we are having a very small DW with only 6 guests (parents and one aunt from each side, we didnâ€t invite anyone else to keep it small and to not offend anyone if we started to invite more family or friends, then have to cut), b/c we werenâ€t feeling the big fat 300+ guest mexican wedding here (but we are having an informal AHR a few months after we get back). From the start my mom wanted to throw me a shower, but I told her since we did not invite the rest of our family and friends, it would be bad etiquette to do so. I could tell my mom was kinda heartbroken, and I felt bad telling her that (believe me, it made me doubt if we were doing the right thing with having a small DW!), but she understood. Well, my work threw me a shower, then some of my girlfriends are having a bachelorette for me, which etiquette-wise was ok, but I knew my mom felt like she was missing out. Well, she ended up telling me that she just couldnâ€t hold back any longer, and since a few close family members wanted to do something for me no matter whether they were invited to the wedding or not, my mom decided to do this at the last minute and invite just a few close people for a luncheon in their backyard. All my mom told me was to come with my FI and in-laws so they could take us “out to eatâ€. :) When we get there, my mom told us she wanted to show us something in the backyard, then lo and behold was our shower! They decorated everything sooo nicely, we were really touched! We didnâ€t take as many photos as my family (Iâ€m still waiting to get copies of these), but here are some that I wanted to share…

How sweet! I'm glad your mom decided to go against your wishes and throw you a shower. Sometimes we get caught up in what others will think and only focus on their negative reaction. We forget that there are those who truly want to wish us the best! Congrats!

    • 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.
