My bridal shower...

Recommended Posts

Yesterday was my Bridal Shower! Everything about it was a surprise except the date. My bridal party (of 7) and our moms made it so beautiful - they had it at a Cuban restaurant that is an old converted Victorian mansion and they took over the beautiful white Verandah's - it was gorgeous!


It was such an amazing party and a great day in general.

And before anyone freaks out - there are pictures coming!!!!! i will update the title of the thread once I get some pics from friends, family and Danielle!


Some highlights...


· One of my Bridesmaids hired our very own BDW Bride who happens to be a Pro-Photog Danielle Dbld78 to shoot Pro Pics at the Shower. It was so nice to meet Danielle in person and to have someone from BDW there!! Danielle is the sweetest person, she makes you feel so comfortable and is so un-obtrusive, she is a great photographer and an even nicer person. All of my family and friends were really impressed with her!!!! And it was so nice not to have to worry about snapping photos or if anyone else was capturing the memories…that was one of my favorite gifts!! (PICS TO COME)


· Family and Friends traveled from Germany, Canada, upstate NY, Maryland and some far regional distances so we had a really special group! To me that was priceless, all of these women there to support me and our marriage – I really felt blessed!


· We got a Canon PowerShot Camera!, all of our place settings, a ton of amazing and insanely generous gifts (it took almost an hour and a half just to open the gifts – it was so overwhelming!!!)


· My BM’s made me a very cool wishing well that was “Travel” themed with an beach bag in our wedding colors and a super cute over-sized ‘luggage tag’


· My mom made decorative boxes out of white chocolate that were on each table and held mixed nuts – they were so cool, most people didn’t realize that they were chocolate – then we told everyone and they started eating the lids – it was really funny.


· My FMIL gave me this really cute little story book she made about my FI growing up and my Mom did the same for my FI - they made me cry!


· FI, my brother and my Dad came at the end and FI wore the ‘bow hat’ and helped open the last couple gifts – that was super cute and I know Danielle got some good pics of him making fun of himself! HAHA


After, a lot of us went back to my MOH's house and ordered pizza and re-capped - it was GREAT! I feel so lucky to have so many great friends!!

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
