My Family Picnic Shower w/Pics
Posted 21 September 2008 - 10:38 AM
Yesterday was our first and only wedding shower. Some of you may have read my shower anxiety post a week or so ago. I was a little nervous going into this adventure! FI & I are both not center of attention types so it we were just a little anxious about it . Plus, our families were meeting for the first time and we've been together almost 13 years! Crazy, I know! So we got to the park early to settle in and be there to greet our guests.
Here's me and FI arriving at the park. My cousin had leis for us to "lei each other" with
Here are some pictures of the park:
They went with a beach and picnic theme and put out a few decorations. My cousin was so proud of the his and hers dolphin balloon find!
The whole time i'm thinking, I've got to remember to take lots of pictures for BDW! It's easy to get overwhelmed and forget. There are a lot of pictures I wish I would have taken. If this is how a shower feels I can't imagine what a wedding will feel like! I highly recommend asking friends or family to snap some photos for you ahead of time. Most likely they will be doing it anyway.
We spent the day hanging out with about 50 or so family and friends, playing outdoor games like volleyball, had a yummy BBQ/picnic, opened presents, and served cake.
Here's our delicious cake with our logo courtesy of BDWs Amy! I love how the cake turned out and everyone thought the logo was great!!!
And a few more random pictures of FI & I opening gifts:
My two favorite gifts were a KitchenAid Mixer (in red) and a huge gas BBQ grill!!! I really couldn't believe we received these gifts! They weren't on our registry but for sure things we wanted! It was a big surprise and so generous!
Overall the shower went really well! We were both nervous right up until it started but that faded away quickly. And the wine and beer probably helped too . I was sick with a fever the entire time but didn't tell anyone because I didn't want to ruin what they had worked so hard to put together. I think I hid it well . Our families met for the first time and really seemed to enjoy each others company. It was also good to get them together before we all spend a week on a cruise ship in February! So many people worked their butts off to make it such a special day and we felt very loved to have something like this put together in our honor!
