I'm not sure which forum to post this in but I thought perhaps this was the most appropriate one;
A couple of weeks ago, my bridesmaids and my mom surprised me with an oh-so-cute bridal shower a couple weeks ago!! I was blown away by all the details and work they put in. My fiance was in on it and can you believe he didn't even give out ONE CLUE?! i was in shock (he sucks at keeping surprises lol).
I wanted to put it out there because I loved everything about it and I had such a great time! It took place at my bridesmaid's back yard and it was a perfect summer day. She had invited me to her mom's "birthday party" and she cleverly told me the dress code was "garden chic"...she said a cute summer dress...So that's what I went with. Here are some pics of that day
cupcakes and candy bar....and the carved watermelon my bridesmaid made
my cake!!! it was so cute! and tasted DELISSHHHH!
my table where i sat with my mom/mominlaw/bridesmaids...every table had a cute tea -set as pictured here:
this is me cutting my beautiful cake they had picture frames with love quotes and pictures of my Fiance and I on all the tables.....and of course the tea sets and vases with flowers....
my family playin the "toilet paper wedding dress" game.
my bridesmaids gave everyone who attended (all ladies) sun hats like in that last picture. they wrote inside the hat "Jenn's Bridal Shower - August 11, 2013 as a take home gift....they also had prizes for winners...and they played various games....ate some good food. Oh and my bff (who is a photographer) had a mini-photoshoot with everyone....we had everyone take a pic with me individually so that I could have as reminders It was all so sweet and so well-planned....
My wedding is not until November....I definitely didn't plan on getting a bridal shower so early on...but because of the unpredictable weather in Canada, it was a great time to throw this party....I was and am super grateful !!! I can't stop gushing about how cute it was
