From Miss June:
The bridal showers were a blast. I had two bridal showers and one couples shower. My bridesmaids put together a shower that was tailored to my style to a “T,” and was based around all of the Ann Taintor sayings you see on all the mugs and pinterest icons. Pictures with fun captions on them. My maid of honor, Kelly, and the rest of the girls did a wonderful job. The guestbook sign-in was especially creative. Each person was to choice one of our engagement photos that were printed out, and add captions as to what Brad or I was saying. The pictures and captions were then glued into an old book with pages glued together and prepared, along with a note from the attendee.
Each of the bridemaids brought their own personal concoctions so everyone could find a beverage to enjoy. There were many delicious drinks and finger food for everyone to enjoy, and it was a great opportunity for old friends to catch up.
After the shower I gave each of them a gift for hosting such a shower for me. Each got a black photo book with a message from me written on the inside cover about our friendship and thanking them for being a part of such an important part of my life. The photo books and gift bags were decorated with a quick stick-on glitter initial for an added touch.
The other shower was just as fun and hosted by two of my Aunts. It was retro 50′s themed with old hats saved from my late Great Aunt and games geared towards old-fashioned housewife games and the like. It was such a fun weekend of showers! A couple of months later Brad and I attended a couples shower thrown my his side of the family at Mahoney State park. It was a great setting for people to spread out and enjoy catching up with family and friends while enjoying barbecue and celebrating our upcoming wedding!
