A few weeks ago was my wedding shower! It wasn't a total "surprise" for me, as I basically helped pick out the date so I could make sure it fit in with my boards prep schedule and I would enjoy the day stress free (can I tell you how much I cannot wait until I can stop taking exams!!!). Anyways, so I knew about the date, but not really other details until my mom slipped up a few times. I was very excited to have it as my godparents house, as I knew if it was a nice day, we could be outside on the deck and enjoy the sunshine, allowing everyone to mix and mingle. The shower was absolutely amazing! It really was exactly what I would picture for me. Sangria on the deck, delicious foods, no pressure to sit at a certain table, allowing everyone to mix and mingle indoors and out. It was such a lovely day.
My mom and godmother really went over the top. My mom is so organized and a great party planner, and she did not hold back for this one. They picked out such great food and all the little details from the hydrangeas on the tables, to the "soon to be Mrs sign" were so cute (which is now hanging in our living room haha). My favorite thing was watching my mom run to wait by the door when guests were leaving so she could say good bye and give our her favors- she's amazing! My bridesmaids too really went over the top. They picked out a group gift for us, and were able to get us all of our dishes and flatware, which is amazing! They also came up with some great games and entertainment. They asked Kyle questions, and filmed his response prior to the shower. At the shower they asked me the same questions and I had to guess what Kyle would say, and then they played back his response. It was super fun and cute, and made me feel like Kyle was there as well. They also make me this amazing book of all our memories throughout the years, with empty pages to fill with the wedding memories. Love them all!
