Wedding flashback - part 5

Bridal Showers....they are fun. Especially when it's your bridal shower. One of my mom's best friends and her daughter (one of my friends) threw me a great shower. The shower was three months before the wedding because we had to have it on my trip back home. It was the last time I would be in town until just before the wedding. It was a theme shower called an "around the clock shower". Each person is sent an invite with a time of day to buy a gift for so if you get a morning hour you could get a coffee maker, and so on. It's really fun and makes for some fun gift opening (especially when you get to the late hours of the day)!
I was so excited for every gift. We literally had nothing and were starting a household from scratch.
This is one of the later hours. Thankfully it wasn't anything to embarrassing...my grandma was sitting next to me!

I have no idea what we're all laughing at but I know we had a good time!

My mom and me
Me with my plate of bows (I don't think I broke any)!
Tired of wedding flashbacks yet? Well don't go anywhere because tomorrow is the bachelorette party (if I can find any appropriate pictures to post)!

Hmmm, I've never even heard of an "around the clock" shower. That sounds like so much fun!!!

Jenn, I have to tell you that your wedding story sounds so familiar to mine that it is crazy! I too went back home to SC from Canada 3 months before the wedding for bridal showers! And you remember that we got our bridesmaids dresses from the same place, right?
If only I had such a fantastic story to tell about my wedding gown... my story is more of a disaster. But it all turned out fine in the end.
Our anniversary is this Sunday (July 12) so be looking out for a post on my blog with all the the details of our wedding story as well!

A bridal shower is such a sweet event when everyone works so hard to make the bride smile and rejoice! Great photos!

That looks like fun! My husband and I had the exact opposite problem of starting with nothing. We had 2 households worth of everything. It was a horrendous mish-mash, but we've been slowly and gradually replacing things ever since.
