@LivingInPink99:  My bridal shower is Sunday March 9th. Everything to deal with the shower from the candy, to the plates/silver wear/cups, to the table decor, and the wrapping paper on the gifts for my guests are my wedding colors hot pink, white, black, and silver. There’s not really any other theme. Nothing is a surprise I helped plan for it and bought a few things such as the invites, some of the plates and napkins, and some of the gifts for guests. Who knows maybe there is a surprise I don’t know about.

For my bachelorette party it’s not a surprise either. It’s on Saturday May 31. We are having a cook out at my house with about 30 of my friends and family. We’ll be playing games, listening/dancing to music, and just visiting. My matron of honor does have a few surprises for me I guess. 

I’m so excited. My bridal shower is in less than 3 weeks. My wedding is in less than 5 montha! This last year has just flown by!

I cant believe we are talking about this stuff finally! It is starting to feel so real and so close!!

There will be 3 different showers, one from my bridsmaids and family with my sides family friends.. so it will be a biggie. That one is set for April 12. Then each of my FIs family sides are going to have one and I dont know anything about when they are. I am not/will not be involved with planning for any of them!

My bachelorette is going t be on May 23-25 and I know nothing other than that! My MOH is organizing it all and I wont know anything until we get there! She is even helping me pack the day of!

SO exciting!

I already had my bachelorette (Dec 28th), because it was the only time before the wedding that one of my bridesmaids could come home (she lives across the country). We went bowling and then had a girls night. It was so much fun and my girls totally dressed me up. It was awesome!

My shower will be on May 3rd and I just got my shower outfit today! The theme and activities will be a surprise, but I know the date and who is invited and stuff. I wouldn’t want the entire thing to be a surprise aha.

Here’s my shower outfit!

 

I definitely have to pick up a new self-tanner before the shower (I’m so pale from the winter!)  aha. It’s so exciting that we’re close enough to start thinking about this stuff! (:

@LivingInPink99:  Im a little scared to be honest! My matron of honor is all in for a night out on the town going crazy type of thing, and thats not me!

My maid of honor is on my side and knows that I dont want to go crazy.

So hopefully they find even ground.

Bridal shower will be a surprise at work. I’m quite apprehensive about being the centre of attention at work. Embarassed (Coworkers have asked and I evade. “Shower?”)

FI’s SIL told me that she will be hosting a bridal shower for me. She asked who I’d like to invite. So, it will be a nice family kid-friendly shower — some time in June as I’m pretty occupied with pursuing an accounting designation.

This is the dress I’m planning to wear to the organized shower; the straps need to be altered:

 

My MOH is wanting to plan a “hen’s night”; I hope she will like my idea of having it at a roller-skating disco rink! (There are 25 cents arcade games from the 1980s)
She’s not arriving Canada until after mid-June. So, it should be fun!

I’m looking forward to my mom meeting her in-laws at the shower more than anything. Whether or not the parties are themed are really secondary. If they were 1950s-themed as well (like the wedding), I’d be really amazed!

My first shower is March 16th – that one’s being thrown by my mom and aunt and everyone on both sides is invited. Then FI’s stepmother is planning one for April 27th for just her family. I have no idea what’s going on for my bachelorette. My sister/MOH is handling that one. I’m so excited!! This year has just flown by and now everything’s so close!!!

My first shower is March 22 with invites going out this weekend.  That one is in my hometown.  The second one is the same weekend as my bachelorette party.  We are doing the bachelorette on May 17th and the bridal shower on the 18th.  The second shower will be all of his family and my friends from where we live now.
