- Wedding: June 2010
Since I live abroad I am not having the “typical” pre-wedding events that normally precede weddings in our family…BUT I am traveling back to the US in March and will have an absolutely wonderful weekend thanks to my sis and aunts!
My aunts are throwing a bridal luncheon for me on a Saturday afternoon with a cookbook/fave recipe theme! My Fiance and I love to cook and collect cookbooks so she is having everyone bring their favorite cookbooks + recipe as gifts (if they want). Since we do live abroad I can’t have the typical shower with things off our registry (yes, we have a registry…the gifts will sit in storage at my parents’ house until we move back ) this will be a great way to take things back to Sweden with me!!!
My sister and Future Sister-In-Law (my brother’s FI) are throwing my bachelorette/lingerie shower that evening. Since I am not into barhopping we are having a great sit-down dinner at a wine bar with several courses and flights of wine…then back to the hotel for champagne and dessert.
Then, luckily, my wonderful friends in Sweden are throwing another bachelorette party for me also (supposedly a typical Swedish bacheloretty party…eek!)
All of this together makes up for the fact that I am not getting to do the normal mother/daughter and family-type stuff before the wedding 🙂
Anyone else having somewhat unconventional pre-wedding celebrations!?!
