- Wedding: April 2013
… and it was so awesome! The weekend started out a little rocky, with my mom and sister (MOH) both coming down with the stomach flu on Friday! I was so upset, we really didn’t think either of them were going to be able to make it, I would of been crushed if they had to miss it. But by Sunday they pulled it together & were feeling good enough to come!
We had it at a private country club, it was very nice! We had a buffet lunch that consisted of chicken & tuna salad croissant sandwiches, a green salad, pasta salad and fruit salad. We also had Mimosas being passed the whole time 🙂 I may or may not have had 5 glasses of champagne — didn’t get me drunk, all it did was give me a headache.
I got a lot of nice gifts!! Only a few duplicates. My FI joined us with about an hour to go, everyone cheered when he walked in, made him feel so important! He said he was overwhelmed with all the ladies (we had 33) but he said he had a good time!
I’m sad it’s over, but that means we move onto the next wedding event, my bachelortette party! 🙂
The dessert table.. we brought in the cupcakes, my FMIL made the cherry cheesecake bites & my uncle baked his famous heath & chocolate chip cookies. I made the cupcake stands, the plate the cheesecakes are on & the chalkboard.
A honeymoon basket my 2 best friends made for me, it had so many awesome things in it.. sunglasses, a bathing suit/bathing suit coverup, a maxi dress, jewelry, flip flops, beach towels etc
My FI took the “for every ribbon you break is a kid you’re having” tradition very seriously, he was very careful! (we broke 4)
A gift from my FMIL, our favorite team & my new last name.. I love how my FI is looking so lovingly at me (he’s probably actually looking lovingly at the jersey). This was one of my favorite gifts.
My Aunt got him a poncho when she went on a cruise to Mexico, he was so excited about it!
My lovely sister/MOH.. you’d never know the day before she was puking her guts out. And check out the bow bouquet my best friend made, she did a great job!
Me and the Mr.
My lovely maids.. minus one who couldn’t make it.. we did not purposely line up so all the bare legs & heels were on one side & the pants were on the other lol How weird it ended up like that!
Overall it was a fantastic day & shower.. we have all the gifts in our spare room & I’m slowy picking at them & putting them away, it’s going to take awhile!
