- Wedding: November 2011
My Maid/Matron of Honor did a fantastic job planning my lingerie/going-away bachelorette (I am moving to the UK in two weeks, so my friends from the US threw me one ahead of time), and I have never been to such a fun, laid-back shower! They all pooled their money according to what they felt comfortable giving, and then they took me to Victoria’s Secret and presented me with a card bearing the dollar amount I could spend there! It was soooo much fun–we giggled and laughed and tried on outrageous bras and I got one really gorgeous/expensive piece instead of tons of undies I’d just take back anyway. Then they took me to Spencer’s gifts, where I got to get one toy…. (I chose the dice–you know, the kind that have a body part and an action?). Then, we went back to her house for a wine and cheese party on her back deck–tiki torches, good conversation, good music, and lots of laughter. There were only like 5 close friends there (I didn’t want anything big as I feel like lingerie is pretty personal), so it was really fun and intimate!
For those of you who are planning a shower, take a cue from my Maid/Matron of Honor. This was a great night!
