- Wedding: June 2013
My friends from church threw me an amazing surprise bridal shower!!! I was so sad and upset that my Maid/Matron of Honor wasn’t planning anything for my bachelorette and had already bailed on my first shower she was supposed to plan with my mom. I was feeling like no one cared or supported my marriage, like I really had no friends 🙁 I was supposed to go out to eat with two of my closer church friends and one of them was ‘running late’ when we opened the door they were all there yelling surprise! They had been stalking my pintrest and the place was decorated exactly how I would have done it if it were up to me. Mismatched china, milk glass with tons of flowers, rag garlands, pics of me and my Fiance – even a photo booth w/ props! My Fiance even helped them plan by telling them my fav foods and stealing pics off my phone! And I had no idea!
Everyone gave me such thoughtful cards and presents, even the girls I’m not super close with. I got a gorgeous recipe box they all filled with different recipes and they wrote date night ideas and scripture on popsicle sticks for us to use when we are bored. The pastors wife who hosted sent me home with a beautiful rag garland and this awesome sign she made with our initials carved into a tree. I was just so overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and support from these women, and it came at a time that I really needed that – I was pretty down about all of the wedding drama. I could tell how much time and effort they put into it – it was literally the shower of my dreams! – and it meant the absolute world to me 🙂
