My bridesmaids/mother all live far away from each other, so planning was a bit tricky. My first shower is May 19, hosted by my Future Mother-In-Law and Future Sister-In-Law, while my mother is visiting. The second is April 10, hosted by my best friend, which my sister and mother will also be able to attend. The second shower is actually a couples shower, because most of my parents’ friends haven’t met Fiance, so that will be their opportunity.
I’m actually a little nervous about having my own shower with all of FI’s relatives – I feel like it’ll be awkward. But I’m also excited.

i also hate being the center of attention…it’s gonna be awful! lol
my wedding is May 28th and the shower is April 17th. the moms are throwing it… but everyone is helping out with the planning. there is not real theme(i hate the idea of spending money on decorations/centerpieces for the shower) the guests are getting a ‘cupcake in a jar’ for the favor and i’ll have 200 mini-cupcakes instead of a cake(i love cupcakes!!!!!). only one game, the toilet paper wedding dress and that’s it.

My mother adn BM’s are throwing my shower…which they want to surprise me. However, I just so happened to visit my aunt 2 days ago and she didnt realize she left my shower invitation open on the dinning room table. I couldnt help but see my name big as day! I feel bad that I know, but I’ll act surprised.
Shower 3/27— I do know that they asked me what I wanted/liked… and I told them I love the colors in the peacock feathers…and since I didnt do the wedding in a peacock theme it would be fun to have it incorporated in the shower
Bach party– I dont know … they wanted to surprise me with that too. I have NO idea what they are planning for this.
I’m excited for it all.

My bridal shower is next Sunday and I am so excited. It is supposed to be a surprise (but I figured it out). Should I not wear a nice dress and maybe wear jeans and a nice shirt and pretend to be surprised?

I attended my first bridal shower this weekend! Although a tad overwhelming, it was the first time I had the opportunity to see everyone since my redeployment and I really loved seeing everyone.
My DC Maid/Matron of Honor and BMs did an amazing job putting this together! My Boston shower is this Sunday and I can’t wait!
Apologies in advance for the huge pictures!
Tea Party Shower-Table
Favors: The guests submitted their favorite recipe and my NY Bridesmaid or Best Man did an amazing job of putting these together!
Me Opening Gifts: A bit uncomfortable, opening gifts infront of 25 women, but my BMs kept it light hearted with games in between.
