Aww, I’m glad to hear you had a good shower (and I’m almost positive you look LOVELY in the pictures. We’re our own worst critics). I had so much anxiety about mine and originally didn’t want one, but I’m glad I caved because my mom and sister threw me a wonderful shower last April.

I think the only thing I would have done differently if I had a say in the planning was to make it a little longer, or contacted all my friends I don’t get to see often for an "after party" of sorts. The shower was three hours with about 25-30 people, so it was hard to see everyone and catch up. Plus, on top of eating and opening presents, it felt like it only lasted a few minutes. But really, it was one of the most amazing days ever.

awe yay!  It sounds like everything was WONDERFUL!  And first and foremost – Im sure you look LOVELY in your photos!   Mine was this past weekend as well!  It was on Saturday, and what made it really special for me was that all 6 of my bridesmaids were able to make it.  They are scattered all over the east coast and one in Wisconsin (shes temporarily there doing an off-Broadway show).  MY FH had silly answers to a lot of my questions as well, Im with ya there sister!  Another favorite was having each table pick a bride and make a wedding gown for her in 10 minutes using 4 rolls of Toilet Paper and anything on top of the table.  I was the judge.  Some of my ladies were darn creative!!

 No complaints about mine really.  A couple of my moms neighboirs were Debbie Downers, but I ignored that  They dont like that our 2 dogs are the ring bearers and made snarky comments the whole time.

Sounds like it was great! I bet you didn’t look half as bad in your pics as you think, and if you really hate them… that’s what Photoshop is for!! 🙂

You know what you do with all that lingerie?!?!?! you WEAR it!!! ha!

I got some more risque lingerie for bachelorette gifts, but i found that i LIVED in those silk and soft girly little nighties on the entire honeymoon. They just feel so much sexier and comfier, so make sure you bring a bunch on your trip. Now that i’m home, it’s back to the shorts and tanks though =]

Oh, and your photographer will know the correct angle to shoot you from so you don’t get that chin. I always get that in regular photos too and am always surprised how much more slender i look in my engagement pictures. your makeup artist will do your face to reflect light better, too!
