Also, don’t wear something so low cut that you flash people when you bend over to pick up/put down something.  I suggest a dress and not a skirt or pants… that way, you don’t have to worry about them sliding down when you are moving around.

I would wear a dress but I’m a dress girl I wear lots of dresses. If it isn’t you I don’t think you HAVE to. Have fun! That’s so exciting!

@TogetherThroughLife:  make sure to inroduce your wedding party/the moms to everyone and thank whoever planned the party. if you have time i would try to stop and get something small for whoever planned the shower…

 

just smile and have fun!

Have a Bridesmaid or Best Man or your mother or someone write down what each gift is and who it is from so you can keep track of everything. Five showers means lots of thank you notes! And write them ASAP so you don’t fall behind!

CONGRATS! Watch out for the punch. I was at one where the bride’s mom wound up wasted at like 2 in the afternoon!

And either a below-the-knee dress, or one full enough that you can push some of the skirt between your legs so you don’t flash anyone!

@TogetherThroughLife:  Wear a longer skirt to protect your parts if you bend over/sit down, or just wear nice pants and a top. Be gracious and thank each person that brought a gift, whether its a coffee maker or simply a card. Make sure you (or someone you trust) writes down each gift received, and who it’s from so you can send the thank you’s within 2 weeks. Have fun!! πŸ™‚
