Hi,

 

I am doing something a little crazy, I am getting married on SUNDAY 6 October (it is a Spring long weekend here in Australia) and having my shower the DAY BEFORE.

 

The reason why is that:

– most of my friends will be travelling to my hometown from interstate and overseas to see me married

– I don’t want presents, it will be hosted at my mother’s house by my sister (MOH) and my Bridesmaid as an afternoon tea.  They will be asking the guests to bring a copy of their signature recipe or a poem or blessing to contribute to a recipe book they will make up for me as a bridal gift for me.

 

Many of my girfriends’ husbands are friends, so they will club together and take the kids to the park for the afternoon and then everyone is getting together for a families and friends Chinese banquet in the evening (similar to a US rehearsal dinner but much more casual).

Then we have the wedding the next day- ceremony in the afternoon- followed by evening dinner reception.

@starz88962:  

 

I love the dress, I think it depend on the style of shower/ R Dinner- but I think it is versatile enough for either.

Mine is tentatively set for the first weekend in August. My bridesmaids are planning it and they aren’t telling me anything! The only rule I gave them was: I’m not wearing a dress, so don’t make it super fancy. lol

I just found out that mine is June 28th, which is super early but there is a possibility that I will be in another state for August & September so early works best.  My Maid/Matron of Honor & my bridesmaids are planning it and they rented a private room at my favorite winery.  I have no idea what to wear.  I’m not a big dress person so I’m not sure yet.  I need to start looking!

@Tiffmiff I don’t think it’s weird at all to do a shower and bachelorette together. That’s what we’ve done for three of my friends. When everyone doesn’t live in the same town, it’s hard to get together twice right before the wedding.

My bridesmaids are planning the same for me. I live in Destin, so they are all coming here for Labor Day weekend and we’re renting a beach house. It’s also my 30th birthday, so it will be a shower/bachelorette/bday weekend…can’t wait!

My godmother is also throwing another shower for me at the end of July. This will be small, mostly family. Looking forward to both.

My shower is on July 28th. A little earlier than I expected, but my matron of honor just had a baby and wanted to do the shower while she was still on maternity leave. I’m close to my matron of honor’s mother and she will be hosting the shower at her beautiful home. I know it’s going to be a pink shower with a tea party theme and I found the perfect outfit inspiration from a blog. I even have McKenna Bleu’s Badgley Mischka shoes to wear to the wedding so I figured I’d break them in at my shower since no one will really see them under my ball gown on my wedding day anyway. I don’t think anyone will be surprised I’m wearing a tutu to my shower!

Ours is set for Sept. 1st. We have to travel back to cleveland, OH from NC and with our work schedules, we knew we’d both have off that monday for Labor day so that’s when we’ll drive back. I’ll probably send the invites our a little sooner since it will be a holiday weekend. We should about about 60 guests or so. Very excited! Now we just gotta register! 🙂

Hi ladies, 

My shower is Aug. 10, which is about 2 months before my big day. I’m so excited to finally start looking for a dress!!

I am actually having 3 showers.  One in August, September and October.  I have some ideas on what to wear.  The one in October will be the trickiest onE!

I finally found a dress for my bridal shower.  Yay!  Being a plus sized gal, it’s hard to find a dress that isn’t dowdy, cost a gazillion dollars, or doesn’t look like a moomoo.  My shower has a retro theme, so I tried to find something that had a slight vintage feel to it.  

I found this one on zulily.com.  Let’s hope it gets here before August 17th!

My sister just bought the invitations today for our couple’s shower on 8/24. My birthday is 8/22 so it’ll be so fun to see everyone for my birthday AND our shower!

I had a mild panic attack when I realized our wedding is only three months away…
