My shower will be back at home at the end of May. As for the bachlorette party…probably not until the week before the wedding. All but one bridesmaid lives out of state and I’d want to go out with all of them. And I have just realized I should start finding some cute thing to wear!

I’m not having a bridal party so foregoing some of those traditions. Here’s what I’m doing instead:

Bridal Tea – Traditional Afternoon Tea at the Fairmont downtown hosted by me and as a gift to the important ladies in my life. No mention of a shower anywhere, and not going to do things like gifts and games. It’s more of a treat from me to the people I care about.

Ladies Night – I have rented 2 suites at our local Fairmont hotel. The night before the wedding I will be having my closest girl friends come stay with me. We will go out for dinner, and then spend the evening together just hanging out and gossiping. They will be helping me get ready in the morning and we will have some mimosas and breakfast trays. The only cost to them will be dinner when we go out.

@IUrebekah3RT:  That dress is HOT! I may have to um, steal your idea. 🙂

No shower for me. Everyone is already spending a lot of money to travel and we don’t really have family where we live so we’re just not doing it. Bachelorette is May18-19 weekend and I have no idea what they’re planning yet!

My MOH and aunt are throwing me a bridal shower on Saturday May 18th…I’d like to go out for drinks after so we prob will end up doing that!

June 8th is my bachelorette party…all the girls are local, so we are eating dinner and having a few cocktails at my parents house, than a limo is picking us up for a night out on the town…can’t wait!

UGH I am trying to narrow down dress options! I think I want to wear white to all these events

My shower is set for April 27th!

This is my shower dress:

 

As far as my Bachelorette Party. We are planning maybe 2-3 weeks before the wedding. Not sure of the details yet. Maybe I’ll wear a white sundress with nude wedges. Kinda like the one I wore for our e-session:

So far I know FSIL is throwing a shower for me in my fiance’s hometown in May for his side. I don’t think anyone is throwing one here where we live. I’ll probably just wear a cute dress, I’m sure it will be casual!

Plans for Bachelorette is some of us are going to the Kentucky Oaks Races (day before Derby). Its all cute dresses and big hats!! I’ve got to shop for that still. Then we will probably go out for drinks that night with those that had to work that day. I’ve kinda took the reins on planning it which I know to some isn’t right but 2 BM’s live in other towns/states and the others don’t really run in the same circles so I’m the common person between them all.

I just had my bridal shower a couple weeks ago (3 months before the wedding).  I rented my outfit from Rent the Runway, which I highly recommend!!!  I paid about $103 plus shipping.  Here’s the dress and necklace:

 

I haven’t made a final decision on my bachelorette outfit yet.  I know it’ll also be from RTR.  The party itself is a secret.  All I know is the weekend it’s happening (about 1.5 months before the wedding) and that I’m supposed to pack an overnight bag!  😀

One of my bridal showers and my bachelorette are the same weekend – April 23 & 24. That way my cousin, who is my bridesmaid, will be in town for both. I know there’s another shower, but not sure of the date yet. It’ll be pretty casual at a friends house.

My bridal shower is the last weekend in April, and the bach. party will either be the 2nd or 3rd weekend in April.

For the bridal shower I’m either wearing a dress from eshakti.com or a nice ivory sweather I have.  I’m not going to go too crazy for the bach party since it will be a girls night in at someone’s home, and I don’t want to go bar hopping.
