September 15, 2014 in wedding.
I wasn’t sold on the idea of bridal showers. I understood the purpose. but was never much for the games. or sitting in front of the crowd opening gifts for hours. after being a bride + having two thrown for me, I have a completely different perspective.
6 reasons you need to have a bridal shower.
1] you feel an overwhelming amount of love // both from the people who spent the time + money to plan your shower and those who took the time to be there with you.
2] all of your favorite people are in one place // you just want to take a time-out for a gigantic group hug. but don’t. or do, it’s up to you.
3] it’s a part of the wedding you just get to show up & enjoy // you don’t have to send out the invites, or stress about the planning + execution. you just arrive. it’s amazing!
4] you get to see your new last name up in lights // I don’t know about you, but I tend to get so caught up in the itty bitty details of the wedding, that sometimes I forget after all of this is said + done, I will be mrs. [J]. I love seeing it.
5] scrumptious food + cocktails // no explanation needed.
often times the last hoorah before the wedding // as we hugged our friends + family goodbye at our last shower, we said “see you at the wedding”. we knew after that, we were ARE in the homestretch.
did I mention the overwhelming amount of love?
now it’s only ..
27 days til “I do”.
we are in full-blown crunch time now. this is when a procrastinator thrives.
happy monday all.
