wedding // 6 reasons for bridal showers.

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.

6] it’s 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?

#LLinaBCGetsHitched.

so, I may have underestimated the amount of wedding planning I have to do.

[J] & I easily decided on a destination wedding. we wanted to be somewhere tropical + beautiful. and it seemed much more laid back to plan. [how can you be stressed on the beach with an umbrella cocktail?] but then came the return reception, which will practically be a full-blown wedding reception, a month after our destination wedding. all of my jumps for joy about not being concerned about music, centerpieces, cocktails, food, & dessert were in vain. but for good reason ..it gives our guests that are not able to travel a chance to celebrate with us, and vice versa. I’m both excited and overwhelmed.
