My wedding shower

Sorry This is late ladies but like I said earlier my camera decided it didn't want me to have any photos so I had to wait for my sister to get me hers she took with her Iphone. So really none of the pictures turned out great but they are still pretty and convey the feel of the shower!
First off I would like to say a huge thank you to my sister! She did and amazing job on planning and preparing and creating for this shower. She always says she has no talent creatively and I think this shower proves the exact opposite. Shes amazing! And also a huge thank you to my aunt Dawn who had the shower at her house and helped host it with amy!

Here I am in my new party dress gifted to me for this special occasion by a sweet person! My sister got me a badge and wand for the day and It was just perfect!

Getting ready to open gifts with my mom and grandma. My mom made my rehearsal bouquet and my sister amy did all my writing for me.

The food and drink spread was amazing. My sister made a drink staition and a dessert table! Using bits and pieces that look similar to the wedding Idea I'm using, by incorporating mason jars and milk glass. All the signs she made from old frames and chalkboard paint. Itailian sodas are my favorite and she did a fabulous job with this!

The gorgeous dessert table. And ladies let me tell you the stuff she made to eat was to die for!!!!!!!! WHite cupcakes with chunks of strawberry in the batter, cream cheese frosting with chocolate drizzle and strawberry on top! Also we had cheesecake stuffed strawberries with graham cracker crumbs on top! Sinful I tell you!

Cute decorations!

One of the cute games we played was Guess the age. She had me pick out a bunch of random photos of me and she had them another cute window frame painted with chalkboard paint again. Let me tell you this was hard for everyone. My grandma only got one right. I was a very large baby and my sister was so small cause she was 2 months early. I had hair like a 1 year old when I was born. No one could do this game but it was to look at the old pictures and here the wild guess people had!

One of my only requests was to play toilet paper bride. I have never played this in my life. I was of course the bride and I picked my two friends mandi and wendy to make my dress. They rocked it and after all the brides walked the runway my grandma voted and I won! My mom was also a bride and My cousin Kristi rocked on making her dress also!

I actually had a tearful moment while opening gifts. My best friend Renee lives in LA and was unable to attend the shower. (although she was there in spirit) Yet she very secretively sent a gift to my sister for me. So it was all wrapped and had the most beautiful card on it. I'm so very lucky to have such a thoughtful amazing caring best friend and I'm proud of my sister for keeping that secret. It was such a sweet moment for me to open her gift.
There was maybe 30 people at my shower, a huge turn out. All my cousins were there except one. It was amazing. I felt so loved! So heres a huge thank you to everyone that came and for all your sweet and thoughtful gifts! It means so much to me and I will cherish the memories of that shower for ever!

(stay tuned next week for the bachlorette pics)

Love,
Val

    I'm so glad you had a good time. I definitely have wonderful memories from my bridal shower. There's something about having that celebration with the most important women in your life that's really powerful.
