As we quickly approach the four-month mark, I thought I’d already gotten past the “Oh, gosh…this is actually happening!” stage of wedding planing. Well, this past weekend my bridesmaid Cat and MOH Schmo threw me the most amazing bridal shower, and the whole time I kept thinking, “This is really for me? Because I’m the bride? WHOA.”
Because I go to school so far from home, Schmo (who’s my college roommate) and Cat (who’ve I’ve known since freshman year) really wanted to throw me a bridal shower for my college friends who probably wouldn’t have been able to make it to Lancaster for my “real” shower at the end of the summer. When they asked me what kind of party I wanted, I told them to do whatever their little hearts desired, and I made sure they knew that I would be thrilled with whatever they came up with. I wasn’t expecting to have two bridal showers, so the fact that they were willing to plan an additional party made me feel like the luckiest bride-to-be.
I figured out pretty quickly that they were planning a lingerie shower when Schmo nonchalantly asked me what my bra and underwear sizes are. Well…she tried to be nonchalant. Bra and underwear sizes aren’t exactly everyday conversation in our room, so I was able to catch on to the “theme” of the day pretty fast. Cat and Schmo did an awesome job keeping all the details of the party a mystery until the day of, even when I tried to asked for hints. (Hey, a girl’s gotta know what to wear!) While I definitely had some ideas of what I thought they might be planning, I was totally blown away by the amount of work they put into everything. I’m pretty sure I said, “Oh my gosh, this is so cute! The cupcakes are cute! OOH, the drinks! These cookies—CUTE!” a hundred times during the course of a couple hours. I was truly amazed by all the little details and, of course, the photographer in me had to bust out my camera to take pictures of it all.
