One of the best things about being engaged has been all the opportunities to celebrate with family and friends. My BFFs hosted my bridal shower over Memorial Day Weekend, and I had such a nice time laughing and catching up and celebrating with friends from high school and college, women from church who’ve known me FOREVER, and of course my family and family-to-be!
The second-best thing about getting married is that you get to wear white to EVERYTHING. For my bridal shower, I rented a white Milly dress from Rent the Runway. I thought about buying something, but I couldn’t find anything I liked that was in my budget. I did buy my bachelorette party dress though (I got it (and another dress, too) at Bebe!)
Oh, and the third-best thing about getting married is getting panties. Because who doesn’t look forward to THAT part? There’s a solid chance I own all of the panties at Victoria’s Secret =)
My bridal shower was fun and such a sweet outpouring of love from friends and family and people who are rooting for this marriage (and have been waiting for this engagement for a long time!) I’m so happy that my dear friend Aisha of Love Daley Photography was there to capture all the special moments from that lovely day. She is an AMAZINGLY talented photographer in South Florida and takes such creative yet elegant shots. It’s fun to look at her work now and say, “Hey, I knew her when…” Definitely check her out if you’re looking for a FL-based photographer.
It seems like we’re having a “wedding week” of sorts on the blog! But wedding planning is the reason why I’ve away for most of this month, so it’s only fair to share what’s been keeping me from spending time from all of you. So let’s keep this party going: next up, our engagement photos!
