It’s almost shower time. The countdown is on and excitement is in full-force.
I’ve really only been to a handful of showers (thanks to the back-to-back-to-back family weddings) and was lucky enough to have a shared, family-only, baby/wedding shower with my preggo cousin back at the beginning of April.
This month, I am honored with two showers. The first – my silver shower – will include Seattle friends and family. This group of women has been a huge part of my to-be family’s life and I am so excited share this experience, along with my adult, almost-a-wife world, with my sister and mother.
My golden shower is set for Yakima with the ladies I’ve grown up with. Some have been around since before I was born and others came into my life in my teen years. I can’t wait for all the women I love + know the best, sprinkled with a few new Seattle friends, to all be in one place. I know this one will hold a ton of memories, laughs and cheers – can’t wait to share these amazing women with my Seattle group.
Anyway, showers are fun. Full of food, yummy sips, pretty presents and cheesy games (bring on the cheese!). It’s amazing (and totally fun/embarrassing at times) what you can learn about a bride, or even what a bride can learn about her friends.
Both parties – Seattle + Yakima – have done such a fantastic job getting a feel for what I want, what I like and what I expect. They want to know my food preferences. Theme ideas. If I like frilly drinks (and of course I do). It gets me excited to think about it. I know it’s going to be amazing. And the best part? We get to be totally girlie for a night.
I know brides don’t plan their own showers, but it’s definitely something they need to think about, so I took the liberty of gathering a few pieces of inspiration, just to get you excited. In case you weren’t already :).
