showers and dress shopping

Look what I received in my (digital) mailbox last week:

My very first bridal shower invitation! It might seem a bit early to have a shower considering our wedding is in May, but there's a good explanation. MOH Sam and bridesmaid Becca are going to be in town visiting (we were all roommates in college). Well, Sam is from Colorado and wasn't sure if she would be able to make it back east again prior to the wedding and asked if it would be okay to plan a little shower/brunch for me. It won't be very big - four out of my five bridesmaids (we'll miss you Ash!), a sorority sister who lives a few hours away and two local friends.

The 'maids will get in Friday night/Saturday morning, so I decided to take advantage of most of us being in the same place at the same time. We're going dress shopping!! I'm really looking forward to spending time with my girlfriends and getting ideas for their attire. Online images of perfect-looking models just aren't cutting it for me anymore. I'm also glad that we were able to set this up because I thought I would have to pick out bm dresses alone since we are all so spread out. And, honestly, that doesn't seem like much fun.


  1. Cute invite, and I hope the dress shopping goes well! I only got to go shopping in person with my sister, so I think it's great you'll be able to go as a group.

  2. What day is your wedding? I have only been following your blog for a few days but I am so excited for you.
