After cake tasting, I went back to my sister’s to change into my dress and get ready. I was stuffed with cake, but I knew I had a whole day of eating ahead of me!
After writing this post, I felt like I was about to give up! But, I ended up going out on my lunch break the very next day and eventually found this dress at Filene’s Basement. I loved it and it was exactly in my price range of $50! Yay!
So, just to be a little more vain, here are some more pictures of my “perfect” bridal shower dress!
And I wore these shoes….which I borrowed from my sister Kerri. She has a ton of shoes and I can always rely on her to find the perfect pair 😀
The shower was held at Derek’s parents house on July 23rd (last weekend). There was some pretty amazing food at the shower. First up, homemade funfetti cupcakes! They were so good, I love funfetti and these were even better since they were homemade!
One of my good friends and bridesmaid showed up with these delicious homemade donuts! They tasted and looked extremely professional. She made glazed and jelly filled! Gosh, they were amazing and they got eaten up quickly! I made sure to grab a couple for Derek because I knew he would be bummed if he missed out on them. Laura, I need this recipe, Derek is demanding I make these!
We did have some ‘healthy’ foods, although technically these were made to be dipped in the chocolate fountain. There was also Sangria and Margaritas that I definitely had my fair share of.
My bridal party! Everyone, except my sister Gina could make it! I was pretty bummed out that she couldn’t make it, I was really hoping to finally have my bridal party all together for once before the actual wedding. I love these women! I really am going to have a beautiful wedding party.
The wedding shower was put on by my maid of honor and best friend/sister, Kerri, Marissa, who is Derek’s little sister, and Derek’s mom Karen. I just want to thank you guys sooooo much! The shower was wonderful and truly special and memorable. I couldn’t ask for a more wonderful family.
