We had our rehearsal dinner at Fossil Trace Golf Course in Golden, Colorado. It is a very nice facility, which we actually considered for the wedding itself. Here are some pics of the venue/course:

My bridal shower was held on Saturday, May 8th at the Bella Rosa Golf Course in Frederick, Colorado.
20 of my closest lady friends came & we had a wonderful time!
This game was a blast...the ladies had to make a wedding dress out of bubble gum, nerd candies & toothpicks. I had to pick the best one! It was a mess but everyone had a great time!! Here's a sample of the dresses:
And the winner is!! It is hard to tell what it really looked like but the
winning dress was 3D with nerd button detailing down the back and
she was holding a pink & green bouquet (my colors) and even had a
(massage oil, bath fizzies, candy & chapstick)
My shower was thrown by my twin sister/MOH Michelle & my BM Jamalea who works there. Here are the hostess gifts I made them.
Some of our guests will join us after the reception for a night of gambling & celebration at the Isle Of Capri Hotel & Casino in Blackhawk, Colorado. Hopefully we will win big for our honeymoon!!
Update: Unfortunately we did not win big, but we had a fun night anyway!!
BMs that couldn't quite hang LOL!
Our room has a hot tub & 2 flat screen tvs...but possibly tacky island decor LOL!
I bought 12 Par38 lights with 90W Spot Bulbs @ www.stagelightingusa.com. I will be using the dark pink gels to add a beautiful glow to our reception! My dad built bases for the lights so that they would be extremely stable & there won't be a fire risk! Here are some pictures of one of them in action:
The Base...thanks dad!!
