My bridal shower was more than I ever could've hoped for! My mom and sister went all out! They planned the whole thing and didn't tell me any details except for the date (so I could pick out an outfit of course!) It was at a yacht club and was a beachy theme. My mom made the cake, which was so beautiful! She even made the little chocolate shells on it!
I am so overwhelmed by the generosity and love surrounding the day! Out of 200 pics, here are a few :)
This was hilareous... my grandma knitted me a Wedding Afghan which was so touching. So I was SHOCKED when the next gift I got from her was lingerie! My expression here says it all!
My two sisters and cousin, who are bridesmaids. And my beautiful mama!
Crowning me! lol
And at the end of the shower, my honey came to pick me up and load up the truck! He even dressed up for a little photo-op! How cute is he!
This little project is going to be a real labor of love. I've always enjoyed flipping through old photos and learning about my family history. So I thought it would be really cool to frame old wedding photos of our parents, grandparents, great-grandparents (basically as far back as we can go) and display them at our reception. Here's a few I have scanned in so far. I just need to print them and find some antique-y looking gold frames.

My maternal great-grandparents (taken sometime in the 1920's):
My paternal grandparents (taken in 1955, and still happily married):
