I'd never heard of such a thing before, but she got lots of great things - some might say, she received a Plentiful Bounty! Some of the things she received were: ornaments, dishware, aprons, towels, pillows, cookbooks, frames, a wreath and more! And then next year, their first Christmas as a married couple will be so nice, because she'll have to buy very little in order to make her house festive! I mean - look at this table of all her goodies!
The shower was held in a beautiful, old historic home, Fendall Hall, and it was still decorated with lots of beautiful Christmas decorations. She got lots of seriously good presents, and had so much fun! Now she says the wedding seems closer and more real than before, and she really feels like an actual bride now! :) Time seems to be speeding up and there are really only four and a half more months until the wedding! Whoa. And it seems like there's still so much that needs to be done. For one thing, I need to plan a shower to throw her myself, so I better get on that!
Here's a few
|Meg's family. From L to R: Mama, Megan, Grandmommie, me, Aunt Suzanne.|
|Bo's Family. From L to R: Meme (maternal g-ma), Linda (Bo's mama), Megan, DeeDee (paternal g-ma).|
|Bo came at the end to say Thank You to people, and of course do the heavy lifting to load it all in the car :)|
The shower itself was of course very nice. And we also just had a great time in the car together, telling stories and laughing and driving through the back roads of Georgia and Alabama! Megan enjoyed being the center of attention (once she was able to settle her nerves a little bit), and she was so thankful and grateful for a beautiful shower!
Thanks to Meme and DeeDee and all the work they did for Meg's very first wedding shower! Looking forward to a few more, and lots more fun wedding stuff for her! Love you Seester!!
P.S. - Not sure what I want to do for the shower I throw for her? Have y'all ever done anything like this before? Should it be general or themed? Or do you have any tips or suggestions for me? I'm excited to do this, but I've never done it, and not quite sure where to start!
