A Bridal Shower

As most of you know, I’m getting married myself this year, and I have been totally 110% spoiled rotten this summer by all the lovely ladies in my life!! Not only did my 2 Maid of Honours (aka. my “co-moh’s”) plan me a stagette weekend that I couldn’t have planned better myself, they teamed up with some of my BEST friends in the Victoria wedding industry, and threw me a “better than I could have EVER imagined”, bridal shower!! Everything was absolutely gorgeous, and I was overwhelmed with all the gorgeous details, lovely treats, and beautiful smiles that surrounded me the whole day.  And even though she was strictly there as a guest, my good friend Jesse Holland managed to snap a few shots of the day! Thank you to EVERYONE who made this such an incredibly special day for me, and I only hope that I can do the same for all of you one day 🙂

So now down to the gorgeous details….Hosted at The White Peony Bridal Boutique, the prettiest space in all of Victoria, and owned by my good friend Trish, it was an afternoon of champagne and sweets!  Toque Catering teamed up with my Mom & friends to supply us with a ton of sweets, and a Mimosa Bar (my favourite!!) was put together by the girls.  A “Make Your Own Flower Bar” was set up by the fabulous Vanessa, of Verbena Floral Design (as there is almost nothing I love more in the world than beautiful blooms), and was a fun take home gift for all the attendee’s.  Recipe cards, that were included in the invitations, filled a recipe box that I am so excited to make my way through!!  Photo’s were strung throughout the space, showcasing some pretty embarrassing (but equally cute) photo’s of both Nick & I throughout our life time.  And hidden amongst some beautiful wedding dresses, was the very first dress that my Mom ever made me…it was Pink, Shiny, and all around Fabulous!! And a very special shout out to both Conscious Hair by Elena and Erin Bradley for dolling me up that morning, and making me look as good as I felt!
