What a weekend! My sister (who is also my maid of honor) and my mom have been working for months to plan this special day for me and it was wonderful to see all of their hard work and planning come to life! They planned my bridal shower at the Great Dane Pub and Brewing Co. located in Madison on Friday evening since several people would be traveling from out of town and the next day was my bachelorette party.
The details were absolutely perfect from the heart-shaped K+S cookies, to the gorgeous hydrangeas placed throughout the room. The cupcake dress not only acted as dessert, but as a nice decoration too!
It was so nice to catch up with everyone, and hours seemed to pass by as if they were minutes. A part of the night was dedicated to playing some bridal games as well as opening presents.I received some seriously amazing gifts and everyone was so unbelievably thoughtful and kind to bring something for Scott and I before our wedding.
One of my favorite gifts I received was from one of my best friends (and bridesmaid!) Ashley. We go way back to the days of gel pens and beanie babies, and I am so happy she can be a part of my big day!
Her gift was so thoughtful that it almost had me tearing up by the end. The gift included a wicker basket tied with yellow and grey (our wedding colors) ribbon. The basket contained six different wine bottles with a personal note for each one.
The notes read:
Wedding Night: The night you have dreamed of is finally here, the future surrounding you with hope and yet fear. You have finally married your perfect soul mate, sip this wine and toast to this date. This wine is meant for you to share, enjoy each other, the perfect pair.
Your Honeymoon: Whether in the mountains or at the beach, be sure to keep this wine in reach. Take time to have fun, it’s your honeymoon. Make sure to take pictures to remember the fun!
1st Wedding Anniversary: Been married a year, where did the time go? No longer newlyweds, now you’re pro’s. Now toast to this 1st date, it’s surely not the last–as you build your future don’t ever forget the past.
First Dinner Party: Open your home to entertain and eat, catch up with old friends and new ones you meet. When the night is over, open this bottle of wine, but don’t sit down yet-it’s clean up time!
Your First Baby: News that a baby will soon share your life, will make you a mother, not only a wife. You’ll see it through good times and sometimes through bad, you the loving mother and him the dearest dad. So celebrate and enjoy this time by drinking this non-alcoholic wine.
1st Married Marathon/Triathlon: You have been training nonstop and pushing yourself, it wouldn’t be as easy without your partners help. You swam, biked and ran together as a team. You crossed the finish line, now relax and enjoy this wine!
She also made (yes, made) these adorable wine bottles using the quote and colors from our wedding invitations.
I can’t get over how unique and thoughtful this gift was! To say the shower was a success would be an understatement. I couldn’t have asked for a better evening– it was perfect! Thanks again to all of my friends and family who came out to celebrate with me. Stay tuned for bachelorette shenanigans!Keep in touch with me:
