Wedding Wednesday – Bridal Shower


Happy Wednesday everyone! It’s down right gross around here these days. We were so spoiled with the nice warm weather for the last two weeks. Now, they are screaming freezing rain and the whole town stops and says, “I thought it was spring?” People it’s March and Canada! ha ha!

In truth, my wedding Wednesday post this week was NOT going to be about a bridal shower. I don’t know what I would have chosen for a subject but I can pretty much say it wasn’t about a shower because I had NO IDEA that there was going to be one last weekend!

I mentioned that I had a bridal shower on Monday but I wanted to save the special details until today!

As I mentioned, to say that I was surprised is an understatement! I think my radar was down being that it is still March. Another factor is that with the nice weather, work has been NUTS and I have been going full speed not focusing on much except getting through everyday life.

The shower was considered a “community/church” shower. Where neighbors, friends and church ladies all attended. It was held in the beachbarn that we are trying so hard to rebuild but so beautifully decorated you hardly even knew it was the same place!


White table cloths and chair covers.


Chandelier in the middle

And with lots of vintage touches, just like the wedding theme!


Lace and family artifacts acted as decorations.

The food (a brunch) was prepared by the Cafe 349 and was delicious!

I was very shocked to be at a shower in honor of myself. It is a very surreal and humbling feeling looking out at everyone who was there happy for you and your upcoming nuptials!




I was “showered” with such beautiful things! Each and every gift was so special and appreciated! With each present I opened I kept picturing using it in the future when I am a Mrs.!


A quilt that I was told was being used as decoration was actually a family heirloom. The quilt it over 100 years old and has been lovingly repaired (many, many hours of labor!)  by my cousin Shirley Mae and passed down to me by my Aunt Elaine.


All the pictures were taken by my sister in law Holly. I wish I could have gotten one of her and I because it was Holly who thought up, organized and put on this amazing shower for me! It was so unbelievably special and I am so thankful to her for planning such a wonderful event!

I know that I have been in bride mode for over a year now. However, being that I am not an overly girly person I haven’t had many moments where I have truly felt like a bride.

Last Saturday, I had that feeling. That special feeling and realization of, “wow I’m getting married”.

I am so thankful and appreciative to all those who organized, orchestrated and attended my very first shower. Thank you, thank you, thank you!



  1. This is so sweet!! :) It looks like a gorgeous shower! I love the idea of the quilt... so pretty!!!!!

  2. Aww so sweet! So glad that you got to enjoy a bride moment. Especially with everything being so crazy at work. Hope you enjoyed every second of it! You deserve it!

  3. Wish I could have been there!God bless.
