My Bridal Shower

Rory: If the house was burning down, what would you save first, the cake or me?
Lorelai: Not fair! The cake doesn’t have legs! –Gilmore Girls

My bridal shower was in absolutely amazing. I’m so so lucky to have such incredible friends and family. When I first walked in, I was blown away by the decorating job that Couple Wife had done. She really went above and beyond anything I could have imagined. I will let the pictures speak for themselves.

The first thing I saw when I walked in was my beautiful Barbie cake. Isn’t she gorgeous?!

The wine glasses were hand painted by Couple Wife and she put everyone’s names on the bottom. It was a great way for all of the ladies to get to know each other. Much more creative than name tags! Plus the girls got to keep their glasses as a party favor.

Old Married Wife made the cupcakes. They were snickerdoodle flavored with a cream cheese frosting. They were so delicious! My mouth is watering just thinking about them.

My dress fit perfectly and it was a total hit. I felt like a princess. The sash the girls gave me was the perfect accessory.

Single Girl, Tahoe Girl, Monica, and Me. This is our Sex and the City photo shoot.

The first game we played was “Toilet Paper Bride”. We split up into teams and each group had a “bride” and the girls had to design a dress for her out of toilet paper. We got such greatร‚ย ab workouts from laughing so hard. I was the bride for my group (of course). Geeky, Brazil, and my Neighbor were on my team.

Apparently I’m a Kung Foo Bride. ๐Ÿ™‚

Couple Wife made sure that FMIL got to be a bride too. Hehehe. She had SO much fun. The aunties were in charge of her get up.

Single Girl, Old Married Wife and Monica designed Tahoe Girl’s gown.

Me, FMIL, Mother in Law’s Cousin, and Tahoe Girl

FMIL’s dress won because it was the only dress that actually covered all her lady parts. Oh and it had sleeves-fabulous!

The second game was 20 questions. Couple Wife had asked Match 20 questions ahead of time, and then I had to guess how he answered each question. For every question I got right, I got to kiss his pin up photo.

PS how cute is pregnant Couple Wife?

I’m totally swooning over Match in this picture. He is such a hunk! ๐Ÿ™‚ I ended up getting almost all of the questions right, and I even elaborated on them the same way that Match did. Everyone was laughing and awwing as Couple Wife said, “hmm maybe you spend too much time together!”

One of the questions: “What is DG’s favorite book?” His answer? “Twilight, DUH!” hehehe. There were also some embarrassing questions, such as “What does Match say is your favorite physical feature of his?” The answer? His butt! I was beet red because his mom was sitting right in front!!

We also played a panty game, and I’m still waiting for pictures from that. I think it deserves its own post because it’s hysterical. So after all the games, Match stopped by because the guys were going out for drinks, and Single Girl (whose nickname really needs to change) had left her boyfriend’s wallet in her car and he needed his id. So Match walks outside to be bombarded with whoops and hollers from all the slightly inebriated ladies. This was after the shirtless picture game so they were screaming at him to take off his shirt. He ran away the minute he could, but not before I stole a kiss.

The party was incredible, and FMIL was very well behaved. She was blown away by all of the decorations, and the effort that my friends put forth for me. I think CW definitely helped by giving her some extra attention. I couldn’t have asked for a better shower.

Have you ever been to a bridal shower? Have you played the Toilet Paper game?



    Awe!!! Love the pictures! The cake beautiful! And the decorations are wonderful! Everything looks so nice ๐Ÿ™‚ And I love that it was outside. Looks laid back, yet fancy and fun. I’m so glad you had fun and I love the dress! Thanks for sharing that site! They have so many cute dresses, I’m definitly going to have to order 1 (or 2) lol.

    Can’t wait to hear about the panty game. I’ve been to many showers but none that sound as fun as yours was ๐Ÿ™‚

    Oh and PS glad FMIL took a chill pill for the day ๐Ÿ˜‰


    Aw! That looks like it was a lot of fun! I love the cake and your dress is so super cute!!

    Stopping by from SITS!

    Your bridal shower was so cute, and I just about to died over your cake. It looks like something that would be on ace of cakes or cake boss! And the shower looked like a blast. I can really see your weight loss/toning too! I read a few entries back I wonder if your mother-in-law is being so over the top controlling because she knows your mother can’t be there for some of the events? So she is trying to step in. But I don’t know your mother in law so she just might be controlling ๐Ÿ™‚ And I know that behavior is more frustrating because you wish your mother could be there for those events. But at least she behaved at the shower, and I hope things calm down a bit.

    I would love to do a banner for you, I just wrapped up my first design for someone and it was so fun. But nerve-wracking because I’m new and a perfectionist! Just shoot me an e-mail about what youรขโ‚ฌโ„ขre looking for and I’ll see what I can do!

Your comments make my day!
