Bridal Showers

My mom and matron of honor threw the most beautiful bridal shower for me at the end of April. My idea for my bridal shower was to have the gifts be holiday themed. Each person received a holiday and they would get holiday home decor or things you would use for that holiday. It turned out to be amazing and I'm totally prepared for every holiday now! I love celebrating and decorating for the holidays, but it's just not something I would spend money on or buy when we need something more important. I'm a little frugal in that way.

The invitation and she even made "Thank You's" for me to use:

The holiday insert:



Most importantly, here is my outfit:

Top: Pink lace top from Forever 21, but I got it off Poshmark for $10.
Skirt: White Tulle Skirt from Space 46 for $74.
Shoes: Black and White Striped ANA pumps from JC Penny, but I got them off Poshmark for $22.
Necklace: Crystal Clusters from Purple Peridot for $29.99.


Centerpieces: 


Cute favors:

Yes this was a SnapChat! It was a wonderful day!


The ladies at school that I teach with threw a bridal shower for me too. They are too sweet! They brought in a delicious breakfast and yummy cupcakes. They decorated the Teacher Work Room, so cute!

 It was casual Friday at school, so of course I had to wear jeans! We only get to wear them once a week!


They had all of my students draw me in a wedding dress.Ha! I got a kick out of these! My face was copied onto the paper, they just drew the dress. I had quite the creative bunch of first graders this year.

Our final shower, was a couples cocktail party hosted by Colin's wonderful aunts. They are too sweet! Everyone got us a date night gift. We got everything from gift cards to restaurants, picnic and camp fire date nights, and even a dinner cruise date night. It was a lovely evening spent with friends and family.

 My mom and soon to be Mother in law! Love them!

 My favorite girls!!
