Bridal shower pics

My word - planning a wedding- or should I revise that and say planning a wedding for over 350 people is a lot of work! And I am only the mother of the groom - I can't imagine what the bride and bride's mother are going through...well, yes I can! The big day is coming up - 6 days and counting..

The bridal shower was a huge success. And I would say 97% of all whom were invited came. I am sharing just a couple pictures that someone took with my inexpensive camera. Most of the pictures were taken with my cell phone. And I have to be honest with you - these high tech smart phones can be very confusing. So as soon as I find time to go on their website and figure out how to download the pictures off my phone and onto my computer, I should have more pictures to share.

This picture is of the groom-to-be and his little sister! Quite a few people chose to wear the color coral to the shower - even the bride-to-be!

I'm not sure who took this picture, sorry for the blurriness! This picture is of the moms and the soon to be Mr. & Mrs.

Monica, our Maid of Honor has been a huge help - she helped with the planning of the bridal shower. She also acted as a translator since polish is the dominant language on the bride-to-be's side of the family! In addition, she planned all the festivities for the bachelorette party, and is now planning a few little events for the morning of the big day as the girls are getting ready!  One of the 'events' is asking the moms, close girlfriends and the groom to write a letter to the bride. She will collect these letters at the rehearsal dinner. The morning of the wedding, as the bride is getting ready, she will read the letters. Such a sweet and loving gesture! So I made a card and will plan to write my thoughts and sentiments inside. I took this layout off the back of a Melissa Frances sticker sheet!

All papers and stickers are from Melissa Frances, metal heart is from Blue Moon, heart stick pin is from Maya Road. Ribbon, flower and pearls are from my stash.

I'm off to write my letter to the bride. Enjoy the rest of your week!
