Last we left off, my sister and I had a relaxing morning complete with massages and delicious brunch. Soon, it was time to head to the shower!
The shower was held at a local hotel that was a good mid-point for both the guests from Milwaukee and the guests from Madison. We arrived right before the shower was to start, so most of the guests were there already. Here was the beautiful spread:
Table Settings: Matched our wedding colors! The paddles with the As you see in front of the place settings were for a really fun trivia game we played. The white sheets of paper were a wedding crossword puzzle all about me and Dr. Groomy that my bridesmaid KDoc created!
Once all the guests had arrived, we mixed and mingled…and ate and played a few games too! I took some time to snap pictures with as many people as I could:
This is most of the women from my Mom’s side of the family.
Front Row: Aunt Kathy, Cousin Brittany, Cousin Brooke, Aunt Teresa
Back Row: MOH (and sister) Ali, Me, Mom, Personal Attendant (and Cousin) Erin, Grandma
Good Friend Siewicz (a nickname based off her incredibly long and difficult to pronounce last name). She flew all the way from North Carolina to be here (she attended both my shower and her 10 year high school reunion on this day).
The one thing I forgot was getting a picture with all of my bridesmaids. So there’s a quick tip: make sure you do that! They all looked so lovely and I really regret and wish I would have remembered to capture that.
After games, food, and talk, I got to opening some gifts! My friends and family were so generous. I can’t wait to use everything we received!
Missed part one? Catch up here.
