Wedding Recap Week

I can't believe that July 30th marks my one month anniversary! So far, marriage has been great. I have been wanting to blog about the wedding and honeymoon, but we have been so busy, and really not home very much until about a week ago. We've spent the past week getting settled into our place together, and we've made some real progress. It's really looking like "home", and that's a wonderful feeling.

I'm going to take this week to blog about our wedding and the festivities.

On the Thursday before our wedding, my sister gave me a dinner followed by a lingerie shower.

It was a fun--if not bizarre--right of passage. Some of my close girlfriends were there to join in the joviality (is that a word?).

If you've never been to a lingerie shower before, it's just what you would imagine. A bunch of girls get together to help the bride prepare for her honeymoon. They bring the bride things like this:

and saucy things like this:

We listen to rockin' love songs like this (gotta show Michael Bolton some love!):

and we eat things like this (yes, those would be bra-and-panty petit fours):

Because the bride is silly, she does things like this:

Sometimes, people tell funny stories which make my sister and me laugh like this. The funniest moment of the shower was when a thank you note was read from eSuitor thanking the group for attending "his" lingerie shower. :)

Many thanks to my sister, Jilly, who went to amazing lengths to make this party so fun! She somehow found this picture of me as a little girl playing dress-up in our mother's black slip, enlarged it and framed it for the party!

I love that picture of you and your sister laughing!

Laura said...

That is so awesome. This is why everybody needs a sister.

Ahh what a good time. I can't wait to hear about all your fun this week :) I'll have something to look forward to each and every day.

No, I didn't go see hairspray..I think I'll have to wait for the rental.

Starshine - That looks like so much fun! I love the relationship between you and your sister.

Totally fun! was your mom there? Miss Cherry didn't want a lingere shower, because she was too embarrased with her mom there. :) I had one, and it was totally fun, though to be honest, no mom was there.

I'll be out of town later this week, so don't feel bad if you don't see me commenting...

Love the petit fours. Looks like a fun event. And you got lots of stuff, yes?

Starshine said...

J - My mom was there, and it was no big deal at all!

Ally Bean - Thank you for showing me the correct spelling of petit fours. Changing the spelling right NOW!

For some reason google doesn't want to print my comments.
Looks like fun and many happy memories.
