My First Bridal Shower!!!

This past Sunday was my first Bridal Shower, and holy smokes, I wish I could do that every weekend! I was a big ball of emotions before the shower, I've been to so many showers before and to think that I was the bride this time, this shower was for ME was completely overwhelming.

My Aunt Toni and Cousin Ali were the lovely hosts:

So sad this pic is blurry!
The shower was out by Toni's pool and it was a perfect day!

We played some great games, one of which was a new spin on the old "Toilet Paper Wedding Dress Game." My Aunt got a ton of random items and each team had to construct a wedding gown, veil and bouquet using the ridiculous things.
My mom and step-mom were the team captains (and models) and the end result was absolutely hilarious!

After the games I opened presents, and to say that I was showered would be a huge understatement. My friends and family are so thoughtful and so generous and I absolutely love everything I got!

The best part about the shower, though, were the fabulous people that were there!
