Bridal Shower/hens

It's 5 days to go! Thanks for your beautiful comments. I never really thought we had a sweet story but I guess re reading that makes me really love our story.

I'm sorry I haven't been around but it's getting so close now and it's all happening. I had my bridal shower/hens on Saturday. Friday night Laura slept over and Melly was there too. We had this massive girly chat into the early hours of the morning. It was great! I haven't had a girly chat like that in soo long. I felt like I was back at school because we were laughing so much. I know that once I'm married I do not want to lose those girly chats.

As I mentioned I had my bridal shower/hens on Saturday. It was absolutely beautiful! It was more of an intimate gathering which I prefer over a large group because I get to spend time with them.

Here are some photos....... All taken from Liz's facebook. Various people took the photos.

Me with most of my brides maids. One is missing because she was off in Melbourne for the Australian Open tennis.

These are Laura's pretty lanterns. She used them for her wedding centre pieces. I'm thinking of borrowing them and putting butterflies like it is here. We also had some lanterns hanging off the pergola. Very pretty.
Another lantern and the pretty heart confetti.

Liz my matron of honour and I. She bought me a sash, badge and tiara of course :)

Crowning me.

Lovely Laura and I.

Gift time....reading the lovely cards. I truly did not expect to get anything.

The toilet paper wedding dress game.

I was being turned into a mummy. I couldn't walk in the end result.

Alice was portrayed as a hippy, boho bride. She's a friend from high school.

The back of my toilet paper wedding dress.

It was a really lovely day. We ate food and talked, some had facials and mini manicures. It was just a really relaxed fun day. I had my hair trial that afternoon too. I love my beautiful girls. They make everything so special.

Sorry I haven't been visiting blog lately. There's been so much happening. We are now officially house owners! We got the keys to our townhouse yesterday! It was so exciting and we are slowly moving things over. Though we dumped a bunch of boxes in the dark last night because our electricity is not hooked up yet.

Anyway, I will hopefully be able to do another post before the weekend. Eeeeeee!! 5 days!!

Thanks for your thoughts and prayers, Gracie. They mean a lot! (:

Five days, and I'm so excited for you! You're getting married on the very same day as my early birthday celebration and I will definitely think of you throughout the day, and what a beautiful bride you are!

Yayy, house owners! Congratulations! I thought the bit about moving boxes in the dark was pretty comical and cute! Hehe.

Take care Gracie! God bless you and Jason. x
