Bridal Shower Review (the final chapter)

         With everyone now sated, the attention was turned to the gift opening. But before I get to that let me give a great deal of credit to Beth, my wife. She worked hard making, melting/molding, the favors of white and milk chocolate pieces. She purchased these small, blue, chinese take-out style, gift boxes and wrapped them with ribbon and a bow, (very nice touch). She and Gregg’s mom Janice, put the floral centerpieces together. The color scheme for the wedding is blue and green, so they went with blue Hydrangias as the main, with four tea roses in square vases on each side.     Also the bridesmaids came up with the idea of corkscrews, with their names and the date of the wedding on them so when you have some wine you’ll think of Rachel and Gregg. (Pretty clever I think).

    Rachel (who looked stunning I might add) and Gregg had registered at Crate and Barrel and Bed Bath and Beyond, and they were not disappointed, their registry was very successful. Did I say Rachel Looked stunning? See for yourself. 

    The games the girls came up with were unique as well. One had a timer that determined who won a bottle of wine, and wine glasses (seen in the main photo), or a ceramic blue and green Starbucks “to go” style container, filled with their delicious coffee packages, if Rachel was opening your gift when the timer went off…..You Win!! The other was a story made up of the words left and right, and each table had a piece of red paper that was passed according to the story, (not always correctly) and when the story ended the person with the paper won the floral center pieces, (kind of funny really). Nice job by Jen on that one. Also in attendance was the junior wedding party.(See below). Finally, one last word on the LaCantina. Some of the guests who were not from the area were impressed enough to say they would travel the 17-20 miles to dine there again. A wonderful day for a wonderful couple and for all who shared in it.

Thanks for reading,

    what a great series Jack. Nice photos too. Good to see Denise, Shirley and Bim! You really captured a lovely day.

    • You are too kind. Great time but I could have done a better job with the pics. Some were too dark, some were not good…
      Everyone had a great time. Another party coming in August. Be prepared..
