Reto post: Haley's prewedding festivities

We had Haley's Bridal Shower in August. Since she has always loved photography, we decided to give the shower a photo theme. We printed her engagement pictures and hung them throughout the room, placed them in frames everywhere and even set up a photobooth.

Shelby served the mimosas since she wasn't drinking any of them.

This photo won the photobooth contest that Haley judged.
We also played a game where people had to write as many details as they could remember about what Haley looked like at the shower. She was out of sight while they brainstormed.

Then it was time for the gifts.
Haley and her bridesmaids.
Then after some down time, it was time to take Haley out on the town for her bachelorette party. We took her to Press 626 for a delicious, fun filled dinner.
After dinner, it was time for some spicy gifts perfect for the bedroom and a trivia game.
Haley won panties for answering the questions about Justin correctly.
Then she opened lots of beautiful lingerie and a bottle of wine from each of us that we all labeled together for different occasions.
Then we made one more stop before heading back to my place to wrap up the night.
Shelby was the cutest prego van driver and Lisa and Linds spent some time with the gifts.
All the pretty ladies winding up the night.
Haley seemed to really enjoy all the prewedding festivities and we were all left looking forward to her big day!

Retro Post: Emma's pre-wedding festivities

One weekend in August after my travels had finally slowed down, I had the pleasure of throwing my friend Emma's Bridal Shower and Bachelorette Party.

My friend Ally and Adam's intern Carter co-hosted with me to create the perfect shower ambiance. We crafted decorations and the night before and it all turned out beautifully.
My co-hostesses with the mostess setting out our yummy brunch spread.
The shower off to a start...

Some games...Emma or Nima?
A bubble gum trivia game too.
Then it was time for gifts...she got some beautiful just a sampling...
I LOVE these coasters...our friend Crystal is SO crafty and talented!
Housewife ready thanks to Linda...
Bride and Groom cute.
I gave her a garter for her wedding day, which I even tea-dyed to work with her gown and a peddi too for those perfect toes in photos.
The Bride and her hostesses
From the shower, we all had a few hours to get ready for that evening's bachelorette festivities.
Nothing too crazy...just some lovely ladies headed out for a yummy dinner at Waterman's followed by some silly games and some pretty things for the honeymoon. It was such a fun night of celebration and it was funny for me because I somehow wound up being the only married lady in tow, haha!
It was a fun foreshadowing of how fun the wedding day would be.
