Stacy walking in for her Shower!

Maid of Honor and Bride-to-Be!

Mom with her two daughters

Stacy with her friends/bridesmaids

Stacy's Ensemble:
Dress: H&M
Shoes: Target

My sissy looked amazing in her white dress! I didn't know what she was wearing because she received the dress while I was in Houston as an early present from my Mom. They were going on and on about it, and I couldn't wait to see it, so when she walked in the room I was so ecstatic. She was so pretty, I almost cried!!!! It will take everything I can to not cry during the wedding. I don't want to be standing up at the altar like a blubbering idiot! ha-ha.

The theme I picked for the bridal shower was a "Fun Message Bridal Shower". Basically you come up with a word or phrase for the number of guests attending that's related to wedding/bridal shower stuff and assign each guest a letter of the word or phrase. The guest then buys the bride-to-be a gift that starts with their assigned letter.   I racked my brain for a phrase that had enough letters for the guests and made sense and would be sincere, when finally I thought of the invitations I created for the shower. Their theme was called "Love Never Ends" and I counted the letters and the phrase was a perfect match!! And it had a strong message. I was the only one who knew the phrase because I even kept it a secret from the bridesmaids who were helping me with the shower! I wanted them to be surprised too!

My Sister with her Bridal Shower presents that spell out the phrase "Love Never Ends"

My DIY Banner in her wedding colors (Burgundy, Black, & White)

I owe the idea for Do-It-Yourself (DIY) Banners to Lyndsey Marie of A Lovely Little Blog. She had up a blogpost one day on a baby shower that she helped plan for a friend and she had the cutest DIY Banner for it! I emailed her asking her how she made it, and then I made a bunch for Stacy's shower. Here are the others:

CONGRATULATIONS! As you can see we had tons of food!

One of the tips for this shower theme was to spell out the Bride's name above where she will sit to open presents.


We also played bridal shower games like bingo, and word scrabble

Stacy's Cupcake Tree. The cupcake toppers are rings and hearts!

The memory table with the signature frame and the shower guest book.

Floating Burgundy Rose Candle Centerpieces

The dessert and snack table

Sissy's Engagement Ring from Eddy

This really amazing fountain punch bowl that I ordered from It also lights up!

I made letter name tags for all of the guests beginning with the first letter of their first names.

Gift Opening Time!

My mom had the letter L and bought her Lingerie, and I had S and bought her a "Sister" book with great messages about sisters, and I created a photo book with pictures of the 2 of us over the years, so S for Sister! She received some really amazing gifts from everyone, but just too many pictures for this blog post!
Forgot to snap all the Bridal Shower Favors while they were all together! haha, but this is what they looked like

Me and my littlest cousin Rosabelle (on my Dad's side)

My sister and the guests said they had a wonderful time, and at the end of the day, that's all I could ask for to give my sister for this very special and important time of her life. It meant so much to me to be the Maid of Honor and to be able to throw her such a great party! Next up...Bachelorette Party!!!
