As I mentioned in my post Monday, this past weekend I had the honor of attending a friend's bridal shower. Lauren is marrying one of J's best friends, Ryan, and J is the best man in their wedding.
They've been together for as long as I can remember now, and are getting married Memorial Day Weekend.
Random fact - Lauren & Ryan also have a Beabull! Only their dog, Oscar is an English bulldog/Beagle Mix, where as Tucker is an American Bulldog/Beagle Mix. You can definitely see the difference, here are the 2 as pups last year-
What a good sharer Tucker is! :) Although his eyes are definitely saying mom, he's hogging my bed...haha
Anyways, back to the bridal shower! I had so much fun. I've become friends with the girlfriends and fiance's (and soon to join the wifey club with me!) of some of J's good friends and they are always hilarious. Never a dull moment.
Here's a play by play of the shower in photos...
Although this shower wasn't a "surprise" it is still so overwhelming to walk into a whole room of women! Lauren walked in simply beaming.
I don't have a picture of it, but Ryan also ripped the ribbons off our gift to them. Babies to come! Tell me you've heard of this old wives tales? I made sure to wrap our gift with tight ribbon. :)
And lastly, what do you get when the groom's parents own a Floral & Candy Shop? Gorgeous centerpieces!
According to Ryan's mom, Lauren was originally thinking of using Mason Jars for the flowers at their wedding but has since decided she'd like something a little more formal. So, being the sweet, thoughtful woman that she is, she incorporated the Mason Jars and twine into the shower!
And because there were at least 4 vases on every table, including where the cake and brunch buffet were....there were more than enough to go around! Yes, this happened...
Oh, and this too...
Extra chocolates for J!
And I'm happy to report that my vase is still looking beautiful.
Oh, and to help you locate this talented florist, here's a link to their website - Candy Jar and Designs in Bloom
They did our wedding flowers and I loooooved my bouquet! I've actually loved every bouquet I've received from them! And no, they have no idea that I'm giving you a link to their site, or praising their hard work. But seriously, if you're on the South Shore of MA, check them out!
Congratulations Lauren & Ryan! I hope you enjoyed your bridal shower and got many of the gifts you've registered for!
Next up on the wedding list is a friend of mine from home! I still owe you a post on her shower which took place a few weeks ago, but her bachelorette party is this weekend so I will be posting about both soon! :)
