Today, Meg and I have become great friends thanks to not only her relationship with Jackie, but also since she will be marrying my brother-in-law Dan next month! How'd they meet you ask? Well, one particular weekend a couple years ago Meg and Dan met while they were both out in Boston at the same bar. I love the fact that they weren't exactly set up. And that after a few drinks, Dan had the guts to go talk to the tall, beautiful blonde he'd seen. And as they say, the rest is history. :) Yep, they have been together ever since.
So with that said, on to the wedding events! I feel very honored to be one of Meg's bridesmaids. Once the wedding date was set for late June, we knew exactly when we needed to host Meg's shower. There was no question that a Kentucky Derby Bridal Shower wouldn't be a huge hit.
Without further ado, the pictures:
Floating Candle centerpieces
The Favors - mint seed heart paper to plant
Mason jar center pieces
Prizes for the games
Gorgeous bouquet for the Bride-to-be to take home
Amazing Derby hat cake
Don't ask where I came up with the flower bed idea, because I have no idea- it was literally like a lightbulb went off one night. But, I couldn't have pulled it off without the bridesmaids help!
What a good-lookin couple!
Mint Julep Lemonade was soo good! And we served them in Derby cups. I'll have another please. :)
My mom, sister, and I
Cheers to Meg!
What a proud mama moment

Dan showed up in a Derby suit & brought his bride flowers. What a guy. :)
A quick game of who knows who best. This went over so well!

And the future son-in-law.
The shower was a complete success!
Afterwards, I headed to my parents to relax for a bit and watch the Kentucky Derby race. Although I was rooting for Bodemeister, I'll Have Another (cookie that is) won the race. It was exciting to watch. (And a perfect post title)
Next on the list of wedding events is Meg's bachelorette party in June at an undisclosed location. ;) And then it's the big day!! Gahd I can't wait!!
Cheers to Meg & Dan!
