This past Saturday I was kidnapped(!) and brought to my bridal shower! Since I’m a control freak and like to know everything, I knew the date of the shower. Instead, my sister picked me up, blindfolded me and led me to all the important women in my life at a surprise location. My bridesmaids did such a great job planning, it was obvious that each detail was so thoughtful.
Since Ryan and I registered for our honeymoon, I didn’t open up gifts. So as an ice breaker, my sister came up with games to play in between drinking wine and stuffing our delicate little lady faces. The first game was fun because everyone shared a memory of me or shared love/sex advice. (My favorite was my mother in laws: “Sex is better than chocolate… Less fattening unless you get pregnant. In that case, I would like to request a granddaughter.”) Perhaps the gifts I got on my lingerie line, and some other scandalous gifts in my honeymoon wishing well will eventually lead to that!
My bridesmaids: Erin (Ryan’s sister), Christine (my sister and MOH), Me, Kelsey and Dana
Me cheesing it up by my lingerie line!
My “Mrs. Dreissig” hanger for my wedding dress photo!
Me and my fiance! He surprised me with flowers and walked in just as my sister was sharing sex advice to make him blush. :)
How cute is this sweatshirt that my sister made me? I love that it says my name, rather than “Bride” because I’ll be able to wear it more than one day. This will be my jet setting ensemble!
My favors! They are heart shaped measuring spoons and they have a quote from RENT:
“Five hundred twenty-five thousand moments so dear,
How do you measure, measure a year? How about love? Measure in love…”
I feel so incredibly lucky, and am enjoying every moment of this crazy, special time in my life.
