The last wedding shower I hosted was three years ago for my friend Hillary. Her colors were green and black. Her new last name started with a "B".
We played a fun game and picked out names for each "nightie" she got and then wrote them all on pieces of paper so on her honeymoon - her husband could choose a "name" and then she would wear the corresponding gown. It was a lot of fun.
I had several really nice showers when I was engaged. This shower was thrown by Scott's home church. It was so nice and different. They had us come up on a Saturday and open all the gifts with just our family. And then the shower was the next afternoon and they laid out all the opened gifts on tables for everyone to look at and then I basically stood in the house and everyone came and spoke to me.
This isn't a very good picture but it was me and the two Judys (our moms) in front of the beautiful table.
(Funny story about that sweet old lady in the blue shirt - you know you are in the south when you are at a really nice shower in the fall and a sweet old lady in a pretty outfit and perfect make-up comes up and says "I'm so and so and it's nice to meet you. By the way - we are going to kick the tails off of Alabama this week." I got so tickled!)
This was the traditional kind where you sit in a circle and open gifts while everyone watches you - very chawing to me!
