Wedding Shower Weekend!

Whacky weather lately, huh? On Saturday, despite the unpredictable weather, the day was made extra bright when we celebrated Julie and Ryan's Wedding Shower with friends, family and fun bridesmaids!

I am so honored to be a part of Julie and Ryan's special day, and this weekend we kicked off the festivities!
Bridal Party!

The Happy Couple

Her pink and black color theme carried throughout, from table cloths to pink lemonade!

Adorbs and Delish!
The wedding shower included sweet treats, beautiful flower surprises from the groom, and fun "how well do you know each other" couples' quiz. They looked happy and relaxed and it gave the bridesmaids a chance to catch up and get to know new faces too.
Later that evening, we headed down to W. 25th to have some girls-only fun at the bachelorette party! It started with dinner and drinks in the private room at Bar Cento.  *Shout out to Moira for taking care of us!* :)
OMG! JP is getting Married!

Best Bachelorette Party Gift!
After dinner, we had a whirlwind of a time at Market Garden Brewery, awkward encounters at
ABC Tavern and finished the night with an unexpected rain storm on the patio at Nano Brew. It was laughing, fun, not-THAT-obnoxious-party, time. I must say, I'm thankful that Julie is such a laid-back, witty,  sweet, and go-with-the-flow gal. Call her anti-Bridezilla! Yes, I am one grateful bridesmaid (and taking notes for future reference!)

And big thanks to the co-maids of honor Gina and Emily for throwing a rocking wedding shower/bachelorette weekend! Pyaw!
Color me bad!
What was your best/most memorable bachelorette party? Have any fun/cool bridal party tips or traditions I should note for the big day?  Share your positive thoughts!


  1. Ahhh! I got a JAM shout-out! My life is now complete! :) Seriously though, SO good to see you the other night & you guys were a total joy to wait on! Best bachelorette party I've had (god, that cake still haunts me...)

    We should grab drinks or something soon!

    1. Haha! Thanks, lady. We had a lot of fun too. And yes, that cake was quite horrifying.. I'd love to get together for some drinks too! You pick the place, I'm buying.

  2. I LOVE the beer favors - what an adorable idea! Glad you had a fun time!

    1. Sounds like someone may have some ideas for her wedding plans too :) Congrats again, girlfriend!
