Last Saturday was my friend's bridal shower. As Matron of Honor (I prefer the term Maid of Honor but seeing as how I'm married now that isn't technically proper I guess....poo), it is part of my job to host the bridal shower. It proved to be a bit difficult, especially since I'm so far away from the bride-to-be, but I think it was pulled off okay. I co-hosted with my friend's fiance's mom and sister. And, since I needed a USA liaison to help do my planning, I enlisted the help of my friend's fiance who was more than pleased to help. In fact, he came up with the cute idea to have the bride to be where a Hawaiian grass skirt at the shower (it was a Hawaiian-themed shower so it made sense...they're going to Hawaii for their honeymoon).
So, with the help of Mr. Bride-to-be and the other co-hosts, the shower was a success. But, the most impressive part of the shower I believe was the cake. I emailed this picture to the cake lady of what I wanted...just something I found online:
Here are more photos of the shower. These are the only ones I have...they were sent quickly by the bride's fiance as he scurried about delivering all the decorations and other items I had shipped to him.
At least I'll get to be there for the wedding in June.
