wedding wednesday

From my own wedding experience I've already shared the ring, the engagement shoot, and the invitation. Now for some of the pre-wedding festivities! Tay & I were lucky to have three- count 'em, THREE- bridal showers. And all three had a sweet, charming, and rustic feel. The first was a jack-and-jill shower in New York with his parent's friends and both of our families from the North.

This day was not just fun, but was when everything started to feel REAL. Like, "Wow, we are really getting married and building a life together!" We felt so blessed to be surrounded by our loving family & friends.

The second  shower was in Athens hosted by my bridesmaids. Let's just say these girls really know how to throw a Southern soiree.

The girls blew me away with their thoughtfulness and ALL the precious details. The menu, made by my MOH Erin, was incredible and I'm so wishing I could go back and enjoy it all over again!

The third (and last!) shower took place outside of Atlanta and was hosted by my mom's best friends- who are also like second-momma's to me too :)

The whole experience was so memorable and I feel very indebted to the love that was shown Taylor and I by our friends & family during our engagement. Oh, and just in case you were wondering- we registered here and here. We also ordered our thank you cards from here.
