Better late than never to share the deets from my bridal shower, huh?!

 

My Hawaiian themed bridal shower back in August was hosted by three of my bridesmaids, and they did such a fabulous job! This was the first official pre-wedding celebration because Tim and I opted out of an engagement party, so it I remember it all setting in on the ride there.

The theme was simple, it was summer and we were honeymooning in Hawaii. But not all showers require a theme, so if you’re stuck then just let the bride be the theme of the day! Photo booths are such a fun decor idea because you know there are going to be a lot of pictures taken, why not set up the backdrop up for social sharing success? My friends and I had so much fun posing with these cute props.  I’m not sure on all the decor details, but I think they purchased most of it from Etsy and Party City. I linked what I could find!

I do have to say the Macaroons were to die for. Tim’s sister Leanna found my new favorite little French cafe in downtown Marietta. The pineapple donut holes were also a cute extra dessert touch that I haven’t seen before. Also, doesn’t that cake deserve a shoutout!? It was oreo filling, yum! Your shower isn’t the time to deprive yourself if you’re been focusing on your weight for your wedding. Let it be your cheat day and enjoy it with all who is there to celebrate!

    • That's so exciting, I'd love to see how it turns out! We went to Hawaii for our honeymoon so it was an easy theme to go with.

  • Strutting in this @joulesclothing dress (c/o) with one of my new #bloggerbesties @pardonmuahinsta in our matching flower crowns at #tbscon | As soon as we both introduced ourselves as Amanda we had an instant connection and felt like we had already met before! Connecting with likeminded girls is at the top of my priorities list throughout 2018. I’ve been such a homebody and stuck in my own comfort zone and it’s time to change it up!

I created a girls only private Facebook group to connect this amazing community of women here. Yes, Y O U reading this! I want you to join and hope it can become your go to place to seek advice, share your success, and feel like you’re talking to your best friends. As I slowly start to put my true self out there on social media, I’ve realized that I’m not alone in this world. We all have insecurities, weird habits, and moments to celebrate 💕 I added the new group to the link in my bio for a short period of time, but I want to keep it relatively on the DL to connect with my real squad out there 🍓.
