Bridal shower

I just have to say that I am so blessed to have a wonderful church family! The ladies at my church threw a bridal shower for me yesterday. I think the word "shower" would be an understatement. "Flood" might be more accurate! When I brought everything home and showed it to FI, we just stood there together, nearly in tears, blown away by their generosity. Neither of us have lived on our own before, so we're starting from scratch and thanks to my church we are well on our way to having everything we need to set up housekeeping. 

Anybody else have a favorite bridal shower experience?

    Sounds like a great day!

    The ladies at my church threw me a shower/luncheon a few weeks after the wedding, we had a potluck lunch and the ladies brought a favourite recipe.  A few people brought small gifts (serving bowl, stained glass ornament, cookbook).  There was also a box for money donations - they thought it would be great to give me money for a flight to visit my H!  It was really thoughtful.

    Awesome!! That's wonderful. 

    My favorite shower moments were: hearing the advice cards read and when FI (now DH) showed up with flowers for me, my mom and his mom.

    My favorite gifts were the personal ones: a hanger with Mrs. and my new last name (that my wedding dress is still hanging on), Mr. and Mrs. mugs, a throw (blanket) with our names and wedding date embroidered and a frame that says Once Upon a Time that already had the pictures in it- one of each of us as babies and an engagement picture of ours in the middle.
