    Mine's on Sunday!  I have a totally awesome outfit I'm super excited to wear - a one shoulder white dress from J Crew (it has pockets, which is amazing), and a cute teal Japanese obi belt in teal with gold accents, and gold glitter heels from Nine West.  I can't remember being this excited about an outfit ever!

    That's all I know.  And a vague idea of who is coming.

    That sounds really cute! I went to Dillards the other day to look for RD dresses and found one I loved... then realized it had been worn and returned. :/ It had a pink stain on the bottom part and makeup around the collar! People are shameless! Of course there weren't any more like it either because it was on clearance.

    That's terrible!  I got my RD dress on Ideeli - it had originally been $250, I got it for $65.  It is very cute, but I never would have paid $250 for it!  $65 seems just about right to me.

    I had mine two weeks ago!  It was absolutely wonderful.  My mom did a great job with the food and she made a champagne punch.  My MOH made a killer signature drink.  A really good friend of mine came up with a few games which was a great way to bring everyone together.  Three friends of mine I haven't seen in almost 4 years flew in for the weekend to celebrate.  Everyone was so generous and I got some of my favorite registry items.  I felt so blessed.  After the younger ladies from the party all went out for my bachelorette which was the time of my life.  It was just the most perfect weekend.

    My bridal shower is on July 28th (16 days!!) I can't wait!! There isn't really a theme but it will be a girly pink and white party. Soo I got a super cute off white sparkly peplum dress. I'm going to wear white heels and a white floppy hat with it! I can't wait to be in a room full of my friends and family. =D It's going to be great.

    mine is on july 27th, and my bachelorette is the next day (2 BM's are from out of town so we planned for both to be in the same weekend to save them a trip). i still don't have anything to wear to the shower!
    Happily married since 9/1/2012!

    How exciting!

    volley- That sounds so wonderful! It's so much fun when you have all of your favorite people in the same room. Smile

    I'm just going to live vicariously through you all for now with the showers! If someone decides to throw FI and me a shower between now and September 29th, then great, if not great as well! I am just so excited that our wedding is only a little over two months away- we have been engaged since May 2011 and although I have enjoyed every minute of the engagement, I am so ready to begin forever with FI.

    We're having two, the first one was June 23rd, a lot more people showed up than we thought when we were making the guest list, and they were more generous than I would have expected.  It was a lot of fun, my only regret was I don't feel like I got to talk to hardly anyone mainly hi's/how are yous and move onto the next person.  I loved my dress, it was a black and white print from White House Black Market.

    My second shower with FI's family is July 29th, invitations went out Monday, so I'm getting excited!  Not sure what to wear for it though, my FMIL went to the shower with my family/friends, and took a lot of pictures, so that dress is out and I'd like to get something new, but I'm not sure.

    I had my friends one two weeks ago. It was a tea party theme and I just wore a dress I already have. My family shower is Saturday and I am wearing a white dress I bought for our engagement pictures.

    Mine is Saturday, I have no idea who is coming/how many.  I found a really cute peach color dress, maybe peach with white flowers. It is cute, I think.  I was right at the start of my monthly visit from auntie and was bloated, crabby and just done with picking out and trying on dresses.  I hope I still like it Saturday.

    Mine is August 19. I'm wearing a white dress from VS with teal & lime green heels. I'm undecided about my jewelry yet. My shower is being held at a local restaurant (although I'm not supposed to know that, oops).

    Mine is August 11th. I'm wearing a white flowy blouse that I wore for our e-pics, some nice navy blue shorts and navy blue and white striped wedges. My mom (weirdly) put "wear comfortable clothes" on the invites so I don't want to look too casual. I'll just jazz it up with jewelry and makeup =)

    Mine is the 28th and I am very excited ! We are having a very "girlie" shower in the afternoon and then because our families and friends are from all over we are having a mixer BBQ that evening which will be far more casual. I haven't found my outfit for the shower yet but we all have shirts that we are wearing for the mixer...team bride and team groom complete with coach shirts! I cannot wait to hear how everyone else's shower turns out!

    Mine is August 19th at a local restaurant.  I have no idea what to wear... I've looked at hundreds of dresses (I'm having a harder time picking out this dress then my wedding dress haha... but I'm not really a "dress" person...especially shorter dresses)  Its exciting, alot of out of town people will be there

    Thanks, that's sweet of you! I have 5 BM's and my sister who is MOH is out of the country until next week so there could be something in the works that I just haven't heard about yet- who knows! I'm good either way though. I know they're planning a spa trip for my Bachelorette and I'm super excited about that! <img src="http://cdn.cl9.vanillaforums.com/downloaded/ver1.0/content/scripts/tinymce/plugins/emotions/images/smiley-smile.gif" border="0" alt="Smile" title="Smile" />

    Ditto on this. Even on the wedding date! :

    I have one small shower being thrown at the church I grew up in, but otherwise I don't have extended family on my side that would usually offer to throw a shower. I've attended several showers for my FI's cousins but no one has talked about throwing me a shower. Which is fine, but frankly a little surprising to me considering I've attended numerous showers for people I didn't know that well. Oh well :

    Mine was in June and was beautiful. I like words with friends type word games, scrabble etc, so they used that as the theme. here's the blog post i did on it that showcases some of the handmade stuff my girls did:
    http://spotofteadesigns.com/2012/07/05/scrabble-themed-bridal-shower/

    advice for the dresses: try to find something a little longer if you can and watch the cleavage when you lean over. they tend to stick you at a chair facing everyone so they can all see you open up the gifts. most of them sit on the floor so you're leaning over a lot for photos and just in person! don't want to be showing off too much! :)

    also for thank you notes, after the shower, just address them all first to those who came or sent gifts. you can probably do that all in one night without having to think about what to actually write in them but stil accomplishing the goal of getting them out. I wouldn't necessarily do it before the shower as some might not attend to send gifts at all.

    just a few tips (i went to 5 showers in 3 months including mine so everything is fresh in my mind!)
