I didn't really have anything to do with this shower, but my mom and I got pulled in for backup to help setup and get everything put together.
Her shower was on Saturday afternoon. Friday when we got into town, we headed over to the church with her cousin and aunts to start doing some preliminary stuff.
We spent a couple hours on Friday dipping strawberries in chocolate and white chocolate to make centerpieces that the host Amanda and her mom came up with.
Once they were finished they sat in the fridge overnight and were put out the following morning. Amanda had previously thrown a shower that was red and black in theme, so most of the decorations were reused from that. All of the tables got one of these cute centerpieces.
All of the aunts and the bride's mom were responsible for bringing different foods for the shower. We ended up with a huge spread of food that was absolutely delicious!
I just realized I never got a picture with Bri at her shower, but here's my favorite one from the day.
(p.s. that cute black dress I have on, I bought at Walmart the day before for $12. It's so comfy!)
Later that night they had their joint bachelor/bachelorette party. They rented a bus to drive us all around for 5 hours to all of the bars around the area. All of their aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends were there. So it was basically all of the people that we go camping with every summer. It was a blast!
Me, the bride to be, and Britt
A shot of the bus we quickly decorated before it picked everyone up.
And the majority of the rest of the pictures are full of drunken debauchery. It was a great night, we all got drunk with our parents, and no one had to drive home!
And I just had to share...
Are any of you contemplating a joint bachelor/bachelorette party? Or did you already have one?
