Wedding Paper Divas is bursting with staff grooms and brides-to-be who are currently planning their weddings. We’re happy to share their stories with you as a part of this fun feature!
This past weekend I celebrated my bridal shower with those nearest and dearest. My mom and a few friends flew up from Los Angeles to join my local friends and family—what a nice treat! I had no idea what to expect since they kept most of the details under wraps. They did however consult me on the invitations (I mean I do work at a stationery company, after all) and I’ve loved this design from Tiny Prints since the moment I laid eyes on it. So we re-purposed it for my bridal shower. How cute!
One of my bridesmaids had the shower at her house. While on the way there I realized I have never had a party thrown for me as an adult. A whole new experience! When I arrived, I was totally stunned at what a wonderful bash they all put together. Decorations, tons of delicious homemade food, a slide show of me throughout the years, music, friends, family and all kinds of fun, new games!
Here are some of the highlights:
This doesn’t do all the delicious food justice, but to give you a taste.
A few of my favorite people…
Dan’s adorable cousin modeling the latest wedding toilet paper fashion!
Opening tons of thoughtful gifts.
Jessica and Dan met nearly 7 years ago on Myspace. (Remember Myspace?) It took weeks of contemplation until they decided to finally meet… and I guess you could say the rest was history. After discovering their mutual shoe addiction, surviving countless Thanksgiving family meals together and three apartment/house moves later—they are officially ready to tie the knot.
Jessica and Dan are getting married May 27, 2012 at Malibou Lake Mountain Club in Los Angeles.
