Next up chronologically are the wedding showers. We had two awesome showers thrown by my sister and sister in-law. My sister threw us a "glamping" couple's shower and my sister in-law hosted a super classy family shower. Check out the details below.
Above you see the "glam" side of the glamping shower - my sister thought it would be fun to play off one of the big differences between T.J. and I - he is an outdoorsman, and I prefer to observe the outdoors through my living room window. :-) "Glamping" is glamorous-camping, and it is a real thing! Below is the "camping" side of the glamping shower.
The invitations were super cute too. They included this defintion of glamping:
Glamping: Glamour camping. Satisfying your craving for the outdoors, while still enjoying a nice glass of wine and a comfortable bed.
The idea of roughing it during a camping trip might sound appealing if it weren't for the bugs, wild animals, sudden storms, leaking tents, smelly sleeping bags and questionable food. For a number of people (lizi), their first camping experience often becomes their last, but there is now a camping option growing in popularity. Welcome to the world of glamorous camping.She used these adorable images on the invitations:
I made the dress below especially for the couple's shower.
I love this Scrabble game piece holder with our names - it is in my living room now!
Next up is the family shower. I made my dress for this one too, inspired by my shoes. I bought the wedges a year or two before and didn't have anything to wear them with. Being able to sew whatever I want helps solve many a fashion issue!
Just looking at the eclairs is making my mouth water...
Notice the vintage wedding cake topper and vintage china serving plates.
My sister in-law had my boquet ordered as a centerpiece so I could see it before the big day (above right). I was thrilled with it! Bright pink and glittery. What could be better?
