a bridal shower
I attended a lovely bridal shower this weekend...one of my *new* friends is getting hitched in a few short weeks....sooooo exciting!!
I haven't attended ooodles of showers...a few...and my own of course. I like showers - getting a little dressed up...picking out a gift for my friend...mingling with nice ladies...and watching the bride-to-be in all of her glowing excitement. I had fun at this shower - it reminded me of how much fun I had at my shower last spring (and it made me miss my friends back home!)
My gift to the bride was a Megan Hamilton sketch of her jaw-dropping GLORIOUS pink wedding dress. It was a hit! I was super sneaky in finding out her dress, so everyone was surprised (there were a couple gasps...gotta love a "gasp" reaction!) She loved it!! So did everyone else! Dress sketches are a crowd/bride pleasing gift that is sure to be treasured for years to come. (I had my dress sketched, and gave my mom a sketch of her dress too!!)
I could shoot myself for not scanning the image before giving Ashely her sketch this weekend - I would have loved to show you (it was a pretty pretty pink!) Instead, enjoy these sketches I found from Megan Hamilton's Etsy shop.
