I have the true and pleasure and honor of being in one of my best friend's wedding in April as her Maid of Honor. Hers is the very first wedding I'm a bridal attendant in :) One of her best friend, Sarah, is her Maid of Honor and Sarah and I chatted over coffee over this week brainstorming for Mackenzie's shower.
We first picked out the invitations and then went from there to have our color scheme nailed down. We want to do something very pretty, feminine and classic. For decorations we're going to do a lot of fresh flowers and candles. Of course we'll have engagement pictures of Mackenzie and Sam scattered throughout the house and a pretty banner to hang from the mantel piece. Sarah and I are going to try our hand at the cupcake bridal gown and fingers crossed it turns out well! I've also got a few other ideas up my sleeve, but don't want to give anything away too early, just in case the bride reads this ;)
Mackenzie is a gem and is one of the sweetest people you will ever meet. I can't wait to shower her with love in anticipation for her wedding day. Mackenzie has truly let the Lord lead her regarding her relationship and it is a true blessing to watch His story unfold for her and to bring her Sam. The next few months will be full of wedding goodness to celebrate this sweet friend and I am so very excited!
I've thrown one other shower before, but it was at a cafe in town so we didn't decorate much and had the cafe do the food, so I'm excited this go-round to be hosting at my house! I think Murphy might have to spend the afternoon in the backyard while the house of full of ladies, we know he can't keep his paws off the ladies ;) Literally, always pawing at people and trying to get in their laps, ha!
Happy Friday, I hope you're weekend treats you well! Tomorrow is Josh's 30th birthday, so we'll be celebrating all day long!
