The Bridal Shower

My daughter's bridal shower was this past Saturday, May 14th, 2011. It could not have gone more beautifully. She looked so happy and radiant! The glowing bride to be was in awe of all her gifts which took two long hours to open (we had to tell her open all the cards later at home as we began to get tired of watching her and knew she needed a break:).

Here are some pictures of that day:

the favors were these darling wine topper!!! Certainly come in handy and everyone loved them!

She got SO many beautiful things, these were one of the big hits...
just so beautiful with their names and wedding date engraved on them.

 Someone is embarrassed but every bride needs her pretty night gown for the honeymooon (wink-wink)
