Well my daughters wedding shower was a huge success! We all worked hard to have things go off without a hitch and we had enough food for double the amount of people that were invited. I think people took home more than they actually ate at the shower.
How to save on a bridal shower
Having a big event like a double bridal shower can also be very expensive but there are things that can be done to help save.
- Make your own invitations. K and I bought the blank invitations at the local large craft supply store. We were EXTREMELY lucky because we have a close friend who loves to make these things. I spent about an hour on the computer and couldn’t get the things lined up right. After about an hour of me trying then breaking out in a cold sweat K took over and that didn’t go so well. So in panic we called a friend.
- Buy bulk items that are not perishable long before the date. If you can hit the sales even better. Store it away and keep a list handy so that you know what you have and still need.
- Put cash aside for the “little” things that may be needed last minute.
Last but not least just remember to stay as relaxed as possible. These events can be very stressful and Moms get VERY tired. After it was all done and over and the kids were happy we are happy with the way it turned out.
The day before the wedding shower was the Royal Wedding. Did I watch? Oh yes, I did! I have a daughter getting married in August. Did I get emotional all by myself? You betcha! Oh, and Christie, I was thinking about you too. J
Want to know my last words while watching the wedding on my television? If the royal family can do it well then I can too!
