*Today’s post is part on my on going Wedding Wednesday Series. My chance to ramble on about non-running, wedding related stuff.*
I am loving every bit of wedding celebration that leads up to our big day in 17 days.
I was so excited when I saw an invite go around our work emails for an office bridal shower for Moi! Ooh la la!
I was picturing a small gathering of the women I work with and maybe some punch and cake. But oh man, did they take this work bridal shower thing up a notch!
A plethora of wines & cheeses towards the end of the work day? Don’t mind if I do!
I began by filling my plate with a sampling of sorts.
A taste of each cheese, a few chocolate bites and nice Temperanillo to wash it down.
Everyone was so sweet for celebrating this exciting day with me.
They even brought thoughtful gifts, some were more work appropriate than others. 🙂 LOL.
And no bridal shower is complete without games!
Bring on the Bridal Pictionary!
We had to pick a wedding related phrase or word out of a hat and draw it for everyone to guess.
Some were definitely harder than others. (Like how does one draw “changing their last name” without using letters? Seriously!)
I am absolutely blessed to have so much support from all areas of my life. It’s nice to know that everyone at work is equally as excited for J. Alabama and I!
The Great Gift Opening Debate:
And because I’m running out of Wedding Wednesday’s I just had to throw in this Wedding Question for you all to chime in on.
We have started to receive packages in the mail and we have been unable to agree on what to do with them.
To OPEN? or NOT TO OPEN?….that is the question!
I’ve googled and googled for wedding etiquette but everyone has strong arguments for opening before the wedding, and for waiting.
J. Alabama is of the kind to wait until after the big day. I’m more of the kind to get this party started. 🙂
So please, married or not…let me know your thoughts on opening early or waiting until the big day!
Have a happy Wednesday friends!
