~Our Renewals~ Hey my WBC family! I've been a little hush- hush lately. Our 14th wedding ann...
So I have gotten a lot of you ladies asking questions about my bridal shower, so I'll lay it all out here and if you have any more questions, I'll be glad to update my post :)
Starting off with,
My sister who is also my MOH, designed my cake. The wedding dress is not my dress as you have all seen, my dress has a lot of detail lol, but the three dresses around it is the exact sample dress of my bridesmaid and MOH dresses. She did an amazing job! The cake lady is a family friend who has her own cake buisness in her home. So if any Toronto ladies would like her info, I would be glad to send it to you :)
the reception hall is Oasis Convention Center;
It is a beauitful hall, food is really really good! The only down fall about this was the manager was very rude and made the planning process very unmemorable. But the other workers there were very nice. Another down fall was, there was one waitress who kept coming in and grabbing some sweets from my sweet table which we found very unprofessional. But over all, it was a beautiful setting.
the games that we played were,
Table GamesBridal Bingo (you can find online), Wedding Scramble, How Well Do You Know The Bride & Groom & we did a lot of raffles.
Enterence GamesGuess the Brides Age (we took 6 pictures of myself in the ages between 1-12 and put it on a bristol board, when the guests entered, they had to fill the papers out), Weigh in Your Purse (The woman with the heaviest purse would win -you write the womans name and the weight), The Price is Right (we bought a basket and filled it with objects for the house, cooking and what not, and the women had to guess the price of each, total it up and add the taxes. The woman with the exact or closest amount wins the basket.), we also did Guess How Many Bubble Gums Are In The Jar (who ever got the exact or closest amount won the jar of gum balls.
To win the centerpiece, each lady would stand up and pass a ballon around, and when the music would go off, the lady holding the ballon would sit down. But the twist was, when it came down to the last two, normaly the lady who had the ballon last would win, but we did, the last person to sit down won. ha!
My mom and sister bought little brown pockets with a pink bow and put in pink mints inside. Those were one for each person and were set on the table by everyones plate.
So bomboniere's are a more European tradition. These are given to each family (not each person) and it is a bigger gift then the favors.
My bomboniere's were an Italian collection butter holders:
And the lady who did these wrapped them up so nicely;
Those were the basic questions you all had asked, but if you have any more questions, please let me know and I'd love to answer them!
Ps. I have a lot more to update you on.. I've been a busy bee these past few days :)
