My entire shower was absolutely perfect. It was so thoughtful and planned out and I just felt so loved. I did a full recap of it here!
After we did presents my bridesmaids came out with one more super special gift, this basket full of wine! They then each took turns reading their card out loud and showing everyone which wine they picked. I thought it was such a fun idea, plus they were all so creative with their alcohol choices! So many of them fit so perfectly! Then, at the end my mom joined in and read hers, which is the “Just Because” one. I’m pretty sure if I remember correctly this is when I started crying ha!
I tried to get a picture of all of the cards and the accompanying drinks but some of them didn’t come out as clearly as I would have liked, so I typed them up as well. I would have taken new pictures, I know these aren’t the best, but we were going to miss some and it was time to drink and enjoy!
If you’re a bridesmaid in an upcoming wedding I really recommend this idea, not only did it really mean a lot at the shower, but it’s a nice way to keep remembering the wedding and how special it was throughout the rest of the year!
Thank you again to everyone who made our shower, bachelor/bachelorette parties, rehearsal dinner, and wedding so special. We are still so incredibly humbled by it all and love you all SO much!!!

“He said she said it happens from time to time, sometimes after too much liquor or wine. So when arguments occur and the tempers are hot, take a second to be thankful for what you’ve got. Kiss, makeup, and drink this after your first fight, and then be sure to make up all night!”

And then he will say sorry Sue this bottle is just for me..and in 9 months you’ll be a family of three!”
“When a random spark happens to ignite, on a lazy ordinary average night. Pop open this bottle and get your drink on, with a love like yours, it couldn’t go wrong!”
