Edward and I spent this past weekend in San Diego with friends and family celebrating our first wedding shower! A good friend of the family threw a beautiful party for us in her backyard. It was a couples shower so it was so much fun having guys and girls all there to celebrate with us. It was a brunch so she cooked an assortment of delicious quiches and other yummy brunch must haves. And, of course, there were mimosas and bloody Mary’s flowing.
Of course, in true Kelsey fashion, I had been thinking about what I was going to wear for months! I knew I wanted to wear white… because why not? Some people say wearing white to your wedding shower and bridal events is cheesy but I say, “what the hell?!” I have waited almost 30 years to get married to the man of my dreams and become a bride and if all goes well I will never be a bride again. JK! This will be my only time as a bride so I might as well milk it for all its worth! And it is just so fun!
I found the perfect white dress for this wedding shower at my all time favorite store, of course, Nordstrom. It is the perfect bridal dress because it is classic enough that it will stand the test of time (I will be looking at the photos for quite a while) yet it also has a couple subtle trends that I am loving. The wrap style is very in style right now and just so stinking flattering. I love it! Also, the ruffles make it feminine and cute and they are a nod to all the ruffles we are seeing this summer!
With a white dress and nude heels I knew I wanted a pop of color and I am loving the statement earring trend right now so I was immediately on the hunt for a teal (for some reason I really wanted that color) statement earring. I found these on sale at Macy’s and fell in love. They add the perfect amount of color with out taking away from the bridal white! (Hurry they are still on sale!)
We had so much fun at our wedding shower and we look forward to the next few months of such special times and special events! Thank you so much to all the wonderful family and friends who contributed to throwing us this amazing and beautiful event. You know who you are! It was so special for Edward and I. The wedding will be here before we know it! And I can’t wait to marry my adorable fiancé!
