I had two bridal showers to go to this weekend. I went to one today for a dear friends' daughter. I have known Jennifer most of her life and she is just a precious young lady. She is going to be a lovely bride and I can't wait until her wedding on September 17th! The very next weekend my sweet niece Brittany is getting married. I can't believe she is getting married!! It seems like yesterday she was born on a stormy Thanksgiving day. Time has just gone by so fast. Brittany is going to have a beautiful wedding and I am privileged to help with the preparations. She is having an outdoor wedding in Charlotte. This weekend was the first of two showers she is having. This one was a couple shower that was a great big bbq with lots of family and friends. Next weekend we are having a more traditional shower at church for the bride. We southern women just love a shower! At least I do! I love to throw them and I love to attend them. Young brides are so excited and thrilled with all the gifts and attention. When I was giving my daughter, Erica, her showers she was just so excited. It was such a pleasure for em to watch her enthusiasm. Brittany is like my own child so i am just as excited for her. It makes me want to start helping Megan plan her wedding and showers!! Each of my girls are so different and I am sure Megan's will be so fun in a much different way. Where Erica is more formal and Brittany is very contemporary, my Megan is casual and laid back about these type events. I am not sure what she has thought about in any detail but I am sure she will go with a simple elegance...just like her. Here are a few pictures from Brittany and Aarons' shower.
