My Totally Trendy Turquoise Bridal Shower

Turquoise CompassTurquoise CompassOn the day of my bridal shower, I was reminded how much I am loved. I have the best friends and family in the world. Everyone came together to create the best totally trendy turquoise bridal shower a girl could ever ask for! The surprises the girls had in store for me blew my expectations out of the salty sea so to speak. It was a bride’s dream come true and a very special day that I will always remember. It’s moments like this when you realize who you can count on. I’ve been so blessed with people who have grown to know me inside and out and to know just what to do without even asking. It’s incredible to know that the friends and family who are celebrating my upcoming wedding with me seem to know me better than I know myself. I’m blessed to have been given such wonderful people who surround and support me during this most joyous occasion. For this, I am forever grateful.Turquoise Compass

I shouldn’t be surprised that my bridal shower turned out amazing and without a hitch, yet I was still left speechless at all they had done. The bridal shower planning crew went above and beyond my wildest expectations. The girls thought of everything and nothing was spared.Turquoise CompassTurquoise Compass

  1. Oh Jessica, this is the best! Love all the great ideas. I am sharing this with my daughter in law whose sister is getting married later this summer. I especially loved the cookies and the he said she said bubbles.

    I’ll continue to look forward to your stories about the wedding and preparations. In the meantime, have a great summer now that school is done!

      • Enjoy each and every day up to W day!

        I am moving to BC tomorrow. Long drive but it will be worth it. You may have noticed that I retired last week. Yeah me!

      • Wow, making the big move! Better weather out there! I’m spending some time in the Northern region currently and then back to the east coast to enjoy the rest of summer before our big day in the Dominican.
        Congratulations on retirement life!
