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.

Due to the fact that we’re getting married on a tropical island, we won’t be doing a honeymoon right away. Technically, our dream turquoise wedding is a wedding and honeymoon in one; however, we’d still like to go on a honeymoon at some point after the wedding.

When we first started looking at the variety of destinations in the Caribbean we were overwhelmed. They are so many places to choose from! We finally narrowed it down to a few and started weighing all of our options to see which one seemed the most practical and the best fit for us. After looking at what feels like every venue on each island, we finally agreed on the Dominican Republic for our turquoise inspired beach wedding. Continue reading
