Today, my aunts threw me a bridal shower. It was a lot of fun and I got a lot of good stuff! In honor of my Grandma Wittman, who couldn't be there, we had grandma's spaghetti with my mom's "Moonlight" salad and rolls. Beth took some photos that I'll share later, but for now, I wanted to share pics I took last night of their decorations!
In a lot of ways, our wedding will be non-traditional, but there are some traditional aspects I'd love to keep as well. I know some people forego the bouquet toss, but it's always been a fun part of weddings for me, ever since I was a little girl - even if sometimes I was too shy to go out and try to catch it.
The problem is, I want to keep my bouquet forever and ever. It's not surprising - I have a hard time letting things go on a general basis; especially things this sentimental. The good news is I've found a solution - a second toss bouquet - and I decided to have a little fun with it.
I don't have MY bouquet at the house - it's at my parents' with my dress and undergarments. I do, however, have these beautiful bridesmaids bouquets my momma made. They're similar to mine, but without the white flowers :)
I LOVE my fall colors scheme, don't get me wrong - but there's a part of me that loves black and orange and fake blood and all that as well. Once I decided I needed a second toss bouquet, I decided to Halloween it up - orange, white and black style. It's only being used for the toss, so I figured anything goes :)
