My Pretty Pink & Gold Bridal Shower


I’m way overdue on sharing this, but here it is, finally!! A quick glimpse of my bridal shower!

Without a doubt, one of the best days of my life.

I was completely overwhelmed by the love and support of our family and friends, and I couldn’t have asked for anything better.

We rented out a party room at Town Kitchen & Bar, one of my favorite brunch spots in Miami.

I got there a little too early, so Chelsea, one of my very best friends who I’ve known since I was born, met me at the bar for my first of many mimosas that day!


The decor couldn’t have been prettier. Pink and gold everything!


Gold kisses at the candy bar. Along with pretty much everything else fattening/delicious that you could have thought of.


The most beautiful cake pops I’ve ever seen…


Rice Krispies treats, mini cupcakes, and chocolate dipped marshmallows?! LOL my people really know me!


And I mean, come on! How freaking gorgeous are these macaroons?! GLITTER MACAROONS!!!


The hand-made body scrub favors my sister and my mom made were a huge hit too!


So yea, the decor was just amazing, and I had the best afternoon catching up with my family and my very best friends. Like Angie, who I’ve known since 7th grade!


And my Phi Mu sorority sisters who bring so much joy to my life! They’ve been there for me through all my dating failures, and now they’ll be at my wedding! Crazy how life happens.


My mom and my sister put so much effort into making this day fabulous, and it really really was.

So this is my obligatory sister/maid of honor picture!


And this is the three of us…my sister and my mom.


And yes, Joe finally showed up at the end since I pretty much forced him to!


But he loves me, so when I ask him to do stuff like show up and look pretty at places, he listens.


So that’s it, guys! An amazing day surrounded by a ton of people that we love. I can’t believe that we’ll be married in less than three months! Holy cow. I’d say that I never would have imagined in a million years that I’d be marrying this guy right here, but that’d be a flat out lie.

Because I knew. I knew on our very first date. I knew that this guy was different, and I knew that a lifetime of happiness was waiting for us.

So corny, I know. But too bad! It’s true!

I love this guy, and there’s really not much else I can say about it.

    I love the pink and gold!!! I want something similar for my bachelorette weekend. Lots of great and cute ideas here!! I will probably do a “Mexican themed” bridal shower. I haven’t really thought about it yet (since I am YET to be engaged…fingers crossed for within the next year). Thanks for posting and sharing!

    You have so much interesting things to say about life outlook, and I can’t be anymore happier to have stumbled upon this blog. I’ve been doing a lot of soul searching lately, and anything helps at this point, but enough about that.

    Your decor looks so sophisticated, but they look quite easy to do. I love that! The colors, glitter, bows, desserts all go together so perfectly!

    Everything is so pretty and so sweet! And those cake pops are almost too pretty to eat (almost)! I’ve never had a macaroon (I know, I’m living under a rock right?!?). They’re just not common where I live. The body scrub is such a neat favor. What was the scent? So pretty! Great pictures. You, your sister and mom are gorgeous!!
