30 Days of Wedding Memories: Shower #1- My Family

My first Bridal shower was thrown by my family. Because so many of my family attend the same church, my mom and aunt's thought it would be easier to do my shower on Sunday, April 10th at 2pm at our church. They felt that everyone could just go to church, grab lunch together after, then return to the church to open gifts and eat a ton of finger foods. They also felt that more people would come because they wouldn't have to waste a Saturday getting ready and then spend the afternoon watching me open presents.  Having a ton of experience in this area, the five of them (my mom and four aunts) knew what they were talking about. We had almost close to 75 people show up that Sunday! I was showered with so many gifts. I felt truly blessed.
