bridal shower preview!

Melissa's Bridal Shower

I just had the most amazing weekend full of love and bliss and serious bridal party fun.  On Friday, two of my best friends, Jen and Lizzy, flew in from Seattle and San Francisco to help me with wedding plans.  Somehow we managed to get a ridiculous amount accomplished over the weekend in between drinking wine, shopping, and laughing harder than any of us had in a long time.  On Saturday, my sister and mom threw me the most beautiful wedding shower ever.  I'm still in awe of the attention to detail and design that they brought to my party (check out the cake above that my sister designed and made from scratch!).  It was truly stunning and they went above and beyond to make the whole thing so "me." 

I have so many pictures and stories to share with all of you, but for now, I thought I'd post a quick preview.  Lizzy flew back home this morning (boo!) and I have to take Jen to the airport in a few hours (boo!), and my afternoon and evening are going to be spent playing catch up for the break I took from work over the last few days.  Stay tuned though; I can't wait to tell you guys all about the shower! 

Today is the LAST DAY to enter win a prize package of 5 amazing goodies worth $112 in our Inspired Handmade GIVEAWAY!  Just click here or the image above!
