What's your bridal shower taste?

Happy sunny Monday!

I hope everyone had as great a weekend as I did. Saturday I had a lovely day at Elmwood Spa thanks to my dear friend Kiira and her family. Back in February Kiira's sister was married and Lipstik Events helped out with the day of tasks. As a thank you I received a gift certificate to Elmwood. It was such a lovely mental health day, I strongly suggest taking mental health days! Saturday night Michael and two of our friends, Joe and Sarah, had a delicious dinner at a fabulous new restaurant in Stouffville, Fishbone Bistro. The food and service were equally amazing, I highly recommend this restaurant! Yesterday, I was at the first of many bridal showers this wedding season, which has given me the inspiration for today's post... What's Your Bridal Shower Taste?

I'm getting married on December 10th and have recently started thinking about my bridal showers (yes, I said showers). The shower I went to yesterday was in a banquet hall in Mississauga and there were about 100 ladies present.  It was a lovely shower which now has me thinking about my bridal showers and what I'm hoping for.  I have been told that two of my aunts are throwing me a shower as is Michael's mother!

My initial thoughts are these: Intimate, fun, girlie, bright, enjoyable!

I'd love to hear what you did for your bridal shower or what you'd like for your own shower and what games you like or don't like.

Enjoy the Party,

Nicole :)


  1. Hey Nicole,

    I had mine at Al Dente in Pickering and had about 30-40 ladies. It was nice and intimate. Food is very tasty there. We played games such as guess the amount of jelly beans in the jar, bridal bingo and just had raffle tickets to win prizes. The ladies had fun....especially with the bingo. The shower only ran for about 3 hours which was plenty of time.

  2. Sounds like a fab weekend Nicole! And I must try out that new restaurant in Stouffville!

    As for bridal showers, I went with the English tea party theme for mine. I didn't really have much of a say, but it turned out wonderfully! I can't wait until I get to plan someone else's shower (eg. Caitie's), so that I can put together the theme...and you better believe I have already planned it...haha. Purple and gold and very glam!

  3. Purple and Gold, Shan?? REALLY? I'm a bit scared...

    I like more of the romantic / whimsical look... keep that in mind Shannon!

  4. Thanks for all the comments ladies! Alexis, I never guess close at the jellybean game, maybe one day I will.
    Shannon & Caitie, whatever you decide will be fabulous. I love the English Tea Party theme, very elegant and lovely.
