This is the only shower that I was completely aware of. 😛 I think hiding and the concept of surprise is not something my Mom considered. 😛 About 40 days before our wedding, my mom kept asking me of my weekend schedule because she wanted to plan my bridal shower. She was that blunt!! Haha.
Unfortunately, one of the unexpected things happened 15 days before my wedding. My Mom got Shingles! Shingles!!To be honest, I was worried for myself. Have I contracted Chickenpox when I was a kid? No. That’s exactly why I was extra cautious! I’ve seen my classmates before who had the illness, even my siblings. Thus, I know how the battle scars can never be removed and I was only days away!!
My Mom was very understanding. She was thinking of the wedding too but the bridal shower was near and we can’t ignore her sudden shingles. I didn’t want to continue this because I know my mom won’t be there and I know that she was the one who planned everything together with my sister. But she really wanted to throw me a send-off dinner.
I’m in my staple wardrobe because obviously, it was no surprise. 😛 It was held in a small function room of Mama Lou’s in BF Paranaque. ❤ The room can hold around 15 – 20 people. They still had a table for my gifts and a table for the props and all.
The guests were a bit older than the usual guests during a bridal shower. Thus, the games that my sister planned were games that can be done on paper and while seated. There were: What’s in your bag? How well do you know the Groom and Bride? Guess who, Bride or Groom? Word Search, Bridal Bingo Card. My Mom and Sister also prepared some prizes. ❤ ❤
I absolutely had the best dinner. ❤ Everything that they served was delicious! and mind you, this is the first ever cheesecake that resonated to me. RESONATED? Hahahaha. My husband is a huge fan of cheesecakes and we would normally order separate cakes but man! The Mango Cheesecake of Mama Lou’s is the bomb!
After several games and our sumptuous dinner, time to unwrap what they prepared for me. ❤
