NJ Bridal Shower Recap {Part 1}

A couple weekends ago, I had my bridal shower in NJ. Yes, I am THAT lucky... I had two showers (Click here for my CA Bridal Shower Recap) and it's taken me a moment to have the time to write this post b/c they ain't lying when they say the last month before the wedding is a whirlwind.  I didn't want to just write this post without really being able to set aside some time - so here I am... a few weeks behind, but still feeling like the luckiest girl in the world.  :)

My NJ shower was mainly my east coast bridal party and my NJ family and friends - mostly friends whom I've become close with b/c of FH, but i still count them "MY" family and friends. My FSIL picked a wonderful little place called Ponte Vecchio in NJ, and my MOH/Cousin and BM both came in from NYC to help out and be a part of this special day.

I didn't have a chance to take as many pics as I would have liked since I was "the guest of honor" but luckily my cousin and a friend of mine, took my camera and made sure to capture the important moments... So here are a few pictures from the event:

Dining: (The food was delicious!)

then, this cute little gal came over to me to let me know it was time to open gifts... lol:

Gift opening:
 My Helpers

I loved reading the cards! they were so sweet!
and then my helpers realized - the paper tissue that wrapped the gifts were more fun to play with then helping me...  so they became the entertainment that helped the gift unwrapping be a lot more fun than it would have been...

Stay tuned for pics of my Cake, my ribbon bouquet and all my guests !!!!


  1. awww, your little helpers are to die for. So adorable!

  2. So super fun! I am sure my little flower girl will also be my 'gift helper' at my own shower in 2 weeks! OMG, your wedding date is so close! I may just have to come crash it and try to sneak a peek of you in person since I used to live right near where you are getting married and am still only about 15 to 20 mins from there :)

  3. You're getting so close!!! So excited for you!!!!!!!

  4. Looks like you had a fab time! I love bridal showers - so much fun to get the girls together.
