This past weekend was amazing! Sorry you didn’t get to hear about it in Kelly’s post this week. Hopefully next week she’ll post about it….unless another bottle of wine pops! How crazy is that?!?!

I did want to fill our readers in on a few tips for enjoying a bachelorette and shower weekend.

Crate and Barrel and REI exploding!

Crate and Barrel and REI exploding!

  1. Enjoy every little moment!

  2. Relax and don’t freak out if you don’t know everything…your bridesmaids will eventually tell you.

  3. If you have a lot of out of town friends/family consider holding one weekend for your bachelorette party and wedding shower.

  4. Have a go-between to help diffuse potentially tense situations. My Matron of Honor was a huge help handling delicate situations with my family during the wedding shower. I don’t know what I would have done without her!

  5. Be sure someone is writing down all gift information for the bachelorette and for the wedding shower.

  6. If you have a crafty friend, have them help to combine all of your gift ribbons for your rehearsal bouquet.

  7. Bring a few guys to the wedding shower…they’ll come in handy helping pack up all the gifts. I brought my dad, Matt’s dad and of course Matt 🙂

  8. Depending how OCD you are, try to get things organized as soon as you get home. Matt and I unpacked all of our gifts, washed them and put the majority of the items away in one night. We removed everything that we weren’t going to keep and started piles for Good Will or for our friends who called dibs on a few items.

  9. Arm yourself with thank you cards ready! My goal is to write at least six a night. I try to do a few more if time allows.

  10. Get excited, after the bachelorette and wedding shower the next big event is the wedding!
