WW: Our Jack & Jill Shower and the REAL reason Dom asked me out.

I feel like I will need a million and one posts to talk about how much fun our shower was, but I'm going to try and fit it all into one!  Dom's neighbors and close family friends threw us a couples shower at their house on Lake George for Dom's side of the family last weekend.  Due to Dom's medical school schedule, all parties involving him are going to be this year.  I love that I feel like I get to celebrate my wedding for a whole year!  Per usual, I'll let pictures do a lot of the talking.




 Party Nana!

 During the opening gifts portion (aka the most awkward!) we were surprised with 2 chairs and a chalkboard each.  Then, Jody (Dom's neighbor and our host) read us questions.  If we both answered the same way we got to open a present!  The game was so hilarious and it was a great way to get everyone together and laughing!  Some questions were cute, while others were downright funny (for example, "which of Robin's friends looks best in a bikini?!" We didn't stop laughing the entire time! 

 "Where is the strangest place you've shared a kiss?"
Can you tell I didn't remember what he was talking about?!
 Most annoying habit!
 We got some amazing gifts!

 "What cereal best describes your family's first impression of Dom?" 
FRUIT LOOP! ;)



Having never been to a Jack & Jill couples shower, I wasn't sure what to expect.  Usually when you think bridal shower you think girly fluffiness, but now I can't see doing the shower with my side of the family any differently! We had an absolute blast.  It was an incredibly beautiful day on Lake George, and we all sat outside, ate, and drank our hearts out all day long!  It was like one big family party that just happened to be completely pink and green. :)  

Can we just talk about these favors?! My bridesmaid Lauren (who happens to be Dom's brother Anthony's girlfriend) made these stickers and I am in LOVE.  Dom's mom, Lauren, and her sister also spent the morning of the party turning Jody's lake house into a pink and green heaven! They went so above and beyond!

Another reason I loved it was all my bridesmaids' boyfriends got to know each other really well.  We had some serious bromances going on!  Now they're already looking forward to hanging out during the wedding while their girlfriends are taking pictures all day long.  I think it is going to be one awesome wedding!

Now, my favorite moment from the day!
Question: Dom, what about Robin first caught your attention?
...he thought I was Italian.

  11. Awesome shower! Love the details and the pink and green colors. I see that you guys let go of a floating lantern. We did that at our wedding. I just love watching the lanterns float away. Did your family and friends let go of lanterns too, or is it just the two of you?

  12. What a cute idea! It looks like you guys had a blast AND you had a fun and not-so-awkward way of opening gifts. That's something that I am sort of dreading because I hate when people are staring at you waiting to see your reaction to their gifts!
