Kacie’s Bridal Shower is the perfect example of how to throw an awesome party by taking advantage of the resources/skills of family and friends. If, for example, your Mom has a beautiful home, your brother is dabbling in the BBQ catering business, your MOH is famous for her mac-n-cheese and you have another bridesmaid who has been dying to try her hand at Mason Jar centerpieces (gee, who could that be?), then why bother looking any further?
With the mothers of the bride and groom and all the bridesmaids eager to pitch in, we held a fabulous afternoon BBQ Bridal Luncheon at the home of Kacie’s parents. The MVP awards go to Kacie’s MOH for her killer organization skills and ability to throw down in the kitchen, and Kacie’s brother who BUILT (yes, BUILT) the most impressive grill I’ve ever seen in real life and who just started bottling and selling his own BBQ sauce. Dude knows how to cook up some chicken!

With everyone having a role, the day went off without a hitch…
Georgetown Cupcakes baby 🙂
For games, we played “Wedding Themed” Family Feud while we waited for the food to come off the grill, and after dessert we broke into teams for the oldie-but-goodie toilet paper wedding dress contest. Each team had 4 minutes to create their look, and then the brides faced off in a fashion show…
I swear there’s always one bride who ends up with no skirt, or her dress just disintegrates as she walks down the runway 😉
As the Beatles put it, “All You Need is Love.” Kacie’s shower is proof of that, and how an outpouring of love and happiness for the bride can manifest itself in a truly memorable day for all.
