I hope all is going well with new motherhood :) My bridesmaids threw me the most amazing shower this weekend and they put so much hard work and thought into it, that I just had to share.
I work for On Location Tours, the company that runs the Sex and the City Hotspots Tour (www.screentours.com). The girls decided to bring a little NYC to York with my Sex and the City themed bridal shower.
I have included some info below and have attached some pics (photo credits: Katlyn Wolfgang). I was just so appreciative of all the work my friends and family did, so I wanted to show the world all their hard work!
The event began with a mystery text instructing the bride to go home and look in her closet. There she found a little black dress, hot pink accessories, and instructions to await her transportation that would arrive at 5:30pm.
At 5:30pm a taxi cab (how New York!) pulled up to take her to the shower destination, where she was met by her father, her future father-in-law, her brother, and her bridesmaids' fathers, who had been serving as valets for the evening.
From there, she was welcomed to the SATC-themed bash by her bridesmaids and their accommodating hubbies, who dressed in tuxedo tees and served food and drink at the party.
No SATC-related detail was left out - Guests' stiletto'ed invite asked them to don the apparel of their favorite SATC character and a "costume contest" was later held, with the bride acting as judge.
Upon arrival, guests were instructed to select name tags indicating which SATC-character they most identified with: Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda
Hot pink and black were, of course, the colors of the evening. Flirtinis and cosmopolitans were the signature cocktails, served in hot pink martini glasses.
Table centerpieces were comprised of black feathers, hot pink hydrangeas, and "diamonds," and a pink-and-black New York City skyline cake was baked using the Magnolia Bakery recipe and was adorned with a Manolo Blahnik and pearl necklace
Throughout the evening the Sex & the City Movie soundtrack was played in the background, and as prizes for the night's various games guests received copies of the Sex & the City Movie DVD.
The bride received a SATC-themed gift from her bridesmaids, which included a gift bag for each character... each filled with character-appropriate lingerie (think conservative and classy for Charlotte; leopard print for Samantha)
Floating candles in the pool provided the perfect ambience for a perfect evening filled with fashion and fun.
It sounds like your shower was absolutely fabulous, Meagan - what amazing friends and family you have! Thank you so much for sharing this with us, and congratulations on your upcoming marriage!
