My Surprise Bridal Shower

Sorry about the quality of the pictures, I didn’t get many on my own phone!

Though my Bridal Shower was back in August, and it’s now October, life has been a bit chaotic and this is the first chance I’m getting to share it with you!

If you haven’t already seen the post about my bachelorette party, you can check that out here. Being from the East Coast, and my whole family and bridal party (minus one) being back over there, I flew home to celebrate with everyone there. I did my bachelorette party and my bridal shower in the same weekend, and both were a complete surprise to me!

My sister and Matron of Honor, Julie, planned everything with the other girls and they made sure everything was a surprise. The day of the shower, we got up and got ready, but I had no idea what we were doing. My mom and sister had left the night before to get ready for everything. Two of my bridesmaids, Carolina and Toby, were put in charge of getting me to where we were going.

We went to have breakfast (aka get donuts because I LOVE THEM), and then headed to what they told me was a wine tasting adventure until we were ready to go to the shower.

I was a bit suspicious of this because I don’t really drink, so I thought, “why would they take me wine tasting?”. When we got to the vineyard, my mouth fell open at the view. It was absolutely GORGEOUS!! We were at Breaux Vineyards in Northern Virginia.

When we got there, I saw my moms car which just confirmed my suspicions haha. But what I didn’t expect was everyone that was there! I got to see a ton of my family that I haven’t seen in a long time, and some old friends I also haven’t seen in probably years. It was so, so good to catch up with them.

My mom and sister did an amazing job keeping everything a surprise, and the venue, decor, all of it was just perfect.

It’s so fun to recap now that we’re at the week of my wedding! I can’t believe it’s finally here! EEEK!!

Have a wonderful rest of your week!

  • I think I’m just gonna skip long sleeve season and go right into sweaters. Since I’m always cold, it should work out 🤷🏻‍♀️. I have a very strong love of sweaters and own more of them than anything else. I love to be warm! PS yes, that white stuff on my jeans is SNOW ❄️ WI was freezing 🥶
I’m currently writing my Amazon fall favorites post and this sweater is part of it 🥰. It can we worn off the shoulder like this, one shoulder or as a cowl neck. Talk about versatile 🙌🏻. I also get so much love on this hat, I linked it in this years version which comes in cream and pink. Shop this look at or in the app ❤️ #liketkit #danithomblog
  • Do you prefer neutrals or lots of color? I obviously love neutrals but pops of color/pattern are my favorite way to spice things up. I’m a big fan of scarves, and this one is a great way to participate in the leopard print trend without it being too much for me. Accessories are my favorite way to change up my wardrobe! 
This scarf and belt are both @amazon wins 🙌🏻 Shop this look at or in the app ❤️ #liketkit #danithomblog
  • An important thing to understand about having a capsule wardrobe is that it can be whatever you want it to be. So many people think they have to stick to the same 10 things and rotate through them. If that works for you, great! But it’s also ok to have more variety if that’s what makes you happy. I used to try to limit myself to a number, but I wasn’t happy with my closet. So I adjusted it to what I felt comfortable with and it’s been great ever since! Don’t force yourself into a box just for the sake of it. 
This cardi is such a pretty color and only $25! Shop this look at or in the app ❤️ #liketkit #danithomblog

  • Cuddled up today in this cozy $30 OTS sweater 😍 It’s currently snowing here in Wisconsin so I’m curious how the wedding we’re here for will go later! Glad I brought my coat 😂. We’re right on the water BUT since it’s only 32 degrees right now, we’re just admiring from inside 🥶. How’s your Saturday?? Shop this look at or in the app! #liketkit #danithomblog
