Last week, I was able to fly to Pennsylvania to do some last-minute wedding planning. The time there was a complete whirlwind, but the highlight was absolutely my baseball-themed bridal shower!
My bridesmaids drove from 2-6 hours to meet in my hometown and throw me a perfect party. My Maid of Honor and I are both huge baseball fans, so she took this as an opportunity to make everything baseball themed.
When I walked in, I was blown away by what an amazing job they did. The plates were baseball diamonds, the place mats were cut put pieces of turf, baseball signs and t shirts hung on the wall and transformed this plain church room into a baseball fan’s dream.
Since I have been planning long-distance, I wasn’t expecting to have a bridal shower. My amazing Maid of Honor, however, said she was planning one for me whether I attended or not. I am so glad that she convinced me that it was worthwhile to fly home!
Most of my friends and family were able to make it, so it was wonderful to see everyone and hear how excited they were for the wedding.
We played a few games, but since the bridesmaids were kind, they limited my involvement to trying to answer a series of questions and trying to match Kyle’s answers. Fitting the baseball theme, I had to chew a wad of Big League Chew every time I got an answer wrong.
My bridal shower was so much fun and I am so grateful that I was able to have one.
(Thank you Steph, Sarah, and Brenna!)
