This weekend was not only my first wedding shower for myself but the first wedding shower that I have ever attended! Surprising right?! I have been in a lot of weddings but living far from North Carolina I have never been able to attend the showers.

(Mr. AC's mom arranged for our name to be on the church marquee, it was SOOO cool seeing our name up there)

I must admit that I was a little nervous. I am not a very "girly girl" and I don't really like being the "center of attention" but I embraced it and it was super fun!

Mr. Apple Cider's mom threw the shower and it had a "love birds" theme...much like our invitations. The shower was in Mr. AC's hometown in West Virginia and my mom and sister drove up from North Carolina. It was so wonderful having them there. My sister stepped right into the MOH role and I was so relieved to have her there.

The shower was adorable. There was cute balloons and birds everywhere. We played fun games, ate yummy food and had some delicious cake...with our picture on it!

We opened lots of presents and were so excited to get fun things for our new apartment.

It was really special to be surrounded by women that saw Mr. AC grow up. The love for him and his family was evident. I was glad that my mom and sister could see that.

  1. Hey girl! The shower looks so fun, and I love how you "matched" the party accessories with your blue and green and black ;) You and Meg are beautiful. Wanted to tell you my friend (and fellow Delilah) is also planning a fall wedding in the North Carolina mountains- check out her blog at

  2. You and Alan look amazing! And tell Meg it's not fair for the MOH to be so pretty! Counting down the days excited.
