Wedding Shower Road Trip

Things are getting serious. This weekend is our first wedding shower and it is far from the busy streets of NYC. It is at Mr. AC's parent's home in West Virginia. We are both really excited about the shower. It will be the first time (in 6 years) that my mom and sister have been to their home. It is the first time my sister will meet Mr. AC's parents.

I have had a lot of stress the last few weeks. The wedding is really causing stress in my life but I have to say I am really looking forward to this shower. Being together with your family, your future in-laws, friends and family is what weddings are all about. And I think at less than 2 and a half months out this is an important reminder for me.

Since all of my bridesmaids including my sister live in North Carolina, I haven't seen my BM dresses in person. I have asked my sister to bring her dress to the shower. I will also get to see Mr. AC's moms dress and show everyone there some of the things I have started to make including my invitations (which i will share with the hive soon), fun door hangers and other cool projects!

Were you excited about your wedding shower? Did you use it as an opportunity to take a break from wedding planning?
