I said YES to the dress(es) ♡

 


I had so much fun trying on wedding dresses I felt so beautiful I pretty much loved all of them. I wish I could wear them all🤍But for the ones I did get I got all the feels and knew my boy would love it.

💍👰🏻🤍Also felt so lucky my family flew out to go wedding dress shopping🙏🏼. I had been looking forward to finding my dream dress and totally had ideas of what I wanted but my advice is to try on all styles of dresses since what you save on pinterest or screen shot might not be or fit the way you thought.

To my surprise I loved two very different styles one I thought I wouldn't even try one but once on I loved it. Having time to make the dress what you wish is so important too. So make sure you have lead time ahead of your bridals if you take them or of your date. You want to have time if something goes wrong or a fix the wedding dress isn't what you thought it would be.

But of all enjoy this time, I am happy I did. I loved every minute of it.

Future MRS. Ogilvie: Florida Bridal Shower ♡

 


Future MRS. Ogilvie...has a nice ring to it #ogilvieeverafter

I love being a daughter, sister, friend and aunty & now I am so excited to add Mrs. to all the things I love to be.🤍 Thanks to my mom and sisters for hosting my 3rd shower and everyone who made it special for attending. 
The theme of course was Future Mrs. and I loved it. They bought me a personalized pageant sash and I totally loved wearing. I have to my surprise loved all the "cheesy" bride swag and wearing white to all my parties it's been the sweetest experiences. 
The food was so great since it was hosted an Italian restaurant plus fruit tarts and my family's "traditional"cake is the white chocolate raspberry bundt cake..yum!
We also had super fun games, questions that Marked answered that I needed to guess (that melted my heart because he remembers all the little details), a drawing game to guess my dress, the guest guessing what "I rather" (I have become so Utah hahah my answers shocked people...) fun date night/and advice was given too. 
And because I am from Florida this Bridal Shower was so special because the ladies who went wept with me through the years over my heartaches and to finally have found my dream man now they have even more really felt the pure happiness and joy with me. 
You never know what the future holds but one thing that is for sure is to welcome and love people along the way that make everyday sweeter. 
I feel lucky I get to share this joy and bliss of marriage with all my people.

Bride To Be: Utah Friends Bridal Shower ♡

 


I have lived in Utah since 2015 so pretty much 6 years (I just moved again). Yes, I learned to not just consider it my home but loved all the growth and people that made it special. And now during my wedding celebrations season it was extra special to gather with ladies from my different points of my timeline in Utah. 

I feel lucky and grateful to my bestie and her mom who hosted this second shower in Utah. They are like my family and I know were placed in my life with purpose. 

Now on to the party. The decorations were all so beautiful and pink and the food so yummy and pretty.Oh and we can;t forget the perfect peonies bouquet, which lasted in my kitchen for days--they truly were the most stunning flowers.  

We had a great time with the games that were hosted by another one of my sweet friends. And of course the opening of the gifts were a whole another experience because of the more personal wedding night ones. 

Overall, I truly felt so loved and so happy to just remember all the moments in Utah and all the experiences that made me grow and opened my heart to being happy with the present. Because in the end of the day God knows best and knows the whole picture.

Shabby Chic Lemonade Bar: Bridal Shower ♡

 


Feel so blessed and lucky to have the family and friends that I have already and so excited for the new family I gain through Mark. They have treated me so kindly and have made me feel included since day one. They even hosted a super cute Shabby Chic Lemonade Bar Bridal Shower for me. 

This Bridal Shower was the first to kick-off all the wedding celebrations. I got to get to know more of the ladies in Mark's family who I hadn't yet shared time with and also with those who I had already built relationships with. 

The food was so great it was sweet bacon and sugared biscuits and other yummy breakfast type goodies. The DIY lemonade bar was super cute. The mason jars gave it the extra touch for the shabby chic look. 

What was used for the Lemonade Bar:

  • flavored syrups
  • lemonade
  • ice
  • mason jars or clear plastic cups
  • glass pitchers 
  • cute straws
  • fresh seasonal fruit
  • lemon slices
  • Mint leaves

3 pumps blueberry flavoring

  P.S. Lastly something fun I decided to do as a bride-to-be is to try and wear white for all my upcoming celebrations (I mention this in the video below, here is the back-story). I first wore white not on purpose since my proposal was a total surprise but at the beach. And then I wore a white sequin dress for our Engagement photos and now I wore this cute collared Urban Outfitters and Ralph LAUREN outfit for this first bridal shower. I'll write a blog post to follow on all my "white looks" (;
