Wedding Wednesday: The “Let’s Talk About How Perfect My Bouquet Was” Edition

A Future of Domestic Bliss! – Bridal Shower

The shower tomorrow is being hosted by my bridesmaids [read: my mother, but that wouldn’t be good bridal etiquette] and is 50s housewife themed! The invitations are adorable.  So excited!
