Steel Magnolias Themed Bridal Shower

Thursday, July 30, 2020

This past weekend we held my Steel Magnolias themed bridal shower in Emerald Isle, NC. For those that haven't seen it, it's a classic southern bridal movie with stars like Julia Roberts, Dolly Parton, and Sally Fields. Guests were asked to wear their favorite shade of "blush and bashful" which are Shelby's (Julia Roberts) wedding colors in the movie. In her words "I have chosen two shades of pink. One is much deeper than the other".

Emerald Isle Bachelorette Party


Just over a month ago I spend a few days with my very best friends in Emerald Isle, North Carolina for my bachelorette party. Our original plan was to be in Washington, DC. Andrew and I have planned to only be in DC for one year before we move to New York for his work. Knowing this, my bridesmaids and friends decided to explore my new city during the limited time I called it home. However, due to coronavirus, we were unable to go through with this plan and in the weeks leading up to the trip, decided to reroute our plans to Emerald Isle. I grew up spending each summer there and my mother moved there shortly after I left for college, so it felt like the perfect place for Plan B!
