I have two bridal showers that are being thrown for me. The first will be this weekend down in Raleigh, NC at my MOH's house. She and two of my other bridesmaids are hosting this first shower which is primarily for my college friends that are invited to the wedding. We decided to have a small shower in NC since that's where most of my college friends live and because it would be easier for my MOH to plan. Then Saturday night after the shower we will be going out for my bachelorette party!! I have no idea what's been planned for either and I like it that way.

The only thing I do know/have requested is no penis paraphernalia. To be honest I've never understood the whole point of weaing a penis necklace while drinking out of a penis straw for your bachelorette party. I guess back in the day when most chicks were still virgins on their wedding nights I could see how this would be "scandalous" but nowadays?? I hate to burst anyone's bubble but I have seen a penis before. Shocking I know! I have also requested no veils or other over the top accessories. Frankly I feel a bit too old for all that stuff.

My second shower will be at the end of April and is being hosted by my mother. The guest list for the second shower is made up of the female relatives and friends of the family. I didn't really want one big shower since I know most people hate sitting for two hours watching someone open presents, plus it's more expensive for the host when you have a larger guest list.

Now for the fun stuff. I bought two new dresses this past weekend for each of the showers. I'm sure I could have dug something out of my closet but these are special occasions and deserve a new outfit damnit!

The first dress that I bought for this weekend I purchased at Papaya. It's a light, summery white dress which I also plan to bring on the honeymoon. I know it's probably cliche to wear white for my bridal shower but I plan to be a bride only once in my life so may as well take advantage of it right?

I'm still trying to figure out shoes and accessories.

The dress I bought for my family shower in April is from my home away from home otherwise known as Target.

I wanted something a bit dressier for the second one. I think I may add a big belt around the waist but I have some time to get those accessories. On another note, why do both models have the top half of their head cut off?? Do they have really hideous foreheads or something?

As for what I'm wearing for the bachelorette party festivities I'm still trying to figure that out. Probably my skinny jeans, sexy heels and some kind of dressy top but I'm still working that out.

You're too funny! I had a no penis clause for my bachelorette party too! My MOH broke the rules with some penis cookies..but it was in the privacy of her own home, and they were kind of funny.

I had the penis straws! Not by choice though... and hell.. I was young soooo can I be forgiven for that?

And I love both dresses! I was actually eyeing the red one at target the other day, but in black for when I go to NYC. =)

Ok, so my sister covered me in penis paraphenelia at my bachelorette last weekend! And made me drink out of the penis straw. I don't get it either but at least we didn't go out in public with all that crap. It was at a BM's house.

Exciting that you have your showers coming up. Fun stuff!

I really like the white dress; I think it's cute, and rock the white all you can, girl! The red dress is really classy looking -- perfect for a family shower. Have so much fun this weekend! I have to admit, we didn't make my BFF wear any penises for her bachelorette, but she did have a tiara and "veil" and a "bride" tank top. All in good fun!

Two showers! Lucky thing. Love the dresses.

I've never understood the penis thing either. They're not that pretty to begin with! Ha

You are going to be SO adorable!

LOL you make me laugh.

Sometimes, I crop out the top half cause of a crazed look I have in my eyes, LOL. Or sometimes I cut the head off altogether if I feel like I've plastered my face on my blog far too many times and y'all could use a break. But then again, I'm not a model and would probably be a lil insulted if I was hired for a shoot but then my head was cut off, LOL.
