What is a bridal shower?
A bridal shower is a pre-wedding celebration in honor of the bride that traditionally is an opportunity for guests to give her gifts to help set up her new home.
Who hosts and pays for the bridal shower?
The bridal shower is usually hosted by the bridesmaids, the bride or groom’s mother, or other close female relatives.As with other pre-wedding events, the guest list should be limited to people who are also invited to the wedding.
My Mom kept a detailed list of what things cost:
She paid $3.00 dollars for wedding shoes. Mine was $150. But they can go from very inexpensive to costly.
Average cost of wedding veil : The range / average cost of a wedding veil is anywhere from $100 to $800, but generally around $250 to $400 is the average cost. Mom’s cost $23.02.
Florist was the biggest price ( $106.85) Depending on your style and needs, your wedding flowers cost will vary, but the average cost of wedding flowers in the U.S. is around $1,500 with most couples spending between $700 and $2,500.
My Mom’s wedding picture :
The wedding announcement is a short article giving information about you and your new spouse, as well as about the ceremony. Many newspapers will even print announcements for free, though most will charge more for longer announcements or ones with pictures. Generally, newspapers run the announcements on the weekend of your wedding or after it, but you will need to get them the information or announcement well in advance
This is the picture that was placed in the Newspaper as the announcement.
50th Wedding Anniversary Quilt
My Mom’s dress fell apart over the years. For there 50th anniversary I made a quilt top with parts of her dress sewed into it. These are the flower applicated from the wedding dress.
I also made small keepsakes for all nieces and nephew as wedding keepsakes when they got married. Lisa
