I've been working with Jen on different monogram designs and she ended up going with monogram 13D. I altered this a little for the banner since I did it all in one color and was thrilled with the way it turned out. For Jen's gift I gave her the unity candle set she's been wanting and I'll also be giving her a monogram aisle runner that she asked for once we finalize all the details... it's nice to have friends in the industry! :)
Jen's shower was absolutely wonderful, everyone had an amazing time and it was tons of fun too. One of my favorite things was the "panty poem" the bridesmaids read. I just googled "panty poem for bridal shower" and found the original:
Bridal Shower Panty Poem
The bridesmaids have a secret to share
About our little bride
She is obsessed with underwear
And that we cannot hide
So for our little panty queen
We gathered up some twine
And working as a friendly team
We made a panty line.
Alternate verse if no clothesline available:
So for our special panty queen
We'll make her feel just fine
By working as a friendly team
To form a panty line.
(Bride's name) these undies are to last you
All throughout your life
And (groom's name) will be pleased to say
He has a sexy wife!
So listen up to hear about
Your lifelong panty plan
These underwear, we have no doubt
Will last your whole life span
The first are for your wedding day
Of course they are pure white
We know (groom's name) will shout, "Hooray!"
When he sees you on that night
The next are for your honeymoon
They're sexy and all lace
We hope you'll leave your hotel room
'Cause (honeymoon destination)'s a gorgeous place!
On Valentine's you'll wear this pair
Before you hit the bed
Cuz Cupid's arrow in the air
Shoots tushies that are red
After a year has passed you'll face
Anniversary number one
With these you'll surely have a blast
'Cuz leopard's so much fun!
Purple or an alternate color or print could be chosen in place of leopard in the verse above
Then when the time is right for you
And don't be saying, "Maybe"
You'll wear your little pink or blue
In honor of your baby
And when your years of wedding bliss
Become the big 2-5
Don't worry - you'll just slip this on
To keep the sparks alive
When finally you're old and gray
With these you can't go wrong
'Cuz sorry (Bride's name) but at that age
You just can't wear a thong
(found on Diva Girl Parties & Stuff)
How adorably hilarious is that?! Congratulations Jen! Can't wait 'til the wedding!
