Our Love Story: Bridal Showers

Catch up on Part 1 of our love story here
Part 2 here

Cory and I were so blessed by friends and family that all wanted to throw us a shower to celebrate our life together. If it looks like we had a lot of showers, just keep in mind that one we both have big families and two we live in the south. Showers are just what you do when someone gets married or has a baby. Here are a few highlights from our showers!

ONE |Whittaker Shower Host

I’ve been blessed to have grown up with two grandmothers on my moms side of the family and my sweet Nana hosted my first shower with the help of my moms sisters.

I’m sure I said something dumb which made everyone crack up.

My Nana is a quilt maker and makes quilts for almost every special occasion for each of her grandchildren {which is a bunch} and this is our wedding quilt she made us!

TWO | Jessica and me 2

My second shower was thrown by matron of honor and best friend, Jessica and her mom Marla.

Our third shower was a co-ed shower thrown by Cory’s grandma Opal and a few of his aunts. It was so much fun for Cory and his friends to join in on the wedding celebrations.

This fabulous gift wrapping was from some of Cory’s friends. Obviously they were single and this is what they had in their car. In case you can’t read it, it says “teeths” but who really knows why??? I do love those boys and their creative minds, though!

Cory and his best friend Zach being silly in the aprons my Nana made {Zach is also one of the two guys who brought in the chick-fil-a bag…makes a little more sense now, doesn’t it?}

Our next shower was thrown by the church I grew up in, where we were members and got married.

I can promise you this wasn’t our idea.

My last shower was my lingerie shower thrown by my sister Jayme and Jessica and it was coupled with my bachelorette party in downtown Greenville.

Just a little innocent fun, right?

This post was actually harder than I originally thought it would be because there really wasn’t much of a story and I didn’t take near as many pictures back than as I do now but I hope you enjoyed a glimpse into all my bridal showers!

Come back next Wednesday for the next part of our love story {I would tell you but I’m still trying to decide which one to do next}!

  • Aww, shower season is a fun one–and so helpful when you’re just starting out in life and really need some basic stuff! :)

    • Oh, yes! We both still lived at home when we got married so we had nothing! We were so fortunate to have all these lovely showers.

  • Goodness – you were showered out! & had fabulous outfits for every one of them :)
    That white dress is spectacular!!!
