Our First Pre-Wedding Party

We had a couple shower in beautiful Scottsdale Arizona last weekend. I wanted to share a couple pictures of my future hubby and I from our day!


 

The fashion...

My cute little bridal shower dress!

My dress is from goodwill what makes it even cheaper was my grandma bought it for me and another dress. This $5 dress is accented with a Michaels bridal belt on clearance for $1andsomechange. My fianc├ęs outfit is from target clearance rack... but to make it even sweeter I won a bet from my sister so she had to fork over the 6 dollars. His slacks are from a previous wedding we attended and the tie is a hand-me-down... p.s. his shirt was tucked in until the brothers made fun of him... younger siblings gotta love 'em.


Isn't he handsome!?
okay lazy eyes but delicious food!
Cornhole champion!

and why dont we throw in " A NAUTICAL BABY SHOWER" while we're at it

 

So still a little jealous my sister just had a baby!  The best way to cope with the cuteness? Throw a "*b@da$$*-nautical-baby-shower...-Ships-Ahoy-it's-a-Boy-aka-welcoming-bash."

nautical baby shower
free? yup!


So here are some freebie printable... honestly though email me at journalforourjourney@gmail.com I have tons of leftovers that need a home (I'll hook you up! first come first served :) )





 

~25 pictures so scroll down find what you need right click to save and bam saved you hours! If you need something custom made with similar idea let me know! Here are some of the ideas we used Our Pinterest Board for Showers!


food signs
We did the around the room game approach since not everyone likes joining in... we did do a game that said welcome baby's name (find as many words as you can in welcome baby) and the candy bar game as well as the unscramble words game.

blank one for your own creation


huge hit with the little ones... we printed off color sheets and put fun games out... bring jenga it is great a building blocks too


bonus aka prize table raffle again went raffle crazy


goldfish cracker sign on our galley table


printed out a bunch of these and of course had pens and a clipboard!


the sign I put into the cotton ball counting jar


diaper raffle sign... couldn't resist putting a little mustache on it.


this is what I wrote for the onesie design center... I have more signs but they have his name on everything 


always do this! saves soooo much time!



well we kept going with the nautical theme... our galley was stocked by wonderful family and friends


entry table because we were in the midst of cold season :( and had our hand sanitizer out in full force


cotton ball counting game... buy a bunch of bags in different sizes... we gave away the jar full of cotton balls really cool jar and hey who doesn't need cotton balls? ours held 514


paper template for the wishes... we put two on a page and stretched them


my sister bought a gorgeous bottle for the notes we printed them on blue paper and had little rubber bands to help put them in there.



we did the 'poop' in the diaper game but with a twist no poop in it :)
this was in the diaper instead of poop they were happy


if you get these exact items it will make it easier on you ;)


holy prizes we came back with so many goodies... and totally scored the one I loved too! Everyone came back with a token


we went raffle crazy!!!!!! wipes and diapers to make it "fair" we let them grab one ticket for every $2 spent!


cute little rhymes around the room we put this by the guessing jar


we gave away homemade soaps and custom made pouches


for the sign in table... we had a little paddle so cute with the baby's name etched on it


Price is Right baby shower game




Diaper and wipe raffle wording... on the other side we wrote where mama was registered
