Bridal Shower Attire

Here's what I wore to my first ever bridal shower! :) We were supposed to come in our "girly" outfits and I almost went all-floral and pastel. But then I found this polka-dot dress that I bought months ago hiding at the back of my closet and waiting for its debut. The final decision was made because, believe it or not, this casual sleeveless dress with its cutout back and shorter-than-I'm-used-to hemline is way out of my comfort zone. And since I'm trying to get out of my you're-too-fat-to-be-wearing-this mindset, I pushed myself to wear this.




Blue Ditsy Polkadot Cutout Dress: Forever 21 Plus
Double Braided Belt: Borrowed from the bride-to-be!
Bag: NYC Loop (Rustan's)
Striped Blue Peeptoe Wedges: Payless

Since it was my first time to help organize a bridal shower, I really had to research on activities and games that we could play. All my closest friends who got hitched in our early twenties had married in the US (and early twenties meant little or no money), so I could only celebrate with them in spirit. But this time around, I am honored to be a bridesmaid for my close friends who will walking down the aisle on July 15th! Woo-hoo!

To make the bride feel extra special, the other bridesmaids and I plotted for weeks about the surprise bridal shower. I scoured the internet for a suitable place and stumbled upon Stacy's in Capitol Hills Drive, somewhere deep in Quezon City. We hesitated at first because the place was far from us, but decided to go for the ambience. The place is really pretty with walls in pastel colors and feminine touches everywhere. Food was simple but tasty, and easy on the pocket. We ordered the Potato-Chip Crusted Fried Chicken, Spaghetti Carbonara and Sausage and Potato Casserole. And to close the meal, a friend of ours brought sugar butter cookies and fudgy chocolate cupcakes. Delish!

We played some games and had a little Q & A to test the bride-to-be's knowledge of her groom. Unfortunately for the groom-to-be, his fiancee barely passed but insisted that her answers were correct and proceeded to scold him by calling on his cellphone after the quiz. Haha! I would have had tons of photos to share of this cutesy place that's perfect for baby showers too, except my dear sister who charged the battery for the camera completely forgot to return it before we left. Oopsie. Hope these photos from Stacy's Facebook page can suffice for now. :)

  7. My dress came with the poofyish part beneath so I didn't had to buy an extra petticoat. I wasn't sure of my shoes too and asked them to keep it long, and there is plenty of space to work with.
