Favorite celebrations with Target Wedding + a giveaway!!

by - Thursday, November 07, 2013

Just over 8 years ago I had my very first bridal shower and since then I've thrown a few for a couple close friends. I've been so excited to partner with Target on the "Be Yourself, Together" campaign because I can relive my wedding moments. I think the bridal shower is one of my favorite events leading up to the big day! When I registered way back prior to getting married I remember my husband and I strolling the aisles of Target scanning things that we wanted. Target makes it so easy with their Target Wedding Registrybook they put out as well as their wonderful and easy to browse website! My husband's item of choice was a cookware set and my item that I didn't want to leave out of our registry was a dyson vacuum.

Last fall I was the matron of honor at my best friend's wedding and I was in charge of throwing the bridal shower. I had so much fun! My friend requested no games although that is one of my favorite parts! We honored her request and instead showered her with goodies! For drinks, this beverage dispenser was a saving grace as we didn't have to prepare something new it was just pull and pour. We served appetizers on platters as well as some hearty sandwiches. At her request, we served some delicious New York style plain cheesecake. Looking back, I think I would have added a smoothie bar and also an array of toppings for the cheesecake for fun and variety!

I'd love to hear which pre-wedding celebration is your favorite! Target will award one reader a $25 Target Gift Card if you visit the Target Wedding Catalog and share with us in comments below an item you would or have used for a bridal shower. Winner will be drawn tomorrow!

happy thursday!

peace, love & coffee,
