The Casting Dock

the wedding train, all aboard

As I have mentioned before, one of my closest friends and favorite people is getting married this January and I have the great pleasure of hopping on the wedding festivities train bridal-party style.

First stop: bridal shower.

I’ve been weighing options and ideas for this baby for quite some time. As the only bridal party member within the state, I had a lot of freedom to throw this thing however I saw fit. In the end, I decided on a Christmas themed December shower in the back bay of Boston (hooray for generous friends and their incredible back bay brownstone offered as a hosting ground!).

Despite the rainy, dreary morning, we had a stellar turn-out to celebrate my one-of-a-kind friend. There was typical eating, drinking, and mingling, a fairly raucous and quite frankly, HILARIOUS game of adapted fishbowl (think charades meets taboo with a Christmas/Steph theme), a mother flown in from Cali to celebrate, and no present opening until the after party (great call Steph…does anyone really enjoy that part of showers anyhow? So long and boring).

All in all, I consider it a success. A positive precursor to what will no doubt be a stellar wedding, and more importantly, a killer marriage.

Looking forward to the next stop on this festive train…bachelorette party, baby…

Oh, I’m on board the wedding train. I’m in the engine room shoveling coal into the flames. Maybe they’ll let me come out into the party car come January?
