A wedding Shower

In a little over a month, my little brother is getting married. Yesterday, the girls and I went to a bridal shower for my soon to be sister-in-law Amanda. I always get a little nervous when I take all 3 girls anywhere. Time and time again, they have proven that the 3 of them should not be let out of the house together without adequate parental supervision (meaning myself and my husband).  Yesterday, however, they were so good, I was amazed.  I even began to think that maybe I had left my real children at home and accidentally picked up these impostors.  After the shower, when we got home (they even behaved in the car for the entire 35 minute drive), I wrote it down on the calendar to be framed.  A day like that is about as frequent as Hailey's comet! 

Anyway, I wanted to share a gift idea with you.  I love buying gifts for people for any occasion.  I put a lot of thought into the gifts I buy (usually).  I don't like buying things from a registry, I like giving something special and maybe personalized.  I'm not saying that no one should ever buy from the registry.  That's what it's there for, but it's always nice when one or two people go the personal route. 

One of my favorite wedding shower gifts is personalized champagne flutes and a personalized bottle of champagne.  At personalwine.com, you can design your own labels for any occasion.  I gave this gift to my sister-in-law a couple years ago.  Then, I got the glasses from weddingaccessories.net.  They were nice and had a large selection.  This time, for Amanda, I bought the glasses from personalcreations.com.  The selection was smaller and they didn't have exactly what I was looking for, but I was very happy with what I did buy.  Also, they participate in the Box Tops for Education program.  If you go to btfe.com and shop through their marketplace, personal creations gives back 4% of your order to your school.  Also, I found a 20% off coupon, so the order was good for everyone!

So, there is my gift suggestion for a wedding shower.  The glasses and champagne totalled to just under $100, that included the crazy shipping costs I had to pay for waiting to order it a week before the shower. 

And congratulations to my brother Andrew and his Amanda!
