So, as you may know my sister is getting married this year. Pretty soon actually. We’re 2 weeks out from the wedding! Leading up to this last stride to the finish line, my sister, Natalie, has had 4 showers total (groom side, bride side, bachelorette party, and couples shower) which means I’ve been a busy bee DIY whatever her little heart desires and organizing “picture-worthy” showers.. even though I’ve been too busy to take pictures of the set up events. We just finished up the last shower, the couples shower, last night. Which is why I am very sluggish today.. However! I came 3 hours early for set up AND MANAGED TO TAKE PICTURES!! So here’s a little taste of my sister and future-brother-in-law’s I DO BBQ!
Couples showers are great because you can invite couples of your age (and, as we ended up doing, lots of other non-married friends) to enjoy a party together.. with the COUPLE actually being there. Instead of asking for more gifts on her registry, Nat just asked for every person to write a recipe so she can make a cook book!
And thankfully our prayers were heard for great Nebraska weather!
The fiancé smoked BBQ chicken legs and roasted cheesy potatoes! There was also canned peach cobbler for party favors, chips and dip, pasta salad, pumpkin bars, and apple pie! Natalie also got creative and made White Trash Peach Bellini (ingredients listed at the end).
The bag games I made earlier in the week (which will definitely be reused for the wedding at cocktail hour) were a huge hit! We actually set up bag tournaments that lasted us well into 2am. I was part of the winning pair of the losers bracket…
The barbeque ended with a bonfire by the pond and floating lanterns for their (premature) send off into the married life!
I’m so happy for these two to get married and spend an eternity together!
