Planning a Virtual Shower

My dear friends, hosted a virtual bridal shower for my daughter and it was wonderful! I was so sad that everyone could not meet in Milwaukee for a shower and was not excited about the idea of a virtual shower. I thought it would be very chaotic and not personal at all. I was wrong! It was so nice to bring family and friends together from all over the country and that never could have happened if everyone tried to travel.

My friends, Cammy & Lisa, planned everything that included fun party boxes, advice postcards and games.

Everyone received a printed invite with party details. The guests rsvp’d and were sent a shower box that included a bottle of rose, napkin, cute wedding cookie, an advice postcard for Morgan and a party favor of gift enclosure cards. Super cute! Everyone was asked to wear pink.

Since there were guests that had never met, the shower kicked off with introductions of Name, where are you from, how do you know Morgan and what is your favorite dessert? Fun start!

Next, Morgan was asked to share what she was most nervous and most excited about the ceremony and that started a great conversation of managing the timeline of the day and creating of list of the most important photos to share with the photographer.

After that, Morgan read her advice cards and she had requested home organization tips.

Then, Morgan was asked to answer “What did he say?”, questions that Cammy had asked the groom. What cheers Morgan up? Where do you think you will be in 10 years? Almost all of their answers matched perfectly. Did not know that Morgan wants to open a surfing school for kids and they want to build an A Frame home. When asked what cheers Morgan up on a bad day, the groom replied, “Me”. Sweet!

Everyone was asked to share their favorite memory of Morgan which was interesting because Morgan has lived in quite a few places so many nice stories.

While she was unwrapping gifts, we played movie trivia (movies with LOVE in the title) and music trivia (songs with LOVE in the title).

The shower lasted about an hour and 45 minutes and was truly a wonderful time. So thankful for my friends to plan and thankful for all of Morgan’s friends who care for her so much.

On to the wedding!
