Bridal Shower in a Box

If you are Tomislav (hi babe!), then as my confidante, you know that I've been bumming on some of the American traditions that I am missing out on pre-wedding simply because they don't have the same traditions here. Since I was last home in January, I knew I wouldn't be home again before the wedding and there have been a couple of times where I broke down because I was sad that my Mom wouldn't be able to throw me a bridal shower. We had so much fun organizing my sister's bridal shower last year and it turned out so well. Last Friday afternoon, I was having one of those blue moments and of course, chatted with my sister since she always makes everything better. Little did I know, I was in for a big surprise this past weekend!

The plan was to check out this new club on Saturday night but first we'd all meet up at our great friend Ivona's house for some drinks. We were getting ready to go out and at first I wanted to wear jeans and then Tomislav kept telling me to dress sexier! I was like, "Whaaaaat?!" He never tells me what to wear so it was shocking! Thank goodness he told me to though because when we got to Ivona's...


My amazing MOH and sister organized a bridal shower in a box and sent it over here, complete with recipes and marriage advice from all the wonderful women in my life over in America, (as well as ones from Croatia), presents, and so much love!

 Ivona - Dominika's co-host ;)

Adorable Maja in the bridal bow hat!

 Bridal Shower ---> Bachelorette Party in Cro Cro!

 Girls rule :)

 The "Bree-da" in the Middle (That's Bride in Croatian hehe)

It was a total dream come true, and made me so so so happy. Dominika, my Mom, Tomislav, and all my friends from the States and Croatia and everywhere made it so special for me. I'm so happy that even though I'm far from home, my 2 best gals still were able to throw me an unforgettable bridal shower! AND I love my girls here for taking the opportunity to give me a Croatian bachelorette party while they were at it ;) Thank you all so much! How lucky am I? 2 surprise parties in the last 6 months!

  2. It was wonderful! I love your bilingual blog! So cool :)

  3. Planning a bridal shower is tough but it is completely worth the work! We got the bride to be a personalized 'born to be bride' hat with her pic printed on the front. We discovered a fantastic bridal shower checklist and got some personalized post cards and tank tops made from this website:

  4. The wedding ceremony was serviced in the dining room, so they set up chairs for the guests. Once the ceremony ended, they quickly moved the chairs out and set up tables and chairs for formal dining.
