Do ya’ll remember Rachel’s Little Mermaid cosplay proposal? We’ve got Rachel’s Little Mermaid bridal shower to share this time around. Unda da sea we go!
My mother and I put a ton of work into every little detail. From the chocolate-covered pretzels to the hanging jellyfish, everything was made by either myself, my bridesmaids, and/or my mom. I displayed the tail that started it all as well as wedding pictures for my parents and their parents, wanting to reflect on what was to come and the past. All the decor linens were donated by a family friend to me a bit back before she passed, and that lovely gift has kept on giving.
With family and friends by my side, we had lots of great themed food. “Crabwiches” (egg salad), fish and chips, “seaweed dip” (spinach dip), and the lovely cupcakes were done by our friend, Tina Goetz. We played a few games including Disney love songs, guess the bride’s age, and crafting a beautiful bouquet as a group.
I also had a Dutch tradition called “the wishing tree.” Usually done at weddings, sort of like a guest book,
guests write wishes or advice for the couple. I got so much great advice. I was happy to also get a picture of every guest at my little photo booth we set up.
I really felt the magic in the air with this Disney-themed shower. The countless weeks we had prepping were totally worth all the madness we had trying to get it all together.
