The Most Efficient Shower in History

Mr. Plane’s mom threw us our first shower this past weekend, and it was awesome, albeit occurring during a whirlwind of a weekend. Instead of recapping in words, I thought it would be more fun to do so in photos. So here we go!

(All photos personal.)

Everyone arrived and met each other…

We checked out some of the thoughtful details…


Door prizes! 


Flowers in our wedding colors!

…and then partook in some food.


I am thrilled about eating. Mr. Plane, not so much.


These cupcakes were phenomenal.


Flower Girl R liked them, too!

We went immediately into present opening!


Mr. Plane did a lot of unwrapping…



…I did a lot of clapping.



MOH Morticia meticulously recorded each gift…


…while Flower Girl E helped collect the bows for my rehearsal bouquet.


We thanked our guests…


…posed for photos…

…and then I did a little dance, since I was having so much fun.


No idea what is happening here.

We were in and out in less than 2 hours! From what I have heard, and experienced, some showers can take hours and hours. FMIL Plane was having none of that. I think this is the most efficient shower any of our guests had ever seen — and from the comments I got as everyone headed out the door, people were very appreciative of keeping the afternoon moving right along.

I’m so glad I had the opportunity to spend time with some of Mr. Plane’s female family members. We don’t get to see them often enough and I was actually a little embarrassed that I was meeting some of them for the first time. Better at the shower then on the wedding day, I guess!

Although I thanked FMIL Plane with a small gift at the shower, it definitely wasn’t enough to express my gratitude for putting such a great shower together — from the decorations, to the food, to the thoughtful touches, I truly could not have asked for a better day!
