To be Seen in "Modern Bride"

One of the games we played at Erika's bridal shower showed off the latest(and greatest?)in wedding dresses...toilet paper style. Don't be surprised if you see these very dresses in the latest editions of Vogue or Modern Bride.

My team created this beautiful dress for Marissa. It featured twisted spaghetti straps and a lovely sash in the back. As you can see in the picture, we also formed a white flower to go over the left strap. To finish off the look, we made a veil and small bouquet of white flowers. Although it is hard to tell, the bodice of the dress was "embroidered" with sweet little flowers and designs. I have such talent at picking out good toilet paper.

Elizabeth's dress had a Medieval/Egyptian flair to it. I really liked her full veil and the gold ribbon that went over it. They added a little color by attaching one of the crazy barrettes we handed out for a different game to the top of the veil.

Now showing--Molly.
Her dress was very.....creative. Especially up near the neckline. Her bouquet was very nice; her designers did a nice job adding the pink ribbon. You can tell that Elizabeth and Molly's designers are related because both girls have gold ribbon, long veils and flowers in their hair. Thankfully no one started complaining about having their ideas stolen. ;)

Here are all the brides waiting patiently for Erika to come up the stairs. They were all such good sports about being wrapped within an inch of their lives dressed up for so long. Due to some miscomunication Erika didn't arrive until around 12:30, an hour and a half after she was expected. We had planned it so that everyone would be "in" their dress for when Erika got to the shower. Its not easy to eat,walk, and make a scrapbook when you're dressed like this! Thank you so much girls!
A final thought brought to us by Molly(who,lest you forget, is only 4):
"I never thought I would see the day when a bunch of ladies were dressed up in toilet paper."
