DIY: wedding shower suite

I was recently asked to help shower one of my good friends through her prenuptial bliss. Of course I obliged and of course I offered to help make the wedding shower suite since I was right up my alley.  Not only was it something I knew I wanted to do but it was something I knew I'd be honored to do, just like being a bridesmaid at her upcoming October wedding. While deciding where, what and when we wanted to shower her, and how we could combine all things good together to maximize on the opportunities of so many coming from afar, we went with hosting a Wine and Chocolate shower at a dear friend's house in Los Angeles and then road trip onto Vegas the following morning. Flowing wine and a chocolate fountain on a warm Friday night in Los Angeles? What more could you want to be showered with, right?

[eat, drink, & be marri(ed)!]
[what happens in vegas...probably won't have to stay in Vegas in this case]

All-in-all, they were super fun (despite one minor typo...ugh!) to make and having gone through the wedding showers and wedding already, I know that having some thing paper and tangible to add to a memory box is the way to go. For marriage is life long and so should be the memories.

p.s. I'm sure there will come a post filled with the wine and chocolate that will come with this invitation!
