On May 16, 2009, our wonderful maid of honor, Karen, and bridesmaid, Megan, hosted a fabulous co-ed stock-the-bar shower for us in Grand Rapids. The girls went all out for the 34 guests, providing delicious drinks, skewered meat, and hors d’oeurves and desserts that were to-die-for! We can’t express enough how wonderful the ladies were and how much fun we had with all of these great people. Everyone came with a little something to "Stock our
bar Man Cave." Here are a few of ours. The rest can be viewed on Shutterfly using the bride’s maiden name in lowercase as the password.
First, the invitations (note that ours was addressed to the Dorky Duo):
The girls created a beautiful display of food. Warming up in the background were some beef and chicken skewers and crab cakes.
After some eating and mingling, they start setting up for a game. Megan pulled out the mousetraps…
Karen then explained that we were going to do heats of "Don’t get your weiner caught in the mouse trap." As she explained the the guests that the point of the game was to try to set off the mouse trap with the hot dog without using hands, the guests reacted in shock!
…but they all got into it! Even the boys who tried to hide had some fun. Ryan, one of our ushers, actually won the final round of who could set it off the fastest.
Then, the girls had everyone draw a wedding cake topper in one minute. There were three categories to be won: Most vulgar, Best representation of the couple, and most artistic. And go!
The last game was the Newlywed Game where the girls read questions to the guests. Guys had to guess what I was going to answer and the girls had to guess what Donny was going to answer. In the end, our friend Jas won for the guys and Angie won for the girls. Winners of all the games took home either a wine opener, bottle opener, or mini bottle of liquor!
Here we are with some of our guests.
Some of the groomsmen were able to make it into town!
And thanks to these two ladies for putting on the show. It was a great shower and people can’t stop complimenting on how much fun they had! Great job, girls!
We are truly blessed with great people in our lives!
