  1. Awesome webste. I have searched the web for party ideas for years and find this to be the best I have seen. Great ideas. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Thanks for the tips! I want my bridal shower to be a lot of fun, so this seems like a great list of ideas to go off of. Taking the girls to a spa themed bridal shower seems like something that everyone would enjoy. I’m sure that my friends would love to get pedicures, so I should find a spa and book enough appointments for all of my friends.

  3. This is so great! I had no idea where to start and now I have a great outline of ideas for each part of the day! Couldn’t have done it without you!

    1. Hi Carolyn, unfortunately no they aren’t. That would make a great book, though! Are you looking for a gift for someone getting married? We do have a few items in our store that might be a good fit!

  4. This list was so great and so helpful! I love the way it is set up and organized too. It got me thinking and gave me some great ideas! I haven’t found anything even close to as good as this! Thank you!!
