This is going to be a really dumb question-but what is a "Time of the Day" shower?
Is it as simple as-the shower starts at 2:30 pm? Or the theme of the party is 2:30 pm??
Is this confusing or am I making it that way??

It's "Hi, you're invited to Susie Q's bridal shower. It's going to be terrific! The theme is "Time of Day." Please bring a gift that fits your time of day. Your assigned time is: xx:xx. Have fun with it! I hope you can make it, it's sure to be an afternoon our friend Susie will never forget! Please RSVP asap so if you can't make it, I can reassign your time to someone who cares more about Susie and her happiness. Best wishes, the bestest maid of honor ever"

ETA: I love the little cartoon critter animals playing musical instruments that are part of the show's theme. I love the squirrel (obviously!) blowing into a moonshine jug, and also the jackalope with a tambourine, the deer with a banjo rocks too.
The only thing I can possibly say to the Demolition Derby Wedding is, "I wanna marry ewe".
And, the bride holding her baby is a classic.

if you made me choose bridesmaid dresses from only those 4 choices i would choose the belle one because that's the least heinous but they're all pretty heinous looking.

honeychile,

the BEST place to get your minnie ears with an azure blue bow is going to be the Emporium on Main Street USA in Magic Kingdom. The closest you'll be able to get to azure blue is the Year of a Million Dreams Minnie ears. but i'm not sure if the YoaMD is still going to be going on in 09.

But MK has gotten better... they've renovated Haunted Mansion *it's freakin amazing now*, Space Mountain was being renovated when my college program ran out this past January, Spaceship Earth at Epcot has been renovated too.

Idk how you feel about jerky rides, but Soarin(epcot) & Dinosaur(animal kingdom) both gave me headaches after I got done riding them. and if you like rollercoasters i definitely recommend Expedition Everest in Animal Kingdom.

Just wondering, but what hotel are yall staying at???

Okay, I think anyone who buys a Disney Wedding Dress must wear those Minnie Mouse Ears with a Veil with it!



We're having our Convention at Disney World next year, and I'm going soley to get Minnie Mouse ears with an azure blue bow.

this reminds me of 27 dresses and all of those god awful ugly bridesmaid dresses that Katherine Heigl's character had to wear.

I think the worst bridesmaid dress of all is when the bride decides to go with a theme wedding ( i.e. 27 dresses' Gone with the Wind theme)



quote=skylark;1600978]LegallyBrunette, you are absolutely right. I don't know how I could have missed THIS:


Truly the worst.

ETA: I keep trying to figure out what it reminds me of... I think it is a cross between the fairy godmother (which would definitely be on the cinderella theme) or one of those fairies from sleeping beauty?[/quote]

Regarding the indecisiveness regarding shoe selection, I think it was, my friend (the bride) sent us bridesmaids an email that said, "This wedding is taking up too much of my time. I should be focusing on my thesis right now."

Ummmm, okay.

Oh gosh! The dress I'm wearing in a wedding in a couple of months didn't come out in this movie.....but one by the same designer and in the same color did.

Exactly! I haven't gotten my invite for the said shower yet (concerning as it's only three weeks away), I believe I'll be getting it this week. But I was going to go out this weekend and buy a gift. One of my friends then informed me that the MOH/younger sister of the bride was planning a "time of day" shower.
If I get stuck with some random time, I'm going to end up deviating from the registry. They aren't registered for a ton of stuff. Her fiance is kinda picky/indecisive when it comes to buying anything- it took him two months to decide on a round metal trash can for their kitchen. Did I mention he hasn't bought her an engagement ring yet? He gave her his grandmother's and told her to find one that she likes and then he'll buy it online, provided he likes it.

OMGWTF. I have never heard of this as a shower theme!! How are you supposed to buy a gift that "celebrates" 10:36 a.m.??

I've actually seen the time of day shower be cute. The only major flaw I see is that you get a lot of things you don't register for and a lot of edible gifts (coffee & grinder) for the morning, popcorn bucket with popcorn, candy, and movies for 8 PM, etc. There were some creative gifts though.

OMG dragging 6 girls to a bridal shop is like herding cats. I'm sure their opinions were all over the place. Poor you. Interesting choice of words on their part, like would it have been ok if you were a plump biotch?
I thought the trend was same fabric, different styles for BM's dresses; that way the skinny ones can go one way and the full figured can choose something that flatters them as well.

Isn't that show its own form of glorious?

There was a joke in our circle about pink guns and NRA lifetime memberships for Valentine's Day. I've already received one NRA membership as a gift, but I've yet to receive any firearms.
