Ms. Dancer’s Wedding Mad Hatter Shower

WELCOME TO WONDERLAND

Then it was time for Ms. Dancer’s Wedding Shower to start, see the set up here and here. Moments before people arrived Ms. Dancer and I took a moment to get a couple shots of her. I expecially liked the shots of her playing with the dodo stuffed animal which was a remnant of my previous Halloween Queen of Hearts costume.

PLAYING CROQUET WITH A BIRD INSTEAD OF A MALLET IS DIFFICULT TO DO... ADORE THOSE SHOES BY THE WAY

THIS IS ONE OF MY FAVOURITE PHOTOS OF THE SHOWER – I JUST LOVE THE MANIACAL EXPRESSION ON HER FACE AS SHE CHOKES THAT POOR BIRD

Since there were about two hundred photos in all I am just going to post about the highlights from my perspective. I think one of my favourite moments was when the women played the toilet paper wedding dress game, you know the game where they get two rolls of toilet paper per team and they have to construct a wedding dress on one of the models. Some of the groups really embraced the project like Ms. Dancer’s sister and team.

THIS WHOLE TOILET PAPER WEDDING DRESS CAN LOOK SUPER FABULOUS

While some, like the lala land girls had to be encouraged. I love how Ms. Photoshoot is offering Ms. Boots a glass of wine in the below shot to keep her going.

SOME NEEDED A BIT OF ENCOURAGEMENT

Although the women playing the game were fun to watch I had even more fun holding not one but two babies of the mothers playing the game. With Mrs. Rambo’s baby on one arm and Mrs. Bulldog’s baby on the other I was in heaven.

TWO BABIES ARE BETTER THAN ONE

All the ladies did an incredible job and we lined the up on the runway for Ms. Dancer to judge.

THE FO-BRIDES ALL LINED UP

I was super impressed by some of the details like a toilet paper rose...

ADORABLE CHILD BRIDE

Everyone was asked to wear a hat to the mad hatter party and I was pleasantly surprised that so many showed up with them on. Some were country,

A CONCOCTION OF FEATHER AND TUILE

Ms. Dancer opened her gifts with flair and since there was very little ribbons on the present’s one of the bridesmaids (yes the same one that made the fantastic toilet paper rose) used the tissue paper to fill in the traditional rehearsal day bouquet.

THE REHERSAL DAY BOQUET WAS GORGEOUS BUT NOTHING CAN COMPETE WITH THAT HAPPY SMILE

Ms. Dancer was glowing, everyone had a great time; I think the shower was a total success... thank the LORD!
