Welcome!

Welcome to Ashley’s virtual bridal shower!  Many of you are probably wondering, “What in the world is a virtual bridal shower?”  Well, it’s a modern (maybe too modern) way to have a bridal shower for Ashley while she’s in Texas and the rest of us would-be guests to a traditional bridal shower are scattered across the U.S.

Here’s the deal:

1. The bridal shower will officially begin on Monday, January 20th and end on Sunday, January 26th.  This means that while you can interact with this website beforehand, the shower will officially begin on January 20th, so everything will be ready by that date.  You must participate by January 26th.

2.  Check out the links above.  You can read about Stephanie and Jacob and their wedding details, view their registry and contribute to their honeymoon fund, and leave words of wisdom for the couple.

3.  You can also play games!  There are a total of four games: 1) Two Truths & A Lie; 2) Etiquette 911; 3) Wedding Vows; and 4) PicassoHead.  Each game has instructions for how to play.  Most games will require you to leave answers or a link in the comments section.  For more information about the Games, click on the “Games” tab in the menu.  Winners will receive prizes — yay!  Winners will be determined after January 26th and prizes sent between January 26th-February 14th.

We’re so excited to be able to celebrate Ashley’s upcoming wedding with all the women that are important to her and Cody.  It’s too bad that we’re not all in the same place and cannot gather in one room.  But hey, this will be fun too!
