When it comes to having a pre-wedding celebration, it’s fun to gather with friends and focus on the blending of lives that is to come. One local bride had a Moroccan themed bridal shower, which was both meaningful and beautiful as you will see!
When it comes to planning a bridal shower, gathering inspiration can be fairly easy if you do a little sleuthing. Spencer, the bride-to-be, has a heart for missions work, and her shower included many of her favorite things such as Persian and Moroccan motifs, handcrafted wood and ceramic pieces. She stated, “The girls blew me away – they knew all of my favorite things, scoured my Pinterest boards, and raided my home to make the most ethereal day of celebration I could have ever asked for!”
Why a Moroccan themed bridal shower?
Well, Spencer and her fiance, Brennan, met in college due to their mutual interest in missions work. “Brennan and I began to spend more time together and we realized that our hearts for the Lord, our passions and dreams were distinctly similar. It did not take long for us to realize that the Lord had been orchestrating our lives for each other the whole time,” Spencer explained. And, of course, their future plans involve missions work both in Lynchburg and abroad.
The bridal celebration took place on the porch of a friend’s home, and Spencer was showered with love by some of her favorite people, who wrote her heartfelt notes, posed for photographs and bathed Spencer in prayer. She recalled, “The whole day was so special and magical. It looked like it was out of a magazine and it held such significance to my heart. I could not have asked for a more perfect bridal shower celebration!”

Bridal Shower Game Idea (in the words of Spencer)
One of the most hilarious moments was a fun game that we played. Jamie (a friend) snuck over and recorded Brennan answering questions about himself, our dreams, and our relationship. The girls gave me a mason jar full of oversized gum balls and they asked me the same questions that Jamie asked Brennan. The objective was to answer the exact same way that Brennan did to each question.
If I got any of the questions wrong, I had to stuff a gum ball into my mouth and keep it there (and continue talking with all the gum balls in my mouth). Thankfully I only got a few of the questions wrong, but that mouthful of five gum balls was way too much! The game was funny and light but also so beautiful because it showed truly how unified Brennan and I are. I was surprised by the creativity of this game – I loved it!
