It is a truth universally acknowledged that when your best friend gets engaged, you need to throw her an amazing bridal shower.
When Michelle and I first met, we bonded over our love of all things geeky: otaku culture, cosplay, comic books, video games, and of course… Jane Austen.
Naturally, when Austenland came out last year, we watched it. And when I say “watched it”, I mean that there wasn’t a single weekend in this year where we both didn’t watch this movie together, or separately, and then quoted it back to each other.
When she asked me to be her Maid of Honor, I knew that the one thing I had to do was throw her a surprise Austenland themed bridal shower.
