Forty days before the wedding, on the Feast of St. Louis de Montfort, we hosted a bridal shower for Monica. The feast day was especially appropriate. When Monica and Inshal began dating and discerning that their relationship might lead to marriage, they made the Marion consecration together.
Our friend, Jenny, offered her lovely home and her talented cooking. The weather cooperated to give us a perfect spring afternoon for family and friends to shower Monica with love and gifts for her newlywed home.
We made up the name 'Inshonica' to use for them as a couple. :)
