THIS INDIAN SUMMER INSPIRED BRIDAL SHOWER ALREADY HAS US LOOKING FORWARD TO SUMMER!
Inspired by nature’s color palette as Summer transitions to Fall, an Indian Summer has the beauty of both seasons rolled into one. What better way to celebrate the couple of the hour than with a bright and playful afternoon outside serving margaritas and throwing confetti? We asked Megan of Coppola Creative to tell us more about her vision for today’s styled shoot.
“We were all desperately hanging on to the last ray of summer sunshine; and were happily surprised when an Indian Summer hit in the middle of a sweet autumn October.” Began Megan.
“Vibrant pineapple floral arrangements brought the DIY low palette table fit with rugs, blankets, and pillows to life. Over at the bar cart, margaritas were ready to be mixed, and custom chocolates looked too beautiful to eat. Down the walking path, the giddy couple threw custom mixed confetti at each other, and didn’t have to worry where it landed because it’s biodegradable! The bride to be, Karolina, stunned us all in a two-piece ensemble featuring a blush lace crop top and flowing tulle skirt in a contrasting cream. The afternoon ended with a a pair of clinking glasses etched with “his and hers,” as the sun began to descend behind the glowing estate.” She continued.
So how does a couple take this inspiration and bring it to life at their own event?
“Start with the pallet table and set the scene for a casual and approachable setting.” Megan told us.
“Simply stack as many palettes long and tall as you deem right. To achieve the same color feeling, gravitate towards indigo blues and white when picking decor. Layer your seating; runner rugs, blankets, and tons of pillows and poufs. Create a quick and gorgeous runner with a few yards of your favorite fabric and some branches of eucalyptus. If it’s available make sure you grab a few bundles of the seeded variety, it adds some texture and variety in size.”
“Onto the bar cart: stock it up! Using clear glass containers and throwing in fresh fruit creates a clean and colorful look. If you’re going for the “mix your own” bar, label everything! Hire a calligrapher or cozy up to your friend with the best hand writing. Make sure to throw in some small flower arrangements, even if it’s just a few blooms in a rocks glass. Now pour yourself a margarita and relax.”
“If a bride to be could take anything from my daydream that came to life, I’d want her to be inspired to savor the moment, and throw love around like confetti!” Megan added.
