When I think of a bridal shower I often think of it as a rather muted affair, the decor is traditionally white and the guests sip tea whilst delicately nibbling at their sandwiches as the bride is showered with gifts. So you can imagine how much we love a bridal shower that turns that vision on its head and that is the very reason I am so excited to share today’s shoot with you. With it’s raw bohemian vibe, neutral tones and splashes of vibrant colour it is all you could want for a fun and modern bridal shower.
Newly engaged? Get ready for a series of parties and celebrations in your honor! It’s truly such a special time to be with friends and family but hey, we love any excuse for a party and wouldn’t it be cute to throw a ‘be my bridesmaids bash’ for some bridal party girlie fun?! We totally love the idea of having some proper gal pal time amongst glitzy decor and plenty of champagne! I’ll hand you over to Lori from LOLA Event Productions with her 3 main tips for your own unique bash!
Pamper Your Peeps
Life is about to get really busy- engagement parties, showers, bachelorette weekends, gown shopping, and so much more. To show your bridesmaids, in advance, that you love and appreciate the time investment of being a bridesmaid, pamper your posse! Think about planning a spa day, wine tasting, or a delicious outing to ask them to be a part of your big day. There is no right or wrong way to do this! Just have fun being intentional with those amazing ladies in your life.Details
Can I let you in on a little secret? I’ve never been to a bridal shower. How rubbish is that?! They’re actually not that big over here in the UK but I fully intend to try and change that! They seem like such a beautiful thing to be a part of and let’s be honest, who doesn’t love a girlie get together?! Today’s bridal shower shoot only fuelled my desire to attend one of these events and when you see the colourful boho elements I just know you guys will fall in love with it too! P.S All of the ladies in this shoot were actually friends IRL, hence all the pretty, smiley laughing faces!
If you love flowers as much as I do then you’re going to go WILD when you see today’s botanical bridal shower shoot! It’s all kinds of gorgeous with a big emphasis on fashion! So much so that all of the models you see here are beautiful fashion bloggers who were told to wear their most glamorous floral frocks! I really love the idea of asking your girls to wear something floral to your bridal shower to quickly enhance a flower filled theme!
