(Psst… there’s a special surprise so make sure you read till the end!)
Keep the Bridal Shower Intimate
Regardless of everything going on, many brides are still following through with their events (with safety precautions of course!) and we LOVE to see it. One key way to do this is by keeping your events intimate and COVID friendly. It’s the best way to go to ensure everyone’s safety and comfort. But don’t get us wrong – planning a small party doesn’t mean you have to cut down the fun! Being with your closest friends and families will result in a small gathering with BIG memories to be made.
Bridal Shower Details for the WIN
Make your bridal shower stand out by paying attention to the details. It makes a world of a difference and doesn’t take as much effort as you think! Create anticipation for your fun soirée by picking out perfect invitations. Make sure it aligns with your theme & colors! There are LOTS of options out there, so skip the Googling and say hello to our friends at Peach Wolfe Paper Co. They make insanely cute invitations for just about any theme. Who would’ve thought that invitations could be so exciting and fun!?
Did Someone Say Mimosas?!
*Clink Clink!* What’s the best thing about brunch besides the food?… That’s right, bottomless mimosas!! Planning a bridal brunch just might be our favorite idea yet. 😉 Sitting around enjoying good food with your favorite pals sounds like a perfect time, don’t you think?
Brunch is not only easier to plan, but who doesn’t like a good mid-day breakfast! Just make sure you balance the savory with some sweets, like this beautiful statement cake from Catie Cakes.
Create a Beautiful Bridal Brunch Setting
Create your own unique bridal shower venue by finding an amazing rental company. Your backyard will be transformed into a beautiful scenery with lovely tables, matching linens, and cute seating. For decorations, all you need are some beautiful floral arrangements to tie everything together. Less is more, ladies! Let the floral arrangements stand out and create a gorgeous setting for your bridal brunch.
Time To Accessorize
Our absolute favorite thing about dressing up for bridal events is accessorizing, & yes, it is necessary! Future Wifeys: after you plan your outfit, make sure to add something that shows off your new status! Our Wifey Denim Jacket is super cute & easy to style with any look. A simple way to feel extra special (You deserve it!) during the party. Plus, you get great photos afterward. Do we need to say more?
Don’t forget about the guests! We always love it when you can incorporate everyone at the event for a little matching picture moment. A simple way to get the perfect group photo op is with our super cute Bride & Babe Heart Sunglasses. You can even use them as favors to decorate the plate settings!
