One of the three bridal showers I am helping to plan this year took place this past weekend and I am happy to say that the lovely Summer of Grey Likes Weddings felt that it was nice enough to feature on her gorgeous blog! Please head over there to check it out! :)
I have to give a HUGE shout out and "Thank you!" to Connie M Chung Photography for coming to capture images of our shower and taking pictures of the bride and each guest at our "photobooth"!
We worked with a sophisticated palette that focused on tiffany blue accented with other soft colors like butter cream yellow and peach, blush pink.
Jane of Olive Hue Paper Goods helped to create the designs for all of the stationery and paper goods and I printed and assembled them at home, which definitely saved on costs.
The bride wanted a dessert bar for her wedding but it was not in her budget, so we decided to splurge on one for her bridal shower. We ordered some delicious mini lemon cupcakes, red velvet cake pops and tiffany blue macaroons from Melody at My Sweet and Saucy, and guests loved them. We also packaged a single macaroon for each guest to take home as a favor and personalized them with individual name tags.
I hand-made some paper-rosettes to hang above our food table and can't wait to use these for other events in the future. I feel like they make a huge statement on a small budget! You can find a tutorial by Posh Paperie here on Style Me Pretty.
And thank you, dear readers, for coming along for the ride! This weekend is my first official wedding of the year. I am so excited that I get butterflies in my stomach every time I think about it. The bride and groom are the sweetest and I have friends in the bridal party, so I have a feeling the day is going to be fun-filled and amazing. Of course, I will share the lovely details with you all soon. Until then, have a Happi Weekend!
