I spent all of yesterday afternoon/evening doing something I LOVE – party planning! The mother of one of my wedding clients for later this year asked if I could *help* her put together a few ideas for their bridal shower. Seeing as how I love all things creative, I was on that project in a matter of minutes! I put together 4 themes that would be fun to photograph and would leave a lasting impression on the ladies who are attending. Just short of midnight, I concluded my project, only to realize that the date of the shower is a day that I am already booked with another wedding. So after all my planning, I won’t even be able to be there to see one of these 4 visions come to life…and to photograph it! MAJOR bummer!
So you tell me, which of these is your favorite?
Theme #1 – “How sweet it is to be loved by you” bridal shower
Dress code: Your brightest colored cocktail dress and/or high heels!
Creative ideas: A rented cotton candy machine.
Theme #2 – “Old-fashioned lemonade” bridal shower (note: this theme was inspired by Justin and Mary from their recent workshop, which I was able to help a bit with)
Dress code: All guests must wear something yellow (dress, shoes, necklace, headband, nail polish, etc)
Creative idea: Make a photo booth out of a lemonade stand for all guests to get their picture taken.
Theme #3 – “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” bridal shower
Dress code: Favorite party dress, and lots of jewelry
Creative idea: Request that guests wrap their gift in tiffany blue paper and a white ribbon.
Theme #4 – “A weekend in Paris” bridal shower
Dress code: Little black dress and your favorite set of pearls!
Creative ideas: For invitations, send “passports” (see picture above) to begin setting the tone and theme for all the guests. Have a native French speaker come in and teach all the women how to say a few key phrases in French.
