The world outside my window is so green right now, so this springtime garden bridal shower felt perfect to share. For this brunch bridal shower, Catalina’s bridesmaids set up a gorgeous mimosa bar and rolled up their sleeves to DIY all the flowers, including the adorable succulents each guest received as a party favor. Cute little donuts made for the perfect sweet spread, and guests played a few low-key bridal shower games, like sharing date ideas (to help keep romance alive!) or guessing the number of corks in a vase to win a prize. Thanks to Kathryn Hyslop Photography for sharing!
Ingredients needed to put together a cute champagne bridal shower like this yourself? Cupcakes, roses and plenty of champagne. Christine of Entwined Weddings created a champagne bar using balloons as the bubbles and a cute chalkboard sign telling guests to “Pop the bubbly, I’m getting a hubby.” Bright orange, yellow and pink accent the rose gold color palette, making for a bright, cheerful setting. We’re especially obsessed with the mini Tears of Joy tissue boxes! So cute!
For this beautiful citrus bridal brunch, a group of vendor pals got together to plan the perfect fresh and modern party—and take a turn in front of the cameras! A palette of light aqua mixed with lemon, lime and orange gave this party an almost tropical vibe, while beautiful greenery was the perfect contrast to the bright summery shades. The menu included lemon tarts, mini blackberry pancake stacks and a warm spinach and cheese quiche. The team took the time to tie the theme throughout the entire apartment, framing coordinating wall art, styling a bar cart and creating linens to match the color palette. Each guest took away a coordinating custom pouch.

If you are a person who thinks you don’t like bridal showers, try adding wine. Ta-da! Now you love bridal showers! But seriously, Running Hare Vineyard in Prince Frederick, Maryland, was the perfect setting for this gorgeous bridal shower picnic for bride Andie’s family and friends. Matron of honor Caroline gifted each guest with mini pies from Andie’s favorite bakery and the ladies enjoyed cabernet and conversation in the sunshine. Costola Photography was on hand to capture the special moments from the winery bridal shower, including a mini photo session with Andie’s fiancé.
Bride Danielle is a wedding planner by trade, but she was completely surprised by this greenhouse bridal shower, planned by her mother, bridesmaids and mother-in-law. Her creative and talented friends crafted almost every detail by hand, from the carnation garland behind the dessert table to the custom coasters to the cake pops and cupcakes dotting the dessert table! The light and bright conservatory of the Madison Hotel made for a perfect setting, with sparkling crystal chandeliers and hanging greenery creating a secret garden vibe. We love the wine bottle wishing well, where guests brought a bottle of wine for the couple, as well as the honeymoon gift board sharing adventures awaiting the couple, like a two-day elephant trek!
For this unique shower, bridesmaid and videographer Kaylyn of Pulley Productions recruited some of her favorite Oklahoma vendors to throw a gorgeous rustic barn bridal shower for best friend Kasee. My favorite unique touch was the mobile boutique, Cargo Room, that Kaylyn brought out for the day. When the guests arrived, they were ushered into the shop to find their look for the event, each choosing a gorgeous lace purple or navy dress to wear for the shower. The result was some pretty stunning pictures taken in the fields surrounding McGranahan Barn. A beautiful handmade wood farm table was set with vintage china and the guests enjoyed a picture-perfect spread of treats, including mini blackberry pies and chocolate-dipped macaroons. With a copper Moscow mule mug in hand, the ladies also crafted flower crowns to complete their outfits. I can’t get over all the stunning little details in this shower, gorgeously captured by Alex Dugan Photography. Check out the full list of fabulous vendors below.

For this glam take on a fiesta bridal shower, design studio Modern Pulp channeled bride Claudette’s love of pink and gold into a backyard fiesta filled with color and style. Guests selected one of three different flavors from the sangria bar and topped their vintage pink goblet or copper mug with a selection of fresh fruits. A stunning dessert spread, including cactus cookies and dessert tacos, offered plenty of sweet treats. My favorite detail? The unique rock cactus bar that allowed guests to create their own party favor. Plus, you now have the perfect hashtag for your event: #tacoboutashower! Photographer Christy Swanberg beautifully captured the joy on bride Claudette’s face as she rounded the corner to find this pretty little shower waiting.
