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!
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!
This gorgeous styled shoot at a Nantucket farm first caught my eye when I saw the greenhouse decked out in crystal chandeliers and paper umbrellas—a perfectly eclectic mix of industrial and antique. The color palette of deep plum, forest green and sparkling gold is a little bit regal and totally chic, running through the invitations, florals and fashion (loving every one of these flowy dresses). And let’s be real: Who doesn’t want a wedding waffle (in adorable heart shapes!)? Thanks to photographer Brea McDonald for sharing this stunning shoot!
