Southern Weddings Magazine

This weekend is Earth Day, belles! And with all the stunning natural beauty that surrounds us in the South, we thought it would behoove us to pause and take a minute to appreciate the majestic Lowcountry marshes, the romantic Spanish moss dripping from live oaks, and the endless fields of blue bonnets, to name just a few distinctly Southern gems.

We also have this eco-conscious bridal shower inspiration with which to celebrate! Photographer Sarah DeShaw partnered with Kendra from One Love Organics to put together this pretty inspiration. Wouldn’t something like this be perfect not just for a bridal shower, but for a low-key bachelorette or pre-wedding pampering session, too?

Love the idea of wrapping gifts in burlap – and of pairing the burlap with shiny satin ribbon to add a feminine touch!

If you’re ready for some Southern-style relaxation, we’ve got just the thing for you – a sweet tea pedicure!

Yum, don’t you think?
