Happy Friday, ladies + gents! Having just been thrown a second (SURPRISE!) bridal shower, today’s sponsored post is especially close to my heart!
When I was planning a shower for my future sister-in-law a few months ago, I knew I wanted to do something different than the usual lined book to record guests’ sweet notes of love and encouragement. Had I known about Petal Wishes, my brainstorming might have been over before it began! Here’s the whole set-up so you can see what we’re looking at:
Founder Michelle came up with the first Petal Wishes bouquet for her future sister in law’s shower (fun!). The best new ideas come from personal necessity, don’t you think? Shower guests can write messages to the bride, or wishes for her new life as a married lady, on the blank petals, and then each petal is slipped into “flowers” in the bouquet.
The Petal Wishes gals encourage brides to customize their bouquets with personal trimmings, and I think it would look extra sweet to tie a cascade of ribbons plucked from shower presents around the handle. A little old, a little new!
I think my favorite part of the Petal Wishes bouquet is that not only does it allow a bride’s closest friends and family members to shower her with good wishes, it allows her to physically carry those wishes down the aisle with her – and that can be a powerful thing! I also love that the bouquet has a life beyond the big day: with the addition of “wish clips,” the petals can be snapped together and mounted into a shadow box frame, meaning the good wishes will be a part of your life long past your wedding day. Check out a video of the process here.
