Emily and I were chatting about bridal showers on our road trip home from Charleston last week, and we agreed wholeheartedly that they’re one of the sweetest pre-wedding traditions. A beautiful shower is such a fun way to make a bride feel extra loved and special as she prepares for her wedding, which is why we’re excited to share today’s inspiration! A fabulous team of Florida vendors (including our Blue Ribbon Vendor, Ashton Events) designed this bridal shower shoot around the theme of “gingham and bunnies,” which struck a lovely balance between summery brights and soft feminine details. And yes, there were real bunnies involved–adorable!
Thanks so much to Amalie Orrange for sharing this fun shoot with us!
Those bow napkins holders are actually bracelets that doubled as favors–what a sweet surprise for the lucky guests!
From Laura of Ashton Events:
This shoot is a blend of a crisp, clean, and bright palette combined with charming vintage touches. We brought in live bunnies (you should have heard the laughter and delight that ensued!), and also used bunnies consistently throughout the decor. One of my favorite bunny elements was the miniature gold bunnies that guests could put in their teacups at the seed bar! It was a subtle touch, but something fun for the guests to take home.
The menu was comprised of several light and refreshing salads. We couldn’t stop eating the watermelon and basil salad that Good Food Catering made! We also served watermelon and mint slushies–they were the perfect summertime treat!
