Whether you always wanted to have an old fashioned tea party or breakfast is your favorite time of day, using your favorite hobbies and themes to create a fabulously fun and unique bridal shower is gaining momentum in the wedding world. From wine tasting to vacations and even something as simple as a backyard picnic, bespoke bridal showers are great fun and make great memories (and pictures!). And, because you’re not the one planning your own bridal shower, it’s always a good idea to make sure whoever is planning it knows what you’re thinking of. Having a nice coffee or lunch date with the “planning committee” for your bridal bash to throw around some ideas is a great and informal way to let everyone know what themes you’ve been dreaming of!

The second pick for the girls ties in with the first one. Remember how I said a fabulous and unique bridal shower makes for great photos? Well, that’s where the trend of friendship photos are coming from! Of course you will have pictures with all your bridesmaids at your wedding, but a great way to grab even more photo gems is to plan the new trend of a friendship photo shoot. The girls featured above threw a fantastic vintage swimwear bridal shower, and you can see just how amazing their photos turned out! It’s a fun way to break out of the boring shower mold, make memories with your best friends that you can capture on film and it helps get bridesmaids that might not know each other very well acquainted! With all those benefits, it just might be worth hiring a photographer to shoot or keep it simple by bringing along a camera for all of you to take turns shooting with!

From your shower to the morning of your wedding to your reception, having a signature drink for each occasion is a trend that’s been taking hold for some time! Whether they’re alcoholic or not, something yummy to sip on is always a plus. From sangria and candy infused vodka to fresh squeezed orange juice, your signature sips can be a special treat for everyone! And, it’s even better if your drinks look as fantastic as they taste! Dress up your drinks with glitter rim glasses, fruit and mint infused ice cubes or cute paper straws to make a statement with whatever your signature sips may be.

Giving a perfect and personal present to your bridal party is a new wedding must – but that doesn’t mean it has ruin your wedding budget! From a signature tea (which fits perfectly in our Mini Glass Bottles with Corks) to our beautiful Tea Rose Personalized Handkerchief, personal touches on presents are full of charm and emotion and this is why they’ve taken hold. Even filling a nice purse, like our Vintage Style Evening Bag with a few “day of” goodies to give to your bridal party as you get ready together shows how much you care. If you want to go the extra step, sharpen your embroidery skills by putting simple initials of each girl inside her clutch (or ask your family for some help – Grandma’s and Aunts are my recommendations!).

My final pick is a newer trend that is just starting to shine, patterned bridesmaid outfits! From playful printed dresses to skirts and shirts, print is a fun way to play with the look of your bridal party and match your wedding colors! With an endless amount of options, your imagination is the limit! Pick from flirty florals to modern color blocking for an added pop in your wedding parties wardrobe!
