With so much attention placed on wedding ceremonies and receptions, it’s nice to take a break and gaze at some design inspiration from the oft-neglected bridal shower. This bridal shower shoot sent to us by Edyta of Edyta Szyszlo Photography is full of color, delicious treats, and amazing decoration ideas. Everything comes together so perfectly for perhaps the sweetest shower we’ve seen yet!
Says Edyta: This is a fun, quirky and deliciously charming bridal shower inspired by all things girlie and gelato — a perfect theme for a spring party! This shoot is full of handmade tissue flowers with real flower accents, tissue flower bracelet corsages for each girl, DIY photobooth backdrop of spray-painted & strung wooden spoons for a fun portraits, custom paper good labels for the gelato containers/invitations/name cards/menus, layers of colors and patterns as table settings complimented by bright poppies in glass jars, and a gelato bar of fruitful toppings and fizzy prosecco floats!
From Edyta and the ladies of Enjoy Events Co.: We were inspired by gelateria style with a modern flair. Warm weather, spring time scents and the craving for a refreshing treat makes for the perfect day-time bridal shower. Seeking inspiration from old European street cafes mixed with vibrant ideas, we chose bright hues to compliment a clean and refreshing palate of white furniture. We focused on creating a fun atmosphere with colorful details for the sweet tooth-at-heart girlie get together. Our goal was to design homespun decor that anyone could re-create, such as DIY tissue flowers, multi-layered place settings and simple flower pieces in recycled jars. The ladies wore custom tailored frocks influenced by Parisian and Italian throwback styles with a hip twist. Custom gelato flavor labels, name cards and menus add a personal touch for the lady of the party. From a DIY monochromatic backdrop behind the gelato bar mixed with cute striped dishware settings, any bride-to-be would love yummy scoops of gelato and refreshing prosecco floats to satisfy her spring time craving!
