What to wear to a wedding? This is all we hear this time of year, can I wear a black dress? Can I wear a white dress? What about off white? Is an open back appropriate in church? There are so many old traditions, so many new types of weddings and so many different cultures in Canada it’s hard to make just one dress code for wedding season. So we say wear what you love, something you think is appropriate for your wedding situation and if it happens to be white, add a lot of other colours and accessories so no one will mistake you for a bride.
By adding a bright belt or ribbon to define your waist and layering with a kimono or some kind of jacket or sweater will really transform a dress into an outfit, or a special look for a wedding celebration.
We love to put together a little Bridal Shower, especially for someone we have known for so long and we know will love it!
Flowers come first! They are so important when throwing a party for someone, they make everything come together, we put little vintage milk glass vases on every table and counter space and made sure to have a huge bouquet on the dessert table.
Second is Dessert, a mini wedding cake is the perfect focal point, and a dramatic macron tower adds some sparkle to our dessert table.
Third is the decor, we love the little details like a gold tail on a huge balloon (or three for this special occasion) and glitter inside the balloons to help us add sparkle to the wedding shower. At this shower we added a few banners that say things like, “congratulations”, “sweet table”, and “bridal shower”. We also added a few varieties of polka-dot straws for the pink champagne.
Fourth is food, and the best part is working together to get it all set up!
Tip number five is friends, don’t overcrowd the shower with too many people, keep it intimate so it becomes more personal and memorable!
