Bestie’s Bridal Shower Part 2Mar22016


This is a fun post, and one that I’ve been working on for awhile! In co-planning my best friend Nicole’s Pretty-in-Pink-New-York-Chic Bridal Shower, I’ve had a ton of fun figuring out the theme, and the decor that will go with it! I put together this mood-board to share with the bride and her mom (who is also planning it with me), and decided to make a blog post going over how you can also achieve the look!

For the full list, click on the “Read More” link below, or click on the image above! Much love!

As I talked about in Part 1 of this blog series, I’ve been working on the invitation suite and event design for my best friend Nicole’s Bridal Shower coming up this June. I love party planning in general, and working on the invitations for such an event has also been a blast for me! Since we have some guests who live out of state (including the bride), we sent off magnetic Save The Dates, which are included in the list below.

A lot of the items on the list are things I’ve owned for awhile, but I’ve tried to link out to as much as possible. Have fun shopping! I’d love to hear your thoughts on everything in the comments, or if you’ve planned a bridal shower yourself, and have any fun tips!
