Best Places in New York City for Wedding Receptions

I spent all of yesterday afternoon/evening doing something I LOVE – party planning! The mother of one of my wedding clients for later this year asked if I could *help* her put together a few ideas for their bridal shower. Seeing as how I love all things creative, I was on that project in a matter of minutes! I put together 4 themes that would be fun to photograph and would leave a lasting impression on the ladies who are attending. Just short of midnight, I concluded my project, only to realize that the date of the shower is a day that I am already booked with another wedding. So after all my planning, I won’t even be able to be there to see one of these 4 visions come to life…and to photograph it! MAJOR bummer!

So you tell me, which of these is your favorite?

Theme #1 – “How sweet it is to be loved by you” bridal shower

Dress code: Your brightest colored cocktail dress and/or high heels!

Creative ideas: A rented cotton candy machine.

Theme #2 – “Old-fashioned lemonade” bridal shower (note: this theme was inspired by Justin and Mary from their recent workshop, which I was able to help a bit with)

Dress code: All guests must wear something yellow (dress, shoes, necklace, headband, nail polish, etc)

Creative idea: Make a photo booth out of a lemonade stand for all guests to get their picture taken.

Theme #3 – “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” bridal shower

Dress code: Favorite party dress, and lots of jewelry

Creative idea: Request that guests wrap their gift in tiffany blue paper and a white ribbon.

Theme #4 – “A weekend in Paris” bridal shower

Dress code: Little black dress and your favorite set of pearls!

Creative ideas: For invitations, send “passports” (see picture above) to begin setting the tone and theme for all the guests. Have a native French speaker come in and teach all the women how to say a few key phrases in French.

    I like the “How sweet it is to be loved by you” theme. That’s probably because of my sweet tooth 😉

    I also like the theme, “How sweet it is to be loved by you”! Very colorful and just fun!

    Did you make the Passport Invitations for the French inspired tea Party, or did you find them online? I want to do this party for my son’s mother in law for her birthday in June!
