Katrina Attends a Bridal Shower
by Katrina Mitzeliotis
While bridal showers are definitely one of the wedding traditions that have been around for as long as most of us can remember, I’m always impressed by the unique wedding ideas that people plan to make the day creative and fun for guests.
This past weekend, I attended an afternoon bridal shower, where guests mingled and sipped on white sangria. From the bow-tie pasta to the refreshing beverages, the event was so summer-appropriate. The table was decorated with bright pink floral arrangements and adorable, mini-manicure sets and macaroons—the perfect take-away treat!
Rather than play a slew of games, guests watched the bride-to-be respond to questions her fiancé had already answered. After she gave her response, a video recording of her future groom shared his answer. This cute activity reminded me of the ‘newlywed’ game—and it also allowed those in attendance to sit back and have fun!
At the shower, I opted for a bright dress that kept me feeling cool and looking chic in the heat. I paired the dress with long, dangling earrings to dress up my look.
I love the romantic feel of the pair below—and you can easily re-wear them for a glam night out!
You also can never go wrong with a festive dress. It’s such a summertime staple—and it works so well with a pair of wedges. I love the stylish, yet classic, vibe you can achieve with the pair of wedges below.
