Bridal Shower Style Party

Our bridal shower style party types take fashion as the inspiration.  We use dress, decor, desserts, and drinks to set the party tone.  Just as every woman has her own sense of style, every bride can have her own standout event.

Your bride's taste and the color scheme you choose are important. They determine the type of feeling you want the bridal shower to convey. The location and time of day can help set the mood, as will the invited guests.

• What fashion type is your bride?

Select Your Type Of Event

Here's the fun part!

You are going to do a Cupcakes & Cocktails bridal shower style party. This is a simple concept that sets a chic atmosphere. Women generally like to have a sweet dessert with a beverage, and mingle. You can offer alcoholic and/or nonalcoholic options. You will have a matching color scheme display of cupcakes & cocktails at your bridal shower style party.

It would be ideal to arrange the cupcakes in a cupcake tower or tiered dessert shelves. You should also use clear-colored glasses for all beverages.  In addition, you may present the bride with a designer glass.  Then, use your theme's color scheme for cocktail napkins, small plates, and the table linens.
Guests are invited to dress in the fashion style that you select below.  Everyone is given a coordinating cocktail ring (like the floral stretch rings pictured) as a favor to wear when they arrive.  A cocktail ring is also given to the bride when she enters her event. It can be a special touch to give her a unique showcase ring as a stylish gift. The pearl and rhinestone detailing on the Maise flower above makes a great right handed accessory for the wedding day as well.

*** Style Tip:  A popular fashion trend is to have a monochromatic party. This means to have a party using all the same color. An example of this is showcased on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Kyle Richards has an annual "White Party" where all her cast mates were in attendance dressed accordingly.  You could do a "Classic White", "Romantic Pink", "Dramatic Red", or "Bohemian Yellow" bridal shower style party.
