A Shower To Remember // Styled Bridesmaid Photo Shoot at The Loft

We’ve all heard of bridal photo shoots. I mean, been there, done that. But a bridesmaid photo shoot? Talk about genius.

Not only is it unexpected and fun, but could you imagine what a sweet and memorable gift this would make for your BFF bride-to-be? A photo album filled with gorgeous images of her besties all dressed up in their bridesmaids dresses would surely win the award for best day-of present! Fair warning: have those tissues handy, this thoughtful gift is sure to bring on the waterworks! Best to gift BEFORE hair and makeup. Just sayin…

Featured in Ceremony Magazine, this fun and feminine photo shoot also makes for the perfect bridal shower inspiration! As Ceremony Magazine suggests, these glamorous details would not only be adored by the bride and bridal party, but would also be a sure crowd pleaser!

The ultimate crowd pleaser? A dessert bar of course! You definitely can’t go wrong with a spread like this—loads of sugary confections in a rainbow of buttery pastels, matching rock candy sticks, adorable cones of caramel corn, and all atop a gorgeous vintage dresser to boot! I don’t think anyone would fault you for hanging out here the whole time…we know we’d be right there with you!

Let’s not forget the bubbly! Arranging to have hand-crafted cocktails served in platinum rimmed glasses is party planning at its best! Want to take it one step further? Match the beverage color to the party’s theme like these soft peach concoctions. Yum!

We all know what truly makes a party spectacular—it’s all in the details. From the sequined linens, to the lush floral arrangements and coordinating bouquets, to the table top decor and signage, all these details come together to make one perfectly themed bridal shower. Or, you know, bride gift from her besties!
