When an entire styled shoot is based on the intricate details of a Claire Pettibone dress, you know it will be nothing short of magical. This modern midsummer's night dream Wedding Inspiration from Kelsey Combe photography is a modern classic, full of gorgeous florals, organic styling and thoughtful details. We're always in awe of what can happen when a group of talented, creative (and local!) wedding professionals come together, and this shoot at Rockefeller State Park is certainly no exception. Brides + Grooms, get ready to be inspired!Read More
Welcome Bag: Fill a canvas tote with beauty products no girl could resist. From face masks to Essie nail polish and even Laduree macaroons. Even better: include items that the girls could use throughout the day or weekend getaway!
The Food: Keep this simple! You can’t go wrong with these mini baguettes from Perfect Picnic – both adorable and delicious! The best part: your guests can pick them up and go, sans plates and flatware.
The Floats: Oversized pool floats are all the rage and truly make any pool look so chic. Whether you have one or ten, online sites like White Elephant Designs and FUNBOY have more options then you’ll know what to do with. Don’t forget the pump!
The “Bride” Stuff: This one is for the girls celebrating a bachelorette. Not all brides care for the sashes, pins, tiaras, t-shirts, etc. To make sure your bride still stands out, try offering her a more chic option like this bride choker from Erin Dana or customized beach hat from White Elephant Designs. Another perk: she can reuse them for her honeymoon!
The Style: You’ll likely be lounging poolside all day or weekend, so remind the girls to pack their cover ups. These vibrant pieces from Camilla will definitely add a pop of color to your photos! To make your girls feel included in every way, you can also fill their welcome totes with flip flops, faux floral crowns, hair ties from Love Mia + Co., and fun temporary tattoos! (Just be mindful of where you place them if the wedding is soon after the party – you don’t want to have funny-looking tanlines on her wedding day!)
