Hampton’s Inspired Bridal Shower
Lexi Haslam of Lexington and Co. describes Moneeza’s colourful day…
…”Melissa D’Souza from Ripe Resolution came to me in hopes to plan an exciting bridal shower for one of her closest friends Moneeza. Melissa wanted something unique, interactive and colourful with with a touch of class that truly represented the bubbly bride-to-be. She is a ball of energy and as we began brainstorming ideas, we felt that a colourful Hampton’s Inspired Styled Bridal Shower would be perfect for Moneeza.
The inspiration for the styled bridal shower came from “all the fun things that summer brings” like cotton candy, tennis, weekend getaways, croquet, sweet beverages, and so much more. Moneeza was ecstatic when she walked through the door, truly surprised.
We didn’t want to offer typical bridal shower games because they’ve been done over and over and over again. Instead, we decided that adding interactive stations to the party would add excitement and truly provide an awesome guest experience [#SundayFunday].
The ladies were amazed at the adorable cotton candy cart by Fancy Pufs that wheeled in, spun some deliciously awesome flavours and rolled out. We also had a photo booth that I designed and set-up with gorgeous flowers from Delight Floral + Design that added the perfect finishing touch. All of the ladies were lining up, taking selfies and getting cozy in the set. Our third interactive was an elaborate and lush sweet station that I designed with the most delicious treats and square cake made by one of our favourites The Cake Baker .
Melissa wanted to add one more surprise, an editorial photo shoot for Moneeza and her hubby-to-be. We picked out and styled their clothing from head to toe, picked up Hampton-Inspired props and once the guests headed home for the afternoon we did a one hour photo shoot. It allowed the couple to have fun with each other, flirt and get even more excited about their special day.
I think we had just as much fun as the bride did – maybe more! As a planner it is always a gift when you can brighten someones day and make them feel special – that’s why we do what we do. Melissa not only photographed the day beautifully, but we were a true team in the coordination and planning. It’s always exciting to work with new vendors and see each others sides of work through a different lens.”
