If you have been following FLM for a while than you know how much I love event planning. Recently, my mom and I planned, organized and threw a gorgeous bridal shower for my sister in law to be.
Planning an event for someone else can be a little more difficult then planning one for yourself. You want the event to reflect and represent that person and their likes. The first thing that I decided on with Melanie's shower was the theme. I wanted her shower to be completely different from their wedding, and I also wanted to incorporate details and elements that really reflected her.
I actually decided on her invitation first, I knew that I wanted to add floral elements. but yet keep it vintage and elegant. Hence my theme- vintage elegance. Lace, florals, neutrals and gold tones were the palette for the stunning shower. I really revolved everything around the invitation and integrated the stationary into the menus, the seating chart, table names and thank you tags. I am so happy that I decided to do that as everything just looked so fabulous and came together so beautifully. So when you first start your planning, really focus on the theme and what you want the overall look and feel to be!
Stay tuned for some more tips and photos from Melanie's stunning shower!
