I know I've mentioned this about a million times, but I absolutely love weddings! Photographing them is fun, but being a guest and engaging with the couple and family on a more personal level is what makes a wedding memorable. This is why I especially enjoy bridal showers! You get to know the bride's friends and family a little bit better. Then when you see each other at the wedding again, you feel a special camaraderie that only a bridal shower can foster.
My childhood pal, Melissa (pictured above and also here), is getting married next month, and she's having a bridal shower... I'm sure. Fact is, this lovable girl is a procrastinator to the max and I know she'll send out invitations or invite texts 3 days before the fact. It's just how she is. Me? I plan in advance. I send out invites the moment I think of the idea. Which is why if I was planning her bridal shower, I would've hosted it 2 months ago. Now let me run with that idea for a moment...If I was hosting her bridal shower it would be a tea party/luncheon theme because her intended hails from across the pond, and plus Melissa and I loved tea parties when we were kids (and even now!) The following pictures are from a tea party I hosted a few months ago. These images would serve as inspiration for Melissa's Tea Party/Bridal Shower.
Friends... Honestly? I'm thinking if I don't hear from Mellers by this weekend, I'm going to call her up and run my bridal shower ideas by her. Maybe I can make this party a reality. That's what friends are for after all!
