When you are the matron of honor, there are many duties for you to do, the bridal shower is usually one of them. If it is, you need to get the guest list from the bride and maybe just get some ideas of what she might want. You don’t have to involve her in the planning, it’s more your party for her instead, so do something that you think represents her and what she might like. I had the pleasure of doing my brides bridal shower last month, and her one request was a Tiffany’s theme, so I tried to go all out.
I ordered custom Tiffany’s boxes from a seller on Etsy, custom cupcakes by LA Cake, the girls all wore black dresses except for the bride, we had fake cigarettes, black sunglasses and pearls for the bridesmaids.
To top it off, the bride is a huge football fan, so LA Cake also made me a custom Colts Football cake for her.
And I ordered custom M&M’s with photos of the couple on them!
To finish off the details I had sent recipe cards to everyone along with their invitation to the shower and asked that they provide their favorite recipes for the bride to start her collection, which was huge hit!
We had lots of her favorite foods: 3 different kinds of sliders, sushi, shrimp cocktail, and of course lots of dessert!
Thank you to Oakmont Country Club in Glendale, CA for hosting such a fabulous event for us!
