Sarah Seven wedding dress

All the unique spring color schemes popping up lately sure are impressive, don’t you think? (Yesterday’s modern Mexican ideas + these bohemian bouquets come to mind.) These black dresses Jessica Burke + Twigss Floral Studio decided on to channel traditional Spanish vibes definitely lend themselves to many accent color ideas, but once we saw the colors in the big bouquet Twigss whipped up, we knew they’d chosen an impeccable palette.

Addison of Twigss says, We did quite a bit of research on Spanish wedding traditions to make sure the shoot felt very true to the Spanish wedding culture. We are very interested in different cultures wedding traditions so this was a fun one for us. An old traditional Spanish wedding custom is for the bride to wear a black wedding gown which for a Catholic bride meant that she was committed to her marriage till death due them part.

We also knew we wanted to incorporate a mantilla and peineta which are a floor length veil and large ornate comb for a really stunning and different beauty look. We used blooms that had pops of bright color to reflect the vibrant Spanish culture and chose to use a neutral and natural palette for the table settings.

You all saw our DIY bachelorette party survival kit on le blog yesterday, right? Seriously every product featured there: Major want. We recently teamed up with Freixenet Cava to style a wildly fun bachelorette party, and after the survival kit, the ideas kept flowing. So why stop there?

We enlisted Beijos Events to translate our concept, which started with doctoring up these already gorgeous bottles of bubbly with a little personalization. Gold calligraphy by Twinkle & Toast should do the trick, we think!

The variety of pinks sprinkled throughout worked so well with the black and gold of the Freixenet bottles, keeping the theme super playful. We envisioned a sophisticated yet beautifully chaotic environment, girls letting loose and celebrating their friend about to tie the knot.

If you haven’t sipped Freixenet before, a bachelorette party is the perfect time to try their Spanish Cava, (which after over 100 years is still completely harvested by hand). Or while testing out this yummy Sunset Mimosa recipe they created for us in the video by Audrey Alba Films below…

Sunset Mimosa

Ingredients:

3 ½ oz Freixenet Cava
5 cut strawberries
3 ½ oz orange juice
ice

Instructions:

Blend orange juice, ice, and strawberries until smooth
Pour Freixenet Cava into chilled flute
Pour in the fruit blend
Stir gently so as not to lose the bubbles
Garnish with a strawberry or orange slice

Yum! Thanks to Megan Welker and everyone below who helped us with this fun shoot. Head over to the Freixenet’s Pinterest to get inspired to sparkle on your wedding day.

DIY bachelorette survival kit with Freixenet | 100 Layer Cake

You and your besties don’t have to have a big Vegas weekend planned to request a little bubbly for the bachelorette party. In fact, an exciting night of laughter and fun practically begs for some goodies that each gal in the bridal party can snack, sip, wear, and take home. The recipe for a bride well celebrated. And all the little gifts in this DIY bachelorette party survival kit we whipped up… So good, so good. Freixenet Cava provided tons of inspo with their cute mini matte black bottles, and our friends at Beijos Events helped us bring our vision to life with the styling.

PS You better believe we dreamt up a whole party design around this concept… Check back tomorrow for more pics by Megan Welker.
