We love us a good bridal shower activity. (Remember our Amanda’s flower arranging lesson? So much fun.) Well this little shoot from Spindle Photography, Kathleen Cook, and Invision Events was based on the idea of a DIY shibori station. Now what exactly is shibori, you ask? Shibori is an indigo tie dying method originating in Japan. It’s totally stunning, and you can click on over to our DIY section for the tutorial after looking at this shibori-inspired party scene.
That centerpiece just made our jaws drop a little bit! Gorgeous!
Indigo painted macarons, anyone? Yum.
Kelly Cummings from Spindle Photography says, For brides interested in throwing their own shibori party, we recommend following our lead and bringing some extra white cotton items for guests to dye and take home. We opted for onesies and boxers (or “party pants” if you will), to gift to friends and our spouses.
Thanks to everyone below for sharing this beautiful blue shoot with us!

In case this morning’s rehearsal dinner fiesta wasn’t enough, we’ve got more colorful Cinco de Mayo goodness coming your way. Now let us tell you, there’s literally no way you can sit there looking at this shoot from Ben Q. Photography without a big ol’ smile creeping across your face. From the neon invites by Blue Eye Brown Eye to the bright and poppy Bows and Arrows florals to the funfetti layer cake from Cakewalk Bake Shop, there’s just too much fun stuff going on here.
Because three piñatas are better than one!
Yep, definitely pinning that one to our hair board.
And what’s a fiesta without some giant balloons.
Thanks to the talented folks below for sending this shoot our way!

Buenos dias and happy Cinco de Mayo, Cakies! Such a fun way to start off the week, for sure. In the spirit of Cinco de Mayo, we’re sharing a bright and colorful rehearsal fiesta from photog Megan Clouse and planner Julia Lake. The wedding itself was more of a formal affair, so the couple chose to do something fun and lighthearted the evening before. That meant loads of colorful papel picado banners, hay bales draped in colorful serapes, a taco truck to fill everyone’s bellies, and a mariachi band, which led to vigorous dancing from the groom’s Latin side of the family.
Last night before becoming Mr. and Mrs.!
This gorgeous glassware was filled with red and white sangria. #yum
So much fun!
