Bright, modern wedding ideas

Of course a bridal shower is always about *you guessed it* the bride, but it’s easy to fall into the food-games-gifts tradition (though, don’t get us wrong, that’s a fantastic trio too). But Fleurie Flower Studio + Nikki Martinez Photography broke the mold a bit when they opted for a few unexpected elements, like a letter from the groom and an event design based off of colorful paletas.

Wouldn’t it be fun to bring in a secret letter from the groom-to-be for the bride to read? Such a special little surprise.

And remember the festive paletas we posted about on Monday? Clearly we gotta get our hands on some.

The bride got to pose for some romantic portraits too… A must if you have someone photographing the event or a creative gal pal or two.

Nikki says, The bride is actually newlywed, but this shoot was just focused on her and all the fun details! My favorite memory of the day was having the bride run back and forth in the open yard. We all got a good laugh out of it, and it just made for so much fun! It was such a great day.


Thanks to the guys below for sharing all these fabulous ideas today.
