My Très Chic Bridal Shower

bridal-shower-fashion-magazine-invitation


While girls often plan their dream weddings long before meeting their prince charming, last week I had my dream bridal shower and didn’t even see it coming!

The shower wasn’t a surprise party, but the amount of work that went into all of the beautiful and personalized details was astonishing.  I’ve been so focused on keeping calm and avoiding bridezilla mode that I’ve practically coasted since our engagement last October. Anytime someone has asked if I was stressed or nervous, (which has been a lot... a whole lot,) I would crack a big smile and assure them I’m cool as a cucumber. In typical Kelly fashion, up to this point, the only thing that really put me on edge was not finding the perfect dress to wear to the shower. (I bought two and one was never delivered. Exactly what nightmares are made of.)

When the morning of the shower rolled around everything became very real as my 8 a.m. alarm sounded. My first thought: Why am I awake at such an ungodly hour?? It’s Sunday! Second thought: Wait. I’m getting married (very soon)!

My best friend and Maid of Honor, Stephanie, is an attorney by day and pinterest-addicted party planner by night. Together with my mother and sister, they hosted the most stylish couture-inspired brunch that I could ever have hoped for. The afternoon was over in what felt like two blinks, but was filled with plenty of laughter, countless sweet moments, and most importantly, people that I love.  It’s good to be the bride, but it’s better to have great friends and family to celebrate these special moments with.

The GLAMSQUAD team showed up bright and early to take care of my bridal beauty so that I could relax. I asked hair stylist Vanessa for classic Hollywood waves like Blake Lively and she blew me away. (My hair looked almost this good for the rest of the week, too!) It was nice to just focus on enjoying the day while having my hair and makeup done by pros. Plus, I got to stay in my pajamas longer. Have you tried Glamsquad yet? It's like Uber for beauty! Use code KellyGlam for $25 off your next blow out thru 9/15.

Guests took home gift bags filled with Dylan's Candy Bar Chocolate, Glamsquad Gift Card, Beauty for Real Light Up Lip Gloss, and Sinful Colors Nail Polish.

I'm a sucker for anything personalized, but my own chocolate bar is literally the sweetest thing! Thanks to Dylan's Candy Bar for designing custom wrappers to match the girly event decor.

Fashion illustrator and personal friend Gissi (The Architect of Style) was responsible for creating the ultra chic magazine-inspired invitation. (Photo at top.) She was also on hand for the afternoon to gift guests with a personal sketch.

A fashion girl's bridal shower would not be complete without a toilet paper wedding dress competition! Can you guess which dress I chose as the winner?
