A relaxing alternative to a traditional bridal shower is spending the day getting pampered with your girlfriends, somewhere like Studio 290, and taking a fun calligraphy class inspired by Harper & Zoe! It’s not every day us girls get to get glammed up and share in a wedding planning experience with their bridesmaids. This brunch-time shower, designed by Something New For I Do, starts with hair and makeup sessions, followed by fabulous manis and pedis by Tippy Toes, while sipping on a bubbly peach bellini, noshing on yogurt parfaits and mini donuts from Da Vinci’s Donuts, and dishing out girl talk and wedding planning ideas, followed by digging into cake from Cakes By Carissa. We especially love the idea of sending the girls away with a sparkly soap favor, courtesy of Miss Shirley’s Soaps. Being pampered in a room full of bouquets from Gold & Bloom doesn’t hurt either. With an intimate nail day in our studio, bridal parties get to be pampered in private, rather than sharing the salon with other clients. Then when the girls are styled and polished from head to toe by Melissa & Co. Salon, our calligrapher teaches them the basics of pretty printing. Kelly Anne Photography was there to capture every moment of this ultimate girls day out for a bride and her bridesmaids.
