Bridal Shower Ideas With a Flower Bar

My mom and I co-hosted a bridal shower for my sister at her high school alma mater (inside one of the library rooms) and wanted to add a few touches to the event to make it extra enjoyable for guests. The flower bar set-up for guests to arrange their own mini bouquet to take home was probably the biggest hit (the ombré pink photo backdrop set up along one wall was a lot of fun too).

Photos from the bridal shower are below, along with the names of the Massachusetts-based vendors that we hired and/or links to some of the items we purchased.

PINK OFF-THE-SHOULDER DRESS: It’s from the Gal Meets Glam Collection and no longer available but see similar here ($30!), here and here for my pregnant gals! I also like this under $75 one.

In you like the off-the-shoulder silhouette but want something other than light pink, check out this beautiful light blue applique dress, this floral plus size dress or this dress which comes in magenta and a bunch of other shades.

Some splurge-worthy dresses from Revolve that I absolutely love are this lilac eyelet one, this one, this blush tie-front dress and this one. This mint Free People long-sleeved dress is nice if you want your arms covered (I assume you want to go down a size in this one).

I’ve had my eye on this floral dress for awhile and this $89 bubble sleeve one is similar and also from ASTR The Label. If you’re a size M, check out this blueish-lilac Tularosa dress marked down to $56! This short-sleeve floral lace one is also perfect for a bridal shower (but sizes are going fast).

NUDE STRAPPY HEELS

I had multiple guests ask me what I was wearing on my chest and arms. I love a loose shimmer powder applied with a pouf like this one or this one.

GAME IDEA: While my sister was opening her gifts, we set a timer to go off every five minutes. We awarded a prize (a mini Bobbi Brown makeup palette, a candle or a diffuser) to the person whose gift she was opening at that moment.
