I love getting to write blogs about real brides – brides that are currently going through the motions of planning their wedding. When I saw Kimberly post a bunch of images from her bridal shower on Facebook, I had to talk to her! As I am planning my own bridal shower, I have been looking at Pinterest. But sometimes, it’s hard to envision it all coming together that beautifully. When I saw Kimberly’s post, I knew it was possible! Her bridal shower is 100% Pinterest-worthy! When we got chatting, I learned that Kim’s bridesmaids and aunts did everything themselves! Even the bath bombs. If you want to create a bridal shower like Kim’s, look out for links to products throughout. Check out our DIY bridal shower signs and games on Etsy here.

When asked what her favorite part about the shower was, she says, “My favorite part of the bridal shower was being able to spend time with family. My fiancé’s family are all from New York and it is extremely rare that both of our families get to be together at the same time.” Because everything was 1. DIY and 2. absolutely gorgeous, I also wanted to know which of all the incredible decorations were her favorite. She said she LOVED the centerpieces, “the flower was gorgeous and the rose gold mason jars really added a nice accent. Our accent color in the wedding is going to be rose gold as well.” I love that they matched the bridal shower theme to the wedding theme! We are going to try to do the same for our wedding and shower as well. She said the bath bombs that her maid of honor made were also a huge hit and so was the pedicure in a jar (what to include below).

Kim also gave me some really cool ideas for other brides’ bridal showers! She said they played the newlywed game. She had to answer questions about herself to try and match her fiancé’s answers. For every answer she got wrong, she had to stick a piece of bubblegum in her mouth! She says, “It was SO hilarious, I could barely even talk by the time the game was over. Not sure if that’s a good or bad thing because my fiancé said a lot of different answers than I did, but everyone sure got a kick out of it.”

One of her favorite moments of the shower was during gift opening. She says, “my aunt gave me the most emotional gift I’ve ever received in my life. My mom passed away over 9 years ago and she knows how hard it has been on me knowing that my mom isn’t able to be here for any of the most important times in my life. She had made me a pillow with my moms picture on it, and around her photo is lace that is made from her wedding dress. When I opened that gift the entire room, including me, was in tears. It was such an emotional, and sad, but beautiful moment.” How gorgeous is that?! Bridal showers are a great time to give personal and thoughtful gifts <3
I love that Kim’s shower included DIY projects, her family, funny games, and sweet moments like the one above. It sounds like the perfect bridal shower! The women who put together this event should be really proud of themselves. Congratulations to our bride-to-be, Kim! Thank you so much for allowing me to share about your beautiful and heartwarming bridal shower!
