UBAN CONTEMPORARY | THROW THE PERFECT SHOWER!

IS THIS YOUR FIRST and possibly only time in the role of Maid of Honor? No doubt you're feeling the pressure and you truly want to uphold your sacred duties to the bride. A big part of how she will look back on the experience with you by her side is of course determined by how successfully you pull off the bridal shower. So how do you plan and execute the perfect little part? Don't worry! We have you covered. 

First and foremost, leave your pride at the door. This season of life is all about her. There's reason she chose you to be the one right next to her on the big day... you're her bestie! And as such, she trusts that you'll put her tastes and presences before your own when planning the prenuptial celebration. Our first tip is that you weren't meant to do this alone. Professionals exist for a reason- hire them and let them do what they do best! Designers, caterers, florists... who says they're just for the wedding?! They are skilled at pulling necessary elements together for all types of events. Use them and make yourself look good. Make sure you book a professional photographer so the bride gets a sweet reminder of everything you did for her whenever she looks at the photos. 

Try to incorporate decorations and style that are common with the wedding so each event is cohesive. However, don't be afraid to also use other elements that the bride loves by maybe couldn't include in her wedding theme. 

Lastly, dress it up! If Carrie Bradshaw can stroll the streets of Manhattan for days in her Manolo's, surely you and your guests can get perfectly primped for an afternoon. This is quite possibly the one and only bridal shower you will throw your very best friend. Get all dolled up and ask guests to do the same so that when the leading lady arrives, she is welcome into a room filled with the most beautiful, loving people in her life.
