When bride-to-be Whitney’s mom got in touch with us about planning a wedding shower for her, we were thrilled. With Whitney’s focus on her and her fiancés upcoming wedding, we were excited to surprise Whitney with an evening that was all about celebrating her!
Whitney’s mom envisioned an evening that was fun and full of details that her daughter would love. A mix of metallics and pretty florals set the stage at the Vancouver Loden Penthouse suite for a bohemian inspired and yet sophisticated cocktail party. Guests sipped champagne while making floral crowns and having custom henna tattoos drawn on their hands. By the end of the evening the ladies were dancing up a storm and introductions had been made for the next big event to come, Whitney and Graham’s wedding in Mexico this February!
A chance to celebrate the bride-to-be, wedding showers have come a long way! A modern shower can be hosted morning, noon or night, in locations ranging from a brides favourite brunch spot, to a backyard for a fiesta or in this case, a swanky penthouse in the city. The key to a successful shower, in our opinion, is to make it personal for the bride, and to create plenty of opportunities for the guests to relax and get to know each other (as many may be meeting for the first time).
From the bride:
“When my mom hired Spread Love Events to do my shower I knew it would be beautiful. My mom has amazing taste already and Spread Love’s events are always spectacular so I was so excited to see what they had planned. When I walked into the room I was completely blown away. There were flowers everywhere and beautiful Moroccan poufs – the decor was amazing! Two of my favourite things were the Flower Crown table where all the girls got to make their own crown for the night, and the custom henna tattoos. I loved that everyone had something fun to do and it let people who didn’t know everyone get to chat about their henna or flower crown to a stranger and by the end of the night everyone was best friends. Even Graeme’s Nanna got a henna tattoo which just made my night. It was such a beautiful gift from my mom to host it, and there was so much thought put into every detail – I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect night.”
Thank you Lyn for inviting us to be part of creating such a special evening with you!
