It was a fun-filled night a few weeks back with our friends at Williams-Sonoma. We kicked-off the evening with a champagne toast to our brides-to-be. With wedding locations across the Midwest, we had questions aplenty. Meghan McCarthy Photography captured the stunning details from the watercolor menus from Akela Clark Designs and breathtaking lollipops from Flour & Fig to the jaw-dropping floral from Flourishes & Blooms.
While we enjoyed dinner from Blue Plate Catering, I answered a multitude of planning questions ranging from theme design to favor ideas. Speaking of favor ideas, Blissfully Broke was in attendance as well with her super fun gift boxes that are perfect for bridesmaid gifts, hostess gifts or gifts for mom. The night was full of inspiration, fun and plenty of Instagram boomerangs.
Following dinner, we kicked-off shopping! Each bride received a personal consultation to help build their registries. Everyone’s different. We conquered all registry challenges: whether you’ve lived with your boyfriend for years and want to upgrade your mismatching plates; are waiting to move in until marriage, or have some home goods but need to stock up in other areas. My favorite part was celebrating the night with beautiful gift bags compiled with little treats from all of the vendors as well as a generous gift from Williams-Sonoma. I may also be a little biased because I love our ‘Girl Meets Party’ tissue paper from NoIssue as well. We can’t wait to host another fun event where we can unleash the vision of each of our brides, sip on champagne and celebrate all the fun to come. Won’t you join us next time?
