On Tuesday night we went out in the evening to shoot the June Tablescape which was a beautiful Bridesmaid Picnic amongst the lilac bushes. It’s a great way to ask will you be my bridesmaid! It is the next day, Wednesday and the photos are edited and I COULD NOT RESIST writing this blog post to share with you ASAP! That is 1 day photo turn around! Way to go LifeDotStyle Photography!! Not only did I get these photos immediately but they are incredible!
So onto the amazing Bridesmaid Picnic theme that took everyone’s breath away when they walked up to it. This one is extra special because I reached out to my favourite companies to help me put this together. I also was able to bring in my best girlies AKA “Bridesmaids” to do a photo shoot with and capture the awesomeness of the Bridesmaid Picnic.
The Fabulous Companies & Details That Made This Bridesmaid Picnic
Let’s talk photographers! There is nothing like having a fabulous photographer duo to help you bring your vision to life. From your Bridesmaid Picnic to engagement and onto the wedding photos are SO SO IMPORTANT and having a fabulous photographer on your side. They capture everything and I can always see the difference between having my amazing LifeDotStyle photographers backing me up vs. my lovely photos, which are with a professional camera but just not the same. That said HOW AMAZING are these photos captured by LifeDotStyle? They capture the memories effortlessly which makes me so happy because this tablescape was so special being that I added my bestie.
The Event Planner
Of course I had to throw myself into here! Creating Tablescapes was something I thought I would try this year to share with you the many ways you can create and event, a wedding or a bridesmaid picnic. I have had way more fun with this than I expected and in the process I am able to promote so many wonderful businesses that I hope you get to find through these tablescapes and use in your wedding. So the perks of having an event planner like myself create these for you is that you would be able to just show up and enjoy all the fun bridesmaid picnic celebration. You can find me over at Fresh Look Event Management just in case you are new over here.
For a bridesmaid picnic I was thinking what could the brides you on the wedding day? So why not find the cutest handbag that could be used as a clutch. I have SEVERAL handbags from Poppy & Peonies and LOVE their style and uniqueness. Plus they are Canadian, with an incredibly inspiring Boss Babe who supports women in business by helping them create their own empires. So I reached out to Poppy & Peonies and they sent me 4 of The Madeline Crossbody In Garden Floral which coordinates with our garden picnic theme perfectly. The idea was to fill them with beautiful flowers pouring out. What I love about this handbag besides it being gorgeous, is that it is incredibly soft and has great card slots for all your cards to fit. It also had the perfect front pocket for the Will You Be My Bridesmaid Cards!
Speaking of Flowers pouring out of a handbag let’s chat a little bit about the fabulous flowers form Laurels On Whyte. Laurels On Whyte is my favourite Edmonton florist to work with because they make beautiful floral arrangements and I always fall in love with their work every single time. I told them my idea and asked them for blush and white flowers to pour out. Didn’t give any specifics other than to drop off the handbags when they arrived. Laurels being the fabulous florist that they are saw the name Poppy & Peonies and immediately collected all the peonies they had in store for the arrangement. I was THRILLED when I saw that connection. Plus they added lilacs, which I am sure they thought about when I said we were going to shoot in front of a lilac bush. They just think about the experience and making it the best ever. Probably why I love them so much. There is heart in all that they do.
Oh the wine!! I feel all dreamy talking about Hatch Wines. Picture a beautiful day in Kelowna, the sun is shining, your dressed all pretty and off to do some wine tastings. When you come to a winery named the Hatch. It is real, down to earth with people that are fun and super knowledgeable about their wine. They have a different vibe from all other wineries. They have heart. That is how I feel about The Hatch and why I LOVE every opportunity I get to share their brand with as many people as possible. This tablescape just wouldn’t be the same if it didn’t have Screaming Frenzy Rose from The Hatch included. Now I hope you pop over to their page and check them out and FOR SURE visit them when you are in Kelowna next.
The Custom Wine Insulated Cups
Now it wouldn’t be right if I had the wine but didn’t have Insulated Wine Glasses! Those are necessary for wedding day fun for the bridal party. I reached out to Lamose because again another Canadian Brand and one that I LOVE. I have a Lamose coffee mug with the Fresh Look Event Management logo and my name on it that holds my coffee every single day and a 26oz water bottle that I use every day for my workout and to keep my hydrated. This is a company that provides a wonderful product that you also get to customize and make it special. A Custom Wine Insulated Glass is also something your bridal party will use forever, at the lake, on vacation, and just relaxing on the deck. and FYI they wash amazing! Pet peeve over here is when they chip in the wash and 100% Lamose products will last forever!!
The Engraved Names, Stir Sticks & Cheers Charms
You’ve seen Engravables Design a few times on this blog and I am always so proud to share what she comes up with. Anything I have asked for she creates it and when you like to be creative and show what is possible it is amazing to have someone who gets excited to make it happen. I love how working with Engravables Design I have been able to add an extra level of personalization to my events and tablescapes. It’s all those little details that make your special day just that much more special and amazing.
There are so many fun little details that make up this whole bridesmaid picnic to create such a beautiful experience for anyone in attendance. That is probably what I love the most about wedding planning, event planning and these tables capes. I can share with you all the little details that I take care of to bring the whole experience to the next level.
