So you are engaged and more than likely be attending your bridal shower. Traditionally, you will not be the hostess of this party but, it does not hurt to pass along some ideas to your bestie. More than likely unless she is Martha Stewart, she will be pondering over ideas that you might like. Why not help her out and send her a link to this post.
Our dear friend Emily Steffan Photography captured this retro backyard bridal shower with the help of some fine Wisconsin wedding vendors.
Find fun retro wedding games to play with your lady friends. One idea that we love is to have your friends write down their favorite recipe for you. We have a great recipe card that you can download and print out by clicking here. All of the adorable paper goodies that you see on this retro inspired bridal shower are designed by Dena Swenson & Rachel Johnson.
How much do you love the escort cards. A perfect and easy idea to jazz up the table. A simple little piece of paper with your guests name on it attached to a toothpick. Stick it in your favorite fruit like lemons, limes or as shown here in a fresh summer strawberry.
Another fun idea is to have all of your friends dress up in retro attire. It will make for great photographs for fun and festive memories. A few great websites for retro inspired dresses are ShopRuche and Modcloth.
