This Bride Planned Her Own Vintage Inspired Bridal Shower for $7000

One of the last things you probably think about as a bride-to-be is planning your own bridal shower. Is that even a thing? Why yes, it is! And this bride felt inspired to plan her very own vintage themed shower on the rooftop of La Casa del Camino Hotel in Laguna Beach, CA.

The sweeping ocean views made it one dreamy location to celebrate her upcoming nuptials, and she went all out making it an event to remember. She kept the design airy and fresh with elegant floral centerpieces and custom favors for guests, and we’re practically drooling over the decadent dessert spread from A’nouge Sweet Designs. Learn more below, and be sure to check out the full gallery photographed by Rachel Stelter Photography for a closer look.

Yes, you can plan your own bridal shower

From Rachel Stelter Photography: With a little bit of Pinterest inspo and a whole lot of heart, Ayah planned her own, vintage-inspired bridal shower. To say it was full of sweet touches is an understatement! We began with a mini-romantic session of Ayah and her fiancé Feras at Laguna Beach ( which is just steps from the shower venue, La Casa del Camino Hotel). Textiles and pillows from Sweet Salvage Rentals made a perfect setting for taking a seat on some rocks and watching the waves crash ashore.

Back on the rooftop of La Casa del Camino, decadent, couture sweets from A’nouge Sweet Designs provided ample photo ops for guests. The array of sweets included eclairs, elegant donuts, and engagement ring cookies. The first layer of the chic, white ruffled cake had a beautiful quote from Chilean poet, Pable Neruda written in gold; “I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where, I love you directly without problems or pride: I love you like this because I don’t know any other way to love”
