How One Bride Did IT

Before Cathy shares some expert advice, she shares a picnic she recently created for a client. 

The bridal shower picnic was hosted in the bride’s backyard. Without a doubt the event was stunning. In addition, it was intimate and private nestled on the family property. 

First, multiple long tables were linked together to create family style seating. Then the table was surrounded by big, comfy pillows in the colors of the event. Correspondingly the ivory placemats, gold chargers and flatware further enhanced the setting.

Next a lovely array of flowers and greenery added some color to the table. Along with candles and other decorative pieces.

Likewise, the place cards and place settings mirrored the colors and floral theme.

We imagine this bride will not soon forget this lovely afternoon with her closest family and friends.

Now on to some ways to host your bridal picnic event. 

Expert Advice:

  • First decide which bridal event you wan to host for your luxury picnic. Whether it is a surprise picnic proposal, bridesmaid proposal or bridal shower. Also consider an intimate rehearsal dinner. Either way, your guests will love the uniqueness of your bridal picnic event.
  • Second, select the picnic location. The fun part is deciding where. For instance, you can transform your backyard like the bride above. Or visit your local park, garden, or lake. Of course there is always the miles of Florida beaches, with endless ocean views.
  • Third, determine your theme. Do you want the design centered around a few of your favorite colors? Or do you want to go all out with a full on Mad Hatter Tea Party? Whatever you decide, share your inspiration and ideas with your picnic company. This will help them create your perfect picnic setting.
  • Lastly, decide what additional elements you want to include. Consider delicious charcuterie boxes and a customized cake or desserts. Unquestionably you will want photos to remember the event by. So hire a professional photographer to capture this special event.
