My 60’s Style Bridal Shower

SS_061913_WeddingShower_LemonDropCouture_COVER

Last Saturday my sister and Aunt Jean took my fruity Mentos breath away after surprising me with an all-out sixties chic bridal shower. The vintage inspired ‘Madly In Love’ soiree had guests showing up glam enough to give Betty Draper a run for her alimony. I couldn’t help but smiling every moment after noticing the record place settings, the quaint candy bar, the Nor-Cal garden party atmosphere and the martini bar. Games were kept to a minimum as we sipped hot-pink sugar rimmed Lemon Drops.

I wore a simple lace Forever 21 dress I found the night before. Then I  added an ivory satin belt, a faux flower to my bun and a pair of fucsia strappy heels adorned with roses. Here’s a few photos and a video from the girly-girl day I’ll never forget…

Dress – F21, Necklace – F21 (same one here in black), Nails – Essie, Cocktail – Lemon Drop, flower – craft store

(Style Sidenote) If you ever want to make an off white or ivory dress look a brighter white, add a rich ivory satin belt. It tricks the eye and your dress looks whiter.

After the shower, my sister put this youtube video together below showing everyone at the party and even a few marriage words of wisdom from my grandma and great aunts. I hope you’re having a great week and thanks for reading.
