Planning a Beautiful Bridal Shower


Planning a wedding can be one of the most fun – and let’s be honest, sometimes the most stressful – time in a future bride’s life! Once the question is popped and the engagement is announced, it’s time to start planning! At Palmer Florist - 1-800-Flowers we meet brides, grooms, their future spouses and their bridal party in Westchester, IL all the time that are ready to start planning their bridal flowers.

A new trend we’re noticing in wedding planning is bridal shower flowers. We love making out hand-crafted flower arrangements for bridal showers because this is a fun opportunity for the bride and her bridal party to be creative without having to stick to the wedding theme or color palette. There are so many choices when it comes to picking a theme for bridal shower decorations and flowers, so we picked a few of our favorites to help you get inspired.

Bridal showers are traditionally a ladies-only event to share gifts and stories and celebrate the new bride. It’s becoming more and more popular to throw a coed bridal shower, and invite family and friends of all genders to join in celebrating the happy couple. We love this idea and we think it’s a great way to bring the couple’s closest friends and family together before they tie the knot! For decoration inspiration, we think bold, bright colors help represent this theme of togetherness and diversity. We find inspiration for these types of bridal showers in the Confetti Bouquet flower arrangement. This bright and brimming flower arrangement is filled with yellow and hot pink roses, orange and peach mini Gerbera daisies, pink and yellow Peruvian lilies, magenta carnations, pink & white bicolor carnations, hot pink Matsumoto asters, yellow daisy poms, green button poms, bupleurum and salal tips. It’s happy and joyful – just like a wedding should be.

A wine tasting bridal shower is one of the classiest and most beautiful events that we at Palmer Florist - 1-800-Flowers have ever helped plan. A color palette centered around burgundy and deep red is the perfect way to start planning the décor for a wine tasting bridal shower. For some design inspiration, take a look at our Floral Devotion. We love how the lavender daisy poms and lavender roses take center stage creating a deep, wine colored feel to the arrangement. The deeper colored flowers are complemented perfectly with bright sunflowers, which we think is a great inspiration for a wine tasting bridal shower color palette.

Feeling inspired? We know how exciting this time is for everyone involved and at Palmer Florist - 1-800-Flowers we can’t wait to help you start planning. Our floral design experts will learn everything we can about you and your wedding plans and help you pick out the perfect bridal shower decorations and bridal flowers.
