DIY Irish Inspired Bridal Shower

Inspired by shamrocks and Irish heritage, this bridal shower is just glimmering with all shades of green and luck! Between the emerald velvet chairs to the mix of bud vases, books, candles, Caitlin Gerres Photography conceptualized a stylized bridal shower that could be repeatable and realistic for brides and their friends.

With details like a two tier cake with soft green buttercream and an incredible sugar flower by Cakes by Crystal and white and green blooms beautifully arranged by Aleen Floral Design, their beautiful ginger bride and her Claddagh ring became perfection! Oh, to be lucky in love!

No bridal shower is without pretty paper, the shamrock-inspired invitation suite and Irish blessing print created by The Girl Tyler gave a lovely nod to heritage and even a bit of St. Patrick's Day. To weave Celtic influence into the shoot, High Voltage Hair meticulously wove a side braid for the bride that matched her braided metal headband and Dhalia Edwards gave a touch of emerald in the makeup.

Bridal showers are DIY events, so it's always important that these inspiration shoots are not only inspiring, but achievable for them. This creative team sure found the pot of gold with this one! (Because March punnies are always the best. :) )
