Today I have a Little Black Dress bridal shower theme to share with you. The bridal shower showcased in this post is more near and dear to my heart than normal as it is my best friend that is getting married (and I’m proud to be her MOH)!
To go along with the Little Black Dress bridal shower theme, all of the guests wore their favorite LBD and we had a blast chatting over some fine food and wine all while celebrating the bride-to-be. Speaking of wine, the game we played at the shower was a classy take on a wine tasting!
Kat, of Kat Shanahan Photography, took all of the pictures you see below and I am happy she is letting me share them with you.
Little Black Dress Bridal Shower Theme Invitations
I designed and put together the Little Black Dress theme invitations for the bridal shower. This was a custom design that I created just for the occasion, including adding layers of cardstock and gems, but I have decided to post a version of it for sale as a DIY wedding printable file in my Etsy shop, Pink Spruce Designs!
Bridal Shower Food and Decor
The shower was held in the afternoon, so we had lots of appetizers to snack on all the way from roll-ups to spinach artichoke dip (the bride’s favorite) to homemade cheesecake made by one of the lovely bridesmaids. The hostess also put together this cute banner. She cut out the banner pieces from scrapbook paper and used colored sharpie markers to draw the letters on.
Wine Tasting Bridal Shower Game
One of the bride’s favorite things is wine. So, I put together a blind wine tasting as the shower game. I had the groom fill me in on her absolute favorite bottle and I then added in ones I knew she also liked (and then a few based on fun names)…of course, I included the “Little Black Dress” brand of wines! Great news – I now offer this wine tasting game as a DIY printable file in my Etsy shop (Pink Spruce Designs).
I sewed the wine bottle covers (super simple bag tied shut with a ribbon) so that it kept the wines a secret during the tasting.
Each guest sipped all six wines and then made a guess as to which wine was which (not shown in the pictures is the backside of these cards where the wine names and descriptions were listed out).
I found this wine barrel with a chalkboard message area at JoAnns.
To go along with the wine tasting game, I made up these cute wine glasses as take home favors for each guest. Chalkboard paint was added to the bottom of each glass to allow everyone to write their name on (and trust me, being able to differentiate glasses certainly came in handy more than once throughout the afternoon).
