Let's be honest, sometimes a traditional bridal shower can feel a bit overwhelming for the bride-to-be. It's happens to be just one of the reasons we fell in love with this outdoor vintage bridal shower with a dash of playfulness and dollop of absolute pretty. In our perfect world, every day would include a floral throne and hanging umbrellas for us to frolic in the great outdoors of New Orleans and all this unique city has to offer. Thanks to planner Blue Skies Events Nola, florist Bee's Wedding Designs and photographer Arte De Vie, we can at least escape into this chic soiree and picturesque setting for an outdoor vintage bridal shower. This deliciousness is chock full of fabulous ideas for your bride tribe, who certainly should be pinning these pretties for safe keeping.

Outdoor Vintage Bridal Shower

Bridesmaids, consider this your visual guide to planning the ultimate pre-wedding celebration. Decorated in dreamy organic details, an abundance of flowers in bloom with stunning florals on the table, bridal crown, and not to mention the amazing head chair. Swoon! But it is the creative use of Bella Umbrella Inc.'s hanging parasols from the historic oak trees that light up our life. Perfectly complimenting the balance of the overall vibe for this open-air celebration. What girly gathering is complete without decadent and delicious treats? The ladies of the day dined on Nothing Bundt Cakes, one of our favorite stops. Seriously, you need to check them out for your entertaining needs. Just envision a touch of tea and you have an outdoor tea party for the lovely intended. Cheers to that! To top of the cheer and magic of the day - how apropos was it that a pair of swans at the park graced the shoot with impeccable timing at the New Orleans City Park? Just darling.
