let me tell you now, that i love love love everything british!  and though i'm sad that my best friend brandi is moving to the uk to live the dream and marry an english man, i am so excited for an excuse to cross the pond!  so, what better bridal shower theme than an english tea party?!  complete with fascinators, teacups, and cucumber sandwiches!  put on by her mom and sister, they did such a fantastic job.  her mom even made a cake based on one seen on pinterest (and it was deeeelicious!)


unfortunately i'm unable to attend their wedding, but wanted to say that i'm wishing the beautiful bride to be and her fiance lots of love and all the best on the big day!  


p.s. aren't you obsessed with brandi's bridal shoes?!  the prettiest shade of coral and love the bow detail!

  1. That's what we did for my cousin's bridal shower last year! Fascinators, Pipa and Kate dresses and all! :)

    You look fabulous! Purple is my favourite! :)

  14. What a cute idea for a wedding shower! Love the teacups. Even though I don't drink tea I would just so I could use one of those cups! ; )

  15. That is such a great idea for a wedding shower. I'm definitely going to file that away in my brain for possible future use ^_^.

    YOUR dress looks great! I love love love the cut of the neckline and the chiffon that hangs down... would you call that a ruffle? I wouldn't, but I can't think of the right term right now. Anyway, great look!
