The bridal party has become the stylish alternative to the crazy – and frenzied – bachelorette parties, which are no longer adapted to personal tastes or to the era in which we live. Bride and friends are looking for a celebration where they can have fun, yes, but without falling into generalized clichés. Here everything is more intimate, caring, personalized and glamorous.
A super group of Galician suppliers, headed by wedding planner Rain of Rice, present us this styled shoot of inspiration to celebrate a bridal party inspired in the Rías Baixas and in that wonderful contrast between the blue sea and the green field that frames the coast of Galicia. An editorial that seeks to “claim the beauty and the intimate and special character of organizing a party among friends. And as a symbol of the land, the bride is accompanied only by five friends, the same as the estuaries that make up the Galician Rías Baixas.
A bridal party in the countryside or a bridal party on the beach?…When you have the two options at hand to choose, the decision is difficult. But beyond deciding between field and beach, the ideas and activities to realize are going to be super important to enjoy a new chic bachelorette party. By the way, it is not necessary to choose either. You can always make both plans in a weekend dedicated to the future bride.
Bridal party: A picnic in the countryside.
The simplest ideas, organized with affection, are always the most accurate. A bohemian picnic in the countryside is the first of the ideas to organize a bridal party that we bring you. Ethnically printed blankets and cushions, low wooden tables, wicker chairs and benches, wild flowers; natural materials lend themselves to the chic boho decoration with which the picnic is set. For the dress code: comfortable and flowing dresses, perfect for an outdoor party in spring or summer.
For the picnic menu the proposal is asnack with varied fresh fruits served on a lively table full of colour, textures and contrasts. A perfect idea as a menu healthy or for vegetarians and vegans; although the menu can always be adapted with different types of snacks. The final point of sweetness is the cake type ‘naked cake’ with a precious topper of flowers.
On a picnic afternoon, a good idea is to have a flower headdress workshop. A nice and enjoyable way to spend time with an activity and, in addition, complete your styles with the headdresses you have just made. Another idea is to give a wreath of flowers to the bride and highlight her from the other guests at the bridal party (Yes, it is also a glamorous way to change the horteras diadems that are stylized). For this session inspiration Susiflor Greenhouses devised a precious crown of flowers XXL for the bride, with roses Austin, roses of garden, brunias and greens of eucalyptus and asparagus; and for the friends, she proposed a simpler crown with ranunculus and silk flowers.
Bridal party: One brunch on the beach.
Escape and spend the day at the beach is one of the most repeated plans in the stylish bachelorette parties celebrated by the famous influencers; like the Brazilian model Maria Beatriz Barros or the Italian Chiara Ferragni. This general plan can be crumbled up with fun activities, such as those proposed by this Galician-inspired session. A day in a beach club overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, in an exclusive reserved from where to enjoy the sun, music and a delicious brunch of season with products of the land.
As an activity Cocktails and Soul proposes to hold a cocktail workshop,and learn how to prepare rich mojitos, daikiris and caipiroskas (girls’ favourite cocktails), with citrus flavours flavoured with mint and natural fruits such as strawberry or mango, accompanied by subtle touches of lime. Sounds good, doesn’t it? A fun idea with which to have a good time with laughter and assured confidences.
And a bridal party would not be complete without a photo session with friends. You can devise a small photocall (with a Polaroid camera, for example) and/or hire a professional photographer to do a more spontaneous session or to accompany you for a good part of the day. The idea is to immortalize such a special and complicit moment so that the memory always accompanies you.
