Planning a Beautiful Bridal Shower


Planning a wedding can be one of the most fun – and let’s be honest, sometimes the most stressful – time in a future bride’s life! Once the question is popped and the engagement is announced, it’s time to start planning! At Conroy's Flowers Long Beach we meet brides, grooms, their future spouses and their bridal party in Long Beach, CA all the time that are ready to start planning their bridal flowers.

A new trend we’re noticing in wedding planning is bridal shower flowers. We love making out hand-crafted flower arrangements for bridal showers because this is a fun opportunity for the bride and her bridal party to be creative without having to stick to the wedding theme or color palette. There are so many choices when it comes to picking a theme for bridal shower decorations and flowers, so we picked a few of our favorites to help you get inspired.

Bridal showers are traditionally a ladies-only event to share gifts and stories and celebrate the new bride. It’s becoming more and more popular to throw a coed bridal shower, and invite family and friends of all genders to join in celebrating the happy couple. We love this idea and we think it’s a great way to bring the couple’s closest friends and family together before they tie the knot! For decoration inspiration, we think bold, bright colors help represent this theme of togetherness and diversity. We find inspiration for these types of bridal showers in the Beauty In Abundance flower arrangement. This bright and brimming flower arrangement is filled with coral, pink, & green roses, lavender stock, purple monte casino, lavender spider mums, green button poms, purple limonium, and variegated pittosporum. It’s happy and joyful – just like a wedding should be.

With the wedding on the way, the honeymoon probably isn’t much further ahead! The honeymoon is one of the most fun parts of the wedding season and celebrating the bridal shower with a honeymoon theme is a fun and creative idea. Decoration theming can be based off their destination and the couple can request to skip all gifts in lieu of some padding to their honeymoon fund. For an outdoorsy couple taking off of a romantic camping get away, choose decorations that celebrate greenery and nature with deep browns and warm green in the color palette. For a couple embarking on a grand European getaway, try to decorate with things that remind everyone of their destination. The Fields of Europe Flower Arrangement ties together all the beauty of the European countryside and brings some nature to your décor – a perfect choice!
