The Friday of the wedding weekend included a beautifully seated bridesmaids lunch at the upstairs venue of Bistro 31 in Highland Park Village. Appointed with the wedding monogram tastefully incorporated into a blue and white fete, the bridal party and ladies of the my family and Alex's gathered for all things feminine.
FAVORITE LITTLE DETAILS FROM THE DAY
From the moment you turned the corner, you knew you were entering a party, thanks to the beautiful floral arch created by Park Cities Petals.
Highland Park Village's Bistro 31's upstairs open air dining area was the perfect backdrop for this intimate gathering of family and friends. Silver trays of rosé lined the entry and blue and white ginger jars laced with fresh pink florals kept the festivities feeling feminine.
The blue and white ginger jars used throughout are pieces that I've owned and enjoyed using for many years. In fact, I first purchased them (for $1 each, I might add-- got to love a Tuesday Morning Outlet!) my freshman year of college at SMU when I decided to host a sit-down dinner for a dear friend's 18th birthday!
Our Emily McCarthy custom logo was once again incorporated into this event, but with bridal blues. Not shown, the back of this invitation featured a beautiful garden pattern.
I worked with Caroline at Hempstead Thread to make a monogramed tote for each bridesmaid. The colors of the monogram would appear in their "getting ready" outfit the next day. Each tote included a box of Hazen jewelry the girls would wear for the wedding.
Our precious flower girl stole the show! The hostesses even had a flower crown made for her to wear at the shower. She looked precious in her Proper Peony dress (another local Dallas brand we love).
I found a dress by Jane Summers that I thought was simple and festive for the occasion. Accented with baby blue satin straps and pearl buttons, I paired it with Hazen's Elizabeth triple earring and freshwater pearl Rosemary bracelet. My mom paired her Carolina Herrera blue dress with a white Annabelle necklace.
Friday's luncheon felt like a true gift by people who knew me better than I thought possible. It was the perfect opportunity to gather in a more intimate setting before we dove into the larger festivities.
