Whether you're hosting your best friend's wedding or you're soon to be hitched, the bridal shower is still one of the most popular traditions to indulge in.  I was recently inspired to create a very Carrie Bradshaw a la Sex and the City-worthy bridal shower with an Homage to Fashion theme. The idea was born out of my love for collecting unusual perfume bottles with fabulous packaging.

When planning any event (especially those without a particular budget set), the best advice I can give is to include details that can be easily sourced and readily available such as the Chloe, Chanel & Dior perfume boxes and Tiffany's jewelry bags used throughout this shoot. You can get them from any specialty department store, so start getting creative! For some added fun, let your guests try on bridal jewelry that you and your bridesmaids will wear on the big day. And, of course, what's any good bridal shower without a proper mimosa bar courtesy of our friends over at OneHope wine. The pastries by Bottega Louie were made for show-stopping dessert table that was almost too pretty to eat (key word almost). xo Saida
