Bridal Tea Shower Inspiration

Tea Anyone? This darling styled shoot was done at the Glass Box in downtown Raleigh. Bridal showers and parties are such a good excuse to get all dolled up with your girlfriends.

glassboxstyledshoot (184 of 203)This shoot will appeal to our brides who are interested in staying on trend all while keeping with sophisticated southern style. Our bride is wearing a Makeup Forever lip stain with a Lorac Gloss to keep her lips a gorgeous shade of Fuschia all day, even through a tea party. A subtle neutral toned cut crease in her eyeshadow is a soft way of showing off those gorgeous eyes. Kensley is also donning a fishtail top knot. This style can be worn everyday, but with a touch of elegance is transformed into a more refined look.

Our blonde bridesmaid is sporting a textured top knot. While it is more of a street style,  a top knot is the definition of modern ease and simplicity. Brides looking to stay on trend this season are going to be looking for that simple, contemporary look. Don’t you love her subtle pop of emerald in her eyeliner?

Do you spot the hidden braids in our brunette bridesmaids half up/half down look? Braids are a must have for spring and summer hairstyles for weddings this year. By incorporating them into a classic style, it adds a splash of modern appeal. Her lavender eye shadow is the perfect touch to this soft romantic look.

These looks paired so nicely with the fun decor! A small brunch of finger sandwiches and scones go great with a yummy tea. These pops of color from the flowers are a wonderful accent to the all white color scheme of the Glass Box.

February is Bridal Show Month for Makeup for Your Day! Our final bridal show for February was back in Durham at The Cookery! This venue is also historic and has a very unique and urban feel to it.

Megan and I had so much fun chatting with brides and their fiances about their upcoming wedding plans! We met guests who were just recently engaged and some that were just putting the finishing touches on their events.

Bridal shows are a great way to get to chat with vendors and see venues fully decorated. If you find yourself at a bridal show in the future, please make sure you stop by and chat with us! My favorite part of it all is meeting couples and sharing in the excitement of planning a wedding and getting to know them.

That wraps up our bridal shows before we enter this 2016 wedding season. We’ve got a lot of work to do catching up with all the brides we met at the shows this season! See you at the next show!

This was a fun event because guests took a trolley between several different venues where different vendors were set up.

Makeup for Your Day was set up at the Merrimon Wynne! This is one of my favorite venues in Raleigh just because the bridal suite is so gorgeous!

I was in love with the paper crane display cascading from the center of the house! The entire Merrimon Wynne was glammed out with splashes of navy, gold and fuschia.

I spy our spread in Trendy Bride magazine which was shot at the Merrimon Wynne!

This was a very intimate event with only a handful of vendors at each venue. We had the honor of sharing space with vendors like Perry Vaile, Donovan’s Dish, Erin McLean Events and Bunn DJ company!

I will continue to document the bridal shows we attended in February on the blog! Catch us tomorrow to see where Megan and I ended up next!

Bridal Show Month: The Rickhouse

February is Bridal Show Month at Makeup for Your Day and I will be documenting all of the shows we attended! We were invited to be a vendor at The Rickhouse in Durham. This show was fun because it was on Valentine’s day, so it seemed extra romantic.

I really like this venue because it carries so much charm and history. We had a great view of the brewery! Megan and I came out for this show and we got to chat with some great vendors and meet some of the fun brides-to-be!

We had our flowers provided for this show by Tre Bella and they were so gorgeous! I love the way they looked next to the brick background.

We had a great view of the big dance floor that The Rickhouse has. I feel like Durham brings out the unique creativity in people! At this event I got to meet Riley Mclean and see his tin types! What a cool way to take a portrait!

I will be documenting the rest of our February bridal shows this week! Tune in tomorrow to see where we went next!
