As the years go by, some things just get better and better, and our Fourth Annual Bridal Shower with Maggie Louise was no exception! From exquisitely beautiful brides-to-be, excited vendors, extra fun giveaways and of course some brand new registries, the evening of January 12th will stay in our memories as one of the most thrilling Bella Vita bridal showers yet!

As always, we had such a wonderful time working with expert wedding professionals from around the city, and they certainly brought their best game yet for the new brides of 2017! Here are a few of our highlights from this special event:

[Bella Vita] The most exciting part of hosting our annual bridal showers? Meeting you! It was a privilege to meet so many new Bella Vita brides, and we can't wait to help you create a registry that reflects your love story! 

[Maggie Louise Bridal] Of course, Maggie Louise stunned us once again with bridal gowns straight from a fairy tale. We know we're not the only ones who'll be dreaming about these beauties in the nights to come!

[The Flour Garden] Keeping our hands to ourselves is always a struggle when the The Flour Garden team brings in their latest masterpiece! Brides-to-be and vendors alike stopped to admire this edible, waterfall succulent arrangement on their latest confectionery delight.

[The Good Earth Pottery] Any chance to spend time with our dear friends from The Good Earth Pottery is one we're excited about, but this night was special. Our long-time friend pulled out all the stops with a display of his work that was so beautiful, no girl could pass by without dreaming up what it might be like to set the table with his creations.

[Southern Bloom] If there's anyone who can weave magic into the everyday, it's darling Kelly of Southern Bloom. With fresh, exciting new arrangements inspired by today's modern bride, her beautiful work was a showstopper all evening.

[Casafina]  A bridal shower wouldn't be a bridal shower without gifts, and Casafina Stoneware certainly made the night extra special! Their generous donation of a beautiful place setting was the highlight of one our giveaways for the evening.

[Annabella Charles Photography] A night this beautiful must be remembered, and we have Annabella Charles to thank for freezing this moment in time for us. From bridal showers like ours to wedding days, she puts meaning into the saying, "a picture is worth a thousand words."

[Simply Delicious Catering] A favorite of the night for certain, the talented team from Simply Delicious tantalized everyone's taste buds while reminding brides-to-be just how fun planning a wedding menu can be!

And just like that, our most highly attended bridal shower event is in the books! Until then, you can find us dreaming up new ways to make next year's even more magical, and helping some excited brides plan their perfect registries.

Thank you to everyone who came and made the evening so memorable! Cheers and see you next year...
