Tiffany Themed Bridal Shower for Bride to Be Nakia!
We had a great time at the “Nakia & Co.” themed bridal shower! Tiffany blue, black, and white were carried throughout all of the decor and even to the Tiffany Blue Punch. Guests received custom Tiffany themed cookies as favors and munched on brunch. Custom games were created by Rosemint Inc. and one of the bridesmaids created a very cute custom frame.
Guests were greeted with strands of pearls as part of the “Don’t Say Wedding” Game. If anyone got caught saying “wedding”, the whistle blower got to take their pearls. The guest with the most pearls at the end of the shower won a prize.
The menu included delectable brunch items. French toast, shrimp and grits, bacon, salmon croquettes, fresh fruit, fried chicken, waffles, and salad rounded out the buffet.
The Tiffany blue bar offered Tiffany Blue Punch and your choice of mimosas! Also, custom “Nakia & Co.” labels were added to the water bottles.
Here is the fabulous frame made by one of the bridesmaids! You also see themed photo props on the table.
Table settings and favors are shown below.
Saved the best for last…the gorgeous bride to be! Yes, her shirt reads “All I Need Is Bottomless Mimosas”.

Before you start packing or dreaming of sand in between your toes, here are a few things to things about for your destination wedding:
- Be considerate of your guests.
A huge plus to having a destination wedding is that, more than likely, you’ll be saving some major dough compared to the total cost of a local wedding. Yay! But your guests will have increased expenses for travel, lodging, food, etc. Be considerate and give as much advance notice as possible so that your guests will have plenty of time to budget.
Communication is key. Keep your confirmed guests in the know and help make things a little easier by:
- Reserving a block of rooms
- Providing information on the climate
- Advising on the dress code
2. Make some plans.
The only people that you and your guests will know are you and your guests, so make sure to make known activities and things to do. You may even want to create an itinerary so that everyone is on the same page. We’ve helped a bride create custom welcome baskets that were waiting for her wedding guests in their hotel room upon their arrival. The baskets included a custom thank you message to all of the guests and a complete itinerary for the full time of their stay.
3. Travel smart! There are a few extra things in addition to typical travel details that you may need to consider if you are getting married abroad:
- Bring your passport and leave a photocopy of it with a trusted friend or relative who is not going to the event, in case it gets lost or stolen.
- Check with your physician and insurance to ensure that your vaccinations are current and to inquire about others that may be necessary.
- Bring any medications you routinely take.
- Pack an extra pair of glasses.
- Leave unnecessary valuables and irreplaceable items at home.
Some of the things you should inquire about include:
- Waiting periods for the marriage license
- Blood test requirements
- Identification and necessary documentation
Now as a fair disclaimer we at Rosemint. Inc are not biased to one palette over another simply because it holds part of our company name. We equally love all things shiny, timeless, beautiful, and insert any other girly whimsical modern structured wide variety of adjectives. This palette we are featuring you will be seeing throughout the year, just remember you saw it here first-ish or hey just remember Rosemint Inc.
Rose and gold or rose gold is the pairing of 2016, it’s the cousin of 2015’s copper accents and it keeps up with the rustic venues and intimate table settings that are here to stay in 2016. There is a special intimacy and warmth in this palette, that complements the growing trend of casual togetherness among the wedding couple and attendees. The rose gold palette can be blown up big or kept cozy and small without losing the warmth and beauty. Look no further ladies, this is a palette you can build a firm foundation and add your own spin to it. Set your imagination free on this luscious palette, it will not disappoint!
