I’m back with part 2 of my bridal shower – and it’s all about the details. If you missed the first post, which was a solo feature of my bridal shower outfit, check it out here.
There’s a reason I waited so long to publish this post- and noo, it’s not procrastination! I have been busy working behind the scenes on a new business that I’m ready to share with you guys
I launched my own Etsy shop !!!
So everything linked in this post is handmade by me and available for purchase! Creating and designing has always been my passion so I’m over the moon to pursue it professionally and share a piece of your special day with you. If you have any questions or inquiries please reach out to me at email@example.com.
Now back to the shower details-
For my outfit, I wore a pantsuit set from Safiyaa. I’m so obsessed with this modern bridal look. The asymmetrical top was off the shoulder and draped down the bottom of my pant leg. The trousers are the most flattering fit and I’ve worn them several times since. The top is here and the bottoms here.
Diana (@dianadstyles) did vintage glam waves for my shower – she’s really good at working with extensions. You can’t even tell I’m wearing clip-ins.
For my makeup I booked Sareen (@sareen_hmua) who I highly recommend, she’s absolutely amazing. Sareen is a NY based hair and makeup artist specializing in beauty and editorial. I booked her through the beauty app PRIV (which I highly recommend for high quality mobile services)

My mother hosted my shower at Opus Steakhouse and it was everything I could have dreamed of and more. I’m so appreciative and grateful for how hard she worked to put this shower together for me, because without her, none of this would have been possible.
Opus is one of my favorite Scotto restaurants and makes such a stunning venue for an event. The space is open and airy boasting floor to ceiling glass doors, Moroccan tile floors, a floating staircase and a beautiful grand oval bar.
My signature drink for the bar was the Paloma – my usual. Casamigos tequila, sparkling water, grapefruit juice, fresh lime juice and a pinch of agave.
Table bouquets were from Flowers by Burton.
We spent the day sipping mimosas, eating delicious food, laughing and playing fun games that my amazing sister-in-laws, Margherita & Cristina, put together for me.
Flower bars are the new “it” shower detail and the perfect activity if you’re not so much into games. I found the loveliest botanical tissue paper to wrap the bouquets in- everyone raved about it. What I loved most was that it doubled down as decor as well as a favor station.
The cart rental is from Milan Event Experience (@milan.event.experience) I went with all white top but she also has a super chic black and white striped one which I’m dying to let my imagination run wild on! Soo, I think you should slide in my inbox if you’re planning an event because a festive cart is a MUST 😉
Now, let’s talk about this flower wall! It was the most stunning backdrop for our photo session. If you are looking for a premier backdrop you have to check out my friend Christina’s rental company Fleur Mur. She’s such a boss babe and truly one of the most inspiring young entrepreneurs I know. If you are from Long Island you may know her as @SunkissedbyChris – yes she also does owns one of the best spray tanning businesses on the east coast.

For favors, I ordered mini candles from Taja Collection which is a brand I’m obsessed with. The square shape is super cute and looks great on the ig feed. Taja Collection even has a whole line of customizable candles so its the perfect gift- and the smell- my god.. AMAZING. My favorite fragrance is Queen of Hearts. Order the big size for yourself, trust me.
Thank you for stopping by!
My dessert spread was a delicious explosion of pink goodies including donuts, shooters, cupcakes, cookies and a tiered cake from The Best Goodie Bag. This bakery was such a pleasure to work with, the girls that own the shop are super sweet. The details on their desserts are on a whole new level- you have to check out the cakes they post on their instagram. Unbelievably talented!
