Cue the bridal nostalgia! As Michael and I celebrate our 4th wedding anniversary next month, I couldn't help but play bride for this fun bridal party shoot.
With wedding season in full swing, I have been inundated with questions about tips on throwing an easy bridal shower/bachelorette party that won't break the bank. I completely understand your pain! Just last year I was planning my sister's shower and ran into the same struggle. I had great ideas, but they were either going to cost an arm and a leg or I couldn't find what I was looking for. Oh, how I wish I had gotten my hands on Coterie then!
Coterie is an elevated party supplies company that delivers what you need right to your door. This entire shoot (minus the cake stand, cupcakes, and flowers) was straight out of the Coterie package!
Three Reasons I Loved Using Coterie:
Stress Free Party Planning
While I enjoy the thrill of the hunt and pulling different products together for a party piece here on Going For Grace, that isn't always what you all are looking for when planning your own parties. Most of us are busy women, juggling so many different things on any given day. Throw having to plan a party into the mix and we just might crack.
This is the main reason that I loved using Coterie. No running to three different stores to find the perfect napkin that will match the cute plates that you found. They provide curated party sets for every occasion! Simply choose your occasion, browse the different themes, select how many people you are hosting, and choose between the essentials or luxe package.
Every single thing that you need to throw a party is included inside these packages. Think cups, plates, napkins, cutlery, confetti, balloons, cupcake toppers, and that is just the essentials package! In order to show you the wide variety of these sets, I upgraded to the luxe package for this shoot. The luxe package added on the adorable straws, extra balloons, cute bridal props, and the flower crown for the bride to wear. Well worth the upgrade in my opinion!
Elevated, Stylish Designs
You know that I'm all about the aesthetic of each and every thing that I do. Not just any paper plate will do around here, but I am happy to say that Coterie is Going For Grace approved in this department! Their designs are all so lovely and detailed in each set that they provide. So beautiful, in fact, that there are many patterns that I wish were actual everyday dishes! I had the hardest time deciding on a set to feature - Some of my other favorites are Amalfi Blues, In Full Bloom, and Fruit Punch!
Quick & Easy
Not only did using Coterie make the planning process a breeze, but this shoot may have been the easiest set up and clean up to date! When your box arrives, each piece is individually packaged and makes for such an easy set up. I literally carried my Coterie box into the shoot space, pulled things out one by one, and had a gorgeous table within minutes! These sets would be perfect if you aren't confident in your own styling skills. Simply set up your table, add some flowers and ta-da! They'll be calling you Martha in no time!
