From Jena of Elli – “Michelle and her fiancé are looking forward to a Hawaiian honeymoon, so her maid of honor partnered with us at Elli, an artisanal wedding marketplace, to throw Michelle a chic Luau themed shower. Based on our Bursting Blooms bridal shower invitations, we stuck with a coral, peach and teal color scheme with gold sequin accents in the form of table runners and DIY signage. Local florist Floral Sunshine created gorgeous rose leis for the bride and bridal party, and we served Mai Tai’s to carry out the theme!”
No matter where you’re hosting a bridal shower luau, indoors or out, you can make a Hawaiian theme work!
One of the things I love most about this bridal shower luau is that it’s different than all the others I’ve seen. The color palette was created to work with the space and still work with a luau theme. Typically a luau is much brighter – but this one is more feminine and therefore perfect for a bridal shower.
I also adore the tweaks to the floral designs. Typical Hawaiian leis are crafted from orchids but these used roses and other blooms available locally and they look fabulous!
