There are lots of celebrities that have tied the knot in 2014, including Catherine Giudici, the bride of “The Bachelor’s” Sean Lowe. Actress Kaley Cuoco and her tennis-star husband Ryan Sweeting are also newlyweds. We’ve got some inspiration straight from these two celebs’ star-studded showers:
Instead of serving a three-course dinner, Mrs. Sean Lowe served her guests a variety of small, yet delicious appetizers. The 40 friends and family at her shower enjoyed mini-croissant sandwiches, a platter of different cheeses, shrimp cocktail and chocolate-covered strawberries for dessert. You can do the same for your bridal shower – sit down and think of about five different appetizers that range from salty to sweet and savory to please everyone’s palette. Try to choose finger food that can easily be picked up without the need for utensils.
Instead of a dinner party, Cuoco opted for a glamorous holiday brunch. She celebrated with her hairdresser, stylist, best friend and other Hollywood A-listers like Ali Fedotowsky, Melissa Rauch and Lacey Chabert. If you love the idea of a brunch soiree, consider providing a variety of buffet tables, including a mimosa bar and a pancake or waffle bar where everyone can top their breakfast treats with add-ons of their choice. Make it known on your bridal shower invitations that the event will be early in the day.
