Earlier this spring, the entire I Do…Weddings! team paired up with Exquisite Wedding magazine to create a unique tablescape for the magazine. As you know, we always like to go outside of the box and challenge ourselves, so we opted against a standard dining table. Instead, we designed a vibrant and tropical Ladies Brunch, right on the bay at the Mission Bay Hilton. The event centers around good food and company, when the gals from a wedding celebrate the bride on the morning of her wedding. This is a GREAT idea, and a fun way to spend the early morning before hair and make-up. A nice, healthy breakfast, coupled with our “Nuptial Elixir” cocktail designed by Melissa and a gentle group yoga session with aromatherapy mists rounds out a relaxing morning. This certainly gets everyone both de-stressed and excited for a big wedding day ahead. This is also an excellent alternative to a Bridesmaids luncheon or brunch. This is a perfect and simple way to honor your bridal party, too!

We cannot thank the entire team enough for their contributions to this spread. We had an absolute blast, and enjoyed every minute! Be sure to pick up the newest edition of Exquisite Weddings…on stands now!
