Homemade Bride & Kate Pope Photography – Boho Bridal Suite


The Bridal Suite.


So much time is spent on the ceremony, reception and all that goes into the day, however often brides skip over the space where they spend most of the morning with their closest family and friends.

The Bridal Suite.

While the mimosas are always on point, think about what else to include in the design of the room.  We’ve created a list below of items from our inventory what will impress your girls and shared some ideas to keep them all excited about the day’s events!

Decor Ideas:

  1. Teal Bridal Chair
  2. Frames – Sharing old pictures of you and your girls
  3. Strawberry Baskets – Fruits and Snacks
  4. Cake Stands – Desserts and snacks
  5. Barn Doors – Creating a space to hang your dress
  6. Chairs, Ladder Back Chairs


Game Ideas:

  1. Jenga or other board games while girls wait for hair and makeup
  2. “That’s what she said” – Create cards with quotes the bride says religiously throughout conversation and then mix in others that are random. Each participant must answer whether “that’s what she said” or not.
  3. The Shoe Game – Pair up your bridesmaids for a good laugh!

Homemade Bride – Cedar Grove Acres – Outdoor Wedding Inspiration



Pulling up to the venue, you can’t help but see the beautiful red door that brings the front of the house to life. Along with the wrap around porch and fruitful landscaping, your guests will be giddy with excitement to see what is beyond the gravel driveway.

Beyond the gravel driveway… everything has been crafted and carefully planned so that each bride has a wonderful and unique experience as they design what is essentially a blank canvas for creativity surrounded with natural beauties.
