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!

What’s better than S’mores in the Sugar Shack?



Crafting the perfect scene for our s’mores bar at Cedar Grove Acres was so much fun with this hanging bar in their Sugar Shack! After all the dancing and 2…3…10…drinks, you may want to give your guests the perfect late night snack to combat their late night hunger.

  1. Marshmallows (Large and Mini)
  2. Graham Crackers
  3. Waffle Cones
  4. Chocolate Pieces
  5. Aluminum Foil
  6. Grill/Fire Tongs



  1. Fill your waffle cone with all the necessary toppings. The mini mallows are great to start with!
  2. Place your waffle cone in the middle of a square piece of aluminum foil and wrap.
  3. Place it in the fire on a rack or sturdy log (not directly in the fire) and wait approximately 5-8 minutes to cook. Rotate as needed.
  4. Using the tongs, remove from the fire and let sit for a few minutes before attempting to open.
  5. Check to see that all is cooked to your liking and enjoy!


FYI – this may take a few practice runs to get the perfect bite – so offer to cook yours last 😉
