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 – The best thing we can do, is be true to you.

Homemade Bride - Michael Moss Photography - Rental Image

First, the barrels are wheeled out, followed by the tractor. Now that there’s a bit of room to move around, we pull items like the vintage wheel barrel, standing galvanized tubs, and the cupcake ladder outside to create the “center stage” for our brides to take a peek around our mini showroom!

If you haven’t yet guessed, our showroom doubles as our garage. While I dream about winning the PowerBall and one day owning a large teal barn, we work hard and can say we’re proud of our garage for now. My dreams (well some) will one day come true; however until then, the best thing we can do is be true to you.

When you book a showing with Homemade Bride, you will be welcomed to our home to peek around our garage and all the rental items we share. While a rental consultation and showing is not always needed, we do offer to meet at local coffee shops around your town to better understand what it is you are looking for. Getting to know a bride is such a rewarding part of this rental process. We love each and every piece because in some way it tells a story – if we can share that and hear a couples’ story at the same time, it means we’re doing our job!


Allow us to share our story with you and assist in providing (or finding) the perfect rental decor for you and your story. Grow with Homemade Bride as you grow in love.


Tour our rental site and reserve your date!

Hear from other happy brides!
