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!

Standing there watching these images come together behind the scenes, I got a chance to speak with the owner, Mr Winstead, and watch the excitement in his face.

His Story: After overhearing his wife talking about her hopes of one day owning a ’59 cadillac, Mr. Winstead made it his goal to find her just the right one. After a few long years and many calls to people uninterested in selling, the moment finally came. Mr. Winstead received a call from a previous contact finally interested in selling his original 1959 cadillac, the same one Mrs. Winstead had dreamed about.

The best part? Mrs. Winstead had no idea that her husband had searched and planned this entire surprise which made the journey even more special. Now, with a dream car of her own, this power couple can enjoy the open road and share their passion and inspiration with brides in town!
