Serve cocktails + confections
Every party needs great food and drinks. Savor the moment with sweet treats like macaroons, cupcakes and even pink popcorn. Serve a signature cocktail – like this Rose Raspberry Sorbet Mimosa – for an Insta-worthy experience. And don’t forget the mocktails for the moms-to-be (we offer maternity samples too)!
Play around with lighting
Make sure to host the party in a space that offers plenty of different lighting, including indoor and outdoor spaces. This will allow you to see how your dresses look in a variety of settings.
Have bridesmaids who live across the country? An at-home try-on makes it easy for them to share the experience. Make sure they order their sample around the same time, and Facetime them in once the party starts.
