There is one thing we certainly don’t share enough here at Polka Dot Wedding, and that? It’s all the pre-wedding parties you get to enjoy. So when Jessica’s bright and fun yellow wedding shower came across our feeds, we had to jump right on it. It’s vibrant and colourful, it’s modern, it’s sunshine-filled and it’s all about love. What could be better for The Yellow Issue?
“I wanted to create a vibrant atmosphere, full of laughter and love. Bringing all the most important ladies in life together in one room did just that!” tells Jessica, the star of the show and the reason for it all. “The whole day was filled with lots of moments I’ll look back on and smile. I’m so very grateful for the amazing women in my life who made my day so memorable.”
Set at one of Jessica’s favourite restaurants, Relish On Addison, “The food is absolutely phenomenal and I wanted the absolute best for my guests.” Enlisting photographer Powder Puff Photography to capture every moment. “Cortney was amazing! She captured the day perfectly. Every time I look through the gallery I feel like I am reliving the day.” This was a wedding shower that embraced Jessica’s dream for a bright, fun and elegant celebration to celebrate her upcoming nuptials. Scroll on for all the joy they bring and fun details.
Jessica donned a bright yellow Aje frock, pairing it with shoes from By Lana Wilkinson.”I had bought the dress online due to COVID-19 10 months before my bridal shower. I absolutely loved the colour and style and I wanted something different to the usual colours you see at a Bridal Shower. When the dress arrived I knew it was perfect, and I never got over it despite having it for months before the event. I paired my dress with simple jewellery and a pair of gold heels.”
Wedding stylist Arabella Events and floral designer Fleur E Scent brought the vision to life, Jessica explaining “I wanted the room to be filled with vibrant florals. When you walked into the room, the fresh smell and vibrant colour surrounded you. I matched the colour palette of the flowers to my dress and included pops of white and green to break it up. My favourite flower is White Baby’s Breath, so that definitely had to be included in the mix! The black props gave the styling an edge, while the flowers kept it pretty. The signage “Future Wifey” was fun! Everybody smiled when they read it.”
Guests were treated to a decadent luncheon, complete with games. “My sister helped me to create my own games, place cards for the guests, thank you gifts/thanks tags and prizes.”
