Love Letter Bridal Shower

I can't think of anything sweeter than receiving a love letter. So often today, we send our love by text and e-mail, but there is something so dreamy about receiving a tangible, handwritten note that you'll be able to treasure for years to come. Today's inspiration board is for a love letter themed bridal shower.

Love Letter Bridal Shower

  • Ask the groom to write his bride a sealed love letter that you can present to her at the close of the shower. His words to her should remain private
  • Decorate the room in shades of pink and red. These red poppies would be perfect as centerpieces -- The Knot
  • Ask family and friends of the bride-to-be to bring along a love letter they once received to share or purchase vintage letters to set around the room (the purchased letters hung from string would make a really gorgeous garland) -- Ebay
  • Print famous love letters onto high quality paper to set at each table. You may want to consider placing the table number on the reverse side so that the card serves two purposes -- FineStationery.com
  • Even the dessert can be a canvas for infamous love quotes as demonstrated by this pink and red cake -- Martha Stewart
