Vino Etcetera Bridal Shower in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin
Emily was surrounded by all the love at her bridal shower this past April. Her and her fiance, Lukas, are tying the knot at the Oconomowoc Lake Club this June, making a nautical themed shower the perfect way to kick off their wedding festivities. Everyone enjoyed delicious food, “come sail away” cocktails, fun games, the bride rockin’ a hot pink jumpsuit, and a surprise visit from the groom! After the shower, I asked Emily what some of her favorite memories from the day were and what she experienced during the planning process. Here’s what she had to say!
What was your favorite part about your bridal shower?
“Seeing all my family and friends! It was so amazing seeing all the people you love in one room celebrating Lukas & I’s love!”
What was your favorite piece of decor?
“The beautiful anchor that my wedding planner Kristin made for Lukas & I! It will be a great piece of art in our home, and love that it'll be my new last name!”
Were you worried about any parts of the planning process going into it?
“I felt so calm in the planning parts of my shower, thanks to my wedding planner, Mom, and future in-laws! I couldn't have asked for better helpers on the day of the shower. I was so nervous to be in front of everyone I love, but I couldn't have been happier.”
What parts of the planning process were made easier by having a planner involved?
“Kristin was INCREDIBLE! She always contacted me if I had any concerns or worries about the day. She also was able to help with all the decor and knew my vision for the day. She made my day stress-free and calmed all my nerves.”
Would you recommend a planner for other brides or their families planning their shower?
“YES, YES, YES!!! It takes worries off of the family and allows the guests to have fun throughout the event knowing that the planner understands what you want. I believe that hiring Kristin for my shower and for our wedding was the best decision I have made during my wedding planning process.”
“I felt so loved & supported the day of my bridal shower. I also trusted Kristin throughout the entire process. I can't thank my Mom, Julie, Kristin, and my Mother-in-Law, Heather, enough for all their help on my bridal shower!!!”
Emily said she wouldn't have changed a thing about the day and that it was her dream bridal shower come to life. Hearing those words from one of my brides makes me just the happiest! I can’t wait for Emily and Lukas’ dockside wedding in just one short month!
