This green and yellow wedding styleboard, Spring has Sprung, is the perfect place to find inspiration for your warmer weather wedding. In my book you can’t go wrong with fabulous yellow shoes, donuts, jelly beans and spiked lemonade cocktails. Creating a wedding styleboard like this one can be a great place to start or enhance your wedding planning.

As men have become more and more involved in the wedding planning process (yaay for the modern groom!), a trend has been emerging – the couples shower. No longer are the pre-wedding festivities reserved for the girls only. The guys want to be part of the fun too. And why not? You’ll be celebrating together for years to come, and a couple’s shower is a great way to kick off your almost wedded bliss!
Beyond being great for the bride and groom, a couples shower is great for those who share a group of mutual friends who want to celebrate together. And there’s no need to be formal. Couples showers can be held at your favorite restaurant or bar or even at a friend’s house for brunch.
Here are a few couples shower ideas to get you thinking:
Wine Tasting: Have a big selection of wines available, or better yet have each guest bring their favorite bottle. Supply a lot of bite sized goodies including a delicious cheese plate of course. And chocolate, don’t forget the chocolate.
Coffee & Donuts: Have as many different donuts as you can dream of. Provide a side table of toppings such as colorful sprinkles, hot fudge, caramel and marshmallows to make them even more decadent. As for the caffeine fix, serve a variety from lattes to espresso.
Make it a BBQ: Go all out and cook yourself, or hire a food truck to supply the yummy goods. All you need to do is find a good park, provide refreshments and some outdoor games.
Champagne Brunch: Whether out at your favorite restaurant or at your parent’s house, this is always a winner. Supply plenty of brunch time staples like omelets, muffins and scones, pancakes, bacon, cheeses and of course the cocktails.
