Science Geek-Chic + Vintage Glamour Girl = One Crazy Cool Cobalt Blue Bridal Shower

You know, now that I have a little one at home, I often find myself getting caught up in all things baby showers & birthday parties, and then someone passes on a gem of something bridal and I am all sorts of giddy and gung-ho to get back into the wedding swing of things!  And this simple & fabulous 'Geek-Chic Bridal Shower' is just the thing to pull me away from pink elephants and cake smashes for a moment.

Created by the amazing Molly of Glitter and Rye and Jacqueline and Lindsay of Readyluck Photographers and brought to us by 100 Layer Cake,   this party is full of character and does such a wonderful job of reminding us that a bridal shower is the true prequel to your big day, and so often gets overlooked when it really should be a mini-version of what you want your 'I Dos' to feel like, no?

Here, you take a look and decide for yourself . . .

A word from Molly: "We honed the theme to something that was one part science geek-chic and one part vintage glamour girl. I scoured flea markets for cobalt-blue apothecary jars, vintage globes, and science beakers to set the scene. We brought in ferns and plants to add a little botany to the mix. We wanted the feel of the room to be flooded with cool tones and black accents – nothing too pink or too girly."

Oh, how I swoon for this amazing vintage fabric covered bulletin board.  And how about those library check-out guest book cards? (You can find them at your local teacher supply shop)-and think of all of the room on them for your attendees to leave their marriage pearls of wisdom . . .

Now with details like that, who wants to sweep their next bridal shower under the rug in such a hurry and focus all of their energy on the wedding?  I just love a reason to celebrate, and see what can happen when you make every little detail count? Photobucket
