Parisian Bridal Shower

Let me tell you about one of the great loves of my life.

Bridal showers.

Bridal Shower Tent

I’m obsessed. Girly decor. Games. Dainty food. Present-opening. Sign me up for every bridal shower on earth.

This past weekend I was lucky enough to host my cousin’s Parisian Bridal Shower. #iwasinheaven

With each invitation, we asked guests to bring a special recipe to the bridal shower. Such an awesome way to get old family recipes and start a collection of yummy newlywed meals.

We had a birdcage for small envelopes and a recipe box on the gift table for guests to put their recipes in.

When guests walked in, they put on a pearl necklace and couldn’t say the groom’s name for the rest of the event.

For the first activity, guests wrote advice for the happy couple. The bride read each one out loud and gave a prize for the best advice card. (Printable at the end of post)

Advice for the Happy Couple


Our second game, my absolute FAVORITE game to plan for showers, was a Q and A game with the bride. We asked the groom 27 questions before the shower, covered up his answers and asked the bride those same questions. The guests then had to guess whether their answers matched or not.

A Kappa Kappa Gamma Bride

Kappa Kappa Gamma + weddings.

One of my favorite combinations.

When I got married, I knew from the start that I wanted to incorporate some of my favorite Kappa traditions. What can I say, #blueandblueforever

Kappa Kappa Gamma group

1 Kappa Bride + 13 Kappa Guests = PERFECTION

One tradition that my Maid of Honor took charge of (a belated thanks to my girl Ali) was getting my Kappa bridesmaids’ key badges. They were pinned on the inside of my dress – as the saying goes, “Wear the Key under your dress and over your heart.”

Another awesome idea is to pin the badges to the stems of your bouquet – love that!

The other tradition that I was looking forward to the most was singing “Oh Pat” surrounded by a circle of Kappas.

I know for every other wedding guest and family member, we looked like crazies out on the dance floor, but I loved every second!


Kappa Kappa Gamma Oh Pat

Just one of the best memories ever.

And the cherry on top? Having it featured on Kappa Kappa Gamma’s official instragram! #goals
