Calling all hopeless romantics, Bachelor Nation fans and Rom-Com fanatics !! A charming proposition deserves a charming bridal shower, and nothing speaks as tempting as an intimate garden party. Bachelor in Paradise member Ashley Iaconetti landed the man of her dreams, so she brought some of her closest friends and family together to celebrate their engagement with love at first sight. The celebration was well attended and took place on a fine summer evening in North Hollywood. Jade Roper, the winner of the Bachelor in Paradise, rocked her baby bump of 8 months. Jade’s husband Tanner Tolbert and Ashley’s soon-to-be husband Jared Haibon performed at the end of the evening, and love was definitely in the air. The Bachelor really brings people together!
It was a beautiful event full of beautiful people, fairy lights and candles lighting the room and showing off the quaint decor. The guests laughed together and tried to make up their worst nightmare about a bridesmaid dress. They remembered stories about Ashley and Jared. It was an unforgettable night and we are very happy to share all the fascinating details with you! Ready to be inspired by this rom-com themed bridal shower ?! Yes, we thought so. Read on to learn more about the planning process and how this stunning bridal shower was brought to life!
When event producer Be Inspired PR heard about Ashley’s love for romantic comedies, they curated a top-notch sales team to create the perfect bridal shower with amazing elements of glamor and romance. Event Designers, Detailed Touch Events really brought out the girlish and sexy personality of the Bachelor alum, using rose and pink tones, and rose gold and black accents in The Garland. The day was simply breathtaking with stunning glamorous lounge chairs from Collective Rentals and feminine, luxurious floral prints from Bloominous. Those who have followed Ashley on the Bachelor – including Bachelor in Paradise and Bachelor Winter Games – know that Ashley and her husband Jared Haibon’s trip felt like a typical Hollywood rom-com. What better way to welcome Ashley’s closest friends and family into her world than with a When Jared Met Ashley sign created by Creative Nurse and paper elements by Shindig Bespoke that continued to express her passion for love stories. Better yet, Jenny Quicksall captured all of the fun and excitement that Iaconetti and her loved ones had in common. This included a movie viewing area where she starred another of Ashley’s favorite films, 27 Dresses.
How stunning is this table setting? La Tavola Linen hit the bull’s eye with a purple velvet tablecloth and black velvet napkins.
OH … and did we mention that Ashley’s favorite romantic comedy, 27 Dresses, played on a loop in her personal, cozy outdoor movie area? It was so good we had to mention a second time 😉 Talk about capturing the subject.
The Wild Posy kept diners cool with the cutest (and tastiest) popsicles and custom ice cream sandwich goodies. Yum!
Cheers to Ashley and Jared! The glasses were full and the toasts were accompanied by a bar full of One Hope wine. And yes, you are right … they were topped with cotton candy!
Thanks to a generous contribution from Box Fox, guests took home all of the custom boxes of fantastic goodies.
