When your wedding’s a few weeks away, it’s time to get away and play – what better way to celebrate going from Miss to Mrs. than with a fun, poolside bach bash with all your besties? This flirty bachelorette inspiration is chock full of sweet and colorful ideas to incorporate into your own perfect party. The LINE Hotel ATX hosted our squad for a sunny afternoon of sips and treats, providing the perfect lounge area (those lounge chairs are calling our name!) and a few colorful cocktail concoctions! It’s not a bachelorette party without a little indulgence – in this case, mouthwatering desserts from 2Tarts Bakery fit the bill! An Insta-worthy photo backdrop is a must-have, and Remi + Gold knocked it out of the park with their impressive floral inspiration, pulling in details from the tablescape and aesthetic of the day planned by Westcott Weddings. The stationery helps set the theme for the entire celebration, beautifully executed with playful flamingo details by Fine Day Press. Playful tunes curated by Dart Collective, pampering via hair + makeup from Beautymark Agency and massages from Live Love Relax, and fine jewelry from Eliza Page helped our girls feel on top of their game. The McKellars | Wedding Cinema captured this epic bach bash on video while Caroline Lima grabbed snapshots of all the best memories. Cheers to a poolside party with your besties!

From the planner, Ellen Westcott of Westcott Weddings: “I was inspired by the existing design at The LINE Hotel Austin, which is colorful, eclectic and fun. Tones of soft, beachy blue and green are woven throughout and accented by a mashup of patterns and textures at every turn. The pink bunting overhead is quite literally the icing on the cake (and the perfect addition for a bachelorette party)! The beautiful, modern florals with tropical touches from Remi + Gold added an additional pop of color and tied everything together.”

From the bride: “Our wedding day was absolutely amazing and we were both so excited to share our special day with our friends and family. It was definitely surreal for me since I was getting married at my parent’s venue which is french for ‘my house’ and it really was our family house, so it was all that more special to me. Ever since my parents had built the venue, I would dream of what my wedding would look like at Ma Maison.”

Elegant and romantic, soft and bohemian – all words that came to mind when we saw this “something blue” editorial. The most classic of Austin wedding venues, The Driskill, served as the backdrop for this dreamy photoshoot. It’s traditional architecture and art deco style interior were the perfect accents to every curated detail. The unique bridal gown from Blush Bridal Lounge featured climbing embroidery designs, a flowing train and deep-V neckline. Delicate bridal makeup paired with a unique, free-spirited hairstyle was an impeccable contrast – bravo, flAir Style Lounge! Benold’s Jewelers adorned the bride in beautiful gold jewels that emulated vintage glamour. Teal invitations with a deckle-edged, gold leaf border from Grey Meets Gold took “something blue” to a new level, creating a glamorous boho vibe that was visible throughout the table setting as well. A golden wax-sealed menu added some extra romance atop a teal napkin and gold accented place setting from Breed & Co. For the cherry on top, Flor Amor designed show stopping bouquets featuring peach roses, garden greens and extravagant white peonies!

After a weeklong countdown, we are THRILLED to unveil the Brides of Austin 5th anniversary cover! Captured by the oh-so-talented Kelly Scogin of Mint Photography, this image from our fashion editorial, titled MUSE, was the perfect choice for this celebratory issue. The model bride’s seriously glamorous Reem Acra ball gown from Julian Gold was juxtaposed with edgy styling thanks to tousled clipped hair and iridescent makeup by Gloss Beauty Boutique and a luxe layered jewelry look with pieces from Nicole Mera creating an oh-so-Austin look worthy of a celebratory cover. Bricolage Curated Florals‘ non-traditional, over-flowing bouquet of furry fronds and wine- and lavender-hued blooms completed the unique look set at the iconic metallic ikat printed walls of Hotel Van Zandt. This image is truly one for the books.
