Neon Tropical Bridal Shower Vacation Styled Shoot

Girls, this bright and colourful tropical bridal shower inspiration will make you want to grab your bridesmaids and your bikinis and jet off to a villa with a pool. If you haven’t already planned your hen’s do, a bridal shower vacay with your girlfriends is a fantastic idea for a relaxing getaway before the wedding. Now, where’s my swimsuit?

We’re excited to finally reveal what we were up to in Lombok (besides soaking in our lovely private pool villa with tropical mocktails). Inspired by summer’s colourful trends and the bond between a bride and her ‘maids, we dreamt up a tropical bridal shower vacation, where a bride and her bridesmaids whisk away for a fun, relaxing, girly time in a luxurious private villa. A bridal shower getaway could be the perfect way to reward your bridesmaids for their hard work on your wedding, and to treat yourself to some bonding time with the girls. Get ready for a girls’ sleepover at its most colourful and luxurious!

With a modern neon colour palette of bright corals, hot pinks, aquamarine and lush greens, this styled shoot is for the bride who wants to have fun during her hen’s do. The neon tropical tablescape sets an intimate and casual lunch for the girls, with playful elements like gold pineapples, paper flamingos, and palm fronds to brighten up the celebrations. Then, it’s time to soak up some rays in the privacy of your own pool, and enjoy your cocktails and cupcakes in your newest bikini.

Kebun Villas & Resort, situated on the popular Senggigi stretch of Lombok, was the perfect spot for our styled shoot. The resort offers island hoppers a suite of rooms or private villas for their holiday stay, and for our bridal shower styled shoot, we chose the presidential suite, Cendana Villa, which can host a party of 6-9 in its exclusive garden compound with three villas, a covered entertaining area, and a private pool. It’s perfect for a girls’ getaway.

Together with Bianca Fung, the resort’s manager, and her team, we set up a neon tropical paradise fit for a bride and her ‘maids to have a fabulous time. Bianca is no stranger to styling the resort for celebrations, having pulled off a gorgeous garden wedding in the very same villa, and she and her florist partner Mawarsaron Lombok were totally down for our neon tropical concept. They provided yummy treats for the shoot, and lots of pretty props, like that adorable custom-made wooden mini bar cart. Daphne Chan of HelloAm created the pretty invitation and menu cards. Don’t you just love the flamingos? And of course, an island holiday warrants some new threads. To add to the fun of the girls’ getaway, the shoot also features summer essentials from Accessorize. All the fun in the sun was captured by Skyy Woo, who also shot our Lombok fashion editorial, From Speio’s Cave!
