It’s National Watermelon Day today and we have just the thing to beat the heat + inspire a fun wedding or bridal shower theme! The team behind this playful watermelon-inspired editorial – Oh What Joy Events, Brown Bunny Flowers + Ellie Koleen Photography – created a tropical modern paradise with funky pops of color (inspired by their fave summer fruit), a two-piece gown, and lots of super fun summer details. There are popsicles, sunglasses + plenty of hot pink to go around. We’re not sure about you, but we’re ready to grab some watermelon + an ice-cold cocktail and plan some sweet late summer soirées inspired by this lovely, lovely scene!
We love watermelon details + accessories so much – just check out that cute Bando cooler bag! – so we’ve put together a style guide filled with this pretty summer fruit below:
Such a perfect idea for a summer wedding or even just a pool party! Thanks so much to the team below for sharing!
