I think that’s totally fine! I wouldn’t care if my shower was like my wedding, most of the ones I’ve seen have kind of been like that. The one you planned sounds really fun&pretty lol!!

My sister and other bridesmaids incorporated some elements of my wedding theme into my shower, and it was such a wonderful surprise! I loved it. Because the two events are so different, I wouldn’t be worried about stealing her thunder.

It sounds like you’ve put in a lot of thought and effort.  I think it will be nice that the bridal shower will be in a very similar style to the wedding.  I think it’s kind of nice that it’s coordinated. Don’t worry, I’m sure she’ll love it. Laughing

I think it’s fine!  It’s a completely different event and it’s someone else’s interpretation of the wedding.  I can’t imagine that it would steal her wedding’s thunder or disappoint her!  It’s a fun day with ladies and she’s going to appreciate the work you did on it.  That is what counts, not the fact that there are peacock feathers at the shower & the wedding.  Take a deep breath and be proud of yourself for the work you’ve done.

I don’t think you’re a tool at all! You want to make sure your friend has a nice time at her shower, which is awesome. The shower my girls threw for me was the same theme as my wedding. Our colors are purple so they had purple and green colors for napkins/plates/etc. I thought they did a GREAT job and really tied everything together nicely. I think some people do something different than the bridal theme, but most showers I’ve been to tie in the wedding colors. I think everything will be great, it sounds really cool. No worries, I’m sure she will be very grateful for all you have done for her.

No, it’s totally fine!  I think my bridesmaids are decorating for my shower in my wedding colors.  I’m glad you talked to the bride and she eased your worries, too.

As a girl who just had her shower today, I can only say that I absolutely loved the fact that my aunt cared enough to use my colors. It meant so much to me that my family and friends personalized the party to my weddding and my personality. So good work!! Your friend is going to have the most amazing time!

I think it’s nice that you used the same theme inspiration but, like you said, are making it more whimsical. Very creative. I’m glad you checked with her and she’s cool with it because I think it’s a really neat idea. Obviously she likes the theme and this gives her a chance to enjoy it in a different way.

My Maid/Matron of Honor said she got red and gold invites for my shower which is the same colors as my wedding and I was thrilled at just that!

I think it sounds like you put lots of thought and effort into this shower and THAT’S what the bride will notice! You’re a great friend for incorporating her wedding theme and it’s going to be lovely! No need to worry!
