We can't think of a better bachelorette party for a bride-to-be than a weekend-long, girls-only getaway at the beach, which is why we're swooning over this adorable Lilly Pulitzer-inspired photo shoot from Très Chic Southern Weddings, set at the Loews Don CeSar Hotel (also known as the Pink Palace). What better way to celebrate a bride's last hurrah than pretty patterned dresses, bright cocktails, ice cream, and a Lilly-all-over bridal luncheon?
Graphic pink and orange invitations and schedules, inspired by Lilly Pulitzer's juice stand, provide all the details for a feminine, beachy affair. Playful prints tie everything together.
Nothing goes better with pastel printed dresses than the clear blue waters of St. Pete Beach. Kick off a weekend-long celebration with ice cream and colorful cocktails.
A day at the spa is even more fun with floral robes, manicures, and lots of magazines.
No trip to Don CeSar is complete without an afternoon spent lounging by the pool. Towels, fans, and colorful sunhats ensure that everyone's ready for a day in the sun.
Keep the theme alive with patterned paper straws in festive fruit smoothies. A huge white flower makes sure everyone knows which bathing beauty is the bride!
Enjoy a picnic on the beach, with adorable individual baskets and a Lilly Pulitzer-patterned picnic blanket.
Cap off the weekend with a pink and green bridal shower luncheon. The hotel's tented rooftop terrace is the perfect spot for an afternoon of girly Florida fun.
Vintage dishes and gold flatware give the table a touch of elegance, while bow-shaped napkins keep it lighthearted.
A lush centerpiece includes bright peonies, roses, and anemones; fresh greenery adds a preppy touch.
No luncheon would be complete without sweet cocktails! Bite-sized salads and tropical desserts are followed by flower and pink martini cookies.
Hand-painted cookies replicate some of Lilly Pulitzer's most popular sheath dresses.
A Lilly Pulitzer-loving bride needs a print of her own. The guests are invited to leave sweet notes and designs on a plain white parasol so the bride can take a truly personal pattern with her.
