For the bride that expects panache to personify her wedding bliss, a bridal shower at her aunt’s house just won’t do. As one of her trusted babes, it’s your job to plan a bridal shower as beautiful as your bride-to-be’s Pinterest board. Because the bride deserves a pre-wedding party as fabulous as she is, we rounded up some of the most beautiful places in Charlotte that lend themselves well to photo-taking, girl talk, and hanging for longer than a traditional meal.
Here’s your list of chic Charlotte bridal shower venues.
For the brunching bride with a major sweet tooth, the Amelie’s Uptown location offers plenty of solutions. The colorful decor is full of reasons to be enchanted — kitschy and cute and a bit Alice in Wonderland-esque, Amelie’s exudes Parisian style with a playful kick. Plus, the menu. With alcoholic beverages, coffee drinks, macarons and a plethora of pastry and food options, Amelie’s can serve up a delicious smorgasbord perfect for a mid-morning delight. Consider renting out the back room for a more private experience.
Meats, cheeses and fine wine — oh, my! If the bride’s an oenophile, Dilworth Tasting Room is the move. This diamond in Dilworth has the ideal setting for chatting with friends new and old — the darling courtyard in the back practically begs for a photo shoot. Though the atmosphere is certainly the most charming part of this venue, the fare isn’t to be forgotten, either. Dine on delicious ceviche, flatbreads and desserts during a daytime party celebrating one of your favorite gals in this sophisticated Charlotte staple.
Because brunch is often synonymous with bridal shower, we couldn’t leave out one of Charlotte’s newest and most beautiful brunch spots. La Belle Helene, an upscale French concept, has breakfast cocktails, croissants in baskets, oysters, crepes and other favorites on its brunch menu. And did we mention the interior makes you feel famous? Shower your bride under the iconic light fixtures demanding drama in the main dining room or rent out one of the private spaces for a special experience.
Rooftops with a view
For an evening shower with a chic city setting, take the ladies up to one of Charlotte’s rooftop lounges that offer sensational skyline views. Not only will you have the perfect setting for photos, but a rooftop overlooking the Queen City is a fabulous spot for the urbanite who loves showing off her latest accessory finds at local boutiques. Give the diva in your life her moment to shine with this posh bridal shower venue idea.
