Sex and the City Bridal Shower

With Sex and the City premiering this week, we couldn't resist posting the uber-fabulous bridal shower thrown this past weekend for one of our Twirl Talk fans, Meagan, in New York City.

The event began with a mystery text instructing the bride to go home and look in her closet.  There she found a little black dress, hot pink accessories, and instructions to await her transportation that would arrive at 5:30pm.

At 5:30pm a taxi cab (how New York!) pulled up to take her to the shower destination, where she was met by her father, her future father-in-law, her brother, and her bridesmaids' fathers, who had been serving as valets for the evening.  
From there, she was welcomed to the SATC-themed bash by her bridesmaids and their accommodating hubbies, who dressed in tuxedo tees and served food and drink at the party.
No SATC-related detail was left out:
  • Guests' stiletto'ed invite asked them to don the apparel of their favorite SATC character and a "costume contest" was later held, with the bride acting as judge.
  • Upon arrival, guests were instructed to select name tags indicating which SATC-character they most identified with: Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda
  • Hot pink and black were the colors of the evening
  • Flirtinis and cosmopolitans were the signature cocktails of the evening, served in hot pink martini glasses

  • Table centerpieces were comprised of black feathers, hot pink hydrangeas, and "diamonds"
  • A pink-and-black New York City skyline cake was baked using the Magnolia Bakery recipe and was adorned with a Manolo Blahnik and pearl necklace


  • The Sex & the City Movie soundtrack was playing throughout the evening
  • Guests received copies of the Sex & the City Movie DVD as prizes for the night's various games
  • The bride received a SATC-themed gift from her bridesmaids, which included a gift bag for each character... each filled with character-appropriate lingerie (think conservative and classy for Charlotte; leopard print for Samantha)

What an amazing group of friends Meagan has - I think Carrie, Samantha, Miranda, and Charlotte would approve!
