The Best Ever Bridal Shower

June 10, 2015 / no comments

What is a bridal shower without the perfect theme to begin the fun!? Not only does it look great, but it sparks a creative inspiration for whatever activities you are looking to have. For instance, having a theme, gives guidance towards which games to play, where it should be held, what food should be served and how you and your guests should dress! In addition, having a theme will allow you to design your invitations accordingly; sending your guests their first hint as to what kind of day they can expect to have. Not only does holding a themed bridal shower help guide your itinerary for the day, it also makes planning a lot more fun!

Below is a list of equally charming bridal shower themes you could imitate when it comes time to hosting yours.

From cookies to cupcakes, Jacqui Stanzel does it all, making her one of RSVP Events favourite cake creators!

With the endless amount of options Jacqui offers, it is no secret she has a deep love for baking and decorating cakes. Since the age of five, Jacqui has had a passion for cake decor and has taken many different courses to perfect her talents. Not only does Jacqui bake all her cakes from scratch, but believes in using only the finest ingredients in everything made at JS Creations.



J S Creations Cake Ottawa

JS Creations offers eight scrumptious cake flavours as well as choice of your own icing and filling flavour. However, it doesn’t stop there; Jacqui makes wildly delicious cookies and has also perfected the art of baking French macaroons. In addition to this, JS Creations caters to customers with food intolerances as well. Therefore, customers do not have to worry about missing out, as Jacqui provides gluten free/dairy free options such as apple, vanilla or chocolate cookies!


When it comes time to cutting the cake, Jacqui seems to never fail at making every RSVP couple overjoyed with their delicious dessert. For this reason, we highly recommend JS Creations as a top choice when simply looking for a treat or your dream cake come true!

Holding your Wedding bouquet

February 10, 2014 / no comments


Ever wondered what the right way of holding your wedding bouquet is? Holding it way to high is definitely not the right way. Looking through wedding blogs and magazine, I often see the bride holding the bouquet I see lots brides to high. You are hiding your face and most importantly the beautiful details on your wedding dress! Lower the bouquet a little. The rule is that your thumbs should be at your belly button or as close to it as possible. Have your bouquet turned forward slightly (If possible, hide the stem).
