Morning-of Bridal Party Inspiration Shoot with Keurig (Plus a Keurig Brewer Giveaway!)

Brittny Drye Founder + Editor-in-Chief of Love Inc. Magazine | On-Air Wedding Expert | LGBTQ+ Inclusivity in the Wedding Industry

The getting ready photos of a bride and her bridesmaids are some of the most fun, playful moments captured during the big day. Matching robes, inside jokes and music blasting as you get pampered with hair and makeup … it's the perfect start to the best day ever. The only downside is the early wakeup call. Thank goodness for coffee, right? And with all that photography going on, we love the idea of setting up a small stylized station for your java. Oh and your bridesmaids will love you for it! So we partnered with Keurig to brew up an inspiration shoot filled with delicious coffee, BFFs, cute confections, monogrammed mugs and more.

We’re a bit obsessed with Keurig … once you try it, you’ll never go back to the regular pot of joe. Fresh coffee or espresso (every. single. time.) in less than a minute with flavor options that can rival any brick-and-mortar shop latte. Yes, please!

As you probably already know by now, details play a big role in the wedding day but the last thing you want is yet another location to design. Luckily, all you really need is a brewing station, mugs and K-cups on hand for an instant caffeine fix. But if you’re like us, you can’t help but give it a little something special. Create an instantly styled station by filling up vases with coffee beans and offering pretty desserts—it's never too early for macarons! We found the coffee-themed spoons and stirrers on Etsy (where else?) and don’t forget the milk and sugar but also offer cinnamon and cocoa powders for added indulgence. And Keurig’s latest Elite and MINI Brewing System collections come in a rainbow of hues, from bridal white to aqua, orchid and rhubarb, so you can even pick one that matches your wedding palette for a pop of color. Tip: transfer your Keurig to the reception site to give guests a late-night caffeine boost to stay on the dance floor!

[UPDATED JUNE 30, 2014: This giveaway has come to a close. Congratulations to June, our winner and new proud owner of a bright and shiny Keurig brewer! Be sure to stay tuned for future contests and giveaways.]
