Calling all hopeless romantics, Bachelor nation fans, and rom-com fanatics!! A charming proposal deserves a charming bridal shower, and there’s nothing that says allure like an intimate garden celebration. Bachelor in Paradise member, Ashley Iaconetti, has landed the man of her dreams, so she brought some of her closest friends and family together to cheers to her love-at-first-sight engagement. The celebration was well attended and took place on a beautiful summery evening in North Hollywood. Fellow Bachelor in Paradise winner, Jade Roper, showed up rocking her baby bump of 8 months. Jade’s husband, Tanner Tolbert, and Ashley’s soon-to-be hubby, Jared Haibon, made appearances at the end of the evening and love was DEFINITELY in the air. The Bachelor really does bring people together!
It was a gorgeous event filled with gorgeous people, string lights and candles lit up the space showcasing the picturesque set-up. The guests shared some laughs trying to draw up their worst nightmare of a bridesmaid dress and reminisced on stories about Ashley and Jared. It was an unforgettable night and we are so excited to share all the captivating details with you! Ready to feel inspired by this Rom-Com themed bridal shower?! Yeah, we thought so. Read on to hear more about the planning process and how this stunning bridal shower was brought to life!
When event producer, Be Inspired PR heard of Ashley’s love for romantic comedies, they curated a top-notch vendor team to pull off the perfect bridal shower with amazing glam & romantic elements. Event Designer, Detailed Touch Events really played up the Bachelor alum’s girly & sexy personality, incorporating rose and pink tones along with rose gold and black accents throughout The Garland. Showcased throughout the venue with glamorous lounge seating from Collective Rentals and feminine, luxe floral designs by Bloominous the day was simply stunning. Those who have followed along with Ashley on the Bachelor– including Bachelor in Paradise and Bachelor Winter Games– know that Ashley and her hubby to be, Jared Haibon’s journey has felt a lot like a typical Hollywood rom-com. What better way to welcome Ashley’s closest friends and family into her world than with a “When Jared Met Ashley” sign done by Creative Amme and paper elements by Shindig Bespoke that continued to showcase her passion for love stories. Even better, Jenny Quicksall was able to capture all the fun and excitement shared between Iaconetti and her loved ones which included a movie viewing area, playing another one of Ashley’s favorite movies, 27 Dresses.
How stunning is this table setting? La Tavola Linen hit the mark with a lilac velvet tablecloth and black velvet napkins.

The Wild Posy kept guests cool with the cutest (and most delicious) popsicles and custom ice cream sandwichh treats. Yum!
Cheers to Ashley and Jared! Glasses were kept full and toasts were accompanied by a bar fully stocked with One Hope wine. And yes, you are correct…they were topped off with cotton candy!
