When you’re in the throes of planning your dream wedding, it’s easy to go from happily motivated to overwhelmed and fatigued all in the same day. As a recent bride, I found that the best way to get back into that creative state of mind was to attend a low-key yet inspired bridal event—especially one that serves up plenty of eye candy and, of course, bubbly.

Whether you’re a bridesmaid helping out your BFF or you are the actual bride-to-be, here are a few boutique-style events that are worth a pit-stop with your fiance or friends, starting tonight.
