You’ll hear a thousand times that planning a wedding is a huge undertaking, requiring dress fittings, venue bookings, cake tastings, and so much more. What you don’t hear much about is the planning of the bridal shower! Your bridal shower is an important event leading up to your wedding that you will remember for the rest of your life…you don’t want to skimp here! There are so many ways that you can create a unique and memorable event that your guests are guaranteed to talk about for years to come.

Once you’ve chosen a theme or color scheme to follow throughout the planning of the event, everything else will come easily. Pick out table decorations, foods, games, and music to play into the whole feel of your event. For example, if you’re planning a nautical-themed party, order some sailboat votive candles, starfish-shaped cookies, lighthouse place card holders, etc. Don’t forget to pick out unique bridal shower favors that your guests are sure to love!

Just remember that the bride has nothing to do with planning a bridal shower and no one is obligated to host one, not even the bridesmaids. A shower should be offered by a non-family member or member of the bridal party, and must be invited to the wedding.

A tip I recommend to my diy wedding flower brides is that they consider performing a test run on their wedding flowers by arranging similar diy flowers for their shower. Many brides opt this and after executing a flawless run, they return to place their final wedding flower order.

Isn’t it the Maid of Honor that is in charge of the bridal shower? It takes a lot of planning to have a successful bridal shower. Make sure that the theme you are going to choose will be appreciated and enjoyed by the bride.

I agree that the bride really has nothing to do in the preparation of her bridal shower. It’s usually the friends of the bride that do the preparation and planning.

A bridal shower would have been fun. I didn’t have one for my wedding. We don’t have a concept of bridal shower in India. But there are so many other small function before the wedding. It’s all fun and stressful. 😉
