Nine Top Tips For Planning A Bridal Shower



Bridal showers bring friends and family together in a fun and relaxing atmosphere to celebrate the bride and groom’s upcoming wedding. Guests share memories, they tell stories and they shower the bride with gifts to help her and her husband in the future. The responsibility of organizing this special event usually falls on the maid-of-honor or one of the bridesmaids. Due to this enormous responsibility, here are nine top tips to put you on the right path to planning the best bridal shower ever.

Tip 1 – Remember the bride is the most important person at the shower; make sure everything revolves around her. Every detail of the shower should keep her at the center of attention. Ensure that she’s stress free on this really special occasion.

Tip 2 – Have the bride register her gifts at a local store that way she won’t receive two gifts that are the same or a gift she’ll never use.

Tip 3 – When you want to create the best bridal shower guest list, use the wedding guest list as a guide. Don’t be tempted to invite people who aren’t invited to the wedding or exclude those on the guest list.

Tip 4 – As this is the bride’s special day, ask her what her preferences are regarding the style of her shower. Would she like a traditional shower or would she rather prefer a couples-only shower.

Tip 5 – Choose a bridal shower theme, which reflects the personality of the bride and suits the guest list.

Tip 6 – The best time to throw a bridal shower is three to eight weeks before the big day. Make sure the time and date you’ve chosen for the shower is convenient for the bride and her guests.

Tip 7 – Don’t send out bridal shower invitations too late because you’ll need to give everybody enough time to make arrangements and buy gifts. Include on your invitations the bride’s name, date, time, location, the type of shower you’re throwing and any other relevant information you can think of.

Tip 8 – Put plenty of time aside for deciding on the food, games and activities that will delight the guests and ensure everybody has a good time.

Tip 9 – Be sure and have beautiful bridal shower favors for your guests to make it special and memorable. You’ll need party favors for each guest on the list.
