To Plan The Perfect Bridal Shower: Choose A Theme

Organizing a bridal shower can seem a little daunting, especially if the responsibility falls entirely to you. If you don’t know where to start then ask friends and family to lend a hand. Try to match the items on your to-do list with the person who is best suited to carrying out that task. If your best friend has a sweet tooth, send her off to find edible cake decorations or call the catering company. Sharing the responsibility and delegating tasks will help ease your stress and give you more time to think creatively and constructively.

Bridal Shower Themes

Choosing a theme is perhaps the most fun part of planning a bridal shower. You can really let your imagination run free and make the decorations as extravagant or as simple as you like. Share your ideas with your friends to see what they contribute to your ideas and you’ll soon find yourselves bouncing from one great idea to another.

Bridal Shower Invitations

Give your guests a hint of what’s to come on the bridal shower day by sending out invitations linked to the chosen theme. Local stationery stores will provide you with a wide array of different styles or you could even order personalized invitations. If you prefer to make your own, buy some white card and decorate your invitations with whatever tickles your fancy in the local craft store. Write your invitations by hand or use a calligraphy stencil for an elegant touch.

Bridal Shower Favors

Bridal shower favors can come in all shapes and sizes so don’t be afraid to think outside the box when it comes to choosing favors that match your theme. Personalized favors are always appreciated by guests; think about writing cute thank you notes. If you know a friend loves going to the beach, then give her a little bag of seashells or give an avid reader a book of friendship quotations. Take a look around local stores and markets for inspiration. You are sure to find what you are looking for.

Bridal Shower Food

Buffet style food is, by far, the best option, as heavy meals will leave your guests feeling fill and encourage inactivity. You can serve a range of delicious finger foods or simply stick to one type of food such as cheese accompanied with vintage wines. Sweet desserts and punch would work well with a Tea Party theme or let guests have fun mixing their own fruity cocktails. Make sure you give guests a choice of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks.

Bridal Shower Games

Different games and activities give guests a chance to move around, interact and get to know one another better. There’s always room for laughter at a bridal shower so entertain guests with a variety of well loved games. For the younger and more flexible guests, choose games like Twister, Jenga and Musical Chairs. Pass the Parcel is an all time favorite as well as Bingo and Scavenger Hunts. Fill a bowl with candy for guests who take part and keep some favors aside for those who win.
