Planning a Bridal Shower

Posted on: June 8, 2008

Bridal showers are a great tradition that continues to be a big part of helping newlyweds get started with their new life together. The purpose of a bridal shower is for family and friends to have a celebration where gifts are given to the couple to help them get established while having a great time socializing with the bride. As the bridesmaid or maid-of-honor, you will be in charge of planning the bridal shower.

The following suggestions will help you get started and host the best bridal shower ever given.

• This is a special day for the bride so make sure everything revolves around her and that she does not have any worries on this day. Everything should cater to her interests.

• Have the bride register for gifts so the guest will have an idea of what items are needed.

• Use the wedding guest list to determine who to invite to the bridal shower, do not add to the list or exclude anyone on the wedding list.

• Talk to the bride-to-be to find out if she wants the traditional shower where only girls are invited or if she would like for it to be an event for couples.

• Choose a theme for the bridal shower that coincides with the guest list.

• Schedule the bridal shower between three to eight weeks before the wedding date and make sure it is set for a convenient time and place for the guests and bride.

• Send out invitations in time for the guest to make plans to attend. Be sure and specify the type of bridal shower and instructions on where and when it will be held.

• Decide what foods, games and other activities will be provided at the bridal shower.

• Remember the party favors for the entire guest.

Bridal showers are meant to be fun and relaxing. This is the time for family and friends to share stories and show how much they support the bride. It is important to provide a relaxing atmosphere where everyone can be themselves.

I agree with many of your suggestions..great tips! Especially the theme. Those can be really fun to play with, like Hawaiian, couples showers (been to one..alot of fun) even a chocolate shower. Now that one was really great.
We had chocolate dipped fruit, everything chocolate you can think of (some stuff for the bride a little off color!).

I am planning a bridal shower , actually a couples shower for very dear friends of ours .
I need help with a wishing well saying .

any thought or ideas ????

Songs can make great sayings – what are their favorite songs? Another idea would be to use a phrase from a greeting card.
