Spring has arrived, and with that comes warmer weather, longer days, and a bridal shower… or five. Whether you’re a blushing bride to be, or will be standing next to your bestie as she says “I do” to her forever love and have taken on hosting duties, our tips for hosting a bridal shower will be able to get you through a season of celebrating love!
Brainstorm a Guest List As Soon as Possible
Knowing this might not be the only bridal shower your bride to be will be attending, it’s best to get a date on the calendar as soon as possible. It’s important to consult the important people in the bride’s life – her mom, any sisters, bridesmaids – to make sure there is one date everyone can agree on.
Make It Personal
Personal touches throughout the bridal shower make it that much more special for the bride to be. From a sweet streamer with her new last name to personalized napkins with her wedding hashtag or cute saying, adding a personal touch to the bridal shower has never been easier. Etsy is one of our favorite places to shop for personalized products!
Create a Theme
Determining a theme for the bridal shower will make every aspect of planning much easier for you, and much more enjoyable for those attending! From the invitations to the sweet treats, keeping in theme is a nice touch that guests will not forget. From seasonal trends to playing off the bride’s favorite movie, there are so many themes to choose from to make the day as unique as the bride herself!
Cater to All Guests
While bridal shower season may align perfectly with rosé season, keep in mind that not all guests will want to indulge in this summer drink. Providing a combination of coffees, teas and juices along with any other cocktail gives your guests a nice selection.
Make It All About the Bride
It may seem like common sense, but remember to take the bride’s thoughts and feelings into account during the bridal shower. Does the bride feel uncomfortable playing traditional shower games? Don’t include those as part of the program. At the end of the day, you’re all there to shower the bride with gifts and love, and that’s the most important part!
