Tips for a Wonderful Wedding Shower

Planning a bridal shower can sometimes seem like a daunting task, it is not only something that the bride is often looking forward too, it is an event she will cherish her whole life—no stress on you, right?! But, with a little planning and some creative and fun ideas, both she and the guests will have a great time, and so will you!

Get away: If you are looking for an alternative to the traditional bridal shower, a favorite idea is a shower get-away! Take the bride-to-be and friends on spa day, take dance lessons, go to the beach, on a wine tasting… there are so many fun ideas once you are no longer restricted to a traditional house party, that will not only lessen the stress, but increase the fun!

Invites: Be sure to send guests a formal invitation, or even an evite. This will set the tone and theme—and be a nice memento for the bride afterward. Include any special requests, such as asking the guests to include a change of clothes, photograph of them with the bride, or favorite recipe.

Gifts: Set up a place to put the gifts ahead of time, so that they can be saved until the end of the party, but be sure to secure the cards with tape, (sometimes they fall off, causing confusion later on) to help keep things straight. When gifts are opened, Be sure to put someone in charge of writing down who gave what, so that the bride can easily write her thank-yous later, and snap photos of the bride with the presents and the guests as well, to include in the note, and as a reminder to the bride, which mixing bowl came from whom!

You can create a fabulous shower for the bride-to-be by just remembering these key aspects of the event. But most of all- have fun!
