Some brides come to the table knowing what they want for their shower, and they’ve been planning the day since they were five. Others have no idea what they want, and may need the shower planner’s help deciding between watercolor shower invitations or Studio Basics bridal shower invitations. When she comes to you with panic in her eyes because she isn’t sure what she wants, try one of these five ideas that every bride is sure to love.
If she’s laid back and low key about the theme of the shower, but you still want it to reflect who she is, try doing a color themed shower with her favorite color. Use decorations, napkins, and flowers that are her favorite color, and try to match all your food to that same shade. Build your theme around that hue.
You’ve got to plan a menu anyway, and why not keep it simple? Try throwing a shower in the middle of the day with all her favorite breakfast treats and mimosas. Whip up heart shaped waffles or pancakes and send each guest home with heart shaped party favors to change the brunch from a casual get-together to a themed bridal shower.
When you send out your bridal shower invitations, give each guest a specific holiday. Ask them to buy a gift for that holiday for the bride and groom, and they become family heirlooms that the couple will have from the beginning of their marriage.
Take the bride and her bridesmaids and escape for a day to a local spa. Enjoy manicures, massages, and facials together. Give out linen hand towels, soaps, or bottles of bath oil as party favors and gifts.
Take the letters of the bride’s name, and center your shower around those particular letters of the alphabet. Give each guest a letter and encourage them to pick a gift that corresponds with that letter. This not only gives the gift more meaning, but requires that the guests put a lot of thought into what they give the bride and groom.
Regardless of what type of theme you choose for the shower, the important point is that the bride feels happy and cherished on her special day. As her best friend, it’s your job to plan an event that fits her personality and shows how much you care about her.
