Planning a Bridal Shower

Bridal showers are a time honored wedding tradition typically shared with close girlfriends and family one to three months before the big day. A bridal shower is the perfect event for bringing family and friends together to celebrate the bride-to-be individually and shower her with love. Whether you’re planning a brunch or a tea party for an upcoming shower, there are several key elements that should not be overlooked!

Invitations

Once you’ve landed on a theme for the shower partner up with an invitation designer to ensure the invitations reflect the party details and desired aesthetic perfectly. Invitations should be sent out four to six weeks before the shower and contain all information guests will need including location, RSVP details, the general theme, what to bring, the beginning and end times, and any other relevant information.

Décor

Nothing will help make the day feel more special, fun, and beautiful than the décor! From balloons and tassled garlands to lace and flowers, when it comes to celebrating a bride more is always best! At bridal showers, it’s good to have plenty of on-theme signage to help minimize confusion such as yard signs and signs indicating where guests can find the gift table, bathroom, drinks, etc.

To make things more personalized, try decorating with framed baby photos of the bride, creating a picture collage in the shape of her new initials, or getting custom signs and banners made with the wedding hashtag.

Food & Drinks

When planning the food and drinks you want to serve, don’t be afraid to get creative and have a bit of fun. For a brunch themed shower, set up a mimosa bar and serve doughnuts, scones, coffee and even miniature chicken and waffles. A Paris themed shower could offer guests croissants, macaroons and French wines, cheeses and desserts.

Backdrop

Party backdrops are visually appealing focal points that can also serve as photo backdrops. It will be the go-to spot to take pictures for the day while ensuring they turn out beautifully every time. Build your own backdrop with a solid background and decorate it with a bride-to-be banner, flowers, balloons, and other on-theme décor.

Games

The most exciting part of a bridal shower is getting to play all of the games! Games can be totally personalized, generic, or a mixture of both. Common bridal shower games include scratch-off bingo, ‘how well do you know the bride,’ scavenger hunts, mad libs, and a contest to see which team can make the best wedding dress out of toilet paper.

Great Wedding Party Favor Ideas

Planning a wedding is overwhelming- because there are so many details to decide on. Once you establish your guest list, you will want to consider the types of party favors you want to gift them to show your appreciation. From edible treats to customized novelties, read this blog post for some wedding party favor suggestions.

Desserts

The sky is the limit with sweet favors, so don’t be afraid to express your creativity with your choices. From individually packaged baking mixes and baked goods to macarons and much more, you can’t go wrong with a simple sugary treat. Party guests will be happy to head home with something sweet to enjoy on their way. Whether you order desserts from your favorite bakery or prepare them in your home, party guests will appreciate the gesture of an edible party favor.

Customized Merchandise

Another great way to thank party guests for celebrating with you is by giving them personalized gifts. From custom blankets with the guests’ names on them to hats embroidered with the wedding date, there are many ways to give your guests a unique novelty item. Those who have hired a DJ and a dancefloor should consider gifting dancing guests a pair of sandals that are decorated using your event’s theme colors. People will be more than happy to kick off their high heels in exchange for the adorned flats.

Bubbly Favors

You can keep the party going past the end of your wedding celebration with a unique alcoholic drink. Great party favor drinks include mini champagne bottles and mini cocktail kits. Your guests will be delighted to take home a great beverage that will remind them of the occasion. You can even add custom name labels and décor to the bottles to give them a personalized flair. Champagne, wine, and beer are all great wedding favors that everyone will love.

Flower Power

People love being able to craft their own floral bouquet at the end of a wedding celebration. Purchase a selection of fresh cut flowers and allow people to fill their own vase or pail with the flowers of their choice. This sentimental favor will be a total hit.

Wedding party planning doesn’t have to be so stressful. Give these gifts to your friends and family as party favors and your event will be a success. For customized wedding invitations, party favors, and more, you should call on us at Forever Friends, where we are dedicated to excellence.
