Types of Bridal Shower Parties
As you customize your bridal shower invitations, it’s important to think of what kind of bridal shower party you’re going to throw for the bride. It should be something that is in tune with her desires. A bridal brunch can please just about any bride, though maybe she’d prefer something tropical and outdoors for summery weather. You can have a poolside oasis or even a fancy high tea.
If she’s more of a hands-on bride, try a cooking class bridal shower. Wine tasting bridal showers are also very popular and if she loves wine, she will adore this theme. Bridal showers with crafts or even a day at the spa are other ways for her to enjoy her time with the ladies she loves.
Here are a few bridal shower party themes that you can consider:
- Classic England-inspired tea party. It usually involves a great variety of desserts, aromatic tea and lovely conversations.
- Boho chic. A garden party with the fresh take of a bohemian style is a hot trend nowadays. Floral patterns and rich color palettes make this party look remarkable.
- Retro glamor. Full of vintage decor, this theme creates a unique nostalgic atmosphere.
- Floral fiesta. Just add more flowers. What woman wouldn't like that?
- Modern rustic wedding shower. Rustic and country theme becomes more and more popular these days. Why not throw a rustic party for a future bride?
- Garden party. Host a soiree at the backyard, have engaging conversations, and listen to relaxing music. This is exactly what this party is for.
- Bubbly shower. This one is all about champagne, sweets, and laughter. The perfect mix for a pre-wedding party.
Actually, there are dozens of bridal shower themes that you can choose from and you will definitely find the one that mirrors your personality and matches your personal mood and style. Just remember that it's all about the atmosphere, not an entourage. You can raise a toast to celebrate bride-to-be at a cozy kitchen with champagne or throw a pool party with a bunch of cocktails. Both options can work perfectly fine and provide tons of memorable moments. The format is secondary, the vibes created by loved ones are priceless.
Recently a new format started becoming more popular as some couples prefer to celebrate together with a couple's shower where both men and women are invited. It’s usually reserved for close family and friends of the couple and can be a more inclusive twist on the traditional. Whatever you plan, your bridal shower invitation can mirror the theme and set a tone from the very beginning!
Etiquette Rules for Bridal Shower Invitations
The bride should never be tasked with sending her own bridal shower invitations. If you’re the maid of honor, a bridesmaid, or a relative, the invitations should come from the host. As part of the bridal party, if you offered to help with bridal shower invitations, it would be a lovely gesture.
Should you be the host of the bridal shower, you’ll be responsible for the cost of the bridal shower invitations, though if you’re hosting with others, it’s a good protocol for the team to split the costs.
A good bridal shower will last around 3 hours or more. It should include food and activities that match the theme of the event. Making a timeline of the activities to create a rough schedule will help ensure everyone has a wonderful time, especially your guest of honor!
