One of the most exciting parts of being a bridesmaid is getting to plan a bridal shower! Today’s showers are fun and festive events, and you can do just about anything you want for the bride. If she’s not in to the traditional formal shower, have a small party for her at her favorite local pub instead. If she’s a girly girl and wants the traditional experience, then you can load up on fun and cheesy games and have an afternoon Tea!
You can create a fun and interactive day by adding a theme to the shower (besides the obvious – weddings!). Have a jewelry themed shower and have guests bring gifts inspired by different gemstones, and then let everyone make fun craft “jewelry” for the bride to wear on her wedding day. DaVinci Beads would make wonderful favors and prizes during games.
For a more relaxing event, why not host the shower in a friend’s home and treat everyone to a mini spa day? You can get at home kits for facials and give out little gift bags full of pedicure and manicure tools to all the guests. It’s a great way for all the women of the family to bond and allows the bride to feel like a queen during her shower.
Whatever theme you choose, have fun with the day. It’s a joyous occasion and the party should reflect the bride’s tastes and be a fun day for everyone. What are some of your favorite shower activities? Share the best showers you’ve ever been to and we’ll post them here and on Facebook!
