Inspiring Bridal Shower Ideas

Are you in charge of throwing a Bridal Shower for your friend? Are you a bit stressed about it all? Don’t be. Here we have a few creative ideas to get you on your way to hosting the PERFECT Bridal Shower for the bride to be:

Stock the Bar Shower- For the couple who loves to entertain, invite guests to bring barware and booze as gifts, and have a mixologist teach everyone to make specialty drinks. This could even be open to couples and both the bride and groom to be can be involved!

Cookbook Shower- If your couple loves cooking and eating (or if you know your friend can use a few pointers in the kitchen) they’ll love to add some new cookbooks and to their collection! You could also ask the guests to please bring a family favorite recipe on a recipe card along with their gift.

Around the Clock Shower-Assign each guest a specific time slot (i.e. 8 AM, 6 PM, 9 PM, etc.); they will use that time to influence their gift. For example, a guest with the 8 AM slot might bring a breakfast-themed gift basket, while a guest with the 6 PM slot might bring dishes.

A Philanthropy Shower-For the ultra-giving couple (or the couple who is just uncomfortable asking for gifts), each attendee donates money to a charity in the couple’s name and shares the info about the charity at the shower. You could also do a charity-focused activity at the shower (think: making tie-together blankets for foster kids or paper flowers for a local nursing home).

Don’t forget to breathe, have fun and take lots of photos. And don’t worry, she will love whatever you do because it comes from the heart!
