Wedding showers can be for the bride, the groom, or both. The wedding shower is a time to celebrate upcoming nuptials, and to give the couple a time to relax and enjoy themselves before the wedding. On June 27, 2013, The Daily Meal published an article detailing how to plan a wedding shower, and TheBrideDesign.com is expanding on this article to give tips on creating a beautiful shower.
1. Think Theme
Whether the shower is large or small, a theme is usually the first place to start. If the couple has a hobby or activity they enjoy, start there. Plan bridal shower party favors around the theme, and play it up. Edible favors are always a hit, and usually include theme items and candy.
2. Talk With the Bride
Get an idea of what the bride is expecting at the shower. Ask her for ideas, along with what she’d like to eat. Many brides will leave this to the party planner, but it’s polite to ask for insight and permission before planning.
3. Choose Décor
Parties are seeing a huge surge in personalization and handmade items. Search online for items that can be personalized, including printable party kits, pennant banners, water bottle labels, and custom invitations. If it’s a vibrant Candy Land themed party, maybe order a small or giant Wizard Spiral gumball machine to add to the décor.
4. Pick a Menu
Pick foods that the bride and groom will enjoy, and that will coincide with the theme of the shower. If it’s camping themed, choose an outdoor BBQ menu.
If it’s more formal, a Parisian themed menu may be perfect. Whatever the theme, be sure to choose foods that will complement the event.
