Your best friend, daughter or sister’s wedding day is around the corner and you get the awesome privilege of planning the biggest pre-wedding party there is – the Bridal Shower! There are so many options out there on how to throw a smashing celebration, but what’s right for this girl? Every woman has her own personality and preferences, so it can be hard deciding what to plan for her shower. But don’t worry, we found the best bridal shower ideas that will work for any bride-to-be.
Does this girl and her bae LOVE something in particular, like hiking, or the beach? If so, why not host this bridal shower with that theme in mind. Not only will it be adorable and personalized, it will make your life easier as you now have something to base all of your food, decor and gift decisions off of. Check out these fun bridal shower theme ideas!
If that bride is into anything artsy or crafty, why not have a painting party? You could get some canvases and let people go wild with painting whatever they’d like (even splatter painting is a blast when done outdoors), get a paint by numbers for the less confident artists in the room, or go to a fun painting class.
Everyone likes food, but some people LOVE it. If you have a foodie girl on your hands, throw her a party that she’ll love – a cooking class! Bring in a friend that is a chef to teach some fun quick appetizers that will also supplement your food for the party. Or have a fun Iron Chef competition between all the guests!
The bride-to-be might love to be active and enjoy the great outdoors, so don’t stop her on the bridal shower day! Take the crew for a small hike and a simple picnic. Or enjoy a short drive to a lake to spend a few hours on the beach with the girls. You can always have the guests drop off their gifts at the host’s home and everyone carpool to the outdoor destination. Then come back for treats and gift opening after the activity.
Keep that classy girl happy with a sleek, beautiful bridal shower theme inspired by Paris or the bride’s favorite love story.
Of course no party is complete without delicious food! You might decide to stick with sweet treats or add in some savory snacks. Whatever you choose, find a fun way to make it personal for the bride. Below are some fun ideas!
