7 Ideas for an Unforgettable Bridal Shower

7 Ideas for an Unforgettable Bridal Shower

June 01, 2021

With COVID restrictions lifting, typical wedding parties and festivities are slowly but surely returning, and we couldn’t be more excited. If you’re in charge of the bridal shower, you’re probably racking your brain on ways to make the shower perfect—especially if you’re planning for a bride who had her original wedding plans disrupted last year. The bridal shower is completely focused on the bride, so it’s important to plan unique details that suit her personality and make her feel special. Below, read seven of our favorite bridal shower trends that can easily be adapted and changed to fit your bride:

 

Pick a Unique Theme

 

 

When it comes to choosing seating, floral arrangements, and other decorations, think outside the box! Just because a piece of furniture usually belongs inside doesn’t mean it can’t come outdoors for a few hours for your shower.

 

Get Creative with Your Decor

Have a Picnic

 

 

Planning for a free-spirited bride? Consider having a picnic! It automatically creates that boho atmosphere, and gives the entire shower a laid-back vibe she’ll love. Or, you could take the picnic in a more elegant, garden party direction for brides who love something laid-back yet fancy.

 

Set Up a Candy Bar

 

 

For brides with a sweet tooth, set up a candy bar. This is easy to put together, looks great, and is typically a crowd-pleaser—you can’t go wrong! Find sweet treats in colors that match the rest of the decor, and the candy bar itself becomes a decoration.

 

Give Custom Favors

 

 

Custom favors don’t have to be too complicated. Something as simple as a cute cookie from a local bakery inspired by the bride’s favorite things or even a bride’s favorite snack or candy in a DIY-packaging can give the shower that perfect just-for-you touch to make the bride feel special.

 

DIY Photo Backdrop

 

 

If your bride loves an Instagram-worthy moment, put together a photo backdrop for the shower! Carefully placed balloons, streamers, and flowers can make a wall a great spot for the bride and guests to get pictures.

 

Don't Be Afraid to Make It Fun

 

 

While the title “bridal shower” brings to mind formal events, it’s only as formal as you make it! If the bride is someone who wants to have games and drinks and silly favors, plan accordingly. Find ways to make the bridal shower both a fun party for everyone and a special event honoring your friend’s upcoming marriage!
