Hosting a shower in honor of your bestie bride-to-be? The recipe for an unforgettable wedding shower is simple: a great group of girls, some thoughtful gifts, and—of course—a pretty party scene! Dress up your space with some of these decorative accents and festive accessories and prepare to throw a fabulous bridal bash she’ll always remember.
While having a bridal shower is totally optional, it is a fun way to celebrate with your nearest and dearest before the wedding. Usually, the bridal shower is hosted by the maid of honor and bridal party, but it’s also fine for family members, the groom’s mom’s friends, or other important people in your life to throw you a shower. And though most of the time the bride does not play a role in planning the shower, we thought it would be a good idea to share the most important elements of this celebration.
Bridal showers can take place in a variety of locations. A restaurant or hotel can be convenient – food and decor all in one place – but we’ve also seen showers take place at someone’s home, a park, or even something super-creative like an art gallery.
