Tis the season for weddings and formal events. Planning the perfect bridal shower is an integral part of the wedding tradition! Not only are you celebrating the bride, but it gives a chance for friends and family to get to know each other before the big day. When it comes to the bridal shower, the planning is much simpler than the wedding itself, there’s no need to go over the top to host a lovely and memorable event.
Build Your Budget
Before you begin making any of your bridal shower plans – the first step should always be to build a budget. Creating and sticking to a budget can help you and other planners develop a clear framework for the event to reduce tension and eliminate any potential disagreements.
Set A Date and Send Invites
Before you send the official invites, it’s a good idea to consult with the bride to be and close friends and family to ensure that as many of the important guests as possible will be able to make it. If the bride’s friends and family are long distance, it may be more pressing for them to make it to the wedding than the shower. However, having invitations sent out early, two months before the date, can help accommodate more individuals. This time frame also allows for guests to properly plan and RSVP so that you will have the ability to plan your menu and other steps.
Choose A Theme
Creating a consistent theme for your bridal shower can help make even a budget event seem high end. While you don’t need to make the theme too specific, creating a consistent color palette and motif can help tie the event together in an elegant way.
Plan Your Favors
At the end of the day, having a little something to pass out to thank guests for coming and celebrating with you is a lovely touch. Small gift bags that stick with your theme with a custom frosted cookie or personalized sunglasses are an elegant and simple option.
