A wedding wouldn’t quite be the same without all the preparations beforehand, such as the hen and stag parties and of course a suitable bridal shower to see the bride on her merry way. The custom originated in the 1890s and has continued to be popular in many countries all over the world. Traditions and ideas have changed over time but the same principles remain in place. The bride will be showered in lavish gifts and the event itself is to be enjoyed by everyone involved. There are so many ways to celebrate a bridal shower you just need a little inspiration from us and a touch of organization in place to make sure you get the best out of your bridal shower.
Make sure you impress the bride with stunning invitations; this is not an area to relax on. Details can be pretty simple and straight to the point, it’s also a way to get information on where the bride and groom have registered for gifts, that way this embarrassing duty can be lifted from the bride.

Nibbles and little sweet treats are perfect for this kind of occasion. Make sure you choose long standing snacks that will survive certain weather conditions such as heat or long periods of time. Mix healthy light snacks with those guilty little treats that way guests won’t feel too sinful for over indulging.
Treat the ladies to a fancy cocktail and if you really feel like pushing the boat out, why not set up a champagne bar. It will really make everyone feel giddy and excited and will also add a touch of class to this special event.
There is an endless list of games you can play, but the idea is to keep the fun alive and not allow things to become too serious. Keep games light hearted and non competitive, the last problem you need before the wedding is a fight between close friends. Eek!
