Wedding Shower Ideas




Here is an outline of a wedding shower QUESTION to get you on your way to organizing a great shower party.


Q: Who should host the shower?
A: Traditionally, the maid of honor plans the shower party. But today, anything goes, and it is perfectly acceptable for both family and friends to work together to organize, host, and share the cost of the wedding shower.


It doesn't matter who hosts the party as long as it is planned well in advance and generally in consultation with the bride. If the shower is designed to be in someone's home, it's always a good idea to choose the person with the most significant home or garden.


Q: Who to invite?
A: Apart from your family members, the host should invite people you know well, friends, relatives, or work colleagues. You don't want to ask too many people, as a large group tends to split into small separate groups.


You want everyone to interact and be a manageable size for everybody to play the hilarious shower games and not feel left out. A comfortable shower should involve about 10-20 people.



Check out if there's someone who has already planned a shower for her. It won't be a good idea to throw two batteries with the same faces of attendees. Sure, you can throw another one, but it should be different. A home-based shower is a bit separate from an office shower. So consider this.


Q: Wedding date Time

A: Decide on the date. Traditionally, wedding showers are held a month before the wedding day. However, these days, many people are planning a wedding shower more minor than a month before the wedding date. Either of the two will do, but make sure that the bride and groom are free on that date and the guests they would like to be at the party.


Q: What's your Theme?
A: As with the actual wedding, it is wise to choose a wedding theme before sending out the invitations. The article can then be used throughout the shower and incorporated into the invitations, wedding decorations, favors, and refreshments.


There are dozens of topics for a shower party theme. The most popular is the 'kitchen' theme as there are endless pieces of equipment and accessories you can buy for the kitchen. The host knows the bride well and will surely fit a theme around what the bride and groom need or their lifestyle.


For example, if the happy couple is both into health and fitness, a fitness theme could be an option.


One good idea for a couple's shower is a wine-tasting theme. This is ideal for a Saturday night party, and I am sure the men will enjoy this one and quickly get into the swing of things!


Q: What's your budget?

A: Planning a wedding party these days can be costly. So when you decide to throw a wedding shower to a couple, make sure that you have enough budget to spend. Set a realistic budget first before you shop for anything. It is not good to ask for a contribution from the couple, as the shower will serve as a gift for them. Budget wedding 


Q: How to choose wedding items?

A: Purchase necessary decorations, invitations, and party favors. If you find it cheaper than shopping at a local store, you may consider shopping online. Of course, you have to pick items according to the party's theme.


When you send invitations, it should be three to four weeks before the wedding shower so that guests will have plenty of time to arrange their schedules and prepare gifts.


Q: What's your menu?

A: Decide on the menu. Foods and drinks can vary depending on the day the party is held. If you are on a limited budget, don't worry because preparing a sit-down meal for everyone is not mandatory. You may even plan to have a pot lock party.


You don't necessarily need to buy expensive shower invitations. Another growing trend is that many brides do their wedding research online. The internet has opened up many 'cheaper' avenues, and you can now get some great printable-wedding-shower-invitations. These invitations are customized with your wording and design and are printed directly from your printer.

Q: How about Food, Favors, and Games
A: Food: It depends on the theme and location for which type of food to prepare. For example, if you hold a 'wine tasting theme,' a finger buffet with crackers, nuts, and other nibbles goes down well with wine. If you are holding a garden shower party, consider light finger food - cheeses, crackers, fresh fruit, mini-quiches, blueberry cream puffs, crab dip, and a bacon, egg, and cheese casserole and salads.

Q: What's your Favor?

A: Some people choose not to give shower favors. It depends on where you live and whether it is a tradition in your area. If you do, you don't have to go overboard with wedding favors if you want to keep the expense down.


Give something small and valuable, like a scented candle. Most people like scented candles, and they are practical. A potpourri satchel is another welcome and helpful idea.


Have you considered bride and groom favor clutch bags to fill with almonds. A net is placed at the back of the clutch purse filled with candy or almonds, or even chocolates. Attached at the front of the tulle net is either a bride's dress in white color or a groom's tuxedo in black—a brilliantly executed idea.


Such as giving these people gifts is a way to show your appreciation for their involvement and support and offer a memento of the wedding and your relationship. It is traditional to give attendants such as bridesmaids and groomsmen gifts that they can use during the marriage, such as jewelry, cuff links, hair accessories, or handkerchiefs. 


Bridal showers are meant to be fun. They do need a lot of planning and organization in advance, but they are worth it. The bride and groom receive practical gifts for their home, and shower parties are a great excuse to get together with friends and family to have one whale of a time!
