5 Ideas to Make Your Bridal Shower Perfect

Your sister, niece, friend, or another special woman in your life is getting married and you want to throw her a shower, but are unsure what should be done. I would like to talk with you about a few things that will really help you in your planning. Throwing a bridal shower is a great way to express your love and friendship to the woman who is getting married; not to mention that this is a stressful time in a bride's life, with all the planning and details, and she really needs a day to stop, relax, and have fun celebrating her upcoming wedding.

The first thing that you need to do is to talk with your bride to be about her wedding plans; what are her colors, what's her theme, what foods does she love, and other like questions that will help you get a better idea of what will make this shower really special to the bride. It is SO important to put a lot of time and attention into your planning of the shower. No bride wants to have a shower that doesn't represent who she is; generic showers are a big no no. Talk with her Mother; get childhood pictures and stories of her as a little girl. Really get to know your soon to be bride and give her the shower she deserves.

Be organized. There will be a ton of details that you will have to manage. Everything from the venue to the decorations, the food to the games, the invites to the bridal shower favors. Every detail is important and needs to be taken care of. Get yourself a planner, there are even great shower planners that you can buy from wedding shops and craft stores. Make sure you pick a date and time, stick with it, and send out the invites with plenty of time for people to RSVP to the shower.

Plan plenty of games and things to do during the shower; this is especially helpful if the guests don't all know each other. You can find a lot of great game ideas online; these icebreakers will get all your guests in a good mood. Have on hand plenty of small gifts for the winners.

Don't forget the wedding shower favors. A good hostess always has something for her guests to go home with. It doesn't have to be anything major or expensive, it is just a token of thanks for coming; this is especially important for occasions when gifts are expected, such as this one. It is a great idea to have the favor symbolize the bride. Is she a coffee fanatic? Give out coffee mugs in the wedding colors. Maybe she loves her cat, you could give your guests a really sweet kitty key chain. Whatever the favor is, it is a nice touch that is it something that relates to the bride and her life; it really shows that you took the time and made an effort to plan this shower in honor of the her. Always remember to have fun with your planning, because if you are not having fun with planning it you will allow yourself to make choices out of frustration and just wanting to be done with it. Give yourself plenty of time to plan and organize so that you won't get burnt out. Good Luck!
