How to Organize a Perfect Bridal Shower
Organizing a bridal shower for an engaged loved on can be a daunting task. Figuring out where you should start the planning process, while browsing through hundreds of blog and Pinterest ideas makes the process seem overwhelming. Fortunately, some wedding organizers shared a few go-to tips on how you can make the bridal shower you’re hosting both pretty and unique.
- Personalize Wherever Possible
Details play an important role in personalizing a party. So consider adding some special and unexpected touches where possible to make the event feel more memorable both for the guest-of-honour and guests alike. When adding such touches to your party, think about the places the guests can’t miss. For instance, use some pretty plates, and write down the guests’ names on each plate for an easy DIY that leaves your guests with a sweet and personalized keepsake from the event.
- Serve the Favourites of the Bride-to-Be
Does your guest-of-honour love sweet than savoury? Does she have a favourite beverage or cocktail? Catering a menu based on her likes will make the event extra special both for her and her guests. Also, consider creating a beverage station with dispensers that allow the guests to serve themselves when they’re feeling parched. Extra points if you’re filling them with the bride-to-be’s favourite cocktail.
- Add Some Thoughtful Touches
This is where it’ll really help to dig deep, and think about what the guest-of-honour really loves. Does she like fresh flowers? Then creating a floral bar will all her favourite flowers will definitely please her. Does regularly pin quotes in Pinterest? Perhaps implementing her favourite quote sometime in the day would add a meaningful touch to the event.
- Work on Your Bridal Shower Favours
The bride-to-be shouldn’t be the only one leaving the party feeling special. Give a little something to each guest as they leave to ensure that everyone feels loved in your event. A good favour would be stitching the wedding date of the couple on a pretty napkin, or adding the place where the bride-to-be met that particular guest to personalize your favour on a whole new level.
- Involve the Guests
When inviting guests to attend the bridal shower, ask them to prepare a sweet story to share with the bride-to-be. After that, set an intimate space where guests can gather, and share their sentiments about the bride-to-be. Just ensure that you’ve spruced up your venue well enough to provide a warm and cosy atmosphere both for the guests and guest-of-honour alike.
Planning a bridal shower can be overwhelming at times, but by following the aforementioned tips, you’ll definitely be able to organize a bridal that both the bride-to-be and the guests will love.
