It’s called a bridal shower because it’s meant to shower the bride with love, gift, and well wishes. Stick with that sweet, simple idea – plus throw in a few fun bridal shower decorations, games and treats – and the party is sure to be a success. The humble bridal shower has come a long way from its traditional purpose of preparing brides for married life with a dowry of lingerie, linen and house goods. Modern brides want a stylish, personalized and classy bridal shower to bring the girls together and celebrate their upcoming marriage.
Let’s look at top bridal shower ideas for pulling off a memorable bridal shower for your best friend or sister.
- COCKTAILS WITH A SCENIC VIEW
If your bride is planning her wedding for the summer months, a cocktail party with a view is the perfect plan. This idea all comes down to stylish décor, water views, and an outdoor area. A mini cocktail list with cocktails named after the couple’s favorite vacation destinations? Things served in adorable mini milk bottles or old jam jars? Make it an extra special occasion with a cocktail making demonstration professional caterer.
- HIGH TEA rendezvous
It doesn’t get much classier than a high tea gathering. Refined, romantic and suitable for all ages, this can be easily dressed up with a theme and styled to impress. When else are you going to have a chance to throw an adults-only high tea? Or just serve piles and piles of baked goods, add some tea sandwiches, and remember, you don’t have to stick to tea. A cordial, sherry or bubbly will do just fine as well.
- CHEESE & WINE MASTERCLASS
If the bride loves cheese and wine, she will love this. Led by an expert educator, learn to match your wines with cheese, and have fun while you do it. Theme the shower ‘the perfect pair’ and you’re in for a memorable event.
- LEARN TO COOK
Has the bride always wanted to learn how to make her own fresh pizza or pasta? Then she’ll love a surprise cooking class to kick off her classy bridal shower. A fun and interactive experience that her husband will thank you for.
- never-ending BRUNCH
Toast to the bride with a bottomless brunch. The perfect way to catch up with friends and family in a styling setting, with the opportunity to choose from an alternate server or sharing style menu. A bottomless brunch is also a great opportunity to play some games too.
- FANCY PAJAMA PARTY
Have a group of ladies who have known each other since High School? Or just want to roll deep with the nostalgia vibes? Host a shower that’s also a Pajama Party. You can theme games and food around what you used to do at a slumber party, except this time nobody’s underwear gets frozen.
Bridal Showers are fun! Flowers are fun! Tea sandwiches are fun! Parties are fun! Hanging out with people you love and celebrating one of your best friends’ nuptials is fun! Don’t sweat it, pick out your brunching shoes, buy a folder and notebook that has some semblance of organization, put on your big-girl-who-plans-stuff pants and nail the shit out of this bridal shower or you can consider professional Asian Wedding Food specialists whose expertise is food, event planning & decorations.
