A bridal shower is a gift-giving party held for a bride-to-be in anticipation of her wedding. Planning a bridal shower is no longer left to the maid of honor to organize. Any close friend of the bride can plan a bridal shower for her. Here are a few tips to help you plan a memorable bridal shower:
You should remember you’re working with a budget. A bridal shower is not for everyone that knows the bride. It’s for her friends. Being her close friend or sister, you should have an idea who these friends are and try to get in touch with them early enough.
Prepare your budget according to the idea you have for the shower. It can be a small party with just snacks and drinks as refreshment. Or you could go as far as preparing meals or ordering caterers. It all depends on your pocket. But remember to work within your budget. You don’t want to end up having regrets.
You should select a theme. Now, remember it’s all about the bride-to-be and not about you. Her tastes and preferences should be paramount. Consider colors and styles she likes and appreciates.
If certain invited guests have difficulty keeping the whole party a secret from the bride-to-be, you can encourage them to keep their distance from her, just so they won’t be tempted to spill the secret. If there is anyone who you think will be absolutely unable to keep things quiet, then make the party a surprise for that person too.
The most difficult aspect of planning any surprise party is actually making sure that things work according to plan, and that the celebrant enjoys every part of it. Contact her family and friends, and make sure everyone who needs to be present is there. You don’t want the bride feeling bad that certain people missed out on her bridal shower. Also you have to consult these people in order to get her that gift that she will absolutely love and appreciate.
