10 Wedding Shower Ideas That will make you say “I do”
Who says a wedding has to be a one day event, when you can have a bridal shower fit for a queen. Today’s wedding showers are bringing us more detailed decor settings, with lots of personalized touches for those Insta-worthy images.
We love a good wedding shower moment, so naturally, here are our current Top 10 favorite ways brides and wedding parties are celebrating today:
1. Bride to-be treats
Custom made bridal sweets, accessories, and gifts have become the latest rage for a memorable wedding shower.
2. Tea-time settings
For a more intimate gathering, create a long-lasting experience with a bridal picnic or a tea-time layout. Not only are there multiple ways to customize the theme to fit your needs, but it’s a perfect Insta-worthy photo opportunity.
3. Bridal backgrounds
Wedding backdrops and step-and-repeat walls have become the latest rage for beautifully curated images, which sets the tone for the big day, and allows the party to have interactive art to enjoy.
There’s nothing like a good brunch to get everyone mingling with one another, not to mention an added decor element that is sure to bring everyone together.
5. Favorite things
Invite your wedding shower guests to bring their “favorite things”. Items such as kitchenware, household favorites, or bedroom ideas, (wink wink) to gift the bride!
6. Collect date night ideas
Pass a shower journal around to your guests & have them write out one of their favorite date night ideas. Revisit after the wedding and make it a fun list to check off.
7. Story Telling
With a room filled with your closest friends and family, there is bound to be a story or two. In this activity, get your guests involved by writing down one of their favorite memories they have with the bride. Place those memories in a bowl, and have the bride read each aloud. Go a step further, and have the guests guess who the memory belongs to.
8. Bridal Signature Cocktail
Offer a fun signature cocktail throughout the shower to fit the theme or location of the wedding. Need we say more?
9. Custom Favors
From candles to koozies and everything in between, sentimental gifts with all the special touches, will set this day apart!
10. Bridal Throne
Add to those picturesque moments with a decorative throne for the bride to enjoy as she opens gifts, or lounges for the perfect photo op.
Although wedding showers today can really whisk us away into another world, we’d like to think of it as a way to extend the wedding day just a little longer for each to truly enjoy. For more ideas on wedding trends, make sure you check out our Top 10 Wedding Trends.
