To help you out, we have put together a list of important thinking points that will be certain to assist in creating a bridal shower that will inspire joy, laughter and fun. Here’s to many smiles and many hugs…
The All-Important Theme
When it comes to choosing what theme to use for the bridal shower, know that it should relate to the bride. But this doesn’t mean that it has to be expensive. The theme can be special, while simple at the same time. Use aspects of the bride’s likes and dislikes to create the theme. For example, include her favorite colors for the visual aspect, choose foods and drinks that she enjoys for the edible side of things, and use her favorite hangout for the place to have the party.
Remember that Help is Your Best Friend
One thing that a party planner should never forget: Don’t do it on your own. You will create a better festive occasion if you enlist the help of your friends and family. It will help you cut down on costs as well as headaches. Delegating different jobs will make the party more fun for attendees as well. Things you can involve others with include the invitations, menu, games, prizes and ambiance.
Don’t Forget the Invitations
Not only is it super important to get the invitations out in a timely manner, as to make sure everyone has ample opportunity to make plans on coming to the party, but it is also a way to double check that you have invited everyone. Also, by doing the guest list early, you might realize that the bridal shower has a theme within it already that might have been otherwise overlooked.
Keep the Games Related

When it comes to involving games for people to play, try to have the festivities related to the bride. For example, create games that draw upon special aspects of the bride’s personality. Or use the connection that the guests have with the bride to make up a fun personalized game that all will enjoy.
