I am always on the lookout for fun bridal shower ideas! If you are a bridesmaid or a Maid/Matron of Honor and have been put in charge of coordinating a bridal shower this can be very daunting task. You don’t want to disappoint the bride and sometimes it is hard to think of a fun, creative bridal shower idea. First, make sure you consider the bride and what she loves to do before deciding on an idea. Most brides are all about relaxing and forgetting about all the stresses of the wedding. You know her best so the more personal touches
…the better. If she loves the color pink throw her an all pink shower or if she loves books throw her a “stock the library” shower.
Take a look at some of my new favorite bridal shower ideas and see if they fit your bride!
If your bride-to-be is an artsy gal, then an art party is perfect for her. One of the things I love about many of the art party classes is that they are BYOB. You can bring your favorite bottle of wine and learn to paint a canvas painting or a piece of pottery. The bride will love it and even if you aren’t a painter you can have fun with it! (In Atlanta check out Sips n Strokes)
How fun is this? Especially if she loves cakes or sweets this is such a great idea. You can purchase small cakes for everyone in attendance and have different color icing and icing tools to decorate their individual cakes. There are bakeries who will conduct the class for you or if you want a more intimate setting you can do it in your home. (Below is a picture of Vanessa Minnillo’s bridal shower)
Eco Friendly Shower:
If your bride is “green” she will adore this Eco Friendly shower. An outdoor shower is the perfect backdrop using eco friendly centerpieces and linens. I like the idea of using herbs like rosemary and thyme in the center of the tables. An idea I saw in Inside Weddings Magazine was to set up a Potting Station with everything for guests to pot their own plants to take home. Love!
This is perfect for a bride who loves to cook or possibly has no idea how to cook. Either way it will be a great time for everyone to learn a new dish!
What bride doesn’t love to be pampered? For this shower idea you can either go to a spa or you can treat your bride to a day of pedicures at your home. If you hire a few people to do pedicures and serve a light lunch (don’t forget the soothing music) your bride won’t want to leave!
