The purpose of a bridal shower is to shower the bride-to-be with gifts of friendship, love and support. This is the time for the bride-to-be to celebrate being a bride around friends and family. This is an important time for friends and family to help the bride-to-be enjoy her new life.
The bridal shower is usually given by the maid of honor, the bridal party as a group or a close friend.
Make the shower memorable, and personalize it. Think about the bride. Who she is. What does she likes. Select elements of the bride's personality and favorite things. What does the bride really want?
- Does she like sit-down parties or would she rather mingle with her guests?
- What are her hobbies and interests?
- Does she like to dress-up or is she more of a casual person?
- Is she having a theme wedding?
