It goes without saying that the wedding is going to be the big bang, the “piece de resistance”, the fireworks at the end of the engagement and planning process. But just as important is all the fun along with the way.
Flouncing through department stores while you register for your gifts, having a big blowout with all your girlfriends for your bachelorette, and of course a day of love and womanhood celebrating and showering, who else… You!
The bridal shower is traditionally a day where all the women in your life gather round, share advice, and maybe some recipes, as they send you into the next chapter of you life, marriage. These days there are so many creative ideas to weave into the traditional shower theme. Happy planning!
- Candy Land! Turn your special day into a confection dream that even Willy Wonka would be jealous of. Pick a color scheme, then head to a local candy store and stock up on some bulk candy in your colors. Jelly beans, lollipops, and gumballs are usually an easy find in most colors. Fill up a variety of martini glasses and mason jars for a classy look!
- Get in touch with your artistic side. Have a painting or a cooking party! Activity showers are on the rise, and for good reason. There’s a little bit of everything, food, drinks, and some entertainment with your best gal pals and special women in your life.
- Silk, Satin, and everything Nice! What better way to get ready for life as a wife, than with a lingerie party. With everyone bringing a piece of lingerie with them, they’ll be plenty to choose from for the wedding night, and most importantly the honeymoon!
