Whether you’ve planned a long engagement or your nuptials are going to be right around the corner, some pre “I Do” celebrations are in order! The long standing tradition of a bridal shower has taken some exciting twists and turns over the years. From food to fun to fabulous, partaking in some quality time with your nearest and dearest is always a good idea!
A little wine, a little cheese, a match made in heaven if you ask us! A wine and cheese tasting is the perfect way to gather all the special women in your life while you learn to sip and taste the day away! A local wine bar is a great option to organize a private class for your group. Guests can bring a favorite bottle of wine to share with you for future events as you transform from a Ms. to a Mrs.!
While the traditional bridal shower is typically a daytime brunch affair, shake things up a bit and go for an evening event instead. Rather than a full sit down meal, consider a night with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. It adds a glamorous touch to the special occasion, and your guests will love the change of scenery and excuse to dress up!
Sweat It Out!
The evolution of the workout seems to be here to stay! Get everyone’s endorphins pumping with a host of activities from yoga, to zumba, to pilates. If your mom, aunt, mother-in-law to be, sister, etc are thinking about hosting, an instructor can easily lead a class right in their house. Think of it as a chance to bond over some good tunes and moves before everyone showers you with presents and advice afterwards!
The Art of Love
Whether you’re a regular Picasso or still trying to master stick figures, channeling your artistic side with your closest family and friends can add a creative element to your shower! With painting classes becoming so popular at many cafes and restaurants, you’ve got yourself a traditional shower blended with something new and different! For an extra personal touch, pick a painting on the romantic side!
