Bridal showers are definitely not what they used to be. Gone are the days of stuffy, boring, no-boys-allowed soirees that often focused too much on tradition and not enough on having fun and sharing in the excitement. Today, showers are much more relaxed and can incorporate whimsical themes to create an event that will be impossible for any bride and her loved ones to forget!
Why not opt for a trendy Parisian-themed affair complete with mini Eiffel Towers, french baguettes and delicious macarons? Entertain guests with a French-inspired photo booth and supply berets, moustaches and French flags to really liven up the party. For a movie-loving bride, throw a Breakfast at Tiffany’s-inspired shower with pearls, sunglasses and all things Tiffany blue. Get your hands on a copy of the iconic film and have it playing in the background to set the mood and give your party that 1960’s vibe.
Planning a themed bridal shower is not only fun but can actually help keep the planning process organized. A specific theme means specific and limited food, decoration and favour options. For a Great Gatsby-themed shower, colours like gold, black and white are the best bet. Champagne, decadent desserts and elegant hors d’oeuvres will stay in line with your theme and help keep your shopping list short and sweet.
Here are five fabulous bridal shower themes to get you and your bridal party inspired.
