Planning a great bridal shower is never an easy task. Not only do you have to come up with a very warm and comfortable atmosphere, but you have to make it fun. Now, the first thing that you have to do is find out what kind of theme you are using. There are tons of different themes for bridal showers out there. Before you can send out bridal shower invitations, you have to know what kind of bridal shower it is. In fact, there are two main types of bridal showers that are thrown. The first type is your normal bridal shower. This is where you give the bride things that she can use in her new home. The other kind of bridal shower is, of course, the kind of bridal shower that is only thrown by the bride's girlfriends. That is because it is more of an “adult” bridal shower. This is the kind of bridal shower where the bride gets things that she can use on her honeymoon.
After picking out the type of bridal shower you are going to throw, it's now time to send out the invitations. Your invitations have to match the feel and theme of the bridal shower itself. On the invitations you have to be sure to let everyone know where to go and what time the bridal shower is going to be. This is, by far, the easiest part of the bridal shower.
The next best thing that you can do at a bridal shower is have bridal shower games. Most of the time the games that you choose have to reflect the interests of the guests. For example, charades is a good bridal shower game to play. Other party board games work as well. Just be sure to choose bridal shower games that are both fun to play and easy to set up.
No bridal shower is complete without music. The music needs to help set the mood of the bridal shower and should be playing in the background the whole time. Just remember that the music needs to be heard, but not so loud that it's overpowering everyone. The music is just about as important as the food, which is one of the most important things!
Bridal showers are fun, but no one is having fun if they are hungry. Now, you can have your own food and make it yourself, or you can go to a luncheon at a restaurant. No matter where you go, be sure that you get a bridal shower cake. Nothing tops of a meal better than a nice cake. Once again, the cake needs to fit in with the theme of your bridal shower.
Overall, just have fun! If you are not having fun planning the bridal shower, then it is going to show in the supplies that you picked out. Also remember that you do not have to plan the whole thing yourself. Be sure to get some people to help you out. This will cut costs down, and it will also help to make the whole process of planning the party just that much easier.
