Planning a Bridal Shower
Week 2: Invitations, Decorations and Entertainment
Pick a Theme
A theme can serve as inspiration for decorations and games, even the invitations, favors and nametags. It makes planning and preparation simpler to have one central theme.
Plan the Entertainment
As mentioned above, games are a great way to get guests who may not know each other, to interact. They're great ice-breakers and can really set the mood for your bridal shower. About three games for a two-hour shower are just right. Bridal shower games should be the fun part of planning your shower, so don't wait until the last minute to think about them!
Now is the time to finalize the guest list and get those invitations sent out! Invitations to any bridal shower are the guests' first clue to the theme of the bridal shower. Pick invitations that reflect the theme, and don't forget to include any special instructions or requests.
Party Favors & Prizes
...And what about party favors for the winners and booby prizes for the losers? Here are some fun ideas:
- Printed Votive Cups
- Printed Bud Vases
