Throwing a Memorable Bridal Shower

August 12, 2019

Before your friend or family member gets married, send her off with a festive bridal shower. Whether your guest list and budget is big or small, follow a few simple tips to create a thoughtful and memorable event. With enough planning, you’ll be able to enjoy yourself along with the rest of the attendees rather than worrying about the details.

Get Organized

Once you’ve chosen a date, create a simple checklist to ensure each aspect of the party is taken care of. Delegate some of the duties such as addressing the invitations, devising decorations to suit the theme and assembling favors. Consider having a pre-celebration with the bridesmaids where you can decorate the space and prepare some of the food beforehand so you’ll be able to assemble the dishes quickly the day of the shower.

Keep It Moving

If you sense the guests will be bored with the typical bridal shower games, consider hiring an event planner New Jersey to provide entertainment for the event. Amuse attendees with a hypnotist, a painting session or a dance lesson, for instance. You can also hire someone to give guests a mini spa treatment with a selection of products to take home as party favors.

Coordinate Gifts

Rather than having the bride receive presents she won’t need, assign a different room of the house to a handful of guests. On the invitation, let the attendee know that it’s preferable if she offers a gift that’s useful in the kitchen, for instance. If all goes well, the bride will receive a great selection of gadgets and necessities that will be particularly helpful if she and the groom are moving into a new home.
A little organization will go a long way to make the bridal shower a memorable one. A well-planned party will ensure the bride – and the hostess – spend an enjoyable afternoon with friends and family.
