Selecting a Venue
TThe venue is perhaps one of the most important considerations related to bridal showers. You might choose a place that’s signiﬁcant to the bride or simply go with the venue that had the most reasonable price for the date you wanted. Here are several possibilities of places to have the best bridal shower:
- Hotel function rooms
- Restaurant banquet areas
- Country clubs
- Private facilities in event arenas
- Bed-and-breakfast establishments
- Dedicated spaces at botanical gardens or parks
When looking at bridal shower venues, think about how to keep guests as comfortable as possible. Spacious restrooms, climate-controlled areas, and spaces to serve catered food, all make bridal shower events go more smoothly. Also, you may want to expand your search beyond the area so there are more options to work with.
Plan the Day’s Festivities
There are many ways to go about helping the guest of honor and attendees have fun and feel relaxed during the bridal shower party. You might start the day with a few signature cocktails featuring ingredients the bride-to-be especially loves. Then, transition into bridal shower games that involve everyone and keep the guests guessing. Consider some people on the guest list probably haven’t met one another before and may not cross paths again until the wedding day. The following games are good for groups:
- Bridal Bingo
- Scavenger hunt
- Wedding-related quizzes
- Two Truths and a Lie
Because these ideas don’t put people on the spot in embarrassing ways, they’ll help your guests open up to one another. Some attendees may even leave the wedding shower as new friends.
Figure Out the Food
When creating a bridal shower menu, decide if you’ll serve full meals or just snacks. Cupcakes, brownies, and peanut brittle are some good examples of handheld treats. Keep dietary restrictions and allergies in mind and oﬀer some items without meat, gluten, or nuts. You may also want to oﬀer themed food, such as carnival treats or island-related foods.
