Honoring the bride before her big day is a special occasion to come together and celebrate. Far too often we talk about the importance of the wedding, while losing focus on the ride along the way.
Soon-to-be newlyweds are at a unique pinnacle in their lives and taking a moment to honor how far they’ve come and their relationships with family and friends is often celebrated with a shower.
Typically given by the bride’s mother, sisters or maid of honor, a bridal shower is a big day for a bride so making it an event to remember is key.
Here are some trendy, timeless bridal shower themes to consider.
1. Floral Romance
Flowers have always been the ultimate display of beauty and feminine romance. They’ve also been trending for some time now. Floral prints, rose pink hues and entire backdrop walls dedicated to flowers at events have been all the rage. To host a floral-themed, romantic bridal shower, consider floral center pieces, flower petals used as confetti on the center of tables and a special sash for the bride-to-be with floral decorations attached.
2. Vintage Tea Party
It doesn’t get more graceful and elegant than a tea party. The same playtime fun had as little girls can be realized at a memorable event to commemorate your friend’s new life adventure. Think about all of the details you valued during those playtime tea parties and incorporate them into the bridal shower event. Fine china, mini desserts – maybe even gloves and fancy top hats for guests.
3. Winter Wonderland
Getting married in the winter season has its own unique allure. From blankets of white snow as a backdrop, to the romance that the season brings. A winter wonderland bridal shower can incorporate all of those elements for a truly memorable day. Think snowflakes, silver decor and all white, everything.
4. Rustic Charm
There is something distinctively charming about rustic, country style. It’s the reason we’ve seen so many barn accents and worn wood décor lately. Throwing a rustic style bridal shower may be the perfect complement to a chic wedding. If you’re planning the event, use mason jars for center pieces, have personalized wooden signs made, decorate with vintage items and burlap and don’t forget the fresh cut flowers like baby’s breath or sunflowers.
5. Color Coordinated
Some brides aren’t concerned with a theme at their shower. In those cases, it’s the perfect opportunity to consider another trendy option with bridal showers today – which is color palettes. You could use the bride’s favorite color, the colors from the wedding, or something that works well together as part of the decorations and decor for the shower. Hue of pinks, peaches and bronzes are especially hot right now. Have desserts frosted in these colors, table cloths and napkins to match to bring the day together.
