Hosting A Great Bridal Shower

When a lot of women think of attending a bridal shower, they sort of cringe. They imagine eating wilted salads and drinking lemonade, squawking about their marriages and husbands. Everyone watches the bride open box after box filled with pots, spatulas, and slightly risqué lingerie. Once the pastel colored bows have filled up a paper plate large enough to make a hat for her, there is a trivia game and everyone goes home. It is old-fashioned and usually not fun for anyone under 80. If you are are the host of an upcoming shower, there are plenty of ways to make it modern and fun. You can focus on three major areas of the shower to create something that has some traditional elements, but also comes over as modern and chic. Create a menu that features foods that are more popular today. If you want to hold a luncheon for the ladies, serve loose leaf tea or organic black tea. You are serving a popular beverage from yesteryear with a modern twist and add finger foods with a modern twist, or choose the bride’s casual favorites and serve bar food or veggies. You can really have fun with the menu and make it a modern occasion.

Next, plan activities that are not so old-fashioned only one or two guests know what to do. You can still gather around the bride to open gifts, but create a basket of bows instead of making a hat. Encourage guests to bring a particular type of gift. Many brides today are either living on their own in their own homes or sharing a space with their fiancé. They will already have the traditional bridal gifts, but may need some help with a particular product or event. For instance, brides can create a honeymoon registry that allows guests to contribute financially to the cost of their honeymoon. This way, the trip of their life can be had shortly after their marriage.

Finally, add a modern twist to the guest list by inviting men. Many of today’s showers are co-ed. It may be similar to the engagement party, or you may have something more casual. No one is excluded and there is fun for everyone. This is a great addition if the upcoming wedding is very formal. The shower is a casual chance to celebrate. You could still play a few games or have an outdoor barbecue. Determine how many people are invited and plan from there. There are plenty of options for modern, fun bridal showers.
