Setting Up Bridal Shower Decorations

Designing Cohesive and Cost-Effective Bridal Shower Decorations

Bridal Shower Decorations

Hosting a bridal shower can sometimes become as stressful and difficult as planning a wedding. There’s guest lists, catering, planning, and – of course – decorating. Bridal shower decorations don’t get nearly as much spotlight as wedding decorations, but the aesthetics and ambiance of a bridal shower can’t be overlooked or ignored. The trick to beautiful bridal shower decorations is simplicity and consistency. It doesn’t matter how much you spend or how much you saturate your venue in tissue paper – your bridal shower decorations should be cohesive and minimal. Paper bridal shower decorations are my personal favorite; they’re easy and they always look great. Think about paper bunting, confetti, and classy table numbers to tie your bridal shower decorations together. There’s no need to go crazy buying any and all bridal shower decorations you can. Find a theme and stick to it, but don’t go overboard. For bridal shower decorations, it’s all about beauty in simplicity.   The bride will love her bridal shower as long as she’s surrounded by the women who love her, but that doesn’t mean you should skip the bridal shower decorations! Photos from this event will be stacked next to the ones from the wedding itself – let your bridal shower decorations speak to the quality of the event!

Bridal Shower Bingo: A Rowdy Afternoon of Frolic

Fun Times with Bridal Shower Bingo

Bridal Shower Bingo

Bridal shower games are probably my favorite part of the wedding marathon that brides subject themselves to in the months leading up to their big day. They’re inexpensive, fun, and provide a great bonding opportunity for the women closest to you. You don’t really know your Great Aunt Sally until you’ve seen her viciously plotting against your Maid of Honor in a lively round of bridal shower bingo. Bridal shower bingo really brings out the competitive side in many women you wouldn’t expect it from – even a poised afternoon tea can get a little rowdy with the addition of a few cutesy prizes. The competition inspired by bridal shower bingo isn’t negative, however: quite the contrary. Bridal shower bingo is fun, and it breathes life into an ordinary celebratory bridal get-together. The multiple winners and excitable participants keep any hard feelings at bay (unlike strategic and cutthroat gaming scenarios like family “Risk” or “Monopoly” night). Finding great bridal shower bingo games isn’t too difficult, but you might want to skip trying to make them yourself. A few hours struggling with clip art and Microsoft word functions will leave you frustrated (and sporting an inferior product). Bridal shower bingo is just what your shower needs for an unforgettable afternoon.

Flaunting your new marital status is one of the little things that makes a honeymoon so fun. You'll only be newlyweds once, so why not relish in it?

From the beach to first class - there are a number of fun bits of just married honeymoon gear to keep you at the center of attention.

They'll likely always appreciate a set of luggage tags or passport sleeves, but some more common or personal staples should probably be left to the couple themselves.

Practice Style and Substance with Bridal Shower Thank You Notes

Bridal Shower Thank You Notes: Start Early!

Bridal Shower Thank You Notes

You’re going to get really sick of writing thank-you cards for gifts during the weeks of wedding activities leading up to the big show, but you still have to do them. Bridal shower thank you notes will likely be the first set of hand-penned words you commit to cute little cards, but they certainly won’t be the last. Let your bridal shower thank you notes act as a practice for the notes to come. Try to get started on your bridal shower thank you notes as soon as you can – right after the shower, while the events of the day are still fresh in your brain. Have your hostess pen a list of givers and gifts during the shower, and always keep the card with the gift. Detailed records will make your bridal shower thank you notes so much easier.   When selecting the right bridal shower thank you notes for your bash, take your own personal style (and the style of the party) into consideration. You don’t need fancy bridal shower thank you notes for a backyard barbeque, and ripped sheets of legal pad paper won’t cut it for a swanky catered affair. Just like with your wedding paper goods, your bridal shower thank you notes are all about context and consistency.
