    Bride to Be! Molly of Luminaire Images When we say fun - we mean FUN! Bridal showers are a perfect example of how you can either feel more stressed or more like you are enjoying being engaged. SO if you are thinking about trying to have an out of the box bridal shower, take a look at these three tips!  

How to Make it FUN

Plus, it creates opportunities for more game ideas that are bound to get some laughs. There's just something about having both genders in attendance that makes people more competitive come game time!  Also, can you imagine the silliness that will ensue when you dad is the one being wrapped in his toilet paper wedding dress?

Think of YOU

Loving this Harry Potter-themed bridal shower Greg Obierek Photography If you want to have a fun bridal shower, then make the bridal shower about things you like. If you want a super formal bridal shower, that's great. But if you want people laughing and a little activity running around, infusing your unique interests into the PARTY can make it AMAZING. For example, if you and your fiance are avid football fans, take your bridal shower outdoors and actually play football! Serve burgers and hot dogs, and just enjoy the sweaty fun. Or if you don't have an active group attending, just go all out with a fun theme that inspires everything from decor to games to food. You're a Harry Potter nerd? Why not serve butter beer and have a magical time?

Wedding showers are fun events. If you are the one throwing the shower, then you have a lot of work to do. The first basic task is to decide when the wedding shower should be held. It should be on a date that is convenient to the guest of honor. If it is intended to be a surprise party, then you need to ensure that the guest of honor can make it to the party.
