Being a maid of honour isn’t half as easy as being a best man. You’ve got a lot on your to-do list, and the items aren’t going to check themselves off. Is a bridal shower on your list? Let us help you sort it out.
Here’s everything you need to do to throw a bridal shower to remember.
Finalize the Theme
Party planning for your bride-to-be’s bridal shower can’t begin unless you’ve finalized a theme. You could go for the run-of-the-mill ones, such as:
- Outdoor BBQ
- Slumber party
- Semi-formal garden soiree
- Wine tasting
Or you could try something a bit more unique, such as:
- French tea party
- Summer garden
- Something blue
Decide the ‘Where’
You need the perfect blank canvas to deck out the theme. Nailing down the venue is easier said than done. As a maid of honour and the person completely in charge of the bridal shower, you’re bound to overthink the venue. Our advice: don’t.
A lot of restaurants offer banquet rooms in the evening so that you can just hire one of them out for the night. If all else fails and nothing feels right, you could always go for sentimental value by throwing it in, say, a backyard where you used to play.
Spread the Word
You didn’t think invitations were only supposed to be for the wedding, did you? A bridal shower is an event where you’ll be hosting guests. So, it only stands to reason that you prepare proper invites.
Here’s what to include in your invites:
- The date and time.
- Virtual, hybrid, or venue directions.
- The theme
- RSVP details
Not the Last, Nor the Least: Food
Food and beverages are pivotal to a successful bridal shower. You don’t want to serve anything that they would have to sit down for or wash their hands after the fact. You also don’t want to serve anything the bride-to-be finds unsavoury. Sounds tricky yet?
An easy way out would be to host the shower at a local restaurant where she likes to eat. That would take care of the second half of your problem. Sort out the first half by serving finger foods that are easy to make and eat. Avoid heavy appetizers and make sure that the lighter ones are doled out like your endlessly flowing alcohol.
