Lovely Ideas for Bridal Shower Themes

Getting invited to a bridal shower party can be very exciting but what’s more exciting is when you are given the privilege to help put together a bridal shower party, especially if it’s for a family or friend. Bridal shower parties should be memorable. It will be the last party you’ll have with the bride-to-be before she marries. There are a lot of bridal shower themes that you can use for a bridal shower party that you are about to throw. It doesn’t matter whether your budget for the shower party is big enough to feed a hundred guests or if it’s just enough for a small intimate party. What’s important is that you make the shower a memorable one.

One of the easiest and most inexpensive ways to do a bridal shower theme is use the bride’s favorite color(s). One thing that’s good about using colors as the theme is that it wouldn’t be difficult to decorate the party venue since most décor pieces come in all colors. If for example, the bride to be likes purple and pink then why not makes tissue paper poufs in those colors and hang it them as ceiling decorations. You can also create floral centerpieces using flowers that are in the specific colors that the bride likes.

Tissue paper pompoms are perfect as decor for color-themed bridal showers because the materials needed are available in every color

Another way to choose a theme for a bridal shower is to consider the bride’s favorite places or the places that she dreams of visiting one day. A favorite choice for bridal shower themes based on places is Paris. For this, you can have decoration pieces that represent that particular place. So when you choose Paris, you can have Eiffel Tower decorations and fancy fonts on the invitation and romantic flower arrangements because that is what Paris is known for: romance and elegance.

Activity themed bridal showers are also fun and unique. If the bride loves to travel, you can make invitations that look like airplane tickets or post cards. You can also make a collage of the bride’s (and groom’s) pictures of when they were travelling. Another activity that you can theme the bridal shower around would be a picnic. This is pretty simple and fun to do and you even have the choice to take the party outdoors. Sports-themed bridal showers are also perfect for athletic bride-to-be’s.

If you are on a tight budget but would still love to throw the bride a shower, there’s no need to fuss. Even a little budget would go a long way as long as you’re creative enough. You can do a bridal shower that’s pretty much just like a wine & cheese tasting session. All you need are some inexpensive wine, various kinds of cheese and a creative imagination for the décor.  You can also do other activities that do not require lots of money to do like a movie marathon bridal shower.
