Tired of finger sandwiches and guessing games for a bridal shower? We thought so. After browsing our favorites site, Pinterest, the Occasions Teams came up with a great way to spice up a bridal shower. Instead of relying on “bride” to be a theme, infuse a different vibe into the party by mixing things up. Here are some bridal shower theme suggestions:
The Bride’s Favorite Show
What is more fun than dressing the bride up in decorated scrubs and drinking Tequila shots like Christina Yang in Grey’s Anatomy? Use the bride’s favorite show as a guide to create food, drinks, and games. Don’t be afraid to be creative- the bride-to-be will greatly appreciate her bridesmaids thinking outside of the box.
We believe that is has been scientifically proven that all women love decade parties. Whether it is dressing up as 1920’s flappers or using Aqua Net to perfect that 80’s hair, these parties guarantee the funniest costumes. To take this theme further, pick the decade the bride grew up in and make sure her childhood foods and drinks are there for her to enjoy.
I Wish I Could Travel…
Since weddings and honeymoons often have a tight budget, a bride may not be able to visit Morocco, Paris, or Venice as a weekend getaway with her hubby-to-be. Instead of letting your friend keep dreaming, recreate her dream vacation for her bridal shower. This theme work for a surprise bridal shower. Imagine the bride’s joy as she steps into a Parisian coffee shop with her closest friends.
Outdoor Camping Trip
If a weekend away fits into everyone’s work schedule, plan for a trip in the great outdoors. If your bride is an adventure seeker, she will thrive in the campsite setting. Check in with your bride before to make sure she doesn’t mind mosquito bites or campfire s’mores.
The bride is not up for a night on the town? No problem! Instead of inviting countless guests, keep the party small and simple. Make a reservation to a local spa and indulge in facials, massages, and Jacuzzis. A spa outing with friends is a perfect way to prep for the big day.
Re-Do New Years
Who says that NYE is only once a year? Gather the girls for a glitter and gold party featuring cocktails dresses, endless champagne, and dancing all night long.
