How To Plan A Bridal Shower
Planning the perfect bridal shower for your best friend can be a daunting task. There are so many things to consider, and how do you know where to start? The first step should always be asking her what she wants! Once you have that information, it is time to break the project down into smaller tasks. These 11 steps will help guide you through how to plan the perfect bridal shower in no time at all!
Step One: Brainstorm Ideas for the Theme
Start by brainstorming ideas with your best friend about what they want. If she says she wants pink and purple piñatas, then go ahead and plan a bridal shower full of that! Whatever her answer is, it should be easy to match colors or items within the theme. This step may not come naturally at first but keep at it until you can narrow down how many options there are before deciding on one.
Step two is to determine how many guests are coming.
This will help you decide on how much food and drink you’ll need, as well as how long the party should last (if it is a day or night event).
Step three: choose what type of games you want for your shower.
There are so many types of games that can be played at a bridal shower! Some suggestions include trivia, pinata filler with prizes inside like sunglasses or flip-flops, drawing competitions where everyone has to draw an animal-related picture without talking to each other while blindfolded…the list goes on. You can also play one big game together if there isn’t enough time – but don’t make it too competitive because this is supposed to be a fun time.
Step four: set some ground rules for how the games should work.
You should also decide how prizes will be awarded and who is in charge of announcing winners (usually, if you are doing everything yourself, you’ll want to choose someone else).
Step five: with your list of guests
confirmed and all information about the party finalized it’s now time to start shopping! This may seem like an easy step but really think through what type of gifts each guest might enjoy getting from their hostess plus what they would appreciate as a prize.
Step six: plan how you will decorate the party.
This is also a very fun step because it can really turn your boring, old living room into something new and exciting for everyone. Decorate with any of these items to make it feel like home again!
– streamers in bright colors or patterns
– tablecloths decorated with polka dots, lace trimming, or even little bows at the corners! These are so easy to find – just go shopping at Target or Walmart! You could even cut up some fabric from an old dress that fits the theme and use those as decoration. The possibilities are endless! Plus, remember how much fun it is to go shopping for decorations
Step seven: now that everything else has been taken care
it’s time to think about food and drink! Decide how much to buy based on how many guests are coming. The easiest way would be to check out recipes online and see how many ingredients each recipe needs. Try deciding on a related theme like Mexican, Italian, Asian – whatever sounds most interesting to you.
Step eight: how much time do you want to spend on cleaning up?
How will the party end? There are many ways to wrap your event up, but oftentimes a bridal shower is just one long day with nothing set in stone. how can you learn more about how to plan the perfect wedding shower what other tips could we share from our experience of planning over twenty so far!
How to plan a bridal shower on a budget
You’re probably reading this article because you want to throw your friend a bridal shower but are on a budget. It’s understandable. Throwing parties has the potential of getting expensive very quickly,
and that can be hard if it is not within our means at all times. You’ll first need to figure out what kind of party she likes best so we don’t spend money unnecessarily or purchase something they would never use in their lifetime! For example, if your buddy prefers book clubs over wine tastings,
then those two types will naturally have different styles when planning an event for guests; just think about her hobbies and interests before deciding how you wish these events happen as well as where you’d like them hosted- maybe there’s already someplace close by that’s perfect!
How to plan a bridal shower during the pandemic
If you’re planning a bridal shower during the pandemic, be sure to take precautions. Make your guests wear masks and gloves for as long as they are in attendance; make them wash their hands before leaving or going into other areas of the home, and keep any food that is served iced on ice until it has been eaten by every guest present at the party.
How do you start planning a bridal shower?
Planning a bridal shower can be stressful and time-consuming. What should you do first?
A few things to consider are the number of guests when it occurs (will there be any conflicts with other events?), where you want to have your event held (your home or someone else’s), how big an affair would people expect based on their relationship level in relation to the bride? What is being requested by close friends as gifts for her registry list, etc., before making plans which may include whether this party might also work well as a bachelorette party if so desired?
Can I plan my own bridal shower?
Is the person who is hosting your bridal shower willing to let you have some say in where it will be? The venue for a wedding reception and/or ceremony dictates many of the details, but there are still plenty of decisions that can belong to you. You should start by deciding on how much money or time (depending on your budget) you want to spend.
Is my spouse-to-be happy with this decision?
Are they going along with what I think about location, too, or am I being forced into something against my wishes because they made their mind up already before asking me opinion at all! What’s important here is understanding which aspect(s) matters most when planning such an event: if finances matter more than personal desires, then perhaps this conversation goes differently than if you were to receive input on how the event should be.
How do I plan a bridal shower with limited resources?
I don’t know how much money or time (depending on your budget) you want to spend, but this may help: figure out how many guests are coming and how long you have beforehand; decide what type of party it can be based on her interests and hobbies – book clubs over wine tasting for example; consider where in your house might work best by thinking about how big an affair people expect based on their relationship level in relation to the bride; ask close friends who she is registered at which items they would like as gifts, so no one buys something that is not needed!
