A you can imagine, writing a Bridesmaid blog means we need to keep up with all of the bridal shower themes that guarantee a good time. Below are our top 10 favorite showers for 2017.
Pink and Sparkly
A very popular bridal shower theme is to go with a timeless classic: pretty in pink and all things that sparkle! Some of our favorite ideas for this type of shower include sparkly table runners, balloons filled with confetti, and serving pink bubbly.
Cooking or Baking Theme
For the food loving bride give her exactly what she wants, a taste of savory appetizers with a side of sugary sweets. There are many clever ways to incorporate kitchen accessories and gadgets into this type of shower. For a fun game, be sure to have guests share their favorite recipes with the couple.
Brunch and Bubbly
The latest craze for bridal showers is simple. Get the girls together for brunch and pop that bubbly. Some of our favorite ideas for a brunch and bubbly shower include, a make your own mimosa bar, yogurt topping bars, and ice cubes with flowers!
Garden and Tea Party Showers
Technically you could have a garden tea party, a garden party, or a tea party shower. The most popular tea party ideas usually center around an Alice in Wonderland theme. Garden party showers usually involve tea in some way, but can also include cocktails or bubbly. The combinations for decor with these types of showers are endless, and it’s more than likely flower centerpieces will be your focal point.
Mint to Be
A charming shower idea is to use this play on words saying the couple is “meant to be” together. This theme can be simple, rustic, or elegant as long as you’re incorporating a mint shade of color into your decor. Popular favors include lavender-mint sugar scrub or packs of tic tac that, of course, say mint-to-be.
Backyard, Outdoor, or Picnic Showers
Some brides love the great outdoors, so why not take advantage and host a shower outside. The decor and overall theme will vary depending on the time of year and season. One shower idea we personally love is turning the day into a backyard picnic. Throw down some blankets, soak up the sun, and play lawn party games. Another great option is to host your shower at your local winery or vineyard, like this shower held at Working Dog Winery in NJ.
Vibrant, Eclectic, or Hippie Showers
You might be scratching your head at this one saying, what do you mean? These are the types of showers that require thinking outside the box. They often involve vibrant colors, flipping the latest trend on their side, and a really free-spirited type of bride. One example is this boho beach themed shower that featured a live reggae band, a hula hooping contest, and a woman twirling fire. Now that’s something you don’t see every day.
1920’s Art Decor or Great Gatsby
Oh the roaring 1920’s! Whether it be Great Gatsby, an art deco influence, or a speak easy prohibition party, this theme always gives guests an excuse to get dolled up. Break out your feathers, pearls, and beaded dresses for a party you won’t soon forget. Just remember, the more opulent the better.
Glamour and Old Hollywood
Looking for glitz and glamour that doesn’t center around the 1920’s? Try an Old Hollywood theme. These types of showers can span a number of decades and even include the fashions of today. Ideas for this shower include recreating the Hollywood walk of fame, rolling out the red carpet, and giving guests prizes for guessing celebrity couples. Get ready for your closeup, because this theme is lights, camera, action!
Breakfast at Tiffany’s
