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.
When it comes to bachelorette or hen parties, as they are called on the other side of the pond, there’s a lot to consider. Where to go, what to do, and all of the finer details can feel overwhelming. That’s why we were thrilled when our friends at Black and White Events created this amazing infographic to share with you.
A Great Night Out
As you’ll see, our gal pals in Ireland and Britain enjoy a night out with their bride-to-be too. It seems in quite the same fashion as we do with American bachelorette parties. And why not? It’s the last night of single life for your bride, so you should celebrate in style. The tips on this infographic will help you keep things running smoothly and ensure a fun night for the bride and all the guests, or as they say hens! (isn’t that adorable!?)
When you’re the girl in your friend group that loves wine; you get relied on a lot to plan social gatherings. Happy hours, Saturday nights out, bridal showers and bachelorette parties. A few weekends ago was the first bachelorette party I’ve attended. Typically, the maid of honor is responsible for the planning, but on this one, they reached out for help from me. The bride was a wine loving bachelorette!
We chose the “Vegas of the East Coast” aka Atlantic City as our destination for a weekend of debauchery. I suggest that if you’re going to a destination for your party, make it at least two nights. We chose to do Friday and Saturday night, which gave us more time to really enjoy the area and make sure we had enough time to fit in everything we planned to do.
