If you’ve been charged with the job of planning your sister or best friend’s hen party, you’re probably anxious about getting it right and keeping an entire bride tribe happy at the same time. Every maid of honor wants to give the blushing bride the hen of her dreams, and one way to pull off this mission is to embrace the art of personalization.
If you’re in the midst of putting together the weekend to end all weekends, here are some tips to make your celebration as personal as possible.
One of the most cost effective bridal showers to have is one at home. A backyard picnic bridal shower is a great option. Especially if you are planning a spring or summer shower, or you are blessed with year round nice weather.

Just like on Roxy’s wedding day, the bride was treated to an intimate outdoor event, this one being held in the backyard of her bridesmaid Jessica.
Jessica handmade the majority of the decor. We love all the personal touches, especially the “bride’s suite” area complete with blankets. Just look at how adorable that “From Miss to Mrs.” burlap sign is.
One of the most popular themes for bridal showers is the Great Gatsby. Call it a love affair with the 20’s or maybe champagne? Either way it’s a truly fun way to celebrate your bride-to-be in style.
When speaking with bride Melanie about her Gatsby themed shower she told us she was extremely surprised!
My bridesmaids and mother-in-law went above and beyond to ensure that my day was great!
So how do you make sure the bride has the right attire for the day without ruining the surprise? Do what these bridesmaids did and have the attire at the venue waiting for the bride!
What’s a bachelorette party without a little fun!? We personally love when the Bride’s personality shines through. One way to do that is by adding some cheeky bachelorette signs.
Our Favorite Signs
The literal yet classy “Pop Fizz Clink” via Little Retreats. For the champagne loving Bride and her girls.
We’re not sure what we love more… the actual “Drunk in Love” sign via onesassybunny or the fact that in her etsy shop she actually named it Boozy Bey Party Banner.
There are lots of cheeky nautical themed signs. This “Last Sail Before the Veil” via WeddingBannerLove is one of our favorites.
