If you’re planning a bridal shower, first thing’s first: pick a theme. A theme helps to anchor all the other details, like a color palette, food, desserts and decorations. Traditionally the host of the bridal shower would be the maid of honor or a parent, keeping most of the plans hush-hush, but now it’s much more common for brides to be a part of the planning and have a say in how they’d like the celebration to go down. It’s also becoming much more common for showers to be co-ed (AKA Jack and Jill showers).
The timeline of a bridal shower typically falls anytime within two months before the wedding—if the happy couple wants to celebrate their engagement sooner, that’s what an engagement party is for! See all the most popular bridal shower themes below to get your planning started.
