Top 3 tips to throw an unforgettable bridal shower party

Date Created: 12/30/2011

Top 3 tips to throw an unforgettable bridal shower party. Bridal showers are wonderful events where the bride's friends get together and invest in everything she will need for married life. These celebrations have taken on a life of their own in recent years, turning into dinner and cocktail parties that sometimes last the entire day. If you're the maid of honor and you're throwing together a bash for your best friend, be sure to keep the following tips in mind to keep the party moving along smoothly and to make gift-buying much easier.

1. Split up the gift buying. Since bridal shower parties are meant to supply the new bride with everything she'll need in her new home, you don't want to overload one specific area. You can make gift buying much easier for your attendees by splitting it up between each room of the house. A handful of people will invest in kitchen supplies while another will get items specifically for the bedroom. This will ensure that the new bride has a selection of accents for her entire home.

2. Party games. Bridal showers can tend to slow down when everyone is sitting around watching the bride-to-be open her gifts, so throw a few party games into the mix. According to, one game to try is a purse treasure hunt - have everyone hold their purses on their laps and call out items that are commonly found in purses and hand out prizes to those that have them. You can start off with basic items like driver's licenses and keys, and give out bigger prizes for something potentially comical.

3. Decorations and cuisine. Be sure to give your guests a cocktail when they come in the door and have a selection of finger foods and appetizers for them to enjoy during the celebration. You can also choose to throw a dinner party - whip up the bride's favorite dish and pour a bottle of wine to chat and enjoy each other's company. Deck out your space with personalized banners, party tableware, streamers and party centerpieces to infuse your venue with festive color. These quick additions will help create the jovial atmosphere you're looking for.

These bridal shower party supplies and a few advance preparations will ensure that the bride-to-be in your life has a fabulous sendoff into married life.
