Planning the Perfect Bridal Shower
June 10, 2019
The summer of 2019 is here and many of you may be just months away from matrimony. Couples are usually amazed by how quickly time flies by and excited to start the next chapter of life with love.
You’ve probably started developing your registry, picking out wedding invitations, and making the final selections on decorations. All of the planning is coming together. Luckily, there is one part of the wedding you don’t have to plan – the bridal shower!
WHERE AND WHEN
It’s a tradition for bridesmaids and the maid-of-honor to organize and host the bridal shower, but anyone can take on the responsibilities. It is a great opportunity for family and close friends to gather under one roof with some delicious food and celebrate.
The Edison and Ford Winter Estates is the perfect venue for a beautiful outdoor wedding or even a bridal shower. With historic homes, romantic gardens, and spectacular river views, there is something to offer every couple.
Here are some suggested shower activities for guests to do while sipping champagne and tasting delicious desserts.
When guests enter the party, they can be given a strand of beads and simple instructions, such as “every time you say the word ‘bride’ or ‘wedding,’ someone can steal your beads.” Whoever ends up with the most strands at the end of the shower, wins! Of course, you may lose your strand within minutes of setting foot in the building!
Other fun games include a bridal crossword puzzle or a word un-scrambler. In between games and opening presents, guests can eat some great food. It can be the most perfectly relaxed afternoon!
Your registry is probably full of necessities for your new home, and most of the bridal shower guests will pick items off the list accordingly; however, beware – some may go “rogue” and buy some off-registry gifts that just may be a perfect addition to your new space!
You’ll be grateful to family and friends for hosting a fun and adorable shower! You’ll just need to find a place to store all of the gifts and start writing thank you notes!
