A lot goes in to planning an amazing bridal shower. From choosing the perfect food to bridal favors, this is no easy feat. The biggest step is choosing the perfect Austin bridal shower theme (ideally, one which the bride loves). Once the theme is decided, everything else will be easier as you already have an outline.
Have a bride that is dreamy? Or maybe she loves being the life of a party? Brodie Homestead presents truly awesome bridal shower themes that’ll blow your mind!
The Cocktail Lover:
Does the bride have a penchant for cocktails? Build a make-your-own-cocktail bar and stock up with all the fixings for her favorite drinks. The hour doesn’t get any happier than that!
Break the Tradition:
If you think that the bride will love celebrating the shower with her love, then give her that! Invite the hubby-to-be and the rest of the family and plan a festive event with lots of laughter!
The Vintage Love:
If the bride-to-be loves all things vintage, consider choosing a charming vintage theme for the shower. You can curate a collection of vintage glassware, cutlery, vases, and picture frames for the occasion. Add the final touch with blooming flowers in pastel hues.
A Black-tie Affair:
Typically, the bridal shower themes tend to run toward a fairly informal theme, but if the potential bride loves the black-tie vibe, choose a “elegantly formal” theme. Make sure the venue fits the theme and let the guests know that the dress code is formal.
Une affaire Française!:
Ah the French charm. What’s more picturesque than an elegant gathering of women wearing pretty parasols and eating cake? If the bride loves French themes and basically everything that ‘says’ French, she’ll love a shower that’s inspired by the French queen, Marie Antoinette herself.
Cooking it Together:
Instead of coordinating a shower party, pack up and attend a cooking class together. If the bride is a foodie or simply enjoys unique adventures, she will love learning a cooking skill or two.
The Flower Child Shower:
If the bride loves flowers and you are planning to surprise her with one of her all-time favorite things, you can’t go wrong with the flower-child theme. Have the guests and the bride greeted with flower crowns, flower combs, or boutonnieres, and make it an all-flower event.
The wedding planning and preparation can take a toll on anyone. Surprise the bride and her guests with a day of luxurious pampering at a spa. She will leave the spa totally relaxed and rejuvenated – ready to tackle the rest of the planning.
A Little Self Love:
Playing off the previous theme, if you love the idea of pampering the bride, but aren’t sure about the big spa bill, this is what you can do. Create an at-home event with scented candles and fairy lights, and stock up on manicure kits, face masks, foot creams, or whatever you think the bride will appreciate and your budget will allow.
Is the bride a film-fanatic or an avid reader? Surprise her with a shower that’s based on her favorite film or novel. Choose the color palette, dress code, and menu accordingly.
Choose a favorite color of the bride – pink in this case – and plan the décor and menu around it.
A Holiday Theme:
This is a truly fun one. Assign each guest a holiday and have them buy gifts for the bride-to-be accordingly. The results will be amazing – a picnic basket for the Fourth of July, Christmas decoration and ornaments, crystal glasses for New Year’s Eve, and so on.
