Bridal Shower Planning

Bridal showers have come a long way in recent years. With good Bridal Shower Planning and the help of a few friends, this day can be made to be a very fun and memorable day for the bride-to-be.


Who to Invite?

mothers, future "mother in law", stepmothers

grandmothers of the bride and groom

sisters of the bride and groom


maid / matron of honor

bridesmaid, flower girls, junior bridesmaid

close friends of the bride

any women that are invited to the wedding

the groom and fathers of the bride and groom


Invitation Ideas

Unless the sky is the limit as far as the Bridal Shower Planning Budget is concerned, the bridal shower invitations do not need to break the bank. Some cheaper alternatives to having custom printed invitations made could be as follows:

  • Create your own custom designed invitations using graphic programs on your computer. Print to card stock paper.

  • Find an appropriate photograph of the bride to be, make copies and use the back side to write out the invitation. Mail in an envelope.

  • Check local department stores for pre printed invitations and envelopes.

Remember to: 

  • Enclose a map with directions to the wedding shower. 

  • Include a list of Bridal Registries that the bride is registered with. This way guests will know what the bride-to-be would like for gift ideas.

Trivia Game

Write down 10 questions about the bride and groom. The questions could be multiple choice, true or false or just any questions. This is to see how well the guests know the bride and groom. The guest with the most questions right wins a prize. Some questions could be: Where did they meet? What is their favourite restaurant? Etc.

Pre-Addressed Envelope Door Prize Game

As guests arrive hand them an envelope and asked them to write down their address on it, then it's put in a basket. One envelope is drawn, and the winning guest receives a prize. Then the envelopes, (already addressed) along with the thank you cards are given to the bride-to-be. This makes it very easy for the bride to send out the thank you cards.

The Clothespin Game

The person putting on the shower buys a bag of clothespins. Each guest receives one when they arrive. Then you tell your guests that they are forbidden to say a particular word. For example the grooms "name" or the word "bride". If another guest catches you saying the forbidden word, they get your clothespin. The guest with the most clothespins at the end of the game receives a prize. Another popular version is that you can not cross your legs at any time. If you are caught you loose a clothespin.

What's The Bride Wearing Game

Everyone gets a piece of paper and pen. During the shower the bride-to-be is asked to leave the room.Everyone must write down what the bride-to-be is wearing. After a few minutes the bride-to-be is asked back into the room and the one with the closest description wins.
