Decorations – One of the best things about throwing a bridal shower is choosing the decorations. Decorations for your shower should pull together the look you’re trying to. The decorations at a bridal shower are very important, particularly if it will be themed. Your decorations can be bright and dramatic, or soft and romantic. Confer with the bridesmaids about the theme of the bridal shower, establish a budget, and finalize decision about decorations, menu, favors, and music and bridal shower games.
Not all bridal shower invitations are created equal. Depending on which approach you choose, you can wind up with invitations that vary greatly in terms of quality. Off the shelf invitations are usually created with standard card stock while handmade invitations allow you choose your paper and allow you to use high quality blends that are much nicer to the touch. With off the shelf bridal shower invitations you also run the risk of using invitations that perhaps some of your friends have used in the past. Because your guests may keep the invitation well into the future as a keepsake, it is a good choice to go for quality when choosing your bridal shower invitations.
Getting Your Bridal Shower Invitations Out on Time – You want to make sure that your bridal shower invitations are put in the mail with plenty of time for your guests to respond and for you to get a clear count on your guest list. A good time frame for mailing is 2-3 months prior to the bridal shower.
