Ideally, bridal shower thank you cards should be sent no more than two weeks after the shower, but even if you forget, it is never too late to say thank you. Each and every attendant is to be thanked whether they brought a gift or not. Do not combine the thank you cards with any other type of card. For example, if two guests came to the bridal shower, and only one had given a gift, send each one a thank you card specifically for coming to the bridal shower, but then include an acknowledgment of the gift given by the one who presented it to you.
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.
Candle Favors – Candle favors are one of the most popular party souvenirs for bridal showers. You can find a wide selection of beautiful candles that can make a perfect memorabilia of your shower. Candle favors come in different styles, designs, colors and themes. If you are planning for beach themed bridal shower, beach-themed candles makes a perfect thank you gift for each guest. Most of candle favors are votive gels, and usually decorated with beautiful ribbons and thoughtful tags. Above all, candle favors aren’t only a delightful option, but also a practical suggestion if you have a tight budget.
If you have out of town guests, this will also allow you some time to arrange accommodations at a local hotel. With group booking you can usually get a discount on the room rate for your out of town guests. This information can also be included in your invitations.
Remember to thank the host/hostess, and if possible attach a gift to go along with the note of thanks, for all the love and hard work that had been put into the event. The gift could be an ornament, a box of chocolates or anything that would be of value to him/her, and which is not too costly. In the card mention the gift received and the success of the bridal shower with a personal compliment to the person.
