When you are assigned to a specific kind of task, you want to always give it your best. You want to make the most out of it and not let anything ruin the prepared plans you already have. This is especially true when you are considering a very important event, like a once in a lifetime bridal shower.
Girls always want the very best they can have. They always take pleasure in getting noticed. Although guys do feel the same way, the soon-to-bride just wants to have all the attention for herself on that second-most precious event (of course, the wedding day itself is the first).
There are some things needed to be considered before and during the wedding shower. If you are having a big party, you might as well know these important guidelines:
Date the Day as a "Must"
Choose a date which is certainly applicable for those who will attend the shower party, mainly the bride and the mothers of both the bride and the groom. Most commonly chosen dates are either two months or two weeks before the actual wedding.
Get the Guest List Picked
The bride primarily holds the authority of picking whoever and how many guests she wants to join her in her party. Let her name and pick those she would like to invite. It is deeply recommended to not invite any guest who is not part of the list.
This is the part where you and whoever helps you show their creative side of party planning. Select a theme everybody will surely not forget. You can choose any theme as long as it satisfies you. Mostly known themes include: lingerie showers, honeymoon showers, and around-the-clock showers.
Mark the Location
Your choice of location depends on how much money you are willing to throw for the party's success. It also depends on the people that will gather together on the said event. Also your location should coincide with your selected theme. Decide whether it would be private or public party.
Create the Invitation
Invitations usually are sent in at least three weeks advance. You can mail them or deliver the invitations personally. If mailed, remember to include a card which will elicit their response to the invitation with their contact number also written. Be artistic with your invitation. It should reflect the type of theme you have.
The arrangements and plans for the food should be discussed and settled beforehand to prevent arguments that will rise as the day comes closer. Commonly served at showers like this are finger foods. Full meals can also be served.
Never let the mood turn dull. Prepare games that boost the energy of the participants. This also gives the chance for everyone to mingle and socialize with others in there, so better have it nice and cool.
A bridal shower is a once-in-a-lifetime event for a bride, so you should make it as special as you can. Invite the right people, eat great food, and enjoy the games.
