With wedding season in full swing, the popular western concept of bridal showers seems to have taken centre stage. Almost every bride-to-be looks forward to be thrown a fabulous bridal shower with a glamorous theme, music games and of course, gifts.
Here are some of our favourite themes that can be incorporated into a bridal shower you are planning for your sister or friend, as compiled by elegantweddinginvites.com.
Timeless vintage: Throw a bridal shower inspired by a shabby-chic vintage look for a memorable evening filled with fun and laughter. From vintage invites to decor, organise a sophisticated bridal shower that takes the guests back to the 1970s.
Breakfast at Tiffany’s: Want to keep it classy? Host a Breakfast at Tiffany’s-themed shower and bring the romantic American comedy to life with Tiffany blue, pale pink, white and black colour-schemed decor. A Tiffany & Co box-inspired cake and cupcakes along with an Audrey Hepburn-inspired dress code will make the bride-to-be’s day.
Beauty bar salon: For a bride who loves to pamper herself and get dressed, this theme fits the bill. Unwind with massages, manicures and makeovers. The salon-inspired theme will allow you to pamper the guests, especially the bride-to-be, who will probably be snowed under with pre-wedding chores.
Retro-inspired: A retro-based look is an exciting theme for a bride who loves retro things and is unlikely to be a typical housewife. Using a mix of turquoise and red, you can achieve a bold retro look. Indulge in a retro evening and let the bride-to-be feel like a diva.
Passport to Paris: Known as the ‘city of love’, a Paris-inspired theme is ideal to make the bride-to-be feel loved. Using mini Eiffel-tower statuettes as decoration pieces and serving tasty French macaroons would make up for a stunning evening. Blow away the bride-to-be and guests with a Parisian feel. Parfait, we say!
