Plan Ahead for your Bridal Shower Favors
Bridal Shower Favors
A bridal shower is a pre-wedding event often hosted by a bride’s female friends and family. Etiquette dictates that all those who are invited to the bridal shower must also be invited to the wedding, but the guest list is always shorter (sometimes just the closest friends of the bride) and usually entirely female. There’s no rule that says bridal showers can’t be co-ed, but a bride’s shower can be a great time to kick back in an estrogen-fueled environment and talk about girlie things before the big day.
If you’re hosting a bridal shower, it can be a little nerve-wracking – especially if it’s your first time. Bridal showers can become mini events in themselves, and they have many of the components of the actual wedding, including food, centerpieces, and even bridal shower favors.
How can you be sure that the bridal shower favors you’ve selected will be as unique and interesting as the rest of your event?
Well, bridal shower favors have the advantage of not being intended for both genders. Bridal shower favors are more of a female thing, so traditional and universal gifts such as soaps and mini scented candles will always go over well. If you’re in a rush and don’t have much time to plan, these bridal shower favors are a good go-to.
If you have a little more time, and you want to make sure the bridal shower favors you select will be the hit of your event, consider a mani/pedi set, elegant serving dishes (for olives or cheeses), or just purchase unique and flirty packaging for hand-made gifts like chocolate or jewelry as your bridal shower favors.
A bridal shower may be for showering the bride with gifts, but that doesn’t mean your guests have to go home empty handed!
