Bridal showers can be a lot of fun, and they are one of the many steps you can take to help a friend with wedding planning. However, they can also be stressful and overwhelming due to their complexity. So we have compiled this list of ideas for throwing an enjoyable and memorable bridal shower party for your friend.
If your friend has a special preference or likes something random, you can tweak the ideas to meet her needs.
Try Wine Tasting With a Professional Sommelier
You can bring a bottle of wine to serve to the guests or have your friend’s special guest bring a selection of the best non-alcoholic wine to pair with appetizers. Wine tasting can be a great activity if you want to raise the bar for what’s expected at your friend’s bridal shower.
Learn How to Spin Like a DJ
Are you a fan of music? If so, this is the perfect party game. If you’re really into music and have a good ear, try incorporating some of your friend’s favorite songs into the mix. You could also ask your friend if she has any suggestions for songs that might be appropriate or include her favorite artists. Be the Dj and spin the music.
Cook Your Favorite Recipes
Take some of your friend’s favorite recipes and make them into sweet (for dessert only) or savory treats. Avoid things that require too much prep time since this may make the shower more chaotic. Prepare them the night before and let your host know you’ll bring them in the morning.
Play Appetizer Tossing Games
You can try games like “Egg-Drop” and “Duck, Duck Goose,” where you have to keep your eyes on the appetizer jar for the participants to see what is being thrown at them. You can also have gift card games and table games.
Have a Photo Booth or Disco-themed Entertainment Area
Have friends take pictures with your friend, her parents, and anyone else you think would look nice in a picture. It is a great way to keep the party going and create new memories to cherish. You could also create an album of old family photos that you can give to your friend as a wedding gift if she doesn’t already have one like this.
Have friends and family members bring some or make a jewelry box for you to put the latest pieces for sale. A few gems and colored stones would be a great starting place.
Buy the best charm and design for your friend (or quote something meaningful to her) from the vendor, and then add it to the necklace.
Hire a Good-Looking Chef
Ask everyone to bring their favorite recipes that they would like to make and then have the chef prepare them for you. It can be a great way to keep the food flowing between games and help ensure that everyone is fed and happy. A good-looking chef will make your bridal shower even more fun and memorable.
Learn to Apply Makeup
If you are a makeup expert, you can teach your friends and family how to do different looks with cosmetics. It is a great way to pamper your friend for the day and make her feel special.
It can be a great way to ensure that the groom gets one-on-one time with his future bride. If there are people who aren’t familiar with Makeup, you can make tutorials or try offering them some tips so they look their best for the wedding.
Hire an Airbnb
Airbnb is a great way to try out new things and see what your friends and family members like doing. Airbnb’s unique because they have various accommodations, such as private bedrooms, house rentals, and villas. You can do activities like a cooking class or art creation.
Review the host’s online accounts or pictures before making your reservations, and check out the reviews if there are any posted on them from previous guests!
Your friend’s bridal shower is a day filled with fun and laughter. Bridal shower ideas should be flexible to allow your friend to have the shower she wants, and it’s up to you to make that happen.
