Deciding on a Unique Bridal Shower Favor to Thank Your Guests
So you’ve decided to throw a shower for the bride-to-be. At first, this task may seem overwhelming. Where to start? One way to begin is by picking a theme for your shower. Maybe you want to have a traditional shower for the bride; a “girl’s only” affair with tea and finger food, silly games and gifts of the lacy and romantic variety. Or, maybe you’ll opt for a more modern “couples shower”, for men and women to attend, where everyone can mingle over drinks and enjoy burgers from the grill.
Whatever you decide on, it is certain that you will want to send your guests home with a unique bridal shower favor to thank them with. Here are a few suggestions to get the ideas flowing!
Start by thinking about the couple and what suits their personalities. Perhaps they love Hawaii. How about a luau themed shower with leis, tropical drinks and a limbo bar? A fun idea for some bridal shower favors for this party could be a flip-flop luggage tag, or a tiny beach pail candle holder.
Or maybe your bride is a big cook
Or maybe your bride is a big cook! How about a bridal shower with a kitchen appliance theme or baking theme? Almost all newlyweds need help stocking their kitchen, and there are an abundance of gift ideas for your guests to draw from. If the guests are bringing kitchen gadgets for the couple, why not send them home with something for their own kitchen? A set of heart measuring spoons or a heart-shaped whisk would be a perfect favor or gift for this occasion!
What could be more fun than an afternoon tea bridal shower?
What could be more fun than an afternoon tea bridal shower? Think dainty tea cups, croquet in the garden, and tiny finger sandwiches. A heart shaped tea infuser or a mini teacup tealight holder would make such elegant bridal shower favors for this gathering. A tea party theme bridal shower is best celebrated outdoors or you can bring the outdoors in by setting up in a sun room. Tea party bridal showers are great in spring or early summer, when the weather is just perfect for an intimate event with your closest girlfriends.
Finally, most ladies love to be pampered! If this is the case, why not opt for a spa themed bridal shower where your bridesmaids can give facials and massages to your guests. Favors can include, personalized lip gloss, a manicure or pedicure set, a personalized cosmetic bag or personalized shower gels.
Whatever you decide on for your theme, remember that the most important part is to have fun with it! Don’t forget to ask for help if you need it, and with a little planning and organizing, you are sure to have a bridal shower success!
