Traditionally, the bride is forbidden from planning her own bridal shower. Most often, it is the Maid of Honor, a bridesmaid or the bride’s mother that plan this pre-wedding event. However, it is worth keeping in mind that this is about the only thing that’s still traditional about bridal showers.
In fact, most of the other elements are very much different than what they used to be just a few decades ago. What are the new etiquette tips to keep in mind when planning a bridal shower? Read on and find out more.
- The location. Most bridal showers used to take place in a family member’s living room. Still, this is not a “must”. If you want to offer your friend or relative something more unique and elegant, you can definitely plan the bridal shower at a restaurant – and she will be more than appreciative of your idea!
- The centerpieces and the décor. If you choose to plan this bridal shower at a restaurant, please keep in mind that you should be able to pack away all the centerpieces (and that you should also be able to quickly arrange them on the restaurant tables you’ve booked). We suggest minimal bouquets and a touch of sentimentalism with some photo collages including the happy couple and some of the most important people in the bride’s life.
- The hashtag. If you want to be able to gather all the Social Media photos in one place, create a unique hashtag for this beautiful pre-wedding party. Make sure to share the hashtag with the guests (on the invitations, on the menu, and so on), so that they know how to share their photos of the bridal shower on the Social Media.
