So now that it’s your turn to attend your own bridal shower, start dropping hints to your bridesmaids that you are looking for something unique when it comes to bridal shower themes!

Celebrate the Love with Love Letters

When wedding hooplah begins, brides tend to forget about what got them here in the first place: love! Remind yourself and your guests about the beautiful love you share with your man by planning a love letter inspired bridal shower.


This theme featured on Whimsical Printables is truly special as it showcases homemade elements that really capture the concept perfectly.

The paper embellishments around this cake can easily be used throughout your tablescape. Mount guest names on seating cards printed out on famous love letters is one way to use words on a page in your decor.

Try to hand write things whenever possible to give your decor a more personalized look. This party featured hearts wall décor made out of handwritten love letter pages.

It’s Literally Raining!

Since it’s a shower, it might be witty to incorporate literal rain and shower elements to your party. These umbrellas suspended from the ceiling on Canvas and Canopy offer up plenty of inspiration for you to choose this idea out of all of these bridal shower themes.


After seeing these umbrellas, I dug around for more rain inspired tips and was pleasantly surprised by what I found. I love these paper clouds on straws featured here . It's such a simple DIY idea you can make and it's actually quite cute!


Favorite Movie Turned Bridal Shower: Eat, Pray, Love

If there’s any movie out there that’s inspirational, Eat, Pray, Love has got it be in. Not only does the film offer a journey on food, but the exotic locales featured help in decorating for a bridal shower based on the movie and book.


City of Dionne planned this beautiful bridal shower centered around the book that incorporated the delicious cuisines, pretty fabrics and calligraphy. This may not have been the first idea to come to mind when thinking of bridal shower themes, but it's certainly a unique idea any bookworm bride would appreciate.

So if you're looking to have a different kind of bridal shower, think about some nontraditional things that you can build your event around. Whether it's the a movie or a book or even the weather, you can certainly find a focal point that will make your shower unique.
