One of the key things that'll minimize the stress for you, is choosing a bridal shower theme that's doable. By picking a manageable theme, your event will come together in a cinch without all of the hassle of planning something a little more complicated. Here are 3 stress-free bridal shower themes that are elegant, fun and manages to be easy events you can plan.
A Bubbly Brunch Party
Brunch is a popular meal that many bridal showers are planned around. Maybe there's something comforting about weekend brunch or simply because French toast is a universally loved dish. What's also a loved feature of brunch are the mimosas!
If the bride and her gals have been known to throw back a champagne glass, or two, then a bubbly boozy brunch is the theme to go for. Combine some of our favorite brunch recipes with a champagne bar, and the guests will be getting tipsy in no time!
We love this champagne bar set up featured on One Wed. This photo definitely is inspiring us for the next bridal shower we are tasked with!
Pick a Color, All Colors
A lot of times, bridal showers are organized by selecting a specific color. But the problem with that is you'll need to run around town and all over the internet finding items to match that exact shade of lavender or pale yellow. Rather than limiting yourself to one color, why not choose all?!
A colorful event that incorporate bold bright hues from the entire rainbow makes your shopping and planning process much similar. By using natural elements like flowers and combing them with trendy printables and colorful candles, it's easy to decorate for a brightly colored bridal shower. We love this centerpiece idea from Wedding Chicks that uses wedding planning books as the focal point. We're sure the bride will have an endless supply of books and magazines so put them to good use!
Throw a Fancy Tea Party Shower
Tea parties are great for a ladies-only event. They're frilly, girly and dainty: all things females love. With so many delicious teas out there, it's easy to center your bridal shower around the flavors of tea.
Bridal Musings featured this bridal shower tea party that had a table offering up a variety of teas for guests to sip on. With tea party food favorites like cucumber sandwiches, cookies and other sweet pastries, this bridal shower theme is actually quite easy to pull together. Ask all the girls to arrive in pretty floral dresses and sun hats and you've got yourself a whimsical shower that the bride will adore.
Remember, it's not your big day where you need to get stressed beyond belief! But because you love the bride, you want to throw her a memorable shower. So choose a theme wisely that delicately balances your blood pressure levels and her expectations and you'll host an event that will go off without a hitch!
