It’s wedding season! We are excited to help our summer brides create the wedding of their dreams. Along with weddings, brides typically attend 1-3 bridal showers which are hosted by friends and family. Wedding showers are typically held between two weeks and two months prior to the wedding.
Friends and family – this post is for you! While the brides are in full-blown event planner mode, many of us haven’t hosted an event for a while (or ever!). When you volunteer or are asked to host a bridal shower, you might A) panic a little; B) get excited because you already have a dedicated Pinterest board; or C) a little of both. Stay calm! Everything is going to be fine!
These days, the pressures of hosting a picture-perfect shower are high (thanks, social media!), but don’t let that get you down! Don’t focus too much time and energy on hosting the “perfect shower.” Instead, focus on creating a fun event that your lovely bride will cherish. Does she want an extravagant affair or simple and laid back? Does she want to play games or would she rather focus on conversations? Work with your bride to determine which date works best, what activities she would like to occur, and how many guests will be expected.
