Top 10 Bridal Shower Themes

Bridal Shower Themes

Hosting a Bridal Shower is a fabulous way to show your friend – a.k.a., “The Bride,” just how much you care about her!

While cupcakes and flowers are always lovely, why not step your Bridal Shower up a notch by creating a unique theme? It’s a great to pull off a fantastic, memorable event. From the invitations to the food; the décor to the gifts; and the games to the music; you can create a theme at very little extra cost. So, get creative and start planning!

 

Here are our Top 10 Bridal Shower Themes to get you started!

 

1. Gourmet Kitchen Theme: Who goes to the grocery store and buys $30 peppercorns? Not too many young couples – so spoil their taste-buds by giving gourmet edible gifts that will enter married life with a well-stocked kitchen. Gift ideas might include fancy oils, spices, artisan preserves, and high end utensils.

2. Between the Sheets Theme: Make the bride-to-be blush by wrapping up the sexiest pieces of seductive silk you can find. Join forces to splurge on an extra-expensive set, buy some barely there accessories, and let her open a gift bag full of Egyptian cotton sheets – and a few naughty toys! 

3. Honeymoon Theme: If you know where the bride and groom are traveling to for their honeymoon, why not craft the bridal shower specifically around their romantic destination? Gift items could include  a carry-on bag full of magazines and snacks, a bikini, sexy lingerie, sunscreen, perfume, and beach accessories.

4. Pamper the Princess Theme: Hire a manicurist and/or pedicurist to take care of everyone’s tired hands and toes. Offer the bride gifts of special lotions, scented bath products, and special spa accessories.

5. Color Theme Shower:  If the bride is known to have an affinity to a specific hue, why not turn it into a bridal shower theme? Whether she loves pink, blue, violet or sage green (or even a specific print, such as damask or polka dots), you can easily turn her color love into a theme! From the décor to the treats, and the gifts (and wrapping) she’ll be thrilled to see her favorite color making an appearance.

6. Monogram Theme: This theme is stylish and chic – and perfect for a bride who plans to change her last name. You might want to talk to her about if first (and see if she already has a monogrammed designed) and then go ahead and spoil her with customized towels, stationary, a handbag – you can personalize virtually anything with a chic monogram!

7. A Cultural Theme: From a love of Italian food to a meeting in Paris, if the couple has a special attraction to a specific culture, turn it into the bridal shower theme! This is also a great theme if the bride is marrying into another culture (consider doing a mixed-culture theme to make sure both sides are included). Then, fill baskets with food, cookbooks, artwork, and items that represent the culture!

8. Fix me a Drink, Darling: From fancy cocktail olives to pretty napkins, most new couples need to stock their bar. Ask guests to bring various items, such as wine, martini glasses, and other bar treats. Just make sure it doesn’t all disappear at the shower!

9. Special Hobby Theme: If you know the bride well, you probably know that she’s really into _________ (fill in the blank: biking, baking, yoga, gardening, etc.). Make a theme of it by bring gifts, having a special class, and playing games that focus on her special interest. She’ll love that you personalized the day around something that she enjoys doing – and it’s a great reminder that she needs to continue taking time for herself as she enters married life.

10. Eco-Friendly Theme: If the bride-to-be is a domestic diva with a green streak, making the shower naturally, organically, environmentally friendly! From the latest in bamboo and hemp fibers to sustainable fabrics and natural lotions, there are loads of gorgeous gifts that are eco-friendly. Be sure to carry the theme all the way through by using recycled newsprint as wrapping paper, and serving only the best organic food!

Choosing to implement a bridal shower theme will actually make planning much easier – all of the general decisions are made in advance! For example, instead of having hundreds of party favors to choose from, you’ll have narrowed down your choices considerably as you’ll want something that suits your theme. Party planning made easy? Now that’s a theme we love!
