What To Expect During Your Bridal Shower Celebration

Your bridal shower is a chance to enjoy yourself, and celebrate your upcoming wedding with people who are important to you. Traditionally, this event also gives friends and family members an early opportunity to gift you with items that you can use to set up your new home with your partner. While you can certainly discuss your preferences and desires for this event, you will not have to plan and organize it yourself, making this a nice break for you during your efforts to plan your wedding. As with so many elements of wedding planning, you can decide if you want to enjoy something traditional, or something a little unconventional as you celebrate.

Who Should I Trust To Host And Plan The Bridal Shower?

The bride may be the star of the bridal shower, but she is not the person responsible for arranging it. This responsibility often falls to your maid or matron of honor, with support from your bridesmaids. You can also have your family members take on the planning and organizing efforts. Sharing what you want from the event is perfectly acceptable, but remember that wedding planning can take up considerable time and energy. Having other people in charge can let you keep your attention on other matters. (If you are looking for a way to remove even more wedding planning tasks from your schedule, you can talk to Texas Old Town about our All-Inclusive Wedding Package.)

Who Attends The Bridal Shower?

The bridal shower is typically just for women, though you can certainly break from this tradition if you choose. In fact, you can certainly extend an invitation to everyone by hosting a wedding shower, where the attention will fall on both you and your partner. One thing you should avoid is inviting people who will not receive an invitation to your wedding.

When Should My Bridal Shower Take Place?

Many people host a bridal shower relatively close to their wedding date. While it is common for people to hold their event between two months and two weeks before their walk down the aisle, this is not mandatory. Creating more separation between the events means hosting a bridal shower in a different season than your wedding, which can inspire a different color scheme and atmosphere for your shower. More separation may also make it easier for out of town guests to attend your shower. Traveling twice can be easier when someone has more time between requests for time off from work, and more time to save between trips.
