A step-by-step bridal shower planning guide|
Here is a step-by-step planning guide to help you devise a perfect attack plan.
Select a date: Six weeks before the marriage is the perfect time to throw a bridal shower. But it may need more than a monthís time to make a perfect planning for it. So, if you have decided to have a bridal shower party, start planning sufficiently early and select a tentative date.
Decide about the theme: To begin with, decide about the party theme. An increasing number bridal shower parties are now also involving boys so if you too are planning for something like that choose a theme that both the girls and boys can enjoy.
Make a guest list: After deciding about the theme make a list of the guests who you would like to come for the party. If you are inviting your out-station relatives make sure that they receive the invitation sufficiently early.
Choose an invitation card: Select the perfect bridal shower invitation card that will match with the theme of the occasion. You can now shop online for invitation cards and personalize them accordingly. You can also send e-cards and stop worrying that your card will not reach to the guest on time.
Select food: You need to carefully choose the food to suit the mood of the party. If you are planning a casual party you can decide for finger foods and sandwiches, or else, you can have a backyard barbeque party. You can also send potluck dinner invitations to your guests.
Plan some activities: To make sure that everyone present at the party is actually enjoying it, plan some bridal shower party games. Some interesting bridal shower party games are:

Gifts for guests: Show your gratitude to your guests with a token of love. Choose some small gifts like a keychain or purse mirror with the names or the photos of the bride and groom engraved on them, a set of tea light candles, or a box of gourmet chocolates to give away to the guests at the end of the party.
Say thanks: Donít forget to show your appreciation for the gifts you received. As a custom the bride is required to open the gifts received during the bridal shower in front of her guests and show her appreciation. Send thank you notes to your guests at the end of the party thanking them both for coming and for their gifts.
