Bridal shower theme ideas can help turn a boring shower into a fun-filled
In recent years themed showers have become more and more popular.
When choosing a theme, always keep in mind what the bride's interests are and what her needs are.
After you choose a theme, coordinate the invitations, food, decorations and favors.
Make your theme the focal point of the party.
Wedding showers are usually held at one of the hostess or relative's homes.
Having the party at someone's home gives you greater flexibility and saves you money.
However, you will have to clean up before and after, and you may not have room for everyone you would like to invite.
One way to make your wedding shower unique is to consider holding it at an unusual site.
A Few Suggestions Are:
Plan your event so that is unpredictable and memorable!
Each guest is assigned a letter of the alphabet and asked to bring a gift that corresponds to that letter. For example, the guest with the letter B, could bring a bottle of wine, book, or bath towels.

If the bride is a book lover or an aspiring writer, she'll love a By-the-Book Bridal Shower theme idea.
Have the guests bring books from any category or you could assign each guest a certain category - like, cooking, how-to, fiction, mystery, biography, or inspirational.
If the bride has a favorite author, see if you can arrange for an autographed book as a special gift.
Have the invitations be bookmarks or book-shaped that open with the invitation information.
Party favors could be gift certificates to a local bookstore.
Can't Live Without It
As a gift for the bride, have the guests bring something that they have found that they just can't live without.
It is interesting to see what people think they can't live without.
Couples/Coed Showers have become increasingly popular in the past few years.
These parties are a great way to involve the groom and his male friends in some of the prewedding festivities.
A couples shower can range from an intimate dinner party to a casual pool party.

Gift Basket Shower
Have each guest bring a basket or a container with gifts for a certain room of the house.
A few examples are:
Holiday Bridal Shower
If you know that the bride has already had several showers or that she really likes a certain holiday, then this is a great idea for her.
You can choose one holiday theme or go with various holidays. Ask the guests to bring gifts that center around the holiday theme you choose.
Decorate around the theme you choose.
For instance, if the theme is Christmas, send out invitations with a Christmas tree or Santa, use Christmas decorations and serve a traditional Christmas meal.
If your bridal shower theme idea includes all the holidays, then decorate different areas throughout the room.
For example, Valentines can be in one corner, a small Christmas tree and stockings on the mantle, and Halloween pumpkins and masks in another corner.
Hang out a sign that says, "Holiday Inn" for the guests to see as they walk in. Serve different foods for each holiday.
Give Christmas balls, small toy turkeys, or American flags as favors.
These are still one of the most popular bridal shower theme ideas - despite the increasing popularity of other themes.
At a kitchen bridal shower, guests are free to choose any type of gift that helps stock the kitchen.

If you know that the couple has had several other showers, then give them a Money Tree Shower. Cash is often the most helpful present for a couple just starting out.
Have the guests bring a gift of cash in an envelope.
You can use any decorated potted tree or put a tree branch in a large vase to display the envelopes.
As the guests arrive, they attach their gift of money to the branches of the tree with a clothespin or a ribbon.
At a Pamper Yourself/Spa Shower the bride and the guests get to indulge themselves.
Consider having the shower at a day spa. Or have it around your pool and hire a manicurist or beauty consultant to give facials or makeup tips to the guests.
The guests should bring gifts that pamper the bride. These gifts can be everything from makeup, bubble bath, towels, bath accessories, or a gift certificate for a manicure or facial.
