What Happens at a Bridal Shower

If you have never attended a bridal shower before, you may be wondering what happens at a bridal shower?

A bridal shower is a party hosted for the bride-to-be with decorations, food, drinks, games, & gifts. It is an event to celebrate the bride-to-be before her wedding day with her close friends and family!

Bridal Shower Decorations

When you arrive, one of the first things you will notice are the bridal shower decorations. They set the tone for the party and often reflect the theme of the wedding!

Gifts

Finally, the bride-to-be will open gifts from her family and friends to start their new home. One superstition is that the number of ribbons the bride-to-be breaks is the number of kids she will have! The guests will gather the gift ribbons and attach them to a paper plate to make a ribbon bouquet. It is considered good luck to carry this ribbon bouquet during the wedding rehearsal!
