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!
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!
Next, it’s time to eat! Here are some typical bridal shower food & drinks that you can expect to devour:
Then, it’s time to play a bridal shower game! Popular bridal shower games include printables with questions about the bride and groom or questions about wedding traditions. These games are fun for all ages and whoever gets the most questions right wins a prize!
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!
