A Guide to Bridal Showers

Posted on by Alexa Gould

Excitement is in the air as your wedding day draws closer. Once you’re engaged, it is likely that your friends and family will start asking about your bridal shower. This is a great time to start building relationships with your partner’s family if you haven’t yet. Follow our guide to bridal showers for a smooth, fun celebration.

Often, the bride’s parents or close friends host the bridal shower. This is not a definitive rule. Feel free to decide who you most want to host. According to Martha Stewart Weddings, bridal showers are typically held 3 weeks to 3 months before the wedding. Once a date has been decided, it’s time to send out the invitations. Bridal shower invitations should showcase your personality and play to theme if you have one. Try to send out the invitations at least a month in advance to give people time to add the event to their schedules. It’s standard to invite local family of the bride and groom and close friends of the bride. Also, it’s polite to only invite people to the bridal shower who are also invited to the wedding.
