Four Tips for Hosting an Elegant Bridal Shower



Calling all maids of honor, bridesmaids, and friends of soon-to-be brides! When congratulations are in order, host a bridal shower. This task may feel overwhelming, so we have compiled a list of four tips for hosting an elegant bridal shower that will be an extraordinary event to remember for the years to come.


The bridal shower typically takes place between two to six months prior to the wedding. Choosing a location, date, and the appropriate decorations for the event, sending out invitations and preparing the food, drinks, and activities take time. Plan for the event as far in advance as possible.

Working out the details will allow you to enjoy the festivities with friends and family on the day of the event. When working out the details, be creative! Choose a signature cocktail and theme for the event, make a slideshow or a game of trivia, or pack a picnic for a garden party.

Creativity will transform the ordinary into the extraordinary.

Gifts For The Bride

Finding a meaningful bridal shower gift may seem daunting. Jewelry never disappoints. A beautifully framed photo of the bride-to-be with her loved ones will be cherished forever. Michael Aram offers intricately designed silver and gold botanical picture frames appropriate for celebratory occasions.

Pajamas and robes also make fabulous bridal shower gifts. For luxurious comfort and style, shop Eberjey’s PJ Set and Modal Robe. If you are looking to spice things up, you may also explore Cosabella’s extensive and high-end lingerie.

For an everyday extraordinary gift, Weston Table offers a collection of custom-engraved pewter and glass vases, napkin rings, champagne buckets, and bowls. These unique wedding gifts will become cherished heirlooms to be passed down from one generation to the next.

Champagne, Of Course

But first, champagne! Make your day sparkling by popping open a bottle of bubbly. Certainly, nothing is better suited for celebrations than champagne.

You may order champagne in advance to be delivered on the day of your event from Ninety Plus Cellars, an affordable company that privately labels the world’s best wines and ships nationwide to consumers. Their stellar collection of sparkling wines will elevate your “cheers to the bride.”

To ensure everyone is included in the celebratory toast, you may offer sparkling cider for those who choose not to imbibe. We contend that Martinelli’s makes the ultimate sparkling cider.


The food will be heavily dependent on the time of day of the event. Whether it be brunch, an afternoon picnic, or a dinner party, catering from a local favorite restaurant, fishmonger, or cheese shop is recommended.

Preparing a meal in addition to considering all the details of the day leads to extra added stress that may be alleviated with the help of your tried-and-true favorite locals in charge of the food.

As the bridal shower nears, the excitement around the event will build. Enjoy the special time with friends and family before the bride-to-be embarks on the next chapter of her life.
