Make It Count! 8 Bridal Shower Themes You Might Want To Consider

The bridal shower is one of the quintessential pre-wedding celebrations that takes place between the bride and her party. This century-old tradition is typically organized by the maid of honor and bridesmaids, and in recent years, themed showers have become increasingly popular.

The perfect bridal shower theme will take the bride’s tastes into consideration, while leaving her with some surprises along the way. The problem lies in organizing a shower that stands out from all the others while keeping it classic. Here are a few theme ideas to get you brainstorming.

1. Alice in Wonderland

    This has become a fairly common theme for various parties and special occasions — but that doesn’t mean it can’t be unique. There are infinite ways to decorate and organize an Alice in Wonderland-themed party — from the outfits to the activities to the whimsical decorations. Many of the props for this theme can be found at thrift stores and antique shops.

    Suggested party size: 15 guests

    2. Mod-Inspired

      This retro, Mad Man-esque bridal shower is all about flowers, old school records, and vintage clothes. When was the last time you saw a jello mold? How about the last time you had an excuse to wear a flowerchild ring of flowers around your head? This festive theme is great for brides who want to reminisce about the old days with a whimsical flair. Vintage items can be a bit pricey, thus organizers will save significantly by refurbishing old appliances and furniture they already have.

      Suggested party size: 20 guests

      3. Valentine’s Day

        Ideal for any bride that wants an excuse play dress-up, this theme takes an outside-the-box approach to bridal showers, which aren’t often associated with Valentine’s Day. Have guests attend in Marie Antoinette-style attire, indulge in the most decadent desserts, and don’t skimp on the red heart balloons.

        Suggested party size: 5-10 guests

        4. Pancake Breakfast

          The pancake breakfast theme takes cute to the next level with a tastefully kitschy outdoor dining setup. Small, carefully chosen details are what make this theme stand out — like simple vintage centerpieces, pale pink table clothes, matching utensils, and name tags. This theme is ideal for any bride who wants a simple, down-to-earth celebration with a few close friends.

          Suggested party size: 5-10 guests

          5. Charity

            Some couples who have lived together for a while already have all the home essentials they could possibly need. In cases like this, a charity-themed shower may be the perfect way to celebrate without the pressure of searching for appropriate gifts. Guests can bring donations or gifts to benefit the bride’s favorite charity.

              There will never be a better opportunity to whip up some icy summer beverages than at an outdoor summer bridal shower. This lacy white and green theme is a refreshing way to welcome the new season with leafy pops of color, fresh flowers, lemonade, and a minimalist table setting. Matching wedding wine labels are a beautiful accessory to customize your creations.

              Suggested party size: 5-10 guests

              7. Tea Party

From the top-notch pastries, to the make-your-own special bath tea stand, each detail of this theme will transform your party into a porcelain wonderland. DIY bath ingredients include epsom salts, lemon verbena, rose petals, and lavender. Guests leave with their own customized party favor.

                Suggested party size: 15+ guests

                  This theme is perfect for a bride who doesn’t want a big fuss and would rather just have a fun night in (or out) with her bridal party. To pull this off, look for local classes taught on any subject of interest, from cooking to painting to sewing. Some businesses will offer discounts or bulk packages for larger parties or special occasions. Guests will walk away with their own creation and a keepsake to remember your bridal shower.

                  Suggested party size: 15+ guests

                  Keep these unique and inspiring bridal shower themes in mind to create an unforgettable experience for your bridal party.
