More Tips for Planning Wedding Showers

Location and Time
Traditionally, wedding showers are held before the actual wedding day ceremony. However, in today’s modern world, the shower can be held either before or after the big day. It really all depends on what makes sense for the soon-to-be bride and groom. Just be sure to give plenty of notice and include all of the important details on the invite.

As far as location goes, there are no set rules anymore. Tradition says it should be held at the host’s home, but now it’s totally acceptable to have this event at an alternate location. A restaurant, country club, the couple’s church or banquet hall, or other favorite place will do just fine.

Wedding Shower Themes
Themes are all the rage, especially if you’re throwing a couple’s shower. If lots of men are going to be attending, consider a theme like “Stock The Bar” or “Brides and BBQ.” Gifts can be bottles of their favorite adult beverages, grilling accessories, or other fun things. This will keep the men from getting super bored and ensure everyone will have a great time.

We hope these tips have helped you on your quest to plan a great bridal shower. Just remember to have fun with it and not to stress out. If you’re searching for a great wedding caterer, keep reading to see how Catering by Design can help.
