The Best Wedding Showers Are Fun For Everyone In Attendance

By Connor Sullivan

When most girls think of attending a bridal shower, there is a feeling of dread. They imagine sitting around eating lettuce filled sandwiches and drinking lemonade, squawking about their marriages and husbands. Everyone watches the bride open box after box filled with pots, spatulas, and slightly risqu lingerie. Once she has a pastel colored bow-hat fixed on her head, there is a trivia game and everyone goes home. It is all very old-fashioned and not usually all that much fun unless you are the bride’s 84 year old aunt. If you are going to be hosting a wedding shower in the near future, there are a number of things you can do to create a classy event that pleases the senior relatives in attendance, but that does not bore the younger women to tears. You can tune up three major aspects like the menu, the activities, and the guest list for a modern take on an age-old tradition. Create a menu featuring foods that are popular today. If you want to hold a luncheon for the ladies, serve loose leaf tea or organic black tea.

You can incorporate tradition with a modern twist and add finger foods with a modern twist, or choose the bride’s casual favorites and serve bar food or veggies. You can really have fun with the menu and make it a modern occasion.

Next, make sure you schedule activities that are fun for all. You can do the gift opening, but do not make it the main event. Encourage guests to bring a particular type of gift. Many brides today have been living on their own for years before they marry. They will already have towels and crockery, but may need some help with a particular product or event. For instance, there are honeymoon registries that allow guests to give donations to the honeymoon. This way, the trip of their life can be had shortly after their marriage.

Finally, you can modernize your bridal shower by making it co-ed. Many of today’s showers are co-ed. It may be similar to the engagement party, but it is a great way to celebrate the happy couple. No one is excluded and there is fun for everyone. This might be fun if the wedding is going to be very formal.

The shower is a casual chance to celebrate. You could still plan some games, or you could hold something like a backyard barbecue or game night. Determine how many people are invited and plan from there. There are many ways to create a fun, modern bridal shower.

Connor Sullivan and his wife have been buying loose leaf tea in an effort to improve their health with the antioxidants. He and his wife drink organic black tea every morning for breakfast instead of coffee.
