View our guide on Bridal Shower Invitation Etiquette and Wording

  • Start by setting a date and time that works for the majority of the guests and the bride-to-be.

  • Create a guest list and send out invitations.

  • Decide on a theme or color scheme for the shower.


  • A traditional tea party theme with fancy teacups and saucers, and dainty finger sandwiches.

  • A spa day theme with DIY manicures and facials.

  • A kitchen shower theme, with cooking-themed games and a recipe card for the bride-to-be.

  • A wine and cheese theme, with a wine tasting and cheese pairing.

  • A book club theme, with a book exchange for the bride-to-be.

  • A garden party theme, with outdoor games and a DIY flower crown station.


  • Host the shower at the bride-to-be's home.

  • Rent a private room at a restaurant or tea house.

  • Host the shower at a community center or park.

  • Have the shower at a hotel and make a weekend getaway out of it.

Game Ideas:

  • "Advice for the Bride-to-Be" cards, where guests can write down their best advice for the bride-to-be.
