If you’re planning a bridal shower, consider throwing the event within about three weeks to three months prior to the wedding day.

Bridal Shower Decorations and Ideas

Floral or Balloon Archway for Photos

Collect images of all your close family and friends at your bridal party. A great way to make sure everyone snaps a photo is to set up a great background for them to use. A balloon arch or floral arch is a beautiful and simple way to do it. Consider getting a polaroid camera to get hard copies of all the photos that you can put into an album. 

Be Inspired By Your Love Story

Your bridal shower is a great opportunity to really share your love story through photos and momentos. Create a display with photos of travel, outings with family and friends, special occasions, and milestones that led up to the moment. Of course, you can’t forget to include photos from the engagement. 

Get Creative With Your Sweets

Have some fun with your sweets table! At your bridal shower party, consider serving a variety of small desserts like chocolates, cake pops, mini cupcakes, cookies, and candies. Decorate the table by using tiered dessert displays and trays. You can even further personalize it by adding some flowers or small plants, candles, or photos. 

Make Use of Your Floral Centerpieces

Instead of planning games at the bridal shower, build your own floral arrangements! Use a variety of long stem flowers in a big vase as the centerpiece of your table and supply each guest with a small vase. Guests can use the flowers to create their own arrangements to bring home as a gift. You could even make flower crowns instead of arrangements! 

Pick a Theme

It can be really fun to pick a specific theme for your bridal shower, and don’t be afraid to get creative! A few ideas for bridal party themes include, a fancy garden party, bougie brunch, casual backyard party, or bohemian chic. Be sure the bride’s personality really shines through no matter the theme that’s chosen!
