Five Bridal Shower Ideas

Are you in charge of planning a bridal shower? It can get overwhelming, especially with too many chiefs and not enough Indians. Below, I listed a couple of great ideas that any bride-to-be would love and appreciate!

Recipe Book

Clearly, my mom understood that I needed a little help in the kitchen. When she sent out the invitations (made by Michelle at MeeschMosh), she included a recipe card for the guests to fill out. When they came to the shower, they inserted it into this big photo album.

Guess the Kisses 

I had told my mother I didn’t want a ton of games at my shower. I didn’t mind the Bingo, but I besides that, I wanted people to enjoy their time together. My mom poured a ton of Hershey Kisses (all purple… can you sense my theme here?) and asked guests to guess a number of kisses. Whoever was closest to the number, won a prize. She placed it next to the cake, so guests were able to admire the cake as well as win a prize.

Bridal Shower Wine Poem

This is such a cute idea and something great for the whole bridal party to give to the bride-to-be. I gave my sister-in-law a wine poem I found on Pinterest. I also tried to find bottles of wine that corresponded with the tag. Wedding Wine Poem

My blogger bestie, Shauna from Rae of Sparkles, has this fantastic twist on the traditional wine poem. I will definitely use this poem the next time I need to! Check out her ideas here

Cleaning Basket Poem

My bridesmaids knew that I although I am super organized, cleaning is not really my favorite thing to do. They created a basket full of cleaning supplies and read this funny poem to me and my guests. This is also a great idea for a housewarming present! IMG_9935

Words of Wisdom

My mom bought a cute, vintage book from Michael’s and had everyone at my shower add some words of wisdom for me and my husband. I’ve seen this before, usually on an index card, but I really liked the book idea. I keep it in my office and pull it out whenever I feel the need to. 

And if you are looking to give a one-of-a-kind gift to the bride-to-be, check to my Etsy page. I make custom wedding invitation ornaments! It’s a great addition to any wedding gift! 

  • This is a great list! I never would have thought of the recipe idea – which is perfect for a bridal shower I need to start planning.
