The Best Tips of Advice for an Unforgettable, Yet Budget-Friendly Bridal Shower
Traditionally, the bridal shower is thrown by one of the bride’s closest friends or relatives (typically, her Maid of Honor, her sister, or her mother). Because this is supposed to be a party thrown for the bride, it’s customary that the expenses are covered by the ladies planning the event (i.e. close family members and bridesmaids).
What do you do when you know the bride’s friends don’t have a lot of money to spend, but still want to offer her a truly amazing experience?
Well, there are a lot of things you can do to lower the cost of a bridal shower and still create something really nice – and following, we have gathered some of the very best tips of advice connected to this. Read on and find out more.
Plan it at home. Some Maids of Honor prefer renting a special space for the bridal shower, but the truth is that this is a rather intimate event, so planning it at home is more than appropriate. Not only will it help you save a lot of money, but it will also create a comforting, homey effect everyone will love.
Get free entertainment…online. You wouldn’t believe the amount of fun bridal shower games available online! They’re there, and you just have to print out the ones that are most appealing to you – and yes, they will provide everyone with a healthy dose of fun, creating great memories!
Cook the food at home. You don’t have to take on this task alone – everyone can pitch in. For instance, you could make this a potluck party where everyone brings something they cooked at home. Those delicious cookies the mother of the bride makes and that really amazing salad the bride’s work colleague can pull off like nobody else? Well, these foods will cost less AND they will make everything more unique, so it’s really a win-win situation.
Include a signature cocktail. Learn how to make an excellent cocktail from a YouTube video and include it in the bridal shower – it will add a dash of originality and sophistication to the entire affair, making it feel really great for everyone involved (you, the bride, the guests, and so on).
