How to Choose the Perfect Bridal Shower Theme

Choosing the perfect theme for your friends’ bridal shower doesn’t need to be complicated. Keep in mind everything the bride loves and try to choose bridal shower ideas that will bring her joy. We came up with some tips to help you create a bridal shower theme the bride will love!

1. Consider the Bride’s Hobbies

What does the bride love to do? This is a great place to start when you think of a bridal shower theme. If the bride is into hiking, camping, and traveling, a National Park theme is perfect. If the bride loves to read and watch romance movies, a Bridgerton tea party will be so much fun for her. 

2. Think of On-Theme Food/Drink Options

Choose a theme with some built-in food and drink choices. A mediterranean-inspired lemon bridal shower comes with tons of ideas: lemonade, limoncello, pasta salads and more. Petals and prosecco calls for lots of sparkling wine and you could even provide mimosa options. 

3. Use Decor and Colors the Bride Loves

Embrace the bride’s aesthetic to plan the type of party she would plan herself. If her home is decorated in minimalist style, a black and white theme would be perfect for her bridal shower. A maximalist bride would love a garden party covered in multi-colored florals. 

4. Cater to the Demographic of the Guests

If the bride comes from a long line of non-drinkers -- an Aperol Spritz themed party might not be a crowd pleaser. Consider who’s on the guest list as you decide on a theme. If the age of guests ranges from small children to retirees, you may want to go with a more subtle and choose family-friendly activities. If the guest list is mostly the bride's friends, make sure there’s plenty of upbeat bridal shower games and quirky decor.

5. Create Your Own Theme

Don’t feel obligated to stick to a theme that already exists. Take a theme you like and add a custom spin to it that suits the bride’s personality. You could even come up with an entirely new idea, just make sure there are some party supply options that will help you pull off your vision. 

Get Started on an Adorable Bridal Shower

You have a long bridal shower planning to-do list, so get started early. Starting soon means you’ll have less stress at the last minute. Don’t be afraid to ask for help from bridesmaids, friends, and family of the bride. Start by choosing a theme, planning the menu, and ordering anything that needs to be custom-made (like cake or signs).
