Wedding Planning - 3/2/2024

Getting married is one of the most important days in a couples life. Many spend countless hours planning and coordinating with wedding professionals in order to ensure that everything runs smoothly and is scheduled to perfection. Due to this being a big event, couples choose to celebrate prior to the ceremony and reception. Many celebrate by throwing bridal showers and bachelorette parties in order to have guests celebrate what is to come with marriage.

When planning a bridal party or assisting a bride with plans, it is essential to pay attention to budget, create a guest list, and come up with a theme. In this blog written by the bridal show professionals at OK Bride, we will discuss what to do when assisting or planning a bridal shower.

How to assist with a bridal shower:

●Decide on budget: Before choosing a menu or picking a theme, the first thing that needs to be decided upon is a budget. The host typically chooses to spoil the bride with lavish food and excitement. However, before any of this takes place, it is important to come up with a budget and stick to it. ●Set a date: We recommend starting to plan the bridal shower at least six months before the big day and nothing less than four. The bridal shower should take place about two months before the wedding. It is essential to consult with the bride prior, ensuring that the date works out for her as well as family and friends. ●Plan a theme: Once the guest list has been complete and finalized with approval from the bride, the next thing to consider is a theme. Themes can range from something that her and her friends all enjoy together to the theme of the wedding. ●Plan what to eat and stock bar: After a theme is coordinated, it is essential to plan what to eat and keep the bar stocked. Afterall, a party cannot take place without food and beverages. Try planning food around the bride's favorite food as well as her favorite drinks. Dinner can take place at a restaurant as well as having food catered at home. ●Come up with things to do: A party cannot take place without games and fun things to do. This can range from wedding mad libs to guessing trivia questions about the bride. It is important to keep in mind that the bride is the main topic of discussion at this party. Do not plan something that you know the bride will not enjoy.
Getting married promises to be one of the best days of one's life. With this comes many celebrations in order to recognize the bride and celebrate the union that she is forming with her husband. One way that the bride can be celebrated and recognized is by throwing a bridal shower. During the planning process, it is essential to decide on a budget, set a date, plan a theme, and come up with fun things to do. Do you need assistance with the bridal shower planning process?
