28 Jul Everything You Need to Do Before Your Dream Bridal Shower (CHECKLIST)
So…. you’re getting MARRIED!!!! Congratulations!!!! What next?
Besides the fun in planning the BIG DAY – planning all the celebrations should be equally as fun!! Typically, bridal showers are thrown for the bride and planned by the Bridal Party, but just in case you’re the kind of bride that loves to plan – we’ve put together a checklist for you!
Print it out and use it to mark things off of your list as your bridal shower gets closer and closer. Or maybe your Maid of Honor needs some direction. Send her our way! We’re here to make sure your bridal shower goes off without a hitch on your way to getting hitched 😉
3-6 months out
Pick a date and time – typically bridal showers are planned 3 weeks – 3 months from the big day. Decide on whether you want a brunch style bridal shower in the morning or afternoon snacks and tea style.
Create a budget – make sure you include the big things like venue rental, photographer, decorations, food, drinks, plates, napkins, utensils, photo props, party favors, invitations, flowers, etc)
Book a location (hint: The Glass Room!) – make sure your location is photo worthy, convenient for guests, available on your date, budget friendly, and big enough for your intended party size.
Book a photographer – while phones have come a long way in taking quality photos, hiring a photographer can take the responsibility off of your guests so they can enjoy celebrating you!
Compile a Guest List – decide on the number of guests early on so you don’t waste time or money ordering too much or too little of food, party favors, invitations, etc.
Choose a Theme – there’s SO many to choose from, get creative and implement your personality into it!
While these are the main To-Dos to get out of the way first, we’ve compiled a comprehensive checklist with more things to check off as the day gets closer! Feel free to save it, share it, print it, and use it!
