The concept of a bridal shower was born in the United States of America. Bridal shower is a primary practice in Canada and the United States of America.

The bridesmaid invites guests so that the guests can offer their guests to the bride and groom. The concept of bridal showers originated from the age old dowry system. Earlier when the dowry system prevailed in the society and the father didn't give dowry for his daughter because he didn't agree to the wedding, the friends and other relatives gather and bring gifts for the bride and groom.

Many customs prevail in the society around the world, but the basic concept of it is still the same. Most of the people consider it to be rude, if the relative is organizing the bridal shower party. It is a custom in the society that the guests are to provide gifts for the bride and groom.

The shower usually takes place around six weeks before the wedding and the gifts are generally personalized with name of the bride and groom and the date of the wedding. There are a number of ideas and options for bridal shower favors: the bridal showers have an option, these bridals showers may or may not be themed.

The ideas behind bridal showers may consist of stoppers and bottle openers, bath or soap sets, candles, wine, chocolate and mints, bookmarks, luggage tags which are personalized, compacts, handbag holders.

All these items can be personalized according to the bride's wishes. If someone is throwing a party during October, then the favors should be brown, gorgeous yellow or orange, these give a very festive look. December would look perfect with white, silver and gold favors.

The favors should generally match the theme and the decorations, it gives the occasion a much more authentic and genuine look which increases the overall appearance of the bridal shower party.

For people who want to give their party a very tropical look, they should give a bucket consisting of seashells. If the bride has chosen brown or pink then you can match the bridal shower favors with same colored candles, if the bridal shower party is more of a girl's night out then one should select lingerie's. Pink polka dot purses or stiletto key chains would be perfect for this theme.
