Throwing a Bridal Shower: Step One

Creation Of The Guest List

Exercising your Bridal Ideas and tactics are among some of the most exciting and secretive moments leading up to the big day .keeping with the sneaky thing: here's what you do: Grab her telephone book and call all of her closest friends by gathering as many names that you may have herd her throw out in the past or people that you know that she is close to.Do your best to accommodate them based on your house size and budget.If not everyone shows up don't let it bother you it will still be a memorable day.

Research shows, that apart from really close friends, co-workers or family members, only 30 percent of the second tier friends even show up. After all they have played the bridal shower games a gazillion times and there is monetary outlay involved (getting a gift). Everyone has so many social commitments already that assume less than half of the people you invite to actually show up.

2nd Step:Bridal Registry

When you send out the invites, always let people know that the couple has registered for gifts so that they don't get three toasters and four waffle makers! Include a RSVP card or call and make sure that your guest count is accurate

3rd step: Plan The Venue

Depending on the Budget and Size of the guest list, decide if you want to host an intimate, cozy event at home or have a more sophisticated and formal event at a restaurant or club house.

Step 4 on How to Throw a Bridal Shower: Decide on Food

There are small problems that can be overcome however,but if the guests don't have assigned dishes to create or bring with them it can be a problem and that is: having more than one of the same dishes .So whether you cook it yourself or ask guests to bring in a dish, try to coordinate things a little and this will help alot.This really is a decision made after the venue is chosen.

Whipping Up The Games: Step 5

Do you want to stick to the traditional games or do you want to get creative? Search the web and you will be amazed to see the myriad of varieties in shower games. To get a really new game, put a bridal shower twist on a classic. If the bride to be is very creative, gather scrapbooking and paper crafting supplies and ask each guest to make a scrapbook page for her telling her how special she is. Put them all together and gift it to the bride at the shower.
