Bridal Shower Favors And Planning Ahead

Dec 27, 2007
When planning a bridal shower there are many things you will need to consider to ensure this special day is a successful one. From the party guests, to the congratulation cake, from the flowers, to the theme, to the dinner menu and the seating of your guests, these are just a few things you will need to prepare for your bridal shower. Another important factor that you will need to consider are bridal shower favors.

Bridal shower favors come in all shapes and sizes. Regardless if they are bigger than a bread box or as small as a popcorn kernel, it is really not the size that matters, what really matter's is that the favor comes from the heart to let your family and friends know how much you care and appreciate the fact that they have all come together to celebrate the unity of marriage.

So when deciding on the perfect bridal shower favor here are some of the things you must consider. What exactly do I want to express to my friends and family for sharing my special day with me? When I do decide on the perfect bridal shower favor should I have them personalized? Should I go shopping and buy a bridal shower favor from my favorite online wedding boutique, or should I buy the supplies and make these favors myself?

Once you have decided on which direction you want to go, you then need to decide on what is your budget that you can afford on the shower favors. When this is all in order it is now time to choose your favors. If you cannot afford to offer your reception guests expensive shower favors there are many favors out there that are very reasonably priced and sure to make your guests happy. Just be sure that the shower favors are thoughtful, useful and most importantly will make your guest appreciate and remember the special day.

When shopping for bridal shower favors keep in mind that they should be practical and serve many purposes. Bridal shower favors to consider that would be classified as useful would be salt and pepper shakers, wine bottle stoppers, compact heart mirrors, bookmarks, love photo coasters and picture frames and a beautiful Calla Lily spreader. There are much more options that you can choose from but these are just a few examples from our experience that reception guests like to keep around the house.

More often than not a bridal shower is a once in a lifetime event. Proper planning plays a big role to ensure that your bridal shower becomes a very memorable occasion. To give you better ideas on picking your personal bridal shower for your guests, it is a good idea to shop around with a friend. Things like going to the mall to a gift shop and see what they have to offer. Or a more specialized store like a keepsake gift shop, this will give you great ideas on bridal shower favors.

Just remember to plan ahead early enough so this way you can be well prepared for your bridal shower.
