There’s no doubt that bridal shower traditions have changed greatly over the years, but some aspects will always be the same. Whether you’re planning a traditional shower or something a little more creative, Her Bridal Favors can help you create the perfect event.
Traditional Bridal Showers
Just because you’re throwing a traditional bridal shower doesn’t mean it has to be generic. Unique invitations, centerpieces, and bridal shower favors can turn an ordinary shower into something your guests will be talking about long after the day has passed. One of the best ways to make in impression is to choose a theme. Thanks to Her Bridal Favors, finding themed wedding accessories for your shower has never been easier.
There are many possibilities for traditional shower themes. Classic themes include the kitchen, the wedding dress and tuxedo, black and white, pink, seasons, fairytales, and gardens. You can find a wide variety of party favors, decorations, and even bridal favors that go with these themes.
The garden theme is one of the most common bridal shower themes because it is so classic and versatile. You can’t go wrong with flowers. Floral centerpieces can be elaborate or simple, and they still look lovely. Calla lilies are more popular than ever, and Her Bridal Favors has a wide selection of Calla Lily Theme Favors. You can fill our Calla Lily Mini Pails with small candies, or you can go with something already beautifully packaged, like the Calla Lily Bouquet Candle Favor.
Flower seeds are traditional wedding favors. Seeds have always represented the ideas of marriage and family. One of the oldest wedding traditions we know of is the passing of the family’s garden seeds to the new couple. You may not have heirloom seeds to pass on to the bride and groom, but you can still carry on this tradition with our Seed Favor Kits or Plantable Wildflower Favors. Guests will be delighted to receive bridal favors they can take home and plant in their gardens.
From couples showers to bridal gatherings at the spa, there are countless modern-day twists on the age-old tradition of throwing a party to shower the bride with gifts. These events are usually less formal than classic showers. The whole point of breaking from tradition is to be creative and have a little fun.
Spa showers are a great way to get everyone together for a little pampering before the wedding. You can host a spa shower at a salon or at a home. Either way, the central theme should be rest and relaxation. For the ultimate girls’ night out spa party, invite guests to bring their pajamas or robes. Spa bridal shower favors can be as simple as scented soaps or as elaborate as a complete bath set in a pretty basket. Our “Showers and Flowers” 3-Piece Bath Gift Sets make great shower favors for a spa party.
If you’re going to honor both the bride and the groom at the shower, prepare to add a few masculine touches to a typically girly event. Leave the flowers and ribbons out and add in some tools to make the groom and groomsmen feel more welcome. Be sure the invitation is gender neutral and clearly states that men and women are invited. When you’re looking for couples shower favors, choose something that both guys and girls will appreciate. Our Personalized Glass Coasters or Etched Drinking Glasses are simple and classic enough for anyone. And if pizza is on the shower menu, the “Slice of Love” Pizza Cutters in miniature pizza boxes would be the perfect touch.
Whatever the theme, traditional or modern, Her Bridal Favors can help you put together a spectacular bridal shower. We’re here to make your job fun and easy.
