Creative Bridal Shower Themes
While many aspects of a wedding are traditional (and should stay that way, says Mama), there are plenty of wedding elements that change with the times and trends. Lately, Pinterest has been filled with incredible bridal shower themes, and we think this new tradition is something Mama would support. Instead of a prim-and-proper gathering with tea sandwiches and minimal decoration, your bridal shower can be a reflection of your personality and interests. Whether you love to travel, cook, drink coffee, or hit the beach, these party ideas from Pinterest are so much fun. From a Coco Chanel Parisian party to a bubbly brunch with a mimosa bar, you’ll have the trendiest, Pinterest-approved shower of the year. Your dress is perfectly tailored to you—why not your bridal shower? Alert your maid of honor, she's in for a real celebratory planning treat.
If you’re an adventurous world traveler who’s “traveling from Miss to Mrs.,” book a ticket to this travel shower theme.
