Our Favorite Bridal Shower Themes Skip to main content

Whoever decided that bridal showers had to be boring luncheons with sub-par food and wine is cancelled! Bridal showers should not be boring, and the food and beverage can be just as amazing as the bride and her party. This is one of the last parties that the bride will attend as an unmarried woman and it is an event that she will remember for the rest of her life. Selecting a theme not only the bride will love, but one that her guests will enjoy, is important. We are here to help you with a list of our favorite bridal shower themes.

Romantic Fairy Tale Theme

Many brides dream of having a romantic fairy tale wedding. Why not carry that theme into the bridal shower? A soft color palette, beautiful florals, and keeping the “Happily Ever After” theme going throughout the event will be a show stopper. Guests can snack on delicious sweets such as French macaroons and petit fours while sipping delicious cocktails to match the event’s theme.

Nautical Theme

If the bride and her soon-to-be spouse love to spend time on the water, a nautical theme is the perfect way to celebrate. Anchors, nautical knots, and a navy blue, white, red and yellow color scheme can carry the theme perfectly. We’ll even give you the first step! Adorn the invitations with some thick rope instead of ribbon to make a bow.

Backyard BBQ

For an at-home and relaxed bridal shower, opt for a backyard BBQ. Throw some burgers, hot dogs, veggie kebabs, and chicken on the grill, crack open a beer or two, and sit back and relax. Lawn games such as cornhole, lawn darts, and horseshoe are great activities to play during the party.

English Tea Party

The lover of all things floral and pretty will absolutely adore an English Tea Party bridal shower. Serve an assortment of specialty teas, finger sandwiches, and delicious sweets to keep this event classy. Use tea canisters to hold floral arrangements and make doggie bags of tea cookies as favors!

The Great Gatsby Theme

The roaring 20s was a time of incredible clothing, signature secret cocktails and feather headbands. All guests that attend can dress in style for the event. Serve up classic Prohibition-era cocktails like sidecars and Gin Rickey’s along with tasty treats.

We hope these ideas helped you select a theme for your bridal shower. We would love to hear about your event where you used one of these themes so contact us today to let us know all about it!
