Who throws a bridal shower for the bride?
Traditionally, a bridal shower is given by the maid of honor. It’s completely acceptable, however, for any number of people to take on the responsibility: family, friends, or even co-workers. Depending upon the size and formality of the shower, the costs may be covered by the host or any number of bridesmaids and other attendants. Although oftentimes a bridal shower is intended to be a surprise, it can be nice to include the bride in the planning process: she’ll be able to help with things like creating a registry and deciding on a theme.
When should a bridal shower be given?
Anytime following the engagement is a good time for a bridal shower. Usually, showers are held anywhere from six months to the week before the wedding. Work with the guests to determine the best date for the majority of attendees. Bridal showers can also be held anytime during the day – brunch, luncheon, and dinner party showers are all equally popular.
Who’s invited to a bridal shower?
Those on a bridal shower guest list usually include female relatives of both the bride and groom, the bride’s close friends, and all the women in the wedding party. Just make sure that anyone invited to the shower is also invited to the wedding. And don’t forget to invite the bride!
A bridal shower is a joyous and celebratory occasion, a time to spend talking, laughing, and sharing stories and advice. Let Butterfields Restaurant take care of all the details for your special event, including decadent hors d’oeuvres and entrees, elegant décor, and warm ambiance and atmosphere.
