Bridal Shower


Bridal Shower
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A bridal shower is a party given for a bride before her wedding. Showers are usually coordinated by the bridesmaids, who invite guests to offer gifts for the home of the bride and groom. Because gifts are required of those who attend the shower, it has been considered rude for a relative of the bride to give it.

The custom of the bridal shower is said to have grown out of earlier dowry practices when a poor woman's family might not have the money to provide a dowry for her, or when a father refused to give his daughter her dowry because he did not approve of the marriage. In such situations, friends of the woman would gather together and bring gifts that would compensate for the dowry and allow her to marry the man of her choice.

The earliest use of this sense of the word in print may be in the Grand Rapids Michigan Evening Press 22 June 4, 1904: "The 'shower parties' that through mistaken hospitality the wedded couple are forced to attend..."

This custom is an American one. In other countries gifts are given at the wedding itself or sent to the couple's new home after the event.

Unique Bridal Shower Favor


Unique Bridal Shower Favors

A generic trinket sitting forgotten on the reception table? That's not you. You've found the perfect favor, now you just need to make it scream "Welcome. We're so glad you came." Here are some great ways to create unique bridal shower favors - from party bags to homemade cookies.

1. Attach stickers with your new monogram to each bridal shower favor box/bag. There are lots of great ideas floating around about monograms, but one of the most common is to start with the bride's first initial, follow with the groom's last initial, and finish up with the groom's first initial. This means that Susan Anderson and Brad Palmer would have SPB as their monogram.

2. Print each guest's name on slips of vellum in an elegant computer font. Attach them to each unique bridal shower favor.

3. If you or any of your gal pals have great handwriting, write each guest's name directly onto the favor bag.

4. For homemade bridal shower food favors, print out cards on your computer with your names, the wedding date and the favor recipe.

5. Print out cards on your computer with your names, the wedding date and a favorite quote or line of poetry.

6. Have a calligrapher write a brief note welcoming your guests. Copy the note on squares of pretty paper and attach them to each bridal shower favor box or bag.

7. Order a rubber stamp personalized with a special greeting, favorite quote or unique image you love. Select inks in your wedding colors and stamp all of your place cards and enclosure cards. Stamp each favor box or bag as well.

8. Affix a wax seal imprinted with your new monogram to each unique bridal shower favor box. If you're keeping your maiden name or using a hyphenation that seems too messy for a monogram, think about using your first initials, separated by a line or a dot. So our newlywed couple, Susan Anderson and Brad Palmer would be S~B. If crafts aren't your forte, this may get a little messy.

9. Honor your heritage by printing a quote or proverb in English and in your ancestral tongue on slips of vellum. Attach the slip to each unique bridal shower favor box or bag.

10. Have tiny chocolate bars personalized with your names and wedding date. Attach one bar to each unique bridal shower favor box or bag. Call Regency Candies at (800) 628-2373 for more information.
