1: Plan, Plan, Plan
A bridal shower is not something just thrown together. Invitations, a location, and food/drinks need to be planned out well in advance before the actual event. Don’t be last minute on the party thrown in your best friends honor.
2: Have a theme
Having a theme makes the party guests feel more festive. Although tempting for every party planner, don’t use the same color scheme as the wedding. That’s a special day that deserves it’s own special theme.

Even though it is an exciting time, don’t invite everyone. The party guests should only be people invited to the actual wedding as well.

Games are an easy way to break the ice, especially if the guests are not all acquainted. Just make sure that the games played keep the spotlight on the soon-to-be-bride. Don’t take the focus off of her.
5: Stay calm, cool, and collected
Yes, this party is a big deal, but it’s about her! Don’t lose sight of making this fun and enjoyable for everyone, but mainly her. Have fun and enjoy the party!
