Bridal Shower Tips – Pretty in Pink, Black & White

It’s hard to believe, but warm spring weather is on its way. And with that comes bridal shower season! We love this modern pink, black and white bridal shower originally featured on 100 Layer Cake. It’s fresh, flirty, and perfect for spring. Styled by Charlie Juliet, Christina D’Asaro Design, and Hanalulu Co., this bright and preppy shower is stunning. We’ve put together some easy bridal shower tips so that you too can host an affair as elegant as this one.

1. Send Guests Invitations That Match the Bridal Shower Theme

Choose a theme early on so that you can coordinate the invitations to match. Framed copies of the invitation also make a great keepsake to give to the bride-to-be.

5. Create a Signature Cocktail

A signature cocktail designed with the bride’s favorite drinks in mind is a simple way to personalize the event. It also provides a fun excuse to play bartender and experiment with different concoctions before the bridal shower.

No bridal shower is complete without something delicious to munch on. A dessert table is a fun way to display a variety of sweets for all of your guests to sample.
