apart from having a memorable wedding, every woman wants an awesome shower. there are two types of ‘pre-wedding’ celebration, one is a bridal shower which is cool, calm and more sophisticated. Mostly done when the brides friends want something less crazy and wild. it gives an avenue for chit chat, friendly advice, a bit of fun and games and majorly a subtle send forth for the bride.
the other is a bachelorette party which is the WILD KIND. A lot of partying, dancing and nasty things the husband-to-be would definitively not want to see,lol!
i personally recommend a bridal shower instead of a bachelorette party. I feel you do not want to start your marriage with a lot of crazy experiences just prior to your wedding but HEY! that’s my opinion! ITS YOUR DAY SO YOUR WISH!
In planning a shower, which i feel should be the friends'(bride’s friends) responsibility; here are some key things to note.
BUDGET: think of the kind of party you want, number of chics to be present, the food, presents, the venue. when all these is settled next is how to come up with the funds. If someone, an angelic and amazing someone is footing the bill, it makes things easy to be honest but when people are told to contribute it slows down planning and preparation…i am speaking from experience. this usually happens because the brides friends all come together to plan, not all of them may be familiar with each other,so issues like distrust or this is too expensive may arise most times. Its really better if someone foots the bill or offers to cook! Food is one major issue. lol
the venue: a bridal shower does not have to make you break a bank. it can be in the brides house, a friends place, a nearby restaurant or like in the last bridal shower i was involved in,it was at the wedding venue( we lodged at the hotel and had the shower in their restaurant)
the venue would determine the kind of decoration
Food: i dont think eba and ewedu or pounded yam and afang soup would be appropriate for a shower,lol! finger foods, cocktails and light liquids would do!
another part of the food is THE CAKE..here are some lovely cake designs the bride would love!love! love!
Next is A COLOR THEME: it could be the brides favorite color or a color you all decide to wear or maybe the decorations… whatever and however you decide, a color theme gives a pop to the event and makes you all look closer together.
you can make branded tees too!
the decor and theme go hand in hand
make sure you add presents to this,no one wants to win without been rewarded.
the HAPPY BRIDE
WISH all the brides this year A HAPPY UNION.
