Whom to Invite: You want to be absolutely sure that you're not inviting anyone to the shower who isn't invited to the wedding, and the only way to know that is to get the guest list. Ask the bride for a copy, or, if the shower is a surprise, ask her mother or fiancé. Remember to invite close female relatives of both the bride and groom, as well as all the women in the wedding party and the bride's close friends. While bridal showers guests are traditionally all women, today many are coed affairs that celebrate both the bride and groom, known as "Jack and Jill" showers. Before making a decision about whether to include men at the show, discuss the question with the groom_to_be to be sure that he is comfortable attending a shower and to ask for an appropriate male guest list if the answer is "yes."
Spa Theme Shower: This shower theme has become popular in recent years. The bride and her bridal party get together for a day of pampering. This can be done in someone's home, but more commonly the bridal party treats the bride to a day at the spa. Favors for the guests might include: slippers; bath salts; soaps; candles; a manicure set.
