Stock_the_Bar Shower: You might call this using a bridal shower as an excuse to drink, but I call it great fun. It's like throwing a cocktail party but with gifts. Put together an awesome playlist and some pitchers of cocktails or perhaps a champagne punch. Of course, you'll also want some chic hors d'oeuvres for nibbling.
Traditionally: Historically, a bridal shower has been an all_gals fete of the elegant, ladylike variety__such as a luncheon, brunch, or tea__that celebrates the bride (with gifts and games) before her wedding day. You pick a theme and a DIY bar (make your own mimosa, waffles, or flower crowns, for example). And everyone gets the bride gifts__usually things from her bridal shower registry to help her start her new home, like kitchenware and linens. (See: Not a bachelorette party.)
