When to Have the Bridal Shower: A bridal shower can be held anywhere from six months to a week before a wedding. If many guests are traveling from out of town, it may make sense to have it closer to the wedding so they can attend. Otherwise, four to eight weeks before the wedding is a good rule of thumb: it adds just enough anticipation, without creating more stress for the bride. Any time of day is acceptable for a bridal shower. Many bridal showers are held during the afternoon or early evening as a luncheon or dinner party. Brunch bridal showers are not uncommon either.
Games and activities __ Feel free to go wild here, from tarot readings, to make your own perfume, to group crafting. Decor __ Protea centerpieces! Tissue paper garlands! Plastic animal toys spray painted gold! The world and Pinterest are your oyster right now. Food __ DIY or catered? Elegant or low_brow? Finger foods or full_on feast? Drinks __ Usually booze is on hand, but you do you. Brunch cocktails are fun, but so is a range of kombuchas and artisan sodas.
