Bride_to_be shower. Have everything look bride_esque. You can cut your napkins to look like wedding dresses (I used a tutorial similar to THIS ONE and made it look more wedding dress_ish). Have strands of pearls (AKA white beads) strung from lamps and lights, and decorating the table. Decorate with white tulle. Hang her wedding dress on display somewhere at the shower. Make little bride and groom cupcakes.
For an informal, casual shower the host generally picks up all the costs, but for a more elaborate shower the host may talk to the other bridesmaids at the beginning of the planning process and ask them about chipping in or splitting costs. Beyond financial assistance, the host can and should ask the bridesmaids to help plan, set up, decorate, etc.
