Bridal showers originated centuries ago during the days of dowries. When women wanted to marry "unsuitable" husbands, their families refused to provide a dowry, so friends of the couple gathered to pitch in and make up for the lack of a dowry by helping them set up their home. Today, bridal showers are a time to share stories and advice, eat and drink, and pay special attention to the bride.
Beach Theme Shower: If the bride loves the beach, a beach themed shower is perfect for her, setting her up with gifts she can use on her favorite outing. This can be hosted, literally, as a beach party when the weather is good, or with beach themed decorations in someone's home. Perfect party favors might be: sunscreen; beach ball; beach towel.
