Themed showers can inspire games, decorations, and cakes specifically tailored to the theme: Naturally, if you're responsible for planning this party you'll think of all the things you can do to make the bride feel loved. But why not let the guests take home a memory of those good feelings by sending them off with a small party favor that will remind them of the day? You can let the theme of your shower inspire the perfect favor for the occasion.
Our Take: If you're one of those people who traditionally takes over the bridal shower duties, assess your boundaries and capabilities. What are your financial (and time and effort) limits? Make your line in the sand and stick to it. Communicate what you can and can't accomplish__to the couple, family, other party members, or anyone else who might fall into unreasonable and over_demanding zones. Enlist help when you need it, whether it's making favors, hunting down RSVPs or doing food prep. And yes, it's probably still best not to invite people that aren't invited to the wedding, because ouch.
