Traditional Bridal Shower: If you're hosting a traditional, general household bridal shower, the symbols for this theme, which will become integrated throughout your party plan, are generally romantic and may include bride and groom figures, bells, wedding cakes, hearts, and doves. Choose boxes, curios, or sweets that represent those symbols.
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.
