Tangy Garlic Aioli: Cheese, crackers, and fresh veggies are a bridal shower staple, but they can be a bit expected. Jazz them up by serving interesting dips and spreads alongside. This tangy garlic aioli kicks things up a notch, but you could also make a sweet/savory Pineapple Cheese Ball, a green goddess dressing, or a spicy remoulade.
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.
