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.
There are some items that are classic favorites for party favors, and any of them can be adapted to one of the themes below. These include: cake pops; cupcakes; personalized chocolates; picture frames. You can find any and all of these online or in local bakeries and stores. If you purchase them from a local supplier, you can easily find decorative favor boxes or pouches in craft stores that can be used to create a pretty wrapper for your favors.
