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.
Lingerie Shower: For the bride who has everything for the home, a lingerie shower treats her to everything she might want for the more personal side of her marriage. Keeping the shower favors personal, as well, they might include: lip balm; body lotion; perfume bottle.
