Thanks to my friend, Leyla, I was inspired to write this post. She had a wedding shower back in October, which happened to be my very first shower. It was a very classy and elegant event, which she executed beautifully!
Your wedding shower is an opportunity to celebrate with your closest family and friends as you prepare for your special day. It’s a time of joy and happiness, so why not make it even more memorable with some unique themes? Here are five fun themes that will leave a lasting impression on all your wedding shower guests.
A fairytale theme is the perfect way to add some whimsy to your wedding shower. You can decorate with shimmering silver and gold accents, use lots of candles, and hang fairy lights in the trees to create a magical atmosphere. To get your guests involved, ask them to dress up as their favourite characters from fairytales such as Cinderella or Snow White. You can also have fun activities like a scavenger hunt or charades based on classic fairy tales.
If you’re looking for an elegant and timeless theme for your wedding shower, why not go for a vintage-inspired affair? You can decorate with old-fashioned furniture pieces such as armchairs and couches, antique china sets, and glassware. Encourage your guests to dress in retro attire from different eras such as the 1940s or 1950s. To really evoke the era, serve classic dishes like sandwiches with cucumber slices or egg salad on white bread (don’t forget the crustless sandwiches!).
Garden Tea Party Theme
Garden tea parties are always a hit at weddings! Use mismatched teacups and saucers for each guest place setting, add fresh flowers to the tablescape, play calming music in the background – these small touches will create an inviting environment perfect for catching up with family and friends. As far as activities go, you can arrange traditional games such as word searches or jigsaw puzzles – but don’t forget to serve plenty of tea!
You could also give out favors like mini succulents or flower seed packets so that they have something to take home after the party ends.
For couples who want something more relaxed than a traditional tea party, why not opt for a tropical theme? Decorate using bright colours like yellows and greens, display large palm leaves around the venue, hang paper lanterns and fake flowers from the ceiling – these decorations will help transport your guests into paradise! To make it even more fun, set up tiki bars where people can mingle over fruity cocktails served in coconut shells. A game of limbo and a hula dance are always great for getting everyone in the spirit!
Finally, if you’re looking for something more casual yet still special enough for your big day – consider hosting a picnic themed wedding shower. Set up blankets in an outdoor area (preferably somewhere shaded) along with pillows or cushions so that everyone can lounge around in comfort while enjoying good food and conversation. For added fun you could even organize some lawn games like badminton or croquet! Don’t forget about serving some tasty treats that go well with picnics such as finger sandwiches and scones with clotted cream – yum!
There are many ways to make your wedding shower truly memorable – from whimsical fairytale themes to tropical tiki bars! Whether you choose one of these ideas or come up with something unique of your own – be sure it reflects both you and your partner’s personalities so that all of your guests feel welcomed into this special celebration of love!
