Throwing a Bridal Shower: Step One
Creation Of The Guest List
Part of being a good friend of the bride is having super sneaky tactics or Bridal Ideas which can be evolved by possibly an episode of mission impossible or something , lol and if you have herd her talk about some of her closest friends and you would like to see them show up,then one suggestion would be to grab the brides telephone book and call as many of her friends as you can find and as many as you are able to accommodate at your house that works with your bridal budget and try not to be too disappointed if not every one shows up because it will still be fun!
Not including close friends or family and co-workers your not so close friends or second tier friends may not even show up and it’s not unusual because 30 percent usually don’t show up and have attended many of these events in the past where a monetary outlay was involved (getting a gift).Less than half may not show up due to other social commitments.
2nd Step:Bridal Registry
When you send out the invites, always let people know that the couple has registered for gifts so that they don’t get three toasters and four waffle makers! Include a RSVP card or call and make sure that your guest count is accurate
Step 3 on How to Throw a Bridal Shower: Plan the Venue
The size of your budget and guest list will lead you to the decision of weather or not to have an intimate and cozy event at home or a more sophisticated and formal event.Either way the decision will be yours to dwell upon.
The Decision Regarding Choice Of Food: Step four
There are small problems that can be overcome however,but if the guests don’t have assigned dishes to create or bring with them it can be a problem and that is: having more than one of the same dishes .So whether you cook it yourself or ask guests to bring in a dish, try to coordinate things a little and this will help alot.This really is a decision made after the venue is chosen.
Gaming Ideas : Step five
Traditional games can be nice and can be fun or maybe you want to get a little more creative.You can find a myriad of varieties on the web in bridal ideas on shower games. To create a new and creative type of game that has a twist on an old game you may want to gather scrap-booking and paper crafting supplies and ask each guest to make a page in the scrap book letting the bride know how special she is.Once finished, the scrap book can be presented to the bride.
