Planning a wedding shower can be fun and tiring. You want everything to be perfect, right? So it’s important to get started early in the process so that you have enough time to do all of the necessary research to have everything planned out before the big day arrives. It doesn’t matter if you have some wedding shower decorating experience or not. There is no need to stress over making mistakes because you have plenty of time to perfect your wedding shower. This article will help you with wedding ideas for decorations and favors.
If you’re hosting an informal wedding shower, think about giving the happy couple unique shower cards instead of traditional wedding stationary paper gifts. A card written specially for the new couple introduces them to each other in a beautiful and thoughtful way and gives helpful information about the wedding location, guest list, menu and other details. The cards could also contain information on where to mail flowers and other wedding shower gifts. Both the bride and groom can sign the back of the card and it’s easily printed for future use.
Bridal and wedding showers are expected to be done by the maid-of-honor and often involve the bride and groom, but it isn’t necessary to follow this custom if you want to. The bride and groom may register for wedding shower gifts online ahead of time and simply hand deliver the items to the guests. This eliminates any embarrassment from not having any RSVPs (standing in line to receive gifts) and it allows friends and family to easily keep track of who is coming and who hasn’t. If you want to keep the tradition of bride and groom registry etiquette, make sure the event is professionally catered so the guests know what gifts they will be receiving.
It’s not necessary to purchase all the wedding shower gifts yourself. While many brides and grooms do appreciate a gift from their wedding party, it’s not necessary. Ask friends and family members for suggestions or consider searching for a group that specializes in wedding parties, such as a wedding registry service. They can help guide you in selecting wedding shower gifts that fit the theme of the wedding party and make sure that the gifts are appropriate to the style and budget of the wedding party.
When it comes to choosing wedding shower gifts, make sure that you don’t just limit yourself to traditional wedding shower gifts such as candles, chocolates and flowers. You can also choose to personalized wedding shower gift baskets, especially if you have some personalization ideas to insert. If you have the time, this could be a great idea to add some more personal touches to your wedding party gifts and make sure the gifts are truly something that the wedding party will appreciate. The rules for etiquette for wedding shower gifts are pretty simple, so long as you follow them correctly.
First, it’s important to note that wedding shower gifts given during a bridal shower are most often intended to thank the women who helped make the wedding possible. Bridal shower gifts given during a bachelor party or rehearsal dinner aren’t as formal, but they still carry a certain degree of formality. For example, you may find that the best bachelor party gifts are those that come with an alcohol-free cocktail. These are perfect because often the men will be celebrating a good wine wedding shower.
Bridesmaids wedding shower gifts are often given during the bridesmaids’ luncheon or wedding shower. Bridesmaids gifts are meant to show thanks, as well as to reinforce the bond between the bridesmaids and the bride-to-be. In fact, often bridesmaids gifts are given to thank the bridesmaids for working to make the wedding beautiful, whatever their role may be. While it’s not necessary to give formal wedding registry gifts during a bridesmaids luncheon, the bride may choose to include one to let the ladies know how much each maid contributed to the bride’s big day.
When it comes to gifts for the wedding guests, the tradition has long been to give gifts to the wedding party before the guests leave, as a way to say thanks. Today, while this is still very much the norm, sometimes it’s more appropriate to wait until the guests have left, and then giving gifts. It’s always a great idea to keep your bridesmaids and groomsmen involved in the process so that you can give them something special as they leave.
