If the bride is going to have a beach
wedding then throwing her a beach bridal shower will be the most
appropriate way to celebrate her nuptials. A beach party has it
all; festive spirit, fun, sun and creativity; you can turn it into
an event that people will remember for long. With a little bit of
creativity, meticulous planning and some hard work, you should be
able to put together a lovely beach bridal shower.
There is certainly no lack of ideas for a beach bridal shower. However,
like all other events, it is important to plan your shower ahead
of time. To begin, carefully analyze your budget. If the shower
is a gift, make sure she knows nothing about the real cost behind
After you’ve finalized the budget, begin your thought
process on the food and decorations. Since the shower is a beach
theme, you want to go for decorations that reflect the tropics such
as seashells, white sand, candles, stones and flower leis. All of
these decors will resemble a tropical haven.
When you’re doing the invitations, don’t forget to mention
the attire. The event will be full of tropical sunshine and bare
feet dancing; you need to let your guests know what to expect.
Similarly, the menu also needs to be associated with the theme.
For this party, go for a cool beach themed menu. Seafood dishes,
refreshing cocktails and fresh fruits would make perfect food items.
For a beach bridal shower, it is important that you get the venue
right. With everybody dressed in their beach gear and ready for
some fun in the sun, make sure that the facility has adequate restroom
facilities. If you intend to serve alcohol, find out if it’s
allowed on the property.
If you want your beach party to be more dramatic, don’t forget
to include lots of gifts. The ideal gifts can include everything
from lingerie to household furniture, from a straw hat to a kitchen
On top of the bridal shower gifts, you’ll need to figure something
out for the guests’ party favors. As with everything else,
the favors should match the theme. Shopping for beach themed favors
won’t be difficult since there are several markets that sell
these particular items.
Don’t forget that you can get creative
with them by personalizing them. You could also opt for candles
in the starfish design. With party favors, the bride isn’t
the only one getting a gift. Many of these items can also be used
during the wedding including beach umbrellas, flip flops, beach
bags, sunglasses any other beach related gift.
