If all the items on the bridal registry
have been purchased and you’ve got your own personal gift,
you may think there’s still something that needs to be given
to the bride. Why not a bridal shower wishing well? What’s
this? A bridal shower wishing well includes all the gifts that couldn’t
be listed on the registry in the first place. It’s easy to
do and pull off.
How To Pull Off A Bridal Shower Wishing Well
To pull it off, you’ll need to ask the guests to bring a small
inexpensive extra gift for the well. These should not have nametags
on them, as they should remain anonymous. These gifts will ensure
that the bride and groom will have most, not all, of the gifts they
need to embark on their lives together as man and wife. There is
normally a theme to the wishing well, which just adds to the fun
of the event.
If you plan to do a bridal shower wishing well, make sure guests
know about it ahead of time, preferably on the invitations. This
allows everyone to get involved and join in on the fun. Make sure
to go with a theme such as a kitchen, bed and bath or honeymoon
What To Use For Your Wishing Well
You’ll need a very large container or pot for the extra gifts
to go in as everyone shows up. What you use is up to you but it
should also reflect the theme of the wishing well or theme of the
bridal shower. Size is not all that important; even if you cannot
get the guests to accommodate all their gifts in the container,
they can always be placed around it.
Since, the wishing well will be a focal point of your event, make
sure that you choose a separate area for it. Decorate the area with
items that match the theme. Next, identify the area with a sign.
You can use a poster board and color markers to make a sign that
says, ‘Bride’s Wishing Well’
Be sure you let all the guests know the theme of the wishing well
on the invitations. This will help them to know what secondary gift
Finally, add your gift to the bridal shower wishing well and enjoy
the happiness on the face of the bride.
