Top 6 Creative Ideas to Treat a Bride-To-Be June 25 2014, 0 Comments

Ideally, a bride-to-be will experience only one bridal shower in her lifetime. The person who organizes this shower wants to try and make this a special event that will be remembered the rest of the bride's life. One way to do that is to make the shower unique and take into consideration the bride's personality. A bridal shower favor that fits her personality will have guests talking about the shower for a long time.

Here are 6 ideas for a creative bridal shower that would be memorable for her:

  1. Create a DIY candy bar. Fill pretty glasses of different shapes and sizes with penny candy and provide small jars for guests to fill with their choice of candies. This bridal shower favor will bring a nostalgic note to the festivities.

  2. Create balloon picture holders. Fill balloons with helium and tie a photograph of the bride throughout her life to each balloon with a ribbon. Let the balloons float above the table where everyone can see the photos.

  3. Have someone teach a skill. Instead of the traditional male dancer, have a hula dancer give hula lessons or a caricature artist create pictures of each of the guests.

  4. Mad-lib wedding vows. Take the idea of the old mad-lib games and have each guest fill out spaces then read the hilarious resulting vows out loud.

  5. Cake-in-a-jar favors. Forego the large cake in favor of individual cakes-in-a-jar favors for the guests. Tie a ribbon around the top and attach a pretty miniature fork to each jar.

  6. Honor the bride's favorite charity. If the bride is into animal welfare, plan a day for guests to volunteer at the local animal shelter. If she likes helping the hungry, make a day for all the guests to volunteer at a local soup kitchen or food bank.
