Bridal showers are the ultimate way to honor the bride and her new life to come. Gone are the days of cliché themes and cheesy games. Throw a bridal shower like a party pro, with these tips from wedding planner and Weddingstar Ambassador, Leona Morelock.
When you know the bride’s favourite color, incorporate it everywhere. From food and decorations to favors and napkins, completely color her day her way.
Does she have a signature drink planned for her big day? The shower is a perfect opportunity to do a little taste testing!

There are no rules that say the shower has to take place mid-afternoon. Why not do brunch at 11am and serve an eye opener such as a Bloody Mary in a fancy goblet? Very Carrie Bradshaw don’t you think?
Include an activity that really speaks to your bride-to-be’s interest. Bring in an expert for wine and cheese tasting, or perhaps a perfumer to help create her own signature fragrance.

Gifts that Fit:
Shower the bride with gifts that are in sync with her personal sense of style. Whether heirloom inspired or cosmopolitan chic, she will love the very personalized touches.
Create a secret garden complete with lacy parasols for an outdoor lunch that includes setting the table with the “good china.”

Not into cocktails? Offer your guests an assortment of loose-leaf teas for taste testing, and then provide cute monogrammed bags to pack up a portion of their favorite flavor. A sweet take home favour you know they will love.
