The concept of the bridal shower originated about years ago. According to wedding lore, a Dutch woman's Dad refused to give her a dowry because he did not care for her choice in mates so all the women folk in the village got together and showered her with gifts so she could marry the man she loved. Obviously, years ago, and even 30 years ago, a bride needed lots of household items to get her marriage off to a good start.
Planning an unforgettable bridal shower is no ordinary feat. Ultimately, if you're planning a bridal shower, you're really preparing for a mini-wedding; so many of the same decisions that go into planning the main event actually apply when putting together this pre-wedding party. You can start with the essentials the location, for one or head straight to your favorite detail as long as your overall idea has given the bulk of the party shape and direction.
It could also work for anyone who'd rather not be the center of attention at a gift-giving extravaganza. Let wherever you're headed on your postwedding trip inspire the festivities. Enroll in art school with a painting, drawing or sculpture class.

Throwing a wedding shower for a previously married couple may seem tricky. After all, they probably already have established homes and plenty of stuff, and the party ideas that work for young brides and grooms seem a bit silly the second or even third time around. The key is to truly celebrate the couple, rather than getting hung up on old-fashioned shower traditions and unspoken rules about gifts.
An event with decades of history and tradition behind it, everyone worries about the same sorts of things when it comes to wedding showers: how are they supposed to go? Do I have to do it that way? And most importantly, does everyone have to watch me open gifts for hours straight? Photo Credit Studio 83 Wedding Photography.
