Throwing a bridal shower for the bride-to-be may seem like a challenge, but it doesn’t have to be. Here’s an easy checklist to help you keep on track:
Talk to the bride: It really does start off that simple. Where does she want the shower? Will it be co-ed or does the bride want to keep things between the girls? Keep the idea of a themed shower in mind!
Set the date: Make sure to chat with the bride and other bridesmaids to make sure the date works for everyone’s schedule – we all know how busy life can get.
Create a guest list: Try to keep the guest list as small or as large as the bride is comfortable with.
Send out save the dates: Keep in mind that the sooner you send them the easier it will be for guests to make sure they are available.
Establish a budget: Discuss it with the bridesmaids, make sure everything is clear and it works for everyone.
Send Invitations: These can be sent as early as a month in advance. Be sure to put down information on registries, theme, gift giving procedure etc.
Confirmations: A week in advance make sure to have everything else confirmed. These include; reservations, deliveries, RSVPS etc.
