Traditionally, the bridal shower is a time for the bride to be treated to a special party courtesy of her friends and family, but some modern brides are actually planning their own showers alongside their best friends.
Sometimes a bridal shower might be something grand like a dinner at a banquet hall. Other bridal showers might happen in a backyard, like a little garden party among friends.
Flowers are one feature you’ll want to plan for the bridal shower whether you’re the bride planning her own party, or you’re the bride’s best friend and are looking to surprise her with something fun and beautiful.
Cool and Trendy Flower Ideas
One of the easiest ways to choose flowers for the bridal shower is to think about flowers that match the ceremony. Has the bride chosen to plan a beautiful white wedding? Fill the bridal shower with arrangements of white roses. Or, if the bride is a little less formal in her arrangements, something Boho chic like white daisies are also a beautiful choice for bridal shower flowers.
One fun idea for bridal shower flowers is to let everyone wear them at the party. Seeing a beautiful vase of roses on each table adds some class and elegance to the gathering, but it’s also fun to think about how those roses might look in each guest’s hair.
Consider This: Want a beautiful and unforgettable party favor for the bridal shower? Have each guest make floral garlands to put in another guest’s hair. It’s a beautiful and fun activity for any bridal shower, particularly if you’re not into the silly gags usually featured at bridal showers.
Choosing Flowers for the Shower
There aren’t any particular rules you need to follow for choosing flowers for the bridal shower, but an easy way to choose the right flowers is to think about the location where the shower will be held and choose accordingly.
For example, if you’re holding the bridal shower in a backyard with a garden party theme, you might think about arrangements full of wildflowers and a lively mixture of a half-dozen types of flowers. On the other hand, if the party is to take place indoors in a formal setting, you can never go wrong with classic flowers like roses.
No matter who plans the bridal shower flowers, make sure to make a call in advance to order the flowers so you can make sure the flowers you want are available. Planning is particularly important if you’re looking at a summer wedding and a spring or early summer bridal shower.
