One of the events at a wedding that seems to be overlooked is the bridal shower. I spend many hours a week with new brides and rarely is this topic ever brought up. I decided to look them up and see what does a Pinterest bridal shower look like?
Quickly on Pinterest, you can tell bridal showers have turned in to DIY showcases. I saw elaborate backdrops, themed food stations and everything had a personal sign. It was almost as overwhelming as doing a themed wedding search. All of this makes up a beautiful setting, gorgeous to say the least. Except it seems to be missing one thing.
This one thing is what I love about bridal showers. The conversations that happened at bridal showers between mothers, grandmothers, aunts and best friends are some of the most precious moments during this wedding season. This is the time when secrets are shared and advice is given. Some of it may seem outdated but most of it is timeless. You will laugh and maybe even cry a little bit.
So my bit of advice to you going into your bridal shower planning is to make a place for conversation. A small snack, a cuppa t, a and a long sit will fill you up with so much wisdom and advice. You will feel more than prepared when you take that walk down the aisle.
