MAKE A STATEMENT WITH CHIC BRIDAL SHOWER DECORATIONS

No matter whether you are hosting a backyard tea party or a boozy brunch, Minted has a wide assortment of bridal shower decorations that will add a splash of color and prestige to your event. Personalize bunting banners with custom images, sprinkle colorful table confetti across tabletops, and provide each guest with themed wine glass tags to mark their stemware. We are confident you will find some beautiful bridal shower decor that amplifies your pre-wedding affair.

UNDERSTAND YOUR AUDIENCE: BRIDAL SHOWER VS. BACHELORETTE PARTY

Arguably the two biggest parties thrown for the bride leading up to her wedding date are the bridal shower and the bachelorette party. It is important to understand how each one differs in theme, mood, and guests in attendance. Showers are typically held during the daytime, with brunch as the most popular option for the celebration. Bachelorette parties typically get started in the evening and are often more lively, include dancing, social activities, and celebrating with your closest network of friends. While bachelorette parties can last a full weekend, bridal showers typically last a few hours. Bridal showers are usually hosted by the bridesmaids or the bride’s mother and mother-in-law, but modern showers don’t always follow those guidelines. The bride and groom may opt for a co-ed shower and lend a hand in planning the festivities.

Whether you decide to go the traditional or modern party-planning route, your bridal shower is a time for connecting with friends and family such as close colleagues, cousins, grandparents, and those who are not necessarily in the wedding party but play an important role in your life. Having a better understanding of your guest list and shower location will help you coordinate appropriate bridal shower decor.

POSSIBLE PARTY THEMES

Some bridal shower ideas include high tea, at-home manicure appointments, or a decadent brunch at your favorite local restaurant. Whatever you choose, your event should be an opportunity for you and your guests to connect, share stories, and enjoy each other’s company. Create the perfect bridal shower by choosing decor and supplies that reflect your personal aesthetic. Minted’s bridal shower decorations can be customized and mixed and matched to create the perfect look and feel for your event. Here are just a few fun themes to consider:

  • Tea party: Invite guests to wear their decorative florals, sunhats, and pastel dresses to clink miniature teacups in honor of the bride-to-be. Serve tiny sandwiches, macarons, petite pastries, tea, and mimosas.
  • Rose all day: Dress in your very best pink and blush-colored outfits and share some bubbly with your closest friends! Have some flower centerpieces that are made up of colorful roses that guests can take home with them when the party concludes.
  • Self-care spa day: At-home manicures and pedicures are relaxing and the perfect opportunity to unwind and get pampered before the wedding madness ramps up.
  • Pajama party: Take a page out of your middle school and high school playbook. Host a mid-day pajama party. Silk pajamas, scrunchies, delicious brunch food, and sleepover games are a fun way to unwind with friends and family. You could even theme a few bridal shower games around music, movies, or trends that would have been popular when the bride was in her school years.
  • Backyard barbecue: A simple barbecue at home or at a beautiful outdoor location is a fun and budget-friendly way to celebrate with your friends and family. Chalkboard signage keeps decor casual and down to earth.
  • Work hard, play hard: Schedule a private group fitness class. Work out then celebrate with food and drinks after! Yoga, Zumba, a spin class, or a scenic hike are all fun ways to get moving with the people you love.

Make your shopping experience easier by using our website filters to search for bridal shower decor based on style or color theme. We have decor that aligns perfectly with a formal, classical, or modern affair. Take a look below at just some of the items we offer to enhance the look of your hosted event.

  • Bunting banners: A bunting banner is a perfect way to convey a special message at your bridal shower. They are larger than our garlands and feature individual 6” x 8” flags that are highly customizable. Gorgeous materials and beautiful lettering can be edited to display your new last name, “congratulations,” or any other message you want to share with your guests. Minted bunting banners also come in luxe metallic glitter finishes. Pair shiny gold circles and triangles with pastels, marbled patterns, or florals to craft the perfect party atmosphere. Personalize your custom bunting banner flags with pictures of the wedding couple. Another creative idea is to include wedding hashtags on the flags so others can share in the fun of the bridal shower. The bunting banner comes with 25 yards of twine to hang the personalized flags from.
  • Garlands: Minted garlands are smaller than bunting banners and vary in length. Twine or gold string is included with your garland so it can be strung along gift tables, entryways, a dessert table, or a bar.
  • Tabletop decor: Table signs and name tags have a unique charm that can bring instant class to any hosted affair. Use the signage to clue guests in on menu items, drink choices, or wedding hashtags to use when posting photographs to social media. Decorate tables further with customized table runners available in four different sizes. Add an assortment of table confetti made up of 18 different pieces of decorative paper sized and patterned differently. Creative bridal shower table decorations are an easy way to dress a party theme up.
  • Party signage: Direct your guests to the right location with custom party signs. These signs measure 17” x 11” and are printed on our smooth signature paper. Use our easy-to-use tools to adjust the text printed on each sign. Party signs can be used to direct guests to a certain dining hall reserved at a restaurant, steer guests toward a backyard setting rather than a front door entrance, or can even be incorporated as fun props at a photo booth.
  • Stickers: Who doesn’t like a good sticker? We provide an assortment of patterned stickers that can be used to seal a goodie bag or bridal shower favor. Additional uses for the stickers could include decorating paper cups, flower vases, or paper worksheets that may be used for various bridal shower games.
  • Party accessories: Get ready to pop some bottles! Coordinating wineglass tags help guests keep track of their drinks as they socialize at your party. Striped paper straws are a fun addition to any drink on the menu. Round out your party planning with unique square paper plates and paper cocktail napkins. The napkins feature gorgeous designs that will work with any theme you choose.
  • Party invitations: Gather your guests together with beautiful bridal shower invitations. An invitation will allow you to share all the details of your event in style while also hinting at the party theme. Match your bridal shower invites to the rest of the party decor for a gorgeous cohesive presentation.

Picking a small party favor that ties in with your theme is a sweet way to show your appreciation to your guests. Add party favor boxes or translucent favor bags to your order and fill them with sweet treats or small keepsakes to commemorate your bridal shower. Your guests will love the elegant final touch!

BRIDAL SHOWER FAQs

Who plans/hosts the bridal shower? Traditionally, bridal showers are planned by the bridal party or close family and friends of the bride. Some couples opt to buck tradition and host their own showers.

Who do you invite to a bridal shower? While bachelorette parties tend to be reserved for the closest friends of the bride (and traditionally friends in the same peer/age group), a bridal shower tends to be a little more inclusive of extended friends and family outside the immediate bridal party. Invites may be extended to grandparents, relatives, and even close coworkers. Some couples opt for co-ed celebrations that bring the bride and groom’s nearest and dearest together. No matter what you choose, be sure to invite the people you want to celebrate your love with.

How soon before the wedding does the party take place? Timing has a lot to do with when party organizers may be able to host your party, but usually a bridal shower will occur between 2 weeks and 8 weeks before the wedding.
