- Pyjamas Bridal Shower
Nothing is as intimate as a bridal “sleepover”. Traditionally it takes place in the best lady's house, but if this is not possible any other cozy and conducive free house will do! Take along your sexiest PJs and put together some fantastic activities like games, outrageous music and movies. Shower the bride with great “bed and bath” gifts, sexy lingerie to wear during her honeymoon, beautiful underwear and naughty ideas to put into practice during their intimate time. This idea is great if the bridal shower is during the cooler season of the year or even a rainy day. It’s also great if you all are on a budget and cannot afford to spend huge amount of money on a shower but still want to have loads of fun. Not only will this be a great idea for a bridal theme, it would forever be on everyone's mind.
- Celebrity Themed Shower
This kind of shower is very exciting and it can be fun to plan and eventually execute. You can make the bride-to-be a movie star for just one night. Dress her up in a dazzling gown, buy some champagne and order a nice car, you can borrow a friend's car too. And then, the bridesmaids and other guests can celebrate this amazing night for your girlfriend in style! Of course this option is a little more expensive, but if you can afford it, it’s a guaranteed crazy special night! The best idea is to dress up the bride as her favorite movie star or Celebrity.
- Ankara Themed Bridal Shower
This bridal theme is fun, beautiful and stress-free. The perfect Ankara would make this shower successful or contribute to its failure, so it is important to get a great fabric. The participants in the shower get at least 2 yard each of the material. They are either mandated to make a specific style(like a top and bum short) or they can make anything they like. The bride too gets to wear a dress made from the beautiful Ankara. This bridal theme promises great photos and everlasting memories.
- Cinderella Inspired Theme
Yes! This can definitely be done. Apart from the fact that every girl wants to be a fairy tale princess, it is super fun. The success of this theme is hinged on the costume (dress, makeup and jewelry) The bride is supposed to be dressed up in very beautiful evening gown, hair nicely packed and with the appropriate makeup. The bridesmaids and other guests wear nice evening dresses too. If well planned, this is one of the most striking themes ever.
- Vintage Themed Bridal Shower
Who doesn't love vintage? They have been the newest fashion trend in recent times and the vintage is definitely staying. For a bridal shower, the bride and her friends would be decked in very nice vintage tops or dresses, whichever they decide to go with. This would be worn with shirts and sneakers. Hairs nicely packed, makeup done and it's a hit.
