The idea behind the ceremony is to help the would-be-couple in setting up their home after the wedding. Gifts like kitchen appliances, household items, electronic appliances etc. are specially chosen for the couple.
The bridesmaid or a close friend is usually the person expected to organize the bridal shower. She plans the party well in advance so that bride’s closest friends, relatives, neighbors, colleagues and all other important people can attend the function. It is important to involve the bride in the planning process. Bride’s friends and relatives who attend the occasion offer lots of gifts to the bride.
These days, the bridal showers are more like a theme party like kitchen shower, spa shower, holiday shower etc. The bridesmaid takes care of all the necessary arrangements for the invited guests like cocktails, snacks, deserts, food, cake, games. The bridal shower party is planned keeping in mind the tastes and preferences of the young bride.
The old women give their blessings & love to the bride and wish her good luck for the future. It is kind of women’s get-together where the elderly women and bride’s best friends give her a lot of tips and share their experiences with her.
The ceremony is close to every bride’s heart as she dreams of this day since childhood so all attempts must be made to choose the perfect gift for her. The present should be a memorable one that she will cherish for the rest of her life.
