The history of the bridal shower dates back to the 16th century when brides who couldn’t afford dowries were ‘showered’ in gifts by relatives and friends, so she may have all that is needed to create her new marital home.
However, in modern times, many couples live together prior to wedding. So the bridal shower is more focused on celebrating the upcoming marriage, having fun with loved ones, passing on wisdom about how to create a marriage that is lasting and playing fun and sometime embarrassing games!
It is the tradition of the maid of honour to plan and organise the bridal shower, however this level of organisation is best suited to whomever is most willing to assume the responsibility.
The bridal shower can be one of three celebrations specifically for the bride. There is the option to have a kitchen tea or a hen’s party also or you could just roll them all into one!
