Bridal Shower Checklist
Bridal Shower Checklist by Trish Burrell
Having a bridal shower checklist can relieve stress, keeping you on track and organized. So, if you’re the one planning the bridal shower, here are some important tips to keep in mind:
•Make a guest list with each person’s name, address, phone number, and email address.
•Have a plan in place to get the guest of honor to the party.
•Have directions to the shower written down. If someone needs help at the last minute, you will be ready with a quick reply.
•Appoint a person to greet the guests, and someone to tell them where to park.
•Consider using name tags, if many guests will be meeting for the first time.
•Make a list of all bridal shower decorations. If you need help with them, ask ahead of time. If your location allows, set it up the night before.
•Have plates, cups, napkins and utensils ready.
•Assign someone to oversee the menu, and refill snacks, buffet items, etc.
•Select music to complement your theme.
•Ask someone to take pictures. Have disposable cameras available, for guests to take candid shots.
•Have all items ready for games: paper, pencils, cards, etc.
•A gift helper to write down each gift, and who gave it.
•Someone appointed to give out the favors as guests are leaving, and to thank them for coming.
A bridal shower is a memorable event to be enjoyed by all, including the hostess. Having a list and checking off the items ahead of time will help this party run smoothly.
