30 Bridal Shower Themes: Ideas She Will Love in 2022

A shower is one of the special events leading up to the wedding nuptials where the one or both of the couple will celebrate with close friends–typically in a less formal environment than the rehearsal dinner or the wedding. This party is traditionally hosted by the maid of honor, close friends, or members of the wedding party. If you’re getting ready to shower the couple with love, we’re here to make it a little easier with a list of 30+ unique bridal shower theme ideas.

Backyard

Plan a backyard bridal shower to be held at the home where the bride currently resides. Have all kinds of fun games such as pin the tail on the donkey, blindfold games, and “color wars”. Consider eating a “Wedding Cake” for a fun and delicious touch!

Build-Your-Own Bouquet

During a build-your-own bouquet bridal shower, the bride and her guests build their own bouquet from colorful flowers from the garden, cut from trees, and chosen by the bride. As guests take flowers in their hands before joining the bride and her mom for the walk down the aisle, the bouquet of blooms represents the bond between each of them and the relationship that led the bride to her future husband.

Camp Out

Dress up the bride’s living room with makeshift camping gear, throw a warming dinner inspired by the cuisine the bride adores, play send-ups of classic game shows and talk shows she has enjoyed, and generally give the party a casual and fun, albeit whimsical feel.

Flamingo

A whimsical and fun theme for a bridal shower, the flamingo theme would be great to incorporate if you are holding a tropical theme. The centerpiece can be a flamingo made from sugar that your guests can take home for days of mint juleps, or even better, a flamingo-shaped cake! This theme could also work well as a gender neutral shower, or a more informal set-up.

Garden

A ‘garden bridal shower’ is one taken out in a serene, natural setting. Aim for a garden bridal shower theme that is zen-like backdropped by the harmonious sounds of nature. Make sure to provide your guests with plenty of food while they enjoy the day and the company. This kind of bridal shower would be great for guests who want to find peace and away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
