Sponsored with love by WeddingForward

Some bridal showers are big and some bridal showers are small. Some bridal showers only include closest family and some include extended family and friends. And you know what's so great? There's no right or wrong way to do it.

But what I do know, is that it's a time for the bride to sit back, relax and enjoy the ride. This day is celebrating YOU. And even better...you don't even have to plan it! Pretty cool, huh? I mean, you're busy planning your wedding so this is one day to just let it go and let everyone else do the work for you.

Today we will celebrate YOU.

A Pre-Planned Bridal Shower

Sponsored with love, by Wedding Paper Divas
and the BRIDES Influencer Network

Planning a bridal shower isn't always easy, especially if you've never planned one before.

What should the bridal shower invitations say?

What bridal shower games are we supposed to play?

What kind of gifts are given at a bridal shower?

What kind of food should be served at a bridal shower?

...and the list goes on.

For your lucky Maid of Honor, family member or friend who has the honor of hosting the Bridal Shower, it can definitely be an overwhelming task. Of course she wants it to be absolutely perfect but she just doesn't know where to begin!

So much research to do, so little time, and with a limited budget and resources, the planning part doesn't always turn out to be as fun as it should (and could) be.

Of course you will love your shower and appreciate all of her hard work no matter what kind of shower she hosts but I'm making it nice and easy on you.

I've partnered with Wedding Paper Divas and the BRIDES Influencer Network to plan the perfect bridal shower. All you have to do is click "order" and I've done all of the planning for you - from invitations to games to the thank you notes, it's all here and ready to go!

Do you and your bridal shower planning bestie a favor and forward this article along. And I promise, you'll thank us.
