As with our accessories, ladies have options when it comes to the way they want to celebrate pending nuptials. Depending on the bride’s personality, one or all of these event types might be on the agenda!
Engagement Party – Okay, this one actually involves the groom and family, but it’s the perfect opportunity for the bride to charm the pants off her soon-to-be extended family members.
Bridal Shower – This event is usually hosted by the maid of honor, and it’s a chance for the entire bridal party to come together to celebrate the bride and “shower” her gifts to prepare her for married life.
Bachelorette Party – Also typically hosted by MOH, think Girls Night Out.
Bridesmaid Luncheon – The bride hosts this event to show appreciation for her bridesmaids. If she has decided to give gifts to the bridal party, they’re usually given out during this event.
There is an enormous level of stress that comes with planning for a wedding, so any opportunity to relax, laugh, and enjoy the company of family and friends should not be missed. If you haven’t been thinking about downtime during your wedding planning process, I hope something has been sparked that makes you realize that it’s best for all concerned that you take a break. Your groom will thank you 😉
