The Bridal Shower
What do you need to know about a bridal shower that can’t be said in a few words.
A bridal shower is filled with incredible possibilities for you to show your friend just how special she is. As the maid of honor you are entrusted with a chance to give her something that will last her the rest of her life. A bridal shower is a party, yes, but it is a once in a lifetime party. One that symbolizes the coming of age just like other milestone celebrations do.
The bridal shower is unique when you look at it from this perspective though because it is part of an undeniably magical time of a young woman’s life. The wedding process is one that spans many different aspects of a couple’s life leading up to the wedding ceremony.
- The engagement party;
- The bridal shower;
- The rehearsal dinner;
- The wedding.
As you can see the bridal shower is tucked neatly between the other chance to celebrate and prepare for the couple’s upcoming wedding.
And that is what the bridal shower is.
It is both a chance to prepare for married life and it is an opportunity to celebrate the bride as well as the wedding that is quickly coming up.

And damask invitations will do just that.
One of the things that a damask pattern lends itself to is the vintage bridal shower or tea party. For those of you who don’t know this was one of the more common styles of shower since it was actually focused on the company. This was often an informal celebration, though it was also used for formal affairs as well. It is a chance for women to gather together and have a visit. The company plays a big role in any bridal shower and the more you are able to create a chance for people to visit the better.
When you attempt to shape the afternoon you want to build up a warm atmosphere that is a true joy to attend. There are a lot of reasons that a tea party will be just the thing that does that.
Once you understand the wedding shower, taking it for what it is, a milestone in a young woman’s life you will see the importance it has. We all have various moments in our lives where O want things to go a specific way, to be able to make the bridal shower go the way the bride-to-be wants is an important step in making it a real success. One way to do that is to take pointers from celebrations that were successful in doing that very thing. A tea party bridal shower already comes with more than enough chances for you to use damask. Many of the most basic items you need will already come with a damask print. It isn’t much of a stretch to imagine being able to find most of the items you will need for the shower at your local Walmart. I could probably spend about twenty minutes shopping and have everything that I needed for the celebration. And when you look around you will be surprised how creative you can get with a vintage tea party shower.
One of the good things about hosting a shower like this is that you have a lot of room to work. You can shape the celebration in a number of different ways so that you can get the most out of your chance to shower her with love and support.
There are a few things that tea parties do not lend themselves to and it is worth noting they are generally a smaller intimate affair. That isn’t to say that they do not lend themselves to accommodating a number of guests but you will need to find a nice balance to make things work out the way that you want. Often times it is more convenient to take the idea of a tea party shower and move it into the direction of a brunch. When you do that you can find alternatives that will let you host more guests.
One option that I think is good for this is to host at a local restaurant. Many of the nicer establishments serve brunch and you can work together with them for an ideal solution that may be more affordable than hosting it at home.
Of course this does not lend itself to the same amount of decorating options as one that you host at home but there are ways to work the damask into the shower.
If you want an easy bridal shower then you will be on the right track.
There are a lot of ways you can make her day memorable.
It is one of those landmark that lays along the road to marital bliss.
