Did you know? The celebration is generally held by the maid of honor and bridesmaids. The shower is intended to be a gift-giving party where guests give gifts for the home or primarily for the bride when the groom is not in attendance.

When to hold? A shower traditionally takes place anywhere from 4-6 weeks before the wedding day. The word “shower” comes from the Victorian times when dowries were going by the wayside because money was scarce or when the father of the bride disapproved of the union and withheld a dowry. The bride's friends and relatives would come to the rescue and "shower" her with the things she would need to start married life.

Bridal showers have become as unique and individualized as the weddings that follow them! A charming, traditional party in which women gather to give the bride a domestic send-off is still quite popular. However, we are also seeing Jack and Jill showers in which both the bride and groom are honored and couples attend. Barbecues are a fun way to pull off a his and hers theme! It's also not uncommon to for the bride to have more than one shower! Perhaps an old-fashioned gathering with grandmothers, aunts and cousins joining dear friends and a second shower thrown by co-workers or closest friends of the couple.
