Twirly Tuesday: Bridal Shower Ideas

Good day Twirly Birdies! Twirly Tuesday’s back! Yipeeee!  We have an interesting post today from a pleasant young lady called Angela Sarpong.  She’s a freelance journalist and currently works for local and international blogs and websites, writing articles on various topics! How cool is that?!  Enjoy this piece from Angela on wedding/bridal shower ideas:

One of the best parts of a wedding surely is the bridal shower, which can turn into an unforgettable moment of friendship and amusement. If you are the one organising it, it’s your chance to show the bride how much you love her and how much she means to you. Indeed, the aim of a wedding shower is to make the bride feel like the star of the night. Now, the question is: how do you make a wedding shower an unforgettable and special one? Don’t panic, here are some ideas for you!

  • Rent a fancy holiday home somewhere nice where you can organise an amazing party for the bride to be. Make sure to get in touch with her high school, work, and family members, etc. so the surprise is extra special! It could be on the seaside, so that you can have a beach party, with special dances on the shore, or a fabulous night celebration under the stars, sipping some bubbly stuff and celebrating away. You could light some big candles and torches, so the atmosphere will be even more magical.


  • If the bride is more of a city party kind of woman, forget about the holiday home and go straight for a club in the heart of the city. Rent it out, or book the privé lounge just for you and your friends and get ready to party like real VIPs. Ask the deejay to play all the bride’s favourite hits and to make a public dedication to her on your behalf. If you want to make it really huge, get to the club on board a limo.  You can rent one and go pick up the bride with it, surprising her and making her feel like a real star since the very beginning of the night.


  • Another super-fun thing to do is to give a theme for the night. You can pick whichever one you think the bride will appreciate the most, from Hollywood and Movie Stars, to colours, or flowers. A great one is the Coco Chanel theme. Inspire yourself to the colours, lines and style of one of the most fashionable and charismatic women ever. Fill the room with pink roses, use a black and white colour code and go as much French as possible. A nice thing you could do is to give a flacon of Chanel Nº5 to each guest at the beginning of the night.
