Traditional & Modern Showers
There are so many choices when it comes to designing the theme for the shower that you may get caught up in the planning and forget what you intended to achieve. That is why we suggest making a plan. The reason for this is simple. It will help you stay focused on what you intend to achieve. When you plan a traditional shower you are building on what others have already done. This gives you plenty of options, but what many hostesses like is that they often act as a safety net. In the event that you make a mistake during your bridal shower planning there is a good chance that you can simply go online and look for the solution.
That isn't always the case when you plan a more daring theme. If that is the type of person your are then a more modern bridal shower idea might be what you want. Even a simple country theme has the potential to get out of hand if you try to incorporate too much.

Picking the right idea for your bridal shower is a good way to help save yourself both. Speaking of which...
Country BBQ Couples Showers
One great way to compliment a country wedding is by hosting a country bridal shower. But here is an easy and often very manageable way to tie the two things together. And that is simply by hosting a couples shower BBQ.
- The reason for this is because BBQs fit well with the country theme
- You can host them at your home, in your backyard, and they are often more affordable because of this
- They are fun, relaxed and delicious ... or is that tasteful?
One thing to remember when you choose to host a themed shower. No matter if it will be a country, spa, or retro is that you will not be able to please everyone. There will be the traditionalist among you who don't like the thought of including men, in the case of the country BBQ shower, etc.. Here is the good news though. You have very little chance to make them happy no matter what you plan. And there is only one person't opinion that really matters at a shower.
