Dress Shopping Day
One of the first things on a bride’s to-do list? Find the dress. Odds are you’ll want to bring along some of the key people in your life—your mom, sisters, best friends, and so on. Turn the shopping adventure into a little party, complete with brunch, a blowout or nail appointment, a spa day, or whatever speaks to you. A fun day of pampering pairs perfectly with a day of dress shopping.
A bridal shower opens the celebration to a wider array of family and friends. Typically, bridal showers are daytime affairs that take place either at someone’s home or perhaps at a local restaurant. Be sure to prep your wedding registry well ahead of your bridal shower as gifts are the main thing that set this party apart from the rest. Traditionally, your loved ones will use your bridal shower as an opportunity to—as the name suggests—shower you with gifts. This is their way of sharing in your excitement to be starting a new life with the person you love.
