Who is paying

Although there is no strict rule to have a theme for bridal showers, it’s only good to have one. Themes add more vibe, fun, and personality to the party. You can have a Disney princess theme, bridal-tea party theme, etc.

Food and Drinks

Dress code

A bridal shower is not an event to be planned on rigid lines. And, dressing up has no rules until or unless specifically mentioned in the invitations. The guests can dress comfortably and formally if left on their choice.
