A bridal shower is a party for a woman getting married. The bride is celebrated, usually with friends and family. The wedding party, such as the bridesmaids, are often included in the bridal shower. The maid of honor normally heads the planning of the bridal shower.
At bridal showers, the brides are given gifts and presents from the shower attendees. When we say brides we mean brides as a whole, not a group bridal shower party for several brides at a single shower.
Common gifts may include wedding picture frames, glassware, dinnerware and other houseware items. Because a wedding is a new beginning between a bride and a groom, household items are often common gifts offered at the bridal shower since many start out with a new home after the wedding.
Bridal Showers History
In the past, many brides were not wealthy, nor were their families. Often the parents of the bride could barely afford to feed the family, and when the announcement of an engagement was presented by the bride to be, to the parents, they were excited, yet worried. Not enough funds existed to pay for a wedding, and in old times woman were not actively employed either. Then came the bridal shower. A group of woman, or friends & family, would come together to help the bride prepare for the wedding, sometimes offering a wedding dress or small gifts and even money to help the bride to be with the wedding planning..
Bridal Shower Favors
Later in time, bridal shower favors evolved. Bridal shower favors were known in the old days at small decorations and gifts for guests who attend the bridal shower (just as wedding favors are offered to guests for attending the wedding). Bridal shower favors have come a long way from times of old to the present. Today there is a variety of bridal shower favors, from different colors and designs to different styles and themes.
