    Default Bfidal shower

    My daughter is getting married in May, and being that her friends do not live near us, I would like to throw her a shower. I was told that that is tacky for a family memeber to throw a shower, but she really wants a shower, so I'm giving her one anyways. It will be a small wedding, so the shower will be small also. I am looking for low cost decorating ideas and gifts for the guests. Any help and input is appreciated.

    Thank you,
    Melissa

    It is not tacky for you to through the shower! Do it, have fun.

    Why should you and your daughter miss out because of some false

    etiqeutte rules. Have a great time!!!!



    Will it be only women at the shower? I go to my local dollar store

    and Big Lots and create small gift bags. I had a get together

    yesterday and found these cute spring buckets for a $1.50 each, I

    filled them with 2 votives, a special treat, a mini lip gloss, a

    bath item and a hand written card.



    You can do candies, candles even bookmarks with the couples picture

    on it with a "save the date" for the weeding (my friend did this).

    Check out your local Kinkos for some other unique ideas.

    I think that you throwing the shower is just fine. All the "rules" from

    long ago don't normally apply anymore. As to budget saving ideas... Why

    don't you decorate with something that she "needs" and that way she can then

    have a head start on those items. I went to one not long ago that used all

    the pots and pans for the bride as the centerpieces and such, they put

    flowers in them and it was really neat. Another thing they did was make

    flowers out of dish clothes and such, very creative. As to party favors,

    depending on the theme, but how about a dish towel, wooden spoon and some

    nice recipe cards for each person, all tied with a pretty bow? If everyone

    is younger how about a nice set of bath gel and a poofy ball thing. You can

    get both at Big Lots in good name brands and those are always popular with

    most people.

    <SPAN class="560112714-12032007">Talk to her wedding party girls. See if it would be OK with them to have the shower at your place and organize it, but they host it (and just have to show up). Then it won't be considered 'tacky' <grin>.
    <SPAN class="560112714-12032007">I had my baby shower at my house (but it was hosted and organized by my sisters who live out of town).

    It is NOT tacky for you to give your daughter a bridal shower,

    especially if she wants one. If it is tacky for family members to

    give bridal showers then I've gone to a lot of "tacky" bridals

    showers in the last 20 years -- most of the ones I've gone to HAVE

    been hosted by family members.

    Do it for your daughter & don't worry about what others will say.

    Give her some good memories & take a few pictures.

    There hasn't really been much decorating at the ones I've been to,

    just using what the house it was being held at was decorated with.

    Soem memorable ones have included games with the bride being asked

    questions about her fiance' and making a white tissue paper dress.

    I had food that was elaborate, food that was simple, and food hat

    was inbetween, food that fir the season, etc.

    There were prizes for the person who'd come the farthest, who got

    the most right in the games -- usually 3 to 4 prizes. The

    gifts/prizes were deicded upon by the hosts of the party -- I really

    liked the gifts that weren't "cutsey" decorations as not everyone

    likes those things. I liked the little gift baskets, like you can

    buy at a $1 store & fill with items while you're there, especially

    having several of a different theme: I've seen one where they had a

    stationary-type basket, a popcorn & movie basket, soaps & body washes

    basket, scrapbooking basket, knitting/crocheting basket, a gardening

    basket, and a few othrs I can't recall, but this is the basic idea.

    Whatever you decide to do, I'm sure your daughter will be happy.

    Good luck with your plans.

    =) Gayle
