A bridal shower can be defined as a gift-giving party held for a bride-to-be in anticipation of her wedding day. The tradition originated back in the 1890s and is today a very big part of the overall wedding celebration. There are a great amount of details that go into planning a bridal shower. The major components of a bridal shower consist of determining what time of the day the party will be held, the amount of guests that will be attending the part, what type of activities or entertainment will provided, and last but not least, what will the menu consist of.

With all of the time and effort that you will be putting into your bridal shower, you will most likely not have the spare time to prepare and serve all of the food, not to mention clean up after everyone has finished their meals.

To assist you on planning your bridal shower, we have compiled a checklist of some of the most important components you should consider during the planning stages. In order for your bridal party to be a success, it is important to make the following preparations.

Determine a location and select a date: Bridal showers are typically scheduled approximately two weeks to two months before the wedding date. The earlier you determine your location and schedule the date, the better it will be for your guests who will be attending.

Create your guest-list and send out invitations: When you are creating your guests-list, you should consult with the venue or the host to determine what the suitable amount of guests that can be accommodated for the party. Your invitations should be sent out 2-3 months in advance. As a courtesy, you should contact any guests who may be potentially traveling long distances in order to attend.

Determine your menu and hire a catering company if necessary. If you are planning on hosting a large group of guests for your bridal shower, a great option would be to hire a Connecticut bridal party catering company to provide beverage, food, and cleanup services.
