Throwing a Bridal Shower

A few weeks ago, I traveled to Milwaukee celebrate one of my best friend’s bachelorette parties. It was great to see her, celebrate her new life chapter and to dance the night away!

Part of the weekend was to hold a shower for Jenna. I was the ring leader for putting it together with a few more girls. I also put together the welcome bags for the hotel. I know there are a bunch of you out there who are going/having a lot of bridal events, so I thought I’d share how I planned the shower from afar and how to let it go off without a hitch!!

I started with a Pintrest-type, inspiration board so that everyone involved could be on the same page for the vision for the shower.


Overall, the theme was coral, one of her wedding colors, and Around the Clock. Jenna LOVES time!! If it is 1:23, she will text me, “Do you see the time?! Love you!” So, I thought this would be the best theme for her. Each girl was given a specific time and their gift was supposed to represent that time. And then at the shower, Jenna had to guess the time. Let me just say, Jenna got 100% of the gift times correct. It was crazy!!

Everything was perfect and Jenna loved it!!


I also made these little labels and put on Hershey’s kisses to throw on the table.

Here’s how it turned out:



The gorgeous bride-to-be:


Here are the welcome bags:


Since Jenna’s wedding is in Mexico, I wanted to keep that theme going. Included in the bags:

-chips and guac

-wet nap

-Aleve for the day after


-Mini margaritas


It was a great weekend and I am so glad that I was able to be part of Jenna’s special day!!

Have you ever put together a bridal shower or bachelorette party?
