20 Ways to Throw the Prettiest Spring Bridal Shower
For many, springtime symbolizes the turning over of a new leaf. Nature reaffirms this: New flowers bloom, birds return from their winter hiatus, and the sun warms us once again. With this in mind, it's easy to understand why people consider spring as the season of new beginnings—which just so happens to be a wedding-worthy metaphor, too. It also makes sense, then, that March, April, and early May are popular months for pre-nuptial celebrations, especially the bridal shower.
The best part about hosting a spring bridal shower? The endless amounts of in-season blooms at your disposal. With the right florist, planning and executing a garden-themed event that pays homage to the time of year is a breeze. From drink garnishes and lush centerpieces to unique wall décor and dessert finishes, spring bridal shower decorations are, more often than not, floral-themed. And why shouldn't they be, when so many beautiful buds come alive in the springtime? If you're on the fence about a bloom-filled event, consider this rose-themed table setting. Rebecca Chan Weddings' design proves that there's no such thing as too many bridal shower blooms.
Of course, florals aren't the only defining motifs of spring bridal showers—there are plenty more ways to nod to the season. The key to coming up with a bridal shower theme for spring is working fresh, easy touches into all aspects of the celebration. Think rosé, mimosas, and citrus-infused waters for beverages, as well as fresh fruit salads for a light appetizer option. Alternatively, carry spring's signature colors—which often involve pastels—into your décor scheme.
Overall, your spring-inspired stationary, signage, menu offerings, and more will have you (and your guests!) feeling refreshed and ready to celebrate both the bride and the season. Click through to discover spring bridal shower ideas from brides who felt inspired by sunny days, blue skies, and fresh flowers.
