Bridal showers are one of the many traditional pre-wedding parties that are a lot of fun. The purpose of a bridal shower is for the bride to get together with her friends and family to eat, play games, and basically just enjoy herself before her wedding day. It is also a great time to shower the bride with gifts and good wishes. This is usually where the bride gets stuff like sleepwear, linen, accessories to accompany her into her marriage.

Planning a bridal shower can be fun and enjoyable too. But you need to be organized and plan it well in advance to avoid any hassles. Creating a shower checklist will help you on your way to organizing a great party.

First thing you have to consider is, who should host the shower? Usually it's the maid of honor who hosts the party, but it can be anyone too, as long as it's well planned and approved by the bride.

When to have your party? Usually it's 4-6 weeks before the wedding, because of the busy schedule of the bride. It can happen at any time of the day, whether brunch, lunch, an afternoon party, or even dinner.
