Choosing the perfect bridal shower favor
A bridal shower is an important part of the wedding celebrations, as it lets the bride and her friends take a moment and just enjoy the experience. It doesn’t matter if it’s a formal afternoon tea, or something more subdued a bridal shower is always a memorable affair for everyone. It’s a time to make the bride feel really special, to pamper her, and shower her with gifts.
Giving a bridal shower favor is a great way to say thank you!
Although it’s not required, giving each attendee a bridal shower favor is a great way to thank them for their time, and also for the gift that they gave the bride. A bridal shower favor doesn’t have to be extravagant; it can be just a small token of appreciation. If the bride feels awkward giving a favor to her guests, the hostess, bride’s mother, or her future mother in law can hand them out.
Choosing a bridal shower favor should be easy! It should be about your style!
When choosing what you will give as your bridal shower favor, think about what you like, and also the style of your wedding. If you are having a very simple wedding, something like mini flower vases, or stationary sets may be a great way to say thank you. If you’re having a more fancy or extravagant wedding celebration maybe personalized trinket boxes or personalized handbags would be more suitable for your shower favor.
Some popular bridal shower favor ideas:
- Personalized mint tins

As you can see, there are a lot of unique and special bridal shower favor ideas. Remember to infuse your bridal shower favor with your style; don’t just pick up the first thing you see. A lot of people keep the favor forever, so be sure it’s something you want them to associate with you, and the memories of your bridal shower.
Remember, a bridal shower favor doesn’t have to be expensive! Keep it in line with the tone of your wedding. Simple or elegant, it’s your choice.
Thoughtfulness is what counts, and whether you give them Swarovski crystals or you put your bridal shower favor together at the bridal store, let your friends and family know you appreciate their lavish gifts and attention!
