Hair and Makeup: If you have a friend or family that is great at hair and makeup then don’t be afraid to ask for some help or advice when it comes to creating your look for your bridal shower. You can buy or use your own foundation and makeup products.
Plan a simple menu: When thinking about your menu, you should avoid a full sit-down meal if you want to throw a bridal shower on a budget. You can instead give out dessert.
Avoid fancy favours: Favours are a great way to thank guests for attending the shower, but this doesn’t mean they have to be over the top. You can easily create edible favours that are not only tasty, but affordable.
