Set a date: This must be decided upon consultation with the bride unless of course, it’s a surprise shower. Ideally, a bridal shower should be at least a month or two months to the wedding. This is right in setting the mood and creating an avenue for everyone on the bride’s team to bond fully before the big day.

Select a Theme: Bridal showers with a theme are extremely fun. Not only are they colourful, but they also help to set the tone and determine the decoration of the venue. Such pretty theme as pretty in the pink, vintage, tea party or the wild tequila shots and naughty dress up party.
Remember, as the maid of honour, you might be planning the events, you, however, have to make sure they are to the taste of the bride. You don’t want her to be grossed out or bored on her day

Location: This depends on the budget and the closeness to the bride’s city of residence. Convenience is key when choosing a location and also how perfect the venue is for the theme picked. A tequila party won’t be nice in a garden neither would a tea party suit a club

Menu: This is imperative on the theme picked. A tea party will mostly involve snacks, cupcakes and finger foods, while a tequila bar party will well, have a lot of shots going on

Activities: Nigerian typical bridal shower starts and ends with a photo shoot. Most of them do not involve a series of fun games for the brides and her friends. As a conventional maid of honour, this you should be doing differently. Compile series of games that would entertain both the bride and the guests invited to the bachelorette party.
