Hi bees, my mother and I have been trying to get ideas for my bridal shower, since she hasnt talked to my MIL about it yet we are just trying to put ideas together. Now, since it will be in November I was wondering if it had to be fall themed, or fall colors, or it doesnt matter? It doesnt have to match our wedding theme either, does it? Sorry for all the questions, we just dont really go to bridal showers.
There isnt much money to spend on the bridal shower so it also cant be something expensive. If you can share your ideas or themes that would be great! Pictures would help so much! Thank you 🙂

You do not have to use a fall theme or match the wedding theme if you choose not to.
Most of the showers I go to are nothing like the 60-80 person restauarant or catered showers you read about here on the bee. They are 15-25 people, held at someone’s home with tea, punch, wine appis ,and cake whether in the afternoon on a weekend or in the eveining any day that works.
Do you have any hobbies or interests? favorite books or movies? do you like to travel?
Are you hoping for a general shower or something themed like kitchen, wine or lingerie?
Remember not to get too involved. This is supposed to be a social event put on for you, not by you or your Mom.

@julies1949: Oh I will not get too involved and as soon as my mom talks to my MIL I will stop trying to help her, she just wants to do themes that have nothing to do with me thats why I’m trying to help her out in giving her ideas.
Thanks for the info though, she was stuck on it having to be a fall themed shower just because its November, but I will let her know that it can be anything else.
