I had three showers, and while one was more themed than the other two (the Italy one) they were all lovely.
Daisy afternoon tea
Now share your shower themes (with a photo or two!)
What was your favorite?

I think my shower is going to have a daisy theme. I saw the invites and they have daisies on them. But I won’t know for sure until August 22. Other than the quest list and when and where, I’m pretty much out of the loop.

My shower theme is all about birds. Cute little fat birds, birds flying, feathers, peacocks. All birds. Kind of like love birds, but not sappy. I sort of have a thing for birds. Especially vintage ones.

Mine wasn’t so much pretty as it was hilarious. The theme was "Everyone’s a Bridesmaid" — everyone had to wear a bridesmaid dress! The uglier the better of course. I went to Goodwill and got a seriously 80s style wedding dress to wear. It was such a fun day!

My Maid/Matron of Honor and I chose a Hat Brunch. Everyone will have to wear a hat. Made, bought, simple, fancy, fun, ugly, whatever!! I think it will be great!! I can’t wait.

My shower was a princess theme. The invitations were from a designer on etsy called "Calling all Princesses" and they have a minature wand on them. At the shower they had little star wands all over the place and crowns on top of the desserts. Everything was purple and pink, super cute. They even made me wear a flashing tiara all day.
PS I love the Everyone’s a Bridesmaid idea!

We’re planning a flip flop themed shower for my cousin: "Erin’s Flipped for Paulie!" She loooooves flip flops and we thought it would be tons of fun.

My Future Mother-In-Law is planning a Hawaiian themed shower for me because we’re going to Hawaii for our honeymoon! I’m excited, I just hope she doesnt go too far with it!
I am having another one that my mom and sister are throwing and I know nothing about it … but I’m excited about that. I know whatever they do will be awesome.

"High Tea @ The Ritz" meets Garden/Derby party. We are having a tea theme but with martinis which are cleverly named different things for fun. It’s outdoors on the lake under a tent and everyone is asked to wear tea hats/derby hats/fascinators & dresses. My dress is presently being made in a pale peachy color with ruffles all over – searching for my hat. Here’s some inspirational items for my shower which is only two months away!!!!!!
We are also having the garden portion tie in by making the centerpieces potted herb plants which double as favors – and they each will have a butterfly on a stick in them with the herb’s meaning in relation to love/wedding. So it’s a gardeny tea party but with glam!

I don’t get it. Why are you all involved in and know about your showers? Whatever happened to them being a surprise?

Mine is mainly because I dont have bridesmaids & dont expect my mother to simply do everything herself. Also, I dont know if it’s a culture thing but at least for Cubans – the bride is usually involved in her shower & the general concept & has the bridesmaids/mothers execute it.

@Humarockbride – I threw my sister a luau/Hawaiian theme shower b/c they honeymooned in Hawaii – it was a huge hit!
I know the date of my shower (our schedules are too busy for a surprise date…) but beyond that do not know anything yet.

<span class=”Apple-style-span” style=”font-family: Times; font-size: medium”><div style=”font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 10px; background-color: #ffffff”>We (the bridesmaids) just threw a lingerie shower for the bride to be. Her bridal colors are black and white, so the theme was black, white, and bling! We had brownies and cupcakes with e-rings as toppers, and instead of the traditional shower games we aired the bride’s dirty laundry: guests wrote embarrassing stories about her on lingerie and bra cut-outs, then hung on a clothesline. It was a blast!
