Creative Bridal Shower Ideas

Today’s brides are hipper, more progressive, and interested in doing their own thing.  Although they honor the tradition of marriage, they want their wedding journey to be individually their own and to make a statement that is singularly theirs. They don’t want the standard, run of the mill, done-it-a-thousand-times shower. They want something new.  Try some of these ideas on for size. Perhaps one of them will create the perfect shower for the bride-to-be.

A Green Gala - Creative Bridal Shower Ideas

A Green Gala

We don’t mean using the color green for all the decor, we’re talking about leaving a small carbon footprint. Being eco-friendly could be an excellent theme for the bride who shops organic, recycles everything possible, tries to live in an environmentally friendly manner. Think paperless invitations and minimal frills.  A garden setting would be perfect. Instead of elaborate glamour for decor, go naturalistic with organic cotton tablecloths and napkins, and silverware tied with lavender and twine. Cater in an organic, farm-to-table menu with vegan or gluten-free treats for dessert. Show appreciation for your guests with a gift of tree saplings, soy candles, or dried lavender sachets or essential oils.


A Potluck Party

This idea combines a DIY vibe with a nostalgic home-is-where-the-heart is feel.  Instead of catering in a gourmet meal, have each guest bring their favorite dish to share along with the recipe printed on a card.  Gather them all in cute recipe box to present to the bride with gifts of table linens, cookbooks, and kitchen gadgets. This is perfect for the bride that loves to cook but still needs a little assistance. If all goes well, you might get invited back for a dinner party.

The Honeymoon Soiree

One of the most anticipated parts of the wedding is the honeymoon. Find out where the happy couple is headed, and plan the shower around the destination.  For example, if the couple is going to a tropical location, plan a luau with some traditional fare and tropical beverages. If they’re going to the mountains, have a rustic theme. Venice? Serve an authentic Italian feast with regional wine. Guests can combine forces and present the couple with gift certificates for couples massages, a daily excursion, or a glamorous gourmet meal at their destination. Start the honeymoon early and help it be more memorable.

Food - Creative Bridal Shower Ideas

The Sweet Wishes Shower

For this party, there is no such thing as too sweet. Focus on a dessert menu with everything from a soft serve ice cream sundae bar to cakes and cookies, or from the bride’s favorite dessert to a sweet candy bar. Have a large picture mat mounted on an easel for guests to write their “sweet wishes” on for the bride and groom.  After the ceremony, the hostess can have the bride’s favorite wedding picture enlarged and framed with the mat, giving the couple a permanent memoir of their friends’ wishes and love for them on their special day.

A Fragrant Festival

Shower the bride with lovely scents and some aromatic pampering. The focus should be on feminine florals and delicate fragrances. Use fresh flowers to decorate and have guests create their own signature scents, essentials oils, and scrubs. Gift registry ideas could include spa items for the bathroom, custom towels and linens, or gift certificates to a local spa.

Whichever theme you choose, make sure it focuses on the bride. The shower is the start to her wedding experience, and you want it to be memorable, unique, and especially designed just for her. With careful planning and thoughtful attention to detail, you can give your bride the perfect shower.

Terms & Conditions

Our general return policy applies to all eligible products except certain dresses listed below. You may return product(s) within 7 days for either a store credit or you may make an exchange. We do not issue refunds. A store credit will be issued minus a 15% restocking fee will be applied to all returns/exchanges. We do not profit from this restocking fee since our suppliers charge us this fee. An RMA must be submitted for approval in order to return an item. Shipping fees, if any, which were applied at purchase are not refunded. Once the item is received, an email will be sent to you with a store credit code that does not expire or an exchange will be processed.


We offer a 7-day return window for most purchases (exclusions listed below).

The return window begins when your package is marked "Delivered" by the tracking system. From that time, you have 7 days (including weekends and holidays) to make a return/exchange request. You will be unable to submit a return/exchange request after that 7-day period.


  • Customers now have the option to pay $1.98 at the time of purchase to later qualify for free returns on that order.
  • Didn’t add and checkout with Re:Do? You will still return like normal and purchase a label through them with discounted shipping rates saving you time and money!

  • Clearance items (will be clearly marked "Clearance" or have the price that does not end in $xx.99 or $xx.98)
  • Wedding gowns
  • Quinceanera dresses
  • Cinderella Divine Black Label

The following fees are as follows:

  • Customer is responsible for shipping costs on return/exchanged items if RE:DO was not added to your order at checkout.
  • A 15% restocking fee for all returns will be accessed.
  • Packages that are denied and "returned to sender" or refused will be subject to a 50% restocking fee.
  • Please note that any amount paid for shipping is non-refundable.


If you would like to make an exchange for a different size or dress, simply submit an RMA by clicking here . Once approved, you will receive an email with instructions. The exchange process can take 7-12 days. Once the item has been received and approved, you will receive an email with a code that you can use to apply on our website to make an exchange. You will go through the checkout process online.

If time is of the essence, place a new order for the item you need, then contact us by email informing us of this decision. If for some reason the item that you ordered is not available, it will not constitute a refund. In such a case, a store credit will be issued once the original dress has been returned.


  • Returns are carefully inspected; all original tags must be in place and the product must not show any signs of wear or damage.
  • Items found with snags, worn, washed, altered, ripped, stained, grease marks, pet hair, pen marks, perfume, deodorant stains, smoke odor and/or missing tags will be returned immediately at the customer's expense.
