Bridal Shower Planning Checklist

Everything you need to know about showering the bride-to-be. 

  • Pick a date. Showers should be held about two weeks to two months before the wedding. Earlier is better.
  • Compile a guest list. As the host, you should set the number of guests you're comfortable inviting. If the shower isn't a surprise, consult with the bride about whom to include.
  • Choose a theme. But only if you wish.
