Your best girl’s getting married soon so you decide to throw her the shower party of her dreams. But, where do you start? What activities do you fit in? If you’re tired of the usual night out and you find yourself running low on bridal shower ideas, then worry not! I have four suggestions for you to consider. Whether your best girl has a sweet tooth, a knack for creating art or a flower addiction like mine, I’ve got you covered. Choose one or even a combination of several activities below for a bridal shower party that can only be classy.

English Afternoon Tea

What is fancier than an English afternoon tea party? None, obviously! Go traditional at The Ritz, be adventurous at One Alwych or get Instagram-crazy at Sketch. It doesn’t even matter whether you want to put cream or jam on top of your scone first. An English afternoon tea party will surely be a fun and classy experience for everyone.

Art Lovers Party

Tap into the creative world! Go for a calligraphy session, a brush lettering workshop or even a watercolour painting lesson. There are endless possibilities if you only know where to look for them! Many artists, calligraphers and stationers offer private workshops for small groups these days. Why not take advantage of that?

Luxury Dessert Experience

If your bride-to-be has a sweet tooth then why not try a luxury dessert experience? Level up a plain wedding cake-tasting session and then add a classy twist while you’re at it. My personal recommendation is The Patisseria (by MonAnnie Cakes and Alexandra Rose Weddings) a patisserie table filled with sweet and savoury treats. Read more about it in my post about their beautiful branding shoot at the stunning Belmond Le Manoir.

Floral Immersion

Have you ever heard of a hand-tied flower workshop? How about a flower wreath-making class? Both sound like the perfect chance to see if the bride’s wedding bouquet pins on Pinterest could look just as beautiful in real life! This is possibly my favourite among my list of bridal shower ideas. It’s a fun way to experiment before the big day and help the bride figure out what flowers would look stunning in her own wedding bouquet.
