Often referred to as “bridal shower, or “couples shower” or “co-ed shower” or “Jack and Jill shower”, a wedding shower starts by planning, organizing wedding menus, wedding gifts and especially wedding shower party favors. These favors are chosen and bought either by the bridesmaid/best man or the couple-to-be-married. A wedding shower is often planned by taking inspiration from the many bridal shower themes and incorporating more manly features to create a more co-ed atmosphere.
When talking about wedding shower party favors, it is usually based on the wedding theme the couple had chosen. For e.g. if a couple chooses to have a “stock the pantry” for their wedding shower, they can opt for either edible items like candies or lollipops or brownie pops or cup cakes. And if the couple feels that they need to give away their own token of love and gratitude i.e. personalized bridal shower favors they can have it personalized with either their names printed or engraved or with a symbol of their choice.
Bridal shower favors ideas are aplenty which can be bought either online or at the nearest bridal stores.
