Themed bridal showers are popular but choosing a theme can be nerve-wracking. When choosing a bridal shower theme keep a few things in mind. Consider the bride’s personality. Is she more of a conventional bride or does she enjoy quirky things? Think about the guests of the bridal shower. A shower that is for older relatives should be more traditional than a shower that is for contemporary friends. Bridal showers can be for women or may be co-ed. Here is a list of some of the most creative ideas for bridal shower themes. 

Vegas Theme
A Vegas casino theme is a fun party theme that is easy to pull off. Use decorations that create the look of a real casino such as neon lights, plastic palm trees, and make the tables look like real gaming tables using green cloth. Choose brightly coloured drinks and use poker chips, dice, and cards to decorate. This theme has a good luck message built right in!

Kentucky Derby Theme
This is a really fun theme for a couple who are horse-lovers. Create a day filled with the same types of traditions that you’ll find at a premier horse race such as the Kentucky Derby. For décor, think of using a lot of flowers, either fresh or fake. Bright colours are very important to make the theme shine. Place plenty of replica horses around the room. Make race programs and have a taped race playing on the television. Serve traditional mint juleps. 

Mardi Gras Theme
Recreate Bourbon Street with a Mardi Gras themed bridal shower. The theme is a fun and wild one. Décor is easy – think about colourful flowers, beads, masks, and feathers in traditional colours of red, purple, and gold. Serve Cajun food like gumbo or jambalaya. For beverages, choose bright drinks such as the hurricane. 

Beach Party Theme
A fun theme for a summer bridal shower is a beach party. This theme works great for an outdoor poolside party. Think fun and casual with beach blankets, tiki torches, and beach umbrellas. Use casual outdoor chairs and set several bright umbrellas in buckets of sand. Serve barbeque food from the grill with picnic style tables. Serve tropical drinks and use tiny umbrellas in them.
 
Hawaiian Luau
This is another fun theme! Set up a Hawaiian luau in your home or yard. Use brightly coloured flowers to create a tropical theme.  Provide every guest with leis and serve tropical drinks from coconut glasses. Add some plastic palm trees for atmosphere. Use plenty of tropical and Hawaiian items to decorate the tables and walls.
