Bridal Shower Tips:

1. One of the best activities for a bridal shower is sharing recipes with the bride for her to use in her new home. When serving each course, share the recipe with the bride. Handwrite your recipe cards or simply print out these recipes from! Encourage guests to bring their own recipes to share as well.

2. Bridal showers should take place 6-8 weeks before the wedding.

3. Since you're in charge of cooking, assign someone to be in charge of gifts. Have them collect the gifts and write down who gave what. The bride should only have to do the opening!
