This sendoff is done in the form of a bridal shower, a time-honored and fun tradition for brides-to-be. Read on to find out about the basic things you need to know about a bridal shower.


A bridal shower is a get-together with your gal pals, and it is your last hurrah as a single woman before you tie the knot. This is usually done days before your wedding (many brides and experts advise against holding it on the night before the big day—you want to get your beauty sleep!), and is essentially a gift-giving party thrown in your honor. With all the variations of bridal showers nowadays, these parties can range from an intimate gathering at home to a wild night out.


You'll be delighted to know that you won't have to stress yourself over planning your bridal shower—by tradition, your friends will take care of the program and foot the bill, too. All you have to do is be there on the day of the party—pretty easy, right?
