Another trend inherited from the West, a bridal shower is a concept which takes places a few days before the bride’s wedding. With shaadi season on the roll, you will definitely get a number of bridal shower invites from your friends and family. If not, you will DEFINITELY see your Facebook and Instagram timelines filled with images of a *insert any cute theme here* bridal shower.
Bridal showers are fun and they have a lot of energy in them. If you are going to a bridal shower for the first time, here’s what you need to keep in mind:
1. It Does Not Involve Bathing The Bride
A lot of people (especially guys) wonder if bridal showers have anything to do with giving bride a shower or something similar. Why bridal showers are called “bridal showers”? I am as clueless as the entire idea behind this very concept.
2. You Will Meet A Lot Of Old (read ex) Friends
If you are going on a bridal shower of an old, there are high chances that you will come across people who you do not like or who were once your “good” friends. Oh, the memories.
3. Following The Theme Can Be Hectic
The exciting thing about bridal showers is that there is a theme that needs to be followed.
