If you ask us, the bridal shower is one of the best prewedding festivities: It's a low-pressure party where everybody mingles and gets to know each other before the wedding. There's usually a game or two (preferably with fun prizes), a few cute decorations and some yummy food. And when the party's over, bridal shower favors are a popular way to thank everyone for coming.

Below, we dive into everything you need to know about favors at your wedding shower, including whether they're necessary and who pays for them. Then, we've rounded up our favorite bridal shower favors that you can buy in bulk without breaking the bank.

Bridal Shower Party Favor Q&A

Whether you're hosting a bridal shower brunch or a coed backyard BBQ, there are plenty of unique and affordable party favors that'll seriously wow your guests. But before we share our favorite mementos, here are some answers to the most-asked questions about wedding shower favors. Let's get started!

Are bridal shower favors necessary?

Giving out wedding shower favors isn't necessary, but it's a nice gesture. Favors are a cute way to show your gratitude and double as party keepsakes. The best favors are the ones that guests can use and enjoy after the party ends. Bonus points if your favors tie into the wedding shower's theme.

How much should you spend on bridal shower favors?

What to spend on favors depends on a few factors, including your budget and the number of guests. If you're planning a small and intimate party, you might choose to spend more than someone who's hosting a larger gathering. But it's entirely up to you! There are plenty of excellent options between $1 and $5, and there's definitely no need to spend more than $10 per favor. Pro tip: Buying in bulk might help you score a discount.

Who pays for bridal shower favors?

Typically, whoever hosts the wedding shower is responsible for buying the party favors. In many cases, it's a collaborative effort between friends and family who are sharing planning duties. Sometimes, someone volunteers to pay the total cost of favors. In other cases, a few different people agree to split the bill. An honor attendant or parent—for example, the maid of honor or mother of the bride—usually starts that conversation. As always, it's important to be mindful of everybody's budget.
