14 Creative Bridal Shower Favors

Here are some of our favorite ways to say "thank you."
by Andrea Fowler

If you ask us, the bridal shower is one of the best parts of wedding planning: It's a low-pressure party where you get to hang out with all your close friends and family, and they get to mingle and get to know each other before the wedding. There's usually a game or two, present exchanging and some yummy bites. Giving out favors at a bridal shower isn't necessary, but it's a nice bookend to a party. Our favorite picks? Edible treats never get left behind—and when it's tagged with a punny note, that's even better.
