If your daughter or close friend is getting married, you may be responsible for planning a bridal shower. Typically held a month or two before the wedding, a bridal shower is a gathering of the bride's closest friends and/or family. It's a way for the bride to destress before the big day and celebrate over brunch, tea or cocktails. Guests often bring gifts, either personal in nature, such as lingerie or bath and body products, or practical items found right off the couple's registry that they can use together, such as kitchen or household gadgets.

The bridal shower is usually the duty of the maid-of-honor or the mother of the bride, but it can also be planned by a close friend. If this job has fallen to you, the first step is to talk to the bride about what she wants. Some brides prefer a typical bridal shower, in which all the attention is placed on them. Others may choose to have a couples wedding shower, which includes the friends and family of the couple, and is a celebration of their relationship together.

After the bride has decided on a bridal shower or a couples wedding shower, it's time to talk about when and where it will be held, who she wants to invite and what theme she'd like. Does she want a classy afternoon tea party? Or would she prefer to meet at a restaurant for brunch? Maybe the couple wants a backyard barbecue with their closest friends. Whatever the bride or the couple chooses, be sure to adhere to the theme. After all, it is about them. From there, you'll use all that information to pick and word stationery (check out our roundup of adorable, affordable bridal shower invitations) that perfectly convey the plans of the day.
