Before the big day arrives, there are numerous opportunities to celebrate the bride-to-be. From the engagement party to the bachelorette bash and, of course, the bridal shower, each event holds its own special significance. However, there’s one thing in common that ties them all together—a unique theme.

We’re all about the theme, especially when it comes to bridal showers. Choosing the perfect theme with the bride in mind is key to pulling off the ultimate celebration. If you’ve been designated shower planning duties, here’s a collection of our favorite bridal shower themes to consider that’ll celebrate the bride in style. So relax, no pressure—let’s make this one to remember. 

1. Petals and Prosecco Brunch 

Where are all of our brunch lovers? If you raised your hand, then the ‘Petals and Prosecco’ theme is made for you. Envision a buffet complete with all your brunch favorites like waffles, pancakes, bacon, eggs, and more. Paired with a full mimosa bar, this is a whimsical early-morning bridal shower aesthetic. Further enhance the day with a pop-up bloom bar where guests can create their own take-home floral bouquets. 

2. Scooped Up Ice Cream Social 

“The Bride’s Been Scooped Up” is perfect for celebrating a sweet bride. With a colorful palette and sweet treats galore, this theme is ideal for those looking to have some wholesome fun. Of course, you can’t have an ice cream social without ice cream! Set up a sundae-making station complete with all the toppings, or hire a vintage ice cream cart to make an appearance. 

3. The Bride is on Cloud Nine 

With a wedding coming up, odds are you’re celebrating a bride that’s on cloud nine. With that being said, our next theme is truly the dreamiest. Picture all-white decor, incorporating lots of cloud-inspired decorations. Really lean into the theme by having the bride and guests rock all-white ensembles.

4. Last Olé Before the Big Day 

Every wedding timeline is different, but a bridal shower is typically one of the last celebrations before walking down the aisle. So, celebrate the last olé before the big day with a fiesta. Tacos, tequila, piñatas, and vibrant Mexican-inspired decor—this theme is fitting for those laidback brides who love to have a good time.

5. Vintage Tea Party Bridal Shower Themes

Slip on your gloves and grab your oversized hats. It’s tea time. Serve your bridal shower guests a Bridgerton-style party with finger sandwiches, dainty desserts, and tea with a whole lot of sugar. Rent an event space at a local boutique hotel or transform your backyard into a high tea venue with elegant decor.   

6. The Last Splash Bridal Shower Themes 

What’s the hottest bridal shower theme for those toasty summer soirees? A pool party, of course. Not only is it the ultimate summer party, but it also gives the bride a little break from that dreaded wedding planning stress. Picture guests arriving in their favorite swimsuits for a dip in the pool accompanied by some bride-themed floaties and some pool-side cocktails. 

7. PJ Party 

Get ready to slip into your matching jammies for an old-school PJ party. Cozy up on the couch for a rom-com marathon, or take your bridal shower outside for a movie under the stars. Grab the blankets and pillows, but whatever you do, don’t forget the popcorn and candy. It’s a cozy and heartwarming way to celebrate the bride-to-be. 

8. Love in Bloom Bridal Shower 

For those planning a spring or summer bridal shower, this ‘Love in Bloom’ theme is for you. With warm weather on your side, you can take your celebration outdoors. Transform your back garden into the perfect event space with a sweet banquet-style setup paired with colorful glassware and a whole lot of flowers. 

9. Breezy Beach Bridal Shower 

Host a beachy shower before you sea the bride off to her wedding day. You can go the traditional nautical route, lean more towards boho, or just go full mermaid with an under-the-sea theme. It’s perfect for our ocean-loving brides, especially those who might be prepping for a beach wedding of their own. 

10. Pretty in Pink 

Start by setting the tone with pink invitations. Then go crazy with pink balloon displays, flowers, linens, sweet treats, and even custom cocktails. Instead of sticking to one shade of pink, mix it up with a variety of different hues. Keep in mind you can’t have a pretty in pink party without a dress code—make sure all guests come dressed to impress in their all-pink ensembles.

11. Black and White Affair 

Looking for an excuse to get dressed up for a fancy meal? Consider this it. Hosting a black and white bridal shower is an elegant and classy choice. Plus, it’s a stunning option for those hosting a night-time celebration—that’s right, your bridal shower doesn’t have to be a daytime affair. With a black-and-white color scheme and formal attire, this will truly be an unforgettable night. 

12. She Found Her Maine Squeeze 

When life gives you lemons, you host a citrus-themed bridal shower. You can go full Amalfi Coast vibes or stick to the traditional lemon-inspired decor. Either way, don’t forget to include a mini lemonade bar. It’s truly a stunning option for spring and summer bridal showers.
