If you’re in charge of throwing a bridal shower, you may be at a crossroads on how best to plan it. Why? The bride will probably remember it for the rest of her life, so you might need to put a lot of thought into it to make it unforgettable and special. You don’t want to anger the bride-to-family be’s or have Grandma disapprove, so you want to keep the bridesmaids entertained and having fun. Luckily, we’ve come up with a few ideas that will keep everyone happy while also allowing the guest of honor to celebrate her last night as a single woman.

Pool parties are fun, so how about one? A pool party has numerous benefits; enjoying the relaxed atmosphere while sipping favorites like daiquiris, refreshing beers, and Arnold Palmers. Be sure to write the invitation correctly, so guests can know to bring their swimsuits along.

Take you and your favorite girls on a trip to Hawaii with a tropical theme. This theme features a tropical color palette, vivid flowers, and pineapple décor. Your girls will be feeling Hawaiian at the end of the trip. Aloha!

While most bridal showers are casual affairs, it’s OK to go all out for a bride-to-be who prefers a black-tie affair. Just remember to pick a venue that fits the theme—and make sure your guests are aware of the formal dress code.

What makes the fun even more enjoyable? Wine. If you’re planning a destination shower, wine tasting makes an excellent choice. Spend the day tasting white and red wines with your best friends, learning how wine is made, sipping great wine on a patio, having lots of laughter, and making memories. Look for a local winery that offers a variety of selections to make it the ideal outing for you and your girlfriends. Lastly, a brunch with never-ending mimosas will undoubtedly feature laughter and new memories.
