Bridal Shower Ideas For The Perfect Celebration
With summer in the air and travel restrictions easing up, wedding season is back! And no wedding is complete without an incredible bridal shower to celebrate with friends and family before the big day.
Today we’re diving into all things planning and hosting a bridal shower: from bridal shower themes to bridal shower venues, and even bridal shower ideas specific to San Diego. While we might be just a little biased here, we truly believe that San Diego is the ultimate destination to celebrate love and life.
Bridal Shower Themes
We recommend starting with the general theme of the bridal shower you’re looking to create and flushing out the details after. Some of our favorite bridal shower themes this year include:
- Black-tie Old Hollywood
- Afternoon Tea Party
- Midnight In Paris
- Color Theme
Knowing the bride’s interests and lifestyle also plays into choosing the perfect theme. Put yourself in the bride’s shoes and ask yourself how she would want to celebrate with friends and family before her wedding day. It’s her day, so make sure that everything from the decorations and music to the food and venue would be to her liking!
Bridal Shower Venues
Now that you have a theme in mind, we can narrow in on the type of venue to look for. It’s important to find a venue that can accommodate the number of people you plan to invite. You want a space that is welcoming to your guests. Too big of a space can feel empty and too small of a space can be tight and crowded. The Centre Escondido’s event venues provide the backdrop for an event of any size.
A Sky Deck, Rooftop, or Balcony
There’s something about dressing up and meeting friends at a sky deck that goes unmatched. Panorama Point, the balcony space at The Centre Escondido, looks out to a vast landscape of mountain and fountain vistas, while simultaneously creating an intimate ambiance for a small gathering. With San Diego’s beautiful, sunny year-round climate, it’s never a bad time to sit out under the sun with your closest girlfriends and celebrate love with a bride-to-be.
Indoor Outdoor Space
Maintain privacy and comfort while indulging in the awe of nature with indoor-outdoor spaces. Floor-to-ceiling windows bring natural light and beauty indoors while still being able to control climate and keep bugs out. Do you have a sunset bridal shower in mind? Crystal ridge and Sunset Heights are stunning spaces that showcase jaw-dropping views. Your guests will be speechless when the sun starts dipping beneath the surrounding mountains, offering a radiant light show of reds and golds cascading through floor-to-ceiling windows and dancing among the fountain of living water display.
While travel restrictions are easing up, creating a bridal shower that is accessible to all of your friends and family might mean going virtual, and that doesn’t mean they’ll be less fun or less intimate. Watching the way humanity has adapted to isolation this past year has been inspiring, and people became so creative. There are amazing ways to throw virtual bridal showers and weddings, and doing so doesn’t always look like hopping on a Zoom call to chat. Yogi bride? Zen out with a virtual yoga class. Artist bride? Get friends and family together for a virtual paint and sip class. Do a virtual game night or cooking competition, the ideas are endless! Our partners at Vintana Wine + Dine have lots of ideas on how to make your virtual event one to remember.
