Tea Party Bridal Shower Ideas

tea party bridal showerI can’t believe we’re already in to April and this year’s fist quarter is behind me. After a very busy holiday season, followed by a couple of weeks of down time, this year has gotten off to a great start with many projects in the bag. One of which is this tea party bridal shower design I did for Celebrations a couple of months ago.

For this project I share ideas for design, tea sandwiches & pomegranate iced tea recipes, themed favors, and a bridal shower trivia game. This was a favorite of mine to create because I got to use my collection of tea cups and saucers, and other pretty accouterments. Here are some photo highlights below, and you can get the full rundown by following the links.

One of my favorite design concepts for this tea party is the garden gate used to hold a menagerie of tea cups. I use simple “s” hooks to hang them and guests can pick their favorite design. Combining form and function is always smart!

If you like these ideas, please SHARE and PIN them! Have a great day!

Tea Party Bridal Shower - Fun idea

by foryourguests

I chatted briefly with a woman who attended a bridal shower this past weekend. She described it as one of the prettiest bridal showers she’s ever been to.
It took place at the clubhouse at Champions Gate in Orlando, FL. It’s located about 10 minutes away from Disney World, but isn’t a part of the tourist areas. Their clubhouse accommodates about 150 guests, but this bridal shower happened to have about 40 guests. The wedding will have about 175 guests, but will not take place in the same location.
The bride’s friends all got together and threw her a Tea Party Bridal Shower

Usually no shower for second wedding

by itwouldbeinpoortaste

Unless you had some very unusual circumstances like your house burned down with all your previous household gifts in it and people felt sorry enough for you to want to re-shower you.
if it is second wedding people tend to believe you are well-enough furnished.
if you want a party befor the wedding don't call it a shower have your FMIL throw you a "bridal tea" or "bride's luncheon" so it's not a gift-giving party like a shower is.
there is also a southern tradition i read about in crane's wedding blue book, i think, called an introduction tea, if his family does not know you or you do not know them, it gets everyone together before the wedding and is a pseudo-engagement party as well

Wedding shower... Some questions...

by dr-cassidy

I posted in the women's forum, still I'd like your input.
What is a reasonable amount for each bridesmaid to chip in for a bridal shower?
I am a bridesmaid. I live near the bride, whereas most of the party does not. I am looking at venues and wanted to get an idea of what sort of price range would be reasonable. We intend to split the cost of the shower equally. The invitaions will read "hosted by her bridesmaids" or something to that effect.
Some Background Info:
It will be held in a rented space. The guestlist is somewhat high. We wanted to host a tea or a brunch

Engagement parties  — Iowa State Daily
If it is a fancy venue, then it may be appropriate to have a black-tie event, but if it is a casual venue, it is not necessary to wear something so fancy as a ball-gown or a tuxedo.
