The 411 on Throwing a Bridal Shower on a Budget
If you’re stressing out about putting a bridal shower together, have no fear. The following tips will help decrease your costs without making the shower look cheap.
DIY Shower Invitations
Using free birthday ecards will allow you to cut down on one of the major costs of a shower. The good thing is though you will design these shower invitations online, you’ll be able to print them out on high-quality paper so they’ll still look very classy.
Book an Inexpensive Event Location
You don’t have to book an expensive hotel or resort to have a great event for your friend. Depending on the weather conditions, you might decide to have it at a park in a shaded pavilion.
You could even hold it at your home or see if another friend or family member wants to host the event. If someone has a beautiful backyard, that could be a great option. You may want to rent a tent to keep everyone out of the sun but that depends on the time of year.
Potluck the Food
If you’re worried about paying for all of the food, you can ask people to bring something to the shower and have the food potluck style. Everyone will share in the cost of the food and there will be plenty of variations of food available.
Have everyone let you know what they are bringing so you make sure finger foods and main foods are covered.
Check a Party Supply Store for Decorations
Decorations don’t have to cost an arm and a leg. If you check the party supply store, you can find a lot of decorations. Many of them will be on sale from a holiday that just took place.
See if any of the discount items will work for the shower. Even if you don’t get all of the shower decor at a discount, it is going to help out immensely if you get some of it below budget.
If you can get some of your decor at a discount, you can go all out on part of the event to make it look even more special.
