Bridal showers: what are they?
The tradition of bridal showers dates back to the 16th century when brides who couldn’t afford dowries were ‘showered’ in gifts by relatives and friends, so she may have cash and household items to help her set up her marital home.
However, these days many brides may already live with their spouse and have all their necessary household items, so the tradition of hosting a bridal shower is more focused on celebrating the upcoming marriage of the bride-to-be.

Who arranges the bridal shower?
The bridal shower is traditionally the responsibility of the maid of honour, and traditional etiquette suggests that it should not be hosted by a member of the bride’s family. However, things are different in modern society, and anyone can arrange a bridal shower sunshine coast high tea – including the bride herself.
Whilst many brides’ mothers, sisters or friends may host a bridal shower, it is still considered polite for the host to liaise with the maid of honour throughout the planning process too.
When should the bridal shower be held?
The ideal time for a bridal shower to be held is four to six weeks before the wedding when the bride still has plenty of time and isn’t too preoccupied with wedding planning. However, if the bride lives out of town and is just returning home for the wedding, the shower can be thrown in the week before the wedding is set to take place.
Who should be invited to a bridal shower sunshine coast high tea?
Traditionally bridal showers were small events, with around ten to twenty guests. The female members of the wedding party, such as the maid of honour, the bridesmaids, and the flower girls would be included, along with the mothers and sisters of the bride and groom. Additional invitations would be sent to close female friends and work colleagues.
There is a current trend for larger bridal showers, with every female wedding guest getting an invite. Although this is perfectly acceptable, it is not always necessary. Just because you are inviting someone to the wedding, they shouldn’t expect an invite to the shower, although if you invite someone to the shower they can expect an invite to the wedding.
The essential guests for a traditional bridal shower are the mothers and sisters of the couple, and these should always be invited to take part in the organisation of the bridal shower.
