Here comes the bride!

When it comes to pre-wedding celebrations, most of us are probably familiar with the traditional boozy hen’s night. But for the more discerning bride-to-be who appreciates life’s little luxuries, a high tea party is the most romantic way to shower her with love as you celebrate her upcoming nuptials.

Think elegant tea parlour, chilled bubbles, tiered plates of petit finger sandwiches and decadent sweet treats – it’s the perfect setting to celebrate the special bond between girlfriends as they count down to the bride’s big day.

But what exactly does a high tea bridal shower involve? Who organises it, and who should be on the invite list? Don’t worry, apart from setting the date and inviting the girl squad, we have you covered.

Here are our top tips on how to plan the perfect high tea party that the bride-to-be will remember long after she says, “I do”.

Who hosts the bridal shower?

Usually the shower is hosted by the bridesmaids or the groom’s mother. Traditionally, the mother of the bride (MOB) should be a guest, but in today’s modern society, the MOB or the bride herself can throw the party. Why not!

Who should be on the invite list?

Bridal showers are designed to be a more intimate affair, where the bride can spend some quality time with her closest gal pals and family. The bride’s attendants, immediate family members of the bride and groom (yes that includes your mother-in-law!) and close friends should all be on the list.

What do you do at a bridal shower?

You mean if you have time in between sipping on champagne, indulging in delicious treats and discussing all the fun details about the upcoming wedding? If creating a romantic headpiece sounds like fun, Aimee Provence offers this special interactive workshop as part of the celebration. Or you can bring along your own fun and games of course.

Do guests need to provide a gift?

Unlike a baby shower, bridal showers are more about celebrating the bride-to-be and less about gifts. Perhaps a small keepsake or a bouquet of flowers?
