Your Wedding Wednesday Question
What is the difference between a Bridal Shower and a Bachelorette Party?
Who throws them and when should they take place?
A bridal shower is a party for the bride where female family members and friends bring her gifts for the home. Usually the bridesmaids or close family friend puts it together and it is usually held 6 months before the wedding. A bachelorette party is a last hoorah, a ladies night out, put together by the maid of honor and the bridesmaids. This usually takes place the week of the wedding and usually involves a theme. The bride can partake in the planning of these events or it could be a complete surprise.
