Something pretty. Something sweet. Something sexy…to knock the groom off his feet! What kind of shower/gifts can you plan for a bridal shower for the bride-to-be that has everything that she and her fiance need? Bridal lingerie showers are the perfect type of shower for the bride that already has her kitchen gadgets, furniture and linens. Lingerie is a gift that she and her groom will appreciate and can range from lacy and racy to simple and sweet. Have guests bring anything from flannel pajamas and slippers to slips and nighties, depending on the bride and groom’s taste, and what they are comfortable with.
As this is such a personal shower, be sure that the bride is comfortable ahead of time with the guests attending and subject matter at hand. Nobody wants an embarrassed bride! If needed, you may want to ask the bride if she is okay with the hosts providing the attending guests with her measurements and size preferences. Also, be sure all guests include gift receipts for their gifts in case a received gift is not the bride’s style.
When choosing your lingerie shower invitation, choose one that reflects the bride’s personality and the type of lingerie she is interested in. Whether it is wild animal prints and fun colors, soft, cuddly and sweet or scandalous. Take a look at some of our most popular lingerie shower invitations below:
Need some lingerie shower game ideas? I found these great ideas from all about showers.com:
The Bride’s Poem
Start off by writing a sentence about the bride (or bride and groom) as if it were the first line of a poem. Then pass it around the room as the bride opens her presents. Each guest must write down a next line of the poem, following the previous line as logically as possible. Then, she folds the sheet of paper over, so that the next guest only sees the line she has written. The maid of honor or hostess reads the wacky poem at the end of present opening!
The Wedding Night
This one is particularly fun at a lingerie shower. As the bride unwraps her gifts, have a bridesmaid quietly write down everything she says, such as “oooh, this is pretty” and “where does this go?”. At the end, have that bridesmaid announce, “this is what the bride will say on her wedding night” and read the list out loud!
Groom in his skivvies
Tell each guests that the object of the game is to draw a picture of the groom in his underwear, but the catch is that the drawing pad must remain on top of the artist’s head the whole time she is drawing! The bride picks her favorite drawing to win a prize.
Have lots of pencils and paper handy. As guests arrive, encourage them to write anonymous advice for the bride on her wedding night. Read aloud as the bride opens her sexy gifts and get ready for giggles, laughs and a WHOLE lot of fun!
