If you have a sister or friend that has just become engaged and has asked you to help with the wedding shower, although there is work involved, you are in for a great experience. Since this person is close to you and someone very special, you want to make her wedding shower an extra special occasion. To begin, you need to determine if the shower will be something the bride is fully aware of or if this is going to be a surprise shower. Having a surprise, wedding shower is not an impossible task but it will take some extra work. If you have other individuals that can assist, then you could pull it off with no trouble. Since the bride is someone that you know well, you will have the opportunity of creating a shower around the things she loves and enjoys.

During the time that the wedding is being planned, schedules are going to be tight so you will have to work with the bride's family and other friends to determine the best time. If the bride is involved with the planning, then some of the challenges of time are eliminated. If the bride or groom's family is from out of town, you will need to host the wedding shower shortly before the wedding so that they can attend. If everyone lives close, then you have a little more leeway on time. Most people think of wedding showers being held on a Friday or Saturday night when in fact, any evening would work fine.

Once the date and time have been established, then you want to make the guest list, which would include family members of the bride and groom, friends, and co-workers. If the bride's side of the family will have one shower and the grooms another, then only invite people directly connected to the bride. Otherwise, both sides for the bride and groom would be invited. Just remember that all of the names on the wedding shower invitee list should also be on the wedding invitee list. After the list is complete, determine the budget, which will in turn determine what activities, food, and drink you can provide.

Depending on your budget, you can choose from food, drinks, party decorations, a cake, small gifts, and so on. If you want food involved more than just appetizers, you can always host the wedding shower at a local restaurant or in someone's home. If the couple were on a tight budget, it would be perfectly acceptable to ask each guest to bring a covered dish, if they can. This will allow everyone to participate in the planning and take a huge load of time and money away from you. Once you know the types of things you can provide based on the budget, you need to order or create wedding shower invitations. These should go out at least three weeks prior to the shower, and a little sooner for those people living out of town. To have a successful wedding shower, you need to keep good records of the number of people invited and accepted. Just remember that this is something special for someone very close to you. Use her favorite colors, foods, and music, and this will turn out to be a memorable day.
