Your best friend is getting married in the warmth of the summer sun and
there's nothing more exciting than helping her celebrate by the
bridesmaids planning the perfect bridal shower, finding the most
bridesmaid dresses that makes everyone look fantastic and of course
bachlorette party that everyone recalls for the rest of their lives.
Below we have listed some of the
most popular bridesmaid summer ideas to make your bridal shower and
bachelorette party a major success:
The perfect bridal shower begins
with the perfect summer theme. Luaus are a great way to say Aloha and
help your bride celebrate her special occasion. You can create this
magical event poolside, beach side, or you can even bring it inside at a
beautiful restaurant. Either way, the decoration possibilities are
endless. Bring in the vibrant colors, sounds and smells of Hawaii with
tropical flowers, Hawaiian music and tropical scented candles.
Decorate your guests with silly
plastic lei's, but let your bride know how special she is with her very
own fresh orchid lei or you can check out the
Bachelorette Party Naughty Lei for the bride-to-be and the
classic lei's as a prelude to the bachlorette party fun yet to come.
Traditional hula dancing conveys a message - so have the bridal party
learn a hula dance for the guest of honor to make the event memorable
for the bride and guests alike..
Bridal Shower favors help your
bridesmaid guests remember how much fun they had helping your bride
celebrate her impending wedding day - in keeping with the theme, flip
flop frames or Hawaiian flower frames are a great little keepsake and
also serve well as a place card for your special guests.
Menu planning for a Luau might
include cooking a kalua pig in an underground oven, but if that's too
much trouble why not try teriyaki chicken, fresh fish, salad and fresh
tropical fruits. Serve tropical drinks of the season such as Mai Tai's
and Pina Coladas! Check out our
bridesmaid planning page for more great general and helpful ideas!
When planning your summer
bachelorette party, it's important to keep cool, but think hot! Lounging
by the pool sipping refreshing drinks with your colorful
Bachelorette Party Straws and laughing with your friends is a
terrific way to kick off the bachlorette party and keep cool in the
process. When it's time to hit the town, sundresses, strappy sandals and
body glitter is a great way to feel hot! Keep your bachlorette cool on
the town with her very own Big Gulp Sipper, which always draws a lot of
attention. Note: Drawing attention to your bachlorette and her entourage
is one of your primary duties as her bridesmaid.
While out on the town there are so
many fun games to play to celebrate her last night out. Why not try
Bridesmaid Last Night Out Spin For A Dare Button or you can create your
own Scavenger Hunt. But no matter how you celebrate, make sure that you
document every moment.. You can create lasting memories for your
bride-to-be with the perfect post-bachlorette party gift, The
Bachelorette Party Flip Photo Album.
Of course your job as her maid of
honor/bridesmaid does not end with the bachlorette party. The grand
finale is to honor your friend by giving the best, most heartfelt speech
that's both touching and entertaining without being too long. If your
having trouble putting your feelings into words, check out our
Honor Speech for some great ideas.
