Below we have listed some of the

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 cute
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 bachelorette party fun yet to come. The site with the
best bachelorette supplies, already low prices, free shipping and a
free bachelorette party gift can be found
Traditional hula dancing conveys a message - so have the bridesmaid
party learn a hula dance for the guest of honor to make the event
memorable for the bride and guests alike.
While out on the town there
are so many fun
bridal shower games to play to celebrate her last night out. Why
not try Bridesmaid Last Night Out Spin For A Dare Button or you can
do 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-bridesmaid gift.
Also check out some great
downloadable bridesmaid goodies.
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 Pena Coladas! Check out our

When planning your summer
bachelorette party, it's important to keep cool, but think hot!

the 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! Note: Drawing attention to your bachelorette and her
bridesmaids is one of your primary duties as her
maid of honor or
Of course your job as her maid of
honor or bridesmaid does not end with the bachelorette party. The grand
