Honestly, do you personally know of any lady who truly enjoys the old fashioned bridal shower complete with the shower games as ladies are fervently competefor dollar store prizes? If the answer is yes that person is the exception, not the norm. The latest trend in bridal showers is to host a beauty themed shower.
There are two ways you can go about hosting the beauty themed shower. One is to arrange with a local spa to host your shower there. If you give them advance notice they will likely be able to serve refreshments to your party. Most spas will already have packages available to choose from for your bridal shower.
A more economical way is to host the beauty bridal shower yourself. All you need to do is enlist the help of a few professional estheticians for a few hours. Next you want to think “mini”. Stations set up with mini facials, make up or nail polish application, or a 10-minute massage station which the guests can circulate through. This gives the ladies the opportunity to relax and be pampered as they mix and mingle with a drink in hand. Complete the event with some nibblies and the bridal shower will be a hit with your guests as the bride is showered with wonderful memories from her special day!
