Tea Parties for Bridal Showers

You’ve been asked to be maid of honour and what could be more important than organising the bride-to be’s hen night? It’s time to send out those hen party invitations and start making plans to make sure that your best friend will have the time of her life before her big day.

However, if the bride-to be is expecting something quiet and low-key by all means respect her wishes and opt to throw a bridal shower and refrain from sending out hen party invitations. After all the day is about her and it is only fair to abide her wishes and requirements! If you one of those maid of honour’s tasked with designing bridal shower invitations as opposed to racy hen night invitations keep reading as we give you a few ideas to host the perfect tea party for your best friend’s bridal shower.

Colours

Tea Parties for Bridal Showers

One of the main things you will notice when planning the bridal shower is the different colours that are used when compared to hen night invitations. The colours over here will be more delicate and of a lighter shade as opposed to the vibrant, bright colours seen in hen night invitations. One of the main reasons is because bridal showers are held during the day and will obviously require lighter day-shades when compared to the bright street lights that will be seen during the night and are reflective on hen party invitations.

The colours for bridal shower or kitchen tea invitations usually range from lighter shades of green, purple, pink, blue accompanied with a subtle pattern or a few polka dots set against a traditional red background. It is important to keep the different shades in mind as this is very different in comparison to hen night invitations that are usually bright pink, red, black and white with daring prints.

Types of Tea

As in the case of a hen party invitation that varies from party to party or the type of night-outing that has been planned, tea parties organised for bridal showers too vary from high tea to kitchen tea. As in hen party invitations, it is important to state the location and preferably the dress code for the bridal shower. This becomes important if in the event the bridal shower is not held at the residence of the maid of honour and instead at a relative’s or an outdoor location.

There are many activities that can be planned out if you want to try out something different and the best part is that all of these come with themed hen night invitations designed to complement your best girl’s personality. If you are wondering how you should get about designing hen night invitations, keep reading and let us give you a few ideas you could play around with.

Dinner Date

If the bride-to-be has insisted on a quiet low-key hen party then be sure to mention on the hen night invitation that the only place the girls would be heading after dinner is home. Make a reservation at a chic hotel uptown and toast to wine, champagne and elegant dresses.

Dancing Shoes

If dinner follows dancing, then your hen night invitations would be incomplete without a dash of wild animal prints and stilettos indicating the late long night that is to follow a hearty meal. Make sure to mention in the hen party invites for the girls to wear a pair of fancy heels and as maid of honour be sure to have a white veil and sash all set before hitting the clubs. An interesting idea might be to give out ballet flats or flip flops as hen party favours.

Homebody

If the bride to-be is either more conservative or has especially requested a quiet something then do respect her wishes and either rent out a location large enough to house all those invited or throw a house party, either with the full works or even combine it with a bridal shower ensuring that all get home for dinner. A hen party invitation for such parties could have lots of pink, bows, ribbons and unicorns.

Before deciding on a hen party idea or designing a hen party invitation, quiz your best girl on as to what she would want. Unless you have already decided on a surprise party, then it is always best to do what the bride would enjoy the most.
