Bridesmaids are an integral part of planning the wedding since they are the closest to the bride. She may be her sister or her best friend who has been with her since the start or a very long time and knows her in and out. A Bridal Shower is generally organised by the bridesmaid to surprise the bride with a fun-filled gathering consisting of all her near and dear ones. A rather exciting yet emotional event before the marriage requires a little more effort to make it one of the most memorable days of the bride’s life. Wedding Affair brings the ultimate guide for bridesmaids to plan the perfect Bridal shower.

The first and foremost is to decide the budget that you are willing to spend on the bridal shower. This will lead to further planning the event whether you want to sponsor it entirely or want to opt for a dutch system wherein the guests can contribute a minimum amount each.
The Guest List
Generally, a bridal shower is an intimate affair with only people close to the bride are present. It is important to finalise the guest list in the start as it will help in taking the planning ahead and arrangements can be done accordingly.
Short Listing The Venue
