Personalized Bridal Shower Gifts for Brides & Guests

Spring into love: Personalized bridal shower gifts

Love is in bloom! As wedding season approaches, bridal showers present the perfect opportunity to shower the bride-to-be with love and personalized gifts that celebrate her upcoming wedding. These gatherings bring together family and friends to honor the bride-to-be and shower her with love, laughter, and thoughtful gifts.

I got married last year, and I know first-hand how much the bride appreciates thoughtful planning and special gifts. This month, I’m planning a bridal shower for my sister-in-law in Atlanta, Georgia. Spring bridal showers can take advantage of the warm weather and new blooms!

Whether you’re hosting a bridal shower or attending as a guest, here are some thoughtful ideas to make the occasion truly special:

Live Personalization Experiences

Flower Bar

Create a DIY flower bar at a bridal shower where guests can create their our bouquets from their favorite stems and blooms 💐

Use brown butcher paper to wrap bouquets or provide mini bud vases for guests to take home. A custom flower bar not only adds a personal touch to the décor, but it serves as an activity for guests and a take-home favor that guests will display in their home. Take it up a notch with hand engraved flower vases that commemorate the bridal shower.

Mimosa Station

Say cheers to the bride in the best way! 🥂

Who doesn't love mimosas with brunch? Create a mimosa station with various juices, pretty cocktail glasses, and all of the "fixings" that go along with it. I'm suggesting sliced strawberries, fresh blueberries, orange slices, and rosemary springs, but the options are endless. 

Don't stop with orange juice! Include some fun options like watermelon juice, cranberry juice, or even blueberry juice. You can't go wrong with a mimosa at a bridal shower in the spring! 

Calligraphy Workshop

Elevate the bridal shower entertainment with a calligraphy workshop led by a professional calligrapher. A mini workshop or full class is a great option for more structured, longer bridal showers where you want to provide entertainment for guests. Guests can learn the art of beautiful handwriting and create personalized stationary, love notes, or even custom décor for the wedding day.

I offer calligraphy workshops to private groups for bridal showers, bachelorette parties, or even a GNO 💖 Click here to learn more about classes


Personalized Gift Ideas for Bridal Shower Guests

Custom Calligraphy Thank You Cards

Show appreciation to your friends and family with custom calligraphy thank you cards. Your bridal shower attendees will feel valued and love to see their personalized thank you card with their name and a heartfelt message from the bride. Bonus points if you add pretty wax seals to the outer envelope 🤩

Engraved Wine Glasses or Tumblers

Treat guests to engraved wine glasses or tumblers featuring their names or initials, perfect for toasting to the bride's happiness and future success. You can provide these custom engraved glasses as gifts at the shower, or hire a professional engraver to customize items on the spot!

Live engraving requires very little setup and lots of entertainment for bridal shower guests. 

Custom Bridal Shower Newspaper

Welcome each guest at the door with a bridal shower program!

Created for our own wedding day, this "Newlywed Times" serves as a way to give guests more information about the bride and groom. Not only does it have details about the couple, but it includes a word search, games, and fun facts about the bride and groom. 

Edit this downloadable template to customize it for bridal shower guests to include a special note from the bride, photos from the proposal, wedding day information, and games for the guests.

Personalized Recipe Books

Brides + foodies? 🥗

My sister-in-law and her husband love to cook, so I am setting up a recipe station at the bridal shower for guests to share their favorite recipes with the bride. Provide guests with index cards -- or ask them to bring a copy of their favorite recipe to the shower with a simple line on the invitation.

Create personalized recipe books using a photo album or scrapbook. This recipe book is a very personal gift for brides that is filled with favorite meals contributed by loved ones. 

Monogrammed Home Decor

Every southern home has at least one monogrammed piece of decor throughout the home. Help the newlyweds personalize their home with monogrammed home decor items, such as throw pillows, towels, picture frames, or wall art, featuring their shared initials or family name.

Couples will display personalized gifts in their home and remember the friends and family who gave thoughtful items that turned their house into a home 🏠

Bridal showers are personal & gifts should be, too!

As an artist who adds a personal touch to everything, I believe that personalized gifts add an extra layer of love and thoughtfulness to any bridal shower, creating cherished memories that last a lifetime. Whether you opt for live personalization experiences or carefully curated gifts, I'm here to help you make the bride's special day truly unforgettable.
