A Step by Step Guide: How to Throw a Bridal shower surprise
Although it often seems as though surprises are impossible these days what with Blackberrys, email and text messaging, there are ways that it can be done. If you want to throw a Bridal shower surprise there are a few things that you will want to keep in mind and which will help to make it the best Bridal shower surprise ever.
The First Step
The first thing you are going to need to do is make up the guest list. You really cannot go any further before you do this because you are going to need to find out who is willing to come, what days are good for everyone, how far they are going to be able to travel and so on.
Make up a guest list of the bride-to-be’s best friends and closest family members, the number of people that you invite is really up to you and how many people you think they would like to have come.
Choose the Date
The next step in planning the Bridal shower surprise is to actually set the date. This can be somewhat tricky, because more than anything you are going to have to make sure that the bride herself is going to be able to make it on that date, but without letting her know that you are up to anything.
You can speak to her fiancé to see what his opinion is on this, and if you can get a hold of her datebook or calendar, without being overly nosy, you can check to see what dates she has free.
Keep Her Busy
Over the time that you are planning and preparing for the Bridal shower surprise you are going to need to make sure that the soon to be bride is kept busy. Without making it too obvious that you are trying to get her out of the way, you should have her occupied with other tasks while you and the other girls are busy working away to make sure that her bridal shower is just right.
Keep Everyone Quiet
Bridal showers can be very exciting, especially a Bridal shower surprise, but you have to make sure that everyone keeps quiet. The more people each person tells about the surprise party the more likely that it is going to leak out and the guest of honor will find out about the surprise, so make sure that all of the invited guests are tight lipped and keep it on a need to know basis.
