It is often customary for a wedding shower to have a theme which will let your guests know what type of gifts they are expected to bring. Common themes include lingerie and kitchen showers. There are also general showers where the guests are free to bring anything they choose. You may be creative when choosing a theme, asking guests to bring sports items or gifts of a certain color scheme. Also, you might host a 'round the clock' shower asking each guest to bring an appropriate gift for use at a certain time of day or night. In addition to a shower's theme, you may choose to include various games during the event. Such activities can correspond to a theme or may be related to a bride's favorite pastime or hobby. Being creative when hosting a shower can make the event a unique and memorable experience. For more information on hosting showers, consult an event planner or a book on showers at your library.
