Bridal Shower Themes for 2022
Here are some amazing ideas for your 2022 bridal shower themes! There is something for everyone on this list.
Dressed in White
The bride will be wearing white so soon! Why not have everyone wear white to the bridal shower? This can be fun because everyone will enjoy picking out their outfits, and truly feel like they’re celebrating the bride-to-be! It will also make for excellent photos.
If you aren’t a fan of the all-white idea, you can make it black & white!
Guests both young and old can enjoy a good tea party! If the bride is a girly girl who loves all things dainty and floral, then a tea party is a great bridal shower theme idea for her.
To pull this off, you can gather mismatched china from thrift stores! Serve up finger sandwiches, scones, and tea for a true experience.
Glam Slumber Party
If the bride is a true kid at heart, then an adult version of a slumber party is a good bridal shower theme for her!
You can all wear matching pajamas, watch a movie, and order pizza. This is absolutely perfect for a laidback bride who doesn’t want to be the center of attention.
If you want to make this idea a little more “extra,” then you can rent out a suite at a hotel & spa! This can be a perfect way to double up the bridal shower and bachelorette party, too.’
Does your bride love all things, Disney? This will be the perfect theme for her, then!
Don’t worry, there are a lot of ways to do this theme without making it feel like a kid’s party.
Some ideas include:
- Have a baker make the cake, cake pops, or cupcakes with cute Minnie ears.
- Have fun signs all around the shower! Ex: “We finish each other’s… sandwiches” by the sandwich table
- Give out Minnie ears to the guests as a favor (you can find less expensive versions than what Disney sells online, or even make your own!)
The possibilities are endless with a Disney-themed shower.
If you have a bride who loves the water, this might be a great bridal shower theme for her!
This will typically include rope accents, anchors, and darker shades of blue. You can make a DIY photo booth — don’t forget the sailor’s hats and life preservers! — and put together a nautical-themed playlist.
Another good idea for a bride who loves the beach is a coastal theme! Don’t confuse coastal with nautical, the coastal theme is much more “beachy!”
You can make this more of a fun theme with sunglasses, seashells, and pool floaties. Or, make it more of a luxurious theme with acai bowls, drinks in coconuts, etc. It all depends on the bride’s personality, but if she loves the beach, then this is perfect!
Black Tie Affair
If your bride and your guests love to dress to the nines, then throw a black-tie affair for her bridal shower! This is perfect if you can rent out a room in an upscale restaurant or even a ballroom.
Everyone can get dressed up in their fanciest outfits, and you can even create a red carpet-style photo booth! For decor, anything with glitter or sparkle will be perfect.
Brunch has been an insanely popular choice for bridal shower themes in recent years. Breakfast food and mimosas… who wouldn’t love that?!
You can include a full breakfast bar and mimosa station that everyone will be going back to for seconds and thirds!
Since we’re in the 2020s, having a 1920’s-themed bridal shower is only fitting! You can go all out with a Great Gatsby style… perfect for the bride who loves all things vintage!
For a fun twist, you can serve some classic Prohibition-era drinks, like Sidecars and Gin Rickeys!’
This isn’t exactly a theme idea, but is something to think about! A lot of couples in recent years choose to participate in all wedding activities together. After all, this is a celebration of the two of them getting married!
If you know that the couple loves to do everything together, consider hosting a joint shower for the two of them. Some theme ideas could include:
- Sports (baseball, football, etc.)
- Pool party
- Game night
- LumberJack & Jill
- Picnic party
- Cabin & Cocktails
Have a bride who is country at heart, but also loves all things girly? Make the theme Country Chic! You can still pull from the southern and rustic elements that she loves while keeping it more elegant. Don’t forget the sweet tea and country music!
Love Is Sweet
Does the bride have a major sweet tooth? Go all out with candy and sweets for the shower! This also gives you the chance to have bright, colorful, and fun decorations.
Have a dessert bar — don’t forget some sugar-free options for those who may need or want it!
This is perfect for the more whimsical bride. And if you know that she is having a boho-themed wedding, then you know that she will love a boho shower! This is a great option if the shower will be in a backyard, too. It will give you that earthy experience that you need for a boho theme! Make sure you have plenty of fairy lights, rugs, and poufs for seating.
Have a Hawaiian luau… again, a great option for a beachy bride! If the couple is going to Hawaii for their honeymoon, then this will be perfect. Make sure you give everyone a lei when they walk in and serve some pina colada and dole whips!
