Modern Themes and Ideas for Your Wedding Shower

Wedding shower: table with drinks and food

Wedding showers aren’t just for your grandma and your great aunt anymore. This sometimes-stuffy affair has gotten a modern makeover — starting with its name. Formerly known as the bridal shower, wedding showers are a more inclusive interpretation.

Just by changing one word, you’ve opened the door for a co-ed guest list. You can make it a couple’s shower and invite your entire “I do“ crew, or you can keep your guest list limited to the bridal party while hosting a more casual event.

Unlike the pastel and doily bridal shower themes of days gone by, modern wedding showers allow you to incorporate more spunky, funky, and fun themes — like a BBQ, pool party, or brewery bash. (The days of teetotaling showers have also gone by the wayside, so you’re free to sip mimosas all morning if you want to.)

We’ll cover some of our favorite new wedding shower trends and walk you through the planning process, from coming up with your theme to sending out invites and planning activities. Here’s your complete guide to throwing a modern wedding shower.
