How to Plan a Bridal Shower on a Budget

While organizing a bridal shower, wedding planners are often faced with the difficult task of going through a lot of online content and online reviews to get an idea of how to achieve the best event with constrained funds.  Below are five things to consider.

  •       Cheaper venue

Hiring a venue for a bridal shower event is cash-intensive. Getting a cheaper event venue would substantially cut your costs. 

It would be great if there is someone in your circle who has a nice backyard or ample space. You could get the event space for a small fee or even for free. Alternatively, ask your friends if they would be interested in co-hosting the event. 

Secondly, there are lots of online sites that will be helpful with information on venues that would be within your budget. Take time to go through legitimate websites that offer reviews and cross-reference your selected event venue against the service experience of other users. 

It’s better to do your own research first in order to avoid any wedding scams. One review site that I have found helpful is PissedConsumer.Com. 

  •       DIY Decorations

In simple terms, cut costs by doing the decors on your own. Look up websites that offer free décor ideas. You could also purchase a customized décor idea if you find one within your budget.

It’s best to ensure you align it to the theme of the event. If need be, borrow ideas from the theme of the wedding.

In contrast to ordering custom-made decorations online, which may be substandard products, DIY decor guarantees product quality and flexibility. Also, you would avoid delays that could arise during delivery.

  •       Cheap Food

Complicated menus, drinks, and desserts could prove to be quite expensive even with a small number of attendees.

You can organize a menu yourself and with the help of friends prepare homemade desserts.

  •       Gifts

The gift needs not to be expensive; it needs to be significant and memorable. The key is to understand the needs of the bride and what makes her happy. She would most likely appreciate the effort you put in DIY or the custom-made gifts.

DIY gifts also reduce delivery delays, scams, and poor-quality products that might happen when ordering online.

  •       Planning the event yourself

If you a planning a bridal shower with a limited budget, it’s better to organize the event yourself. Check out online reviews, pick up the ideas from wedding blogs. Ask for help from your friends and bridal maids. 

In conclusion, understand the theme of the bridal shower. Secondly, work your way around costs while remaining within the bounds of the theme of the event. Remember, the main purpose of this event for the bride is to spend a nice time with friends and family.
