Have you been appointed as a bridal shower hostess or planner? Are you looking for some unique and memorable ideas to surprise the bride to be? Why not consider having a Bridal Cruise, a Day at the Spa, or a Destination Shower instead of a traditional one?
Bridal Shower Cruise
Daily cruises aboard cruise ships are available in several cities around the United States including Washington, D.C. Philadelphia, P.A. and Charleston, S.C. Frequently reserved for retirement parties and birthday celebrations, these ships provide an excellent setting for a calm, serene and upscale shower. If you are in D.C. or P.A. the bride and her guests can sail aboard the Spirit of Washington or the Spirit of Philadelphia where they will enjoy a seated meal and listen to the sounds of a live band or disc jockey. If you are in the vicinity of Charleston, S.C. you can cruise aboard the Carolina Belle. The Carolina Belle also has an event planner that will help you make the event even more memorable. One of the best reasons for throwing a bridal shower aboard a cruise ship is that you’ll eliminate all of the preparatory work that tends to overwhelm the hostess.
Day Spa Bridal Shower
Many day spas around the country will also allow you to reserve their spas for a bridal shower celebration. To prepare for the event you’ll need to select a spa and provide all of the guests with a price list for available services. For large groups, most spas require a partial deposit for all services. So you’ll need to set a deadline for the deposits, collect the monies and that’s it. Most spas also offer light snacks and drinks. To kick the shower up a notch, you can bring in additional food or a cake. If you decide to bring in outside food items, please be sure to check with the spa.
