If the bachelor party is supposed to go calm, a cozy afternoon is only perfect with the girls! At the Bridal Shower, you really get together in a wedding mood – the ideal preparation for the big day!
Such a bridal party or English “Bridal Shower” is ideal for pregnant women or brides who want to take the hen party calmly. Instead of pulling through the city, you make a relaxing day with your friends at home.
Here we have a lot of nice ideas to celebrate the hen party calmly, but still with a lot of fun!

1. What is a Bridal Shower?
Who organizes the Bridal Shower?
The Bridal Shower is also organized by the wedding cub instead of the hen party. It is of course a special highlight when the bridal party is a surprise party for the bride. But you can also plan the appointment with the bride just as well and you just don’t reveal what exactly expects them.
A variation of the Bridal Shower: The bride organizes a small bridal party itself to spend some time together with their bridesmaids and plan the last details undisturbed.
Who comes to the Bridal Shower?
Of course, the narrowest friends of the bride. Even if not everyone knows each other or a very mixed group is created – at their bridal party, the bride should all gather their favorite girls who only take care of them.
For a cozy afternoon at the Bridal Shower at home, you shouldn’t be more than 10 to 12 girls overall. After all, you want to spend the day together and not divide into different groups.
When and where is the Bridal Shower?
It is best to organize the bridal party about six weeks before the wedding on a Saturday or Sunday before/afternoon, perhaps also with an evening program and overnight. The Bridal Shower should take place in a place where the bride feels particularly comfortable, e.g. at her home, in the garden, or in her parents’ house. Of course, the bride itself should not have to help with preparation or cleaning up.
Bridal shower thank you cards should be sent within the week following the shower, says Marsch. You don’t want to wait before expressing your appreciation.
2. Enjoy the hen party pregnant
Pregnant brides would like to move through the city with drunken girls.
A cozy bridal party is perfect for pregnant women.
Because the fun factor of a Bridal Shower is undoubtedly just as high as with the classic bachelor party!
It is only important to consider that there is also interesting anti-alcoholic drinks and not just “boring” water.
Coupled with our program ideas for pregnant women, the bridal party for pregnant women becomes as unforgettable as it would have been a party night.
Tip: Try to focus on the hen party and the wedding and leave the pregnancy aside. So the bride can enjoy or not relaxed and get in the mood for the wedding.
3. The invitation to the Bridal Shower
Girls usually plan with attention to detail, so that the invitation to the bridal party or Bridal Shower can be beautifully designed.
In addition to the usual facts (date, time, location), you can already reveal some details about the bridal party in the invitation.
Since not everyone knows this kind of calm hen party, it is best to start with how you imagine the day – for example:
- “Let’s really get us into a wedding mood with a cozy girls’ afternoon!”
- “The best joy is anticipation: to get in the mood for the wedding of the bride we celebrate a cozy bridal party!”
- “Just girls, lots of fun and wedding matters – that and more we will do at the bridal party!”

This can then be a kiss, a compliment, a hug, a thank you, etc. All labeled spoons place her in a beautiful vase that the future couple always reminds of “the little attention” of marriage.
