Say a big no-no to these gender norms which says men only or women only! Hold a joint wedding shower and get all kind of help you could use with boys around you. Make sure you are inviting only the close friends of the bride and groom.
If you go by the rule book on how to hold a bridal shower, it clearly says not to involve the mother of the bride. But why not! She is the mother of the bride and should certainly be asked to join-in, provided she’s all game to be a part of her daughter’s celebrations and enjoy to the fullest with her daughter’s friends.

How unfair would it be to feed your growling tummy with tea, cake and sandwiches only? Think about hosting a bridal shower in a restaurant or a lounge. Else, you can have a pizza party at home or order food from the dhaba that serves piping hot and yummy food to satisfy your taste buds.
You don’t need to browse endless websites to shortlist games for the day that will prove to be a real fun. Just buy a few board games or play cards. You can even organise a couple paper dance game or a few rounds of dumb charades. What else? Head out for a game of bowling or paintball! Sometimes, we complicate planning so much that we miss out on the most obviouse fun games, don’t you think?
You may think it’s a little too early to do so, but it’s always a good idea to know what your friend wants. The idea is that you can free yourself of the tension of what to gift her and eventually, you will gift her the thing of her own choice.
You as an organiser may not know all the friends of the bride or the groom if it’s a joint shower. It will be a good idea to have a discussion with her because she may not like the idea of inviting everyone. Besides, you may end up inviting someone with whom she doesn’t share as good a rapport. The safest way out of this dilemma is vetting the guest list with her.
