Wedding planning is not a venture planned by the bride to be and her family only, today couples are taking the bridal shower event celebration to the next level wherein families of both bride and groom collaborate for making plans, deciding venues, food menu and many other things. There is a trend rising for Jack and Jill wedding shower which is kind of fun.
Contemporary Bridal Shower Idea
This is called a stag and doe style bridal shower where couples shower together, it is more like a party where bride as well as groom celebrates together with their friends and family members. Though a traditional style wedding shower is a big thing and of course is time honored, but there is nothing wrong for the couple to arrange a co-ed wedding shower party for having more fun. Few hours of fun by playing games may help alleviate the stress of entire wedding day planning as well. For planning the co-event, both parties have to contribute to the expenses related to buying gifts, souvenirs, and event planning.
Wedding Shower vs Bridal Shower
There is not much difference between a wedding shower and a bridal shower, both events are planned few weeks ahead of the wedding day. There is not much difference. This is event where close friends and family members are invited and served with gifts for bride and groom. However, if the couple has decided to go for the Jill and Jack themed wedding shower, it could be a little different from the traditional style Bridal shower which is arranged by brides’s family and bridesmaids only. Co-ed shower is a one feature for the wedding shower contrary to bridal shower event.
