Contemporary Themes

In today's modern world, a contemporary theme for a bridal shower could make a cool idea. If you prefer to be unconventional, why not consider a high tech theme? Professional brides who have tastes in contemporary fashion and lifestyle would surely appreciate a high tech themed shower. A modern shower can be held in the office, conference room, or lobby.

Health and Fitness Themes

For a bride who's very conscious when it comes to health, planning a health and fitness themed shower is the best idea you can do. This party can be held in a gym, local health club, spa, or just at the backyard where there's a small vegetable plantation.

Depending on the availability of the venue, you can have it decorated with sports/athletic items or fresh vegetables and fruits. You can even set up a juice bar and serve healthy snacks.
