Every year that comes and goes heralds in a new trend that will be “the hit” this season. Couples showers aren’t any different. In fact they, much like their bridal counterparts are very much tied to the trends that play out in the wedding department. And that is a good things since you will always have something new to look forward to. The days of having your grandparent’s wedding are gone. And so are the days that a bridal shower is a “girls only” party are also long gone.
A wedding shower has the added benefit of taking aspects of the couple and turning them into a unique celebration that is hard to package up and share like some of the more traditional bridal shower themes. In fact you can say that most couples showers are something a little different.
And while it is easy to say that nautical, rustic, or even luau is the hit this season, one of the biggest trends this season is the DIY couples shower.
This takes a unique look at the whole shower culture and turns it upside down, standing it on its head and shaking a little bit. It is the type of celebration that people want to be part of and are thrilled when they get the invitation. Because unlike the themes you’ll find in normal bridal showers the DIY couples shower doesn’t go by the book.
It gives you the chance to free your creativity and plan an event that suits how you are. If that isn’t enough many of the couples who choose to go their own way are happier with the results. While it can be reassuring to know that you have something to fall back to when something doesn’t work out. It is even more reassuring to know that it doesn’t matter when something doesn’t work out. And that you can just change your plans.
The average wedding cost almost $26,000 dollars. But a bridal shower can easily cost a couple of thousand dollars itself.
When you don’t feel the need to push your shower in a direction it doesn’t want to go you can focus on the fun that it is supposed to be. We have plenty of couples wedding shower invitations that give you a chance to embrace this with your own special touch.
There is no need to spend more on the wedding shower than you really have to. The biggest expense should be the food and drinks, not chartering a boat.
Make sure your shower is a hit and just DIY!
