So, bridal showers are definitely different to bachelorette parties. Each have their own purpose with different people that should be invited to each event.
Here is the difference:
“A bachelorette party is for you to let your hair down, forget about all your wedding plans and have some fun with your girls.”
Who arranges the Bachelorette?
The bachelorette party is usually organized by the Maid of Honour or the bride-to-be’s best girl friend. The bachelorette party is traditionally spent with friends that you wouldn’t mind seeing you on the drunk-side of life, so perhaps inviting the grandmother, mother, and the future mother-in-law is not a good idea.
What is the purpose of a Bachelorette party?
The bachelorette party marks the bride-to-be’s last night as a single woman. The bachelorette party tends to feature a little naughty humour, sexy antics and tons of alcohol- hence the reason the future mother-in-law should not be invited to the event.
Where to have a Bachelorette party?
Pubs, clubs, and anywhere that serves up naughty juice with a place to dance the night away and have a good time. The Bachelorette party is usually held at night.
“A bridal shower is like an engagement party but just for girls.” A Bridal Shower is also known as a Kitchen Tea.
Who arranges the Bridal Shower?
Traditionally, the Bridal Shower is organized by the Maid of Honour with the help of bridesmaids. This event usually hosts all the ladies that are invited to the wedding.
What is the purpose of a Bridal Shower?
Well, to ‘shower’ the bride-to-be in gifts and words of encouragement for her new life and home as a married woman.
Where to have the Bridal Shower?
Traditionally, the Maid of Honour’s home, but in recent year the popularity of tea gardens, hotels, and cafes serving as a Bridal Shower venue have pushed tradition out the door. The Bridal Shower is normally held during the day and is fun and girly.
