A bridal shower is a fun way of celebrating the bride before her big day. It’s a day to spend time together with her loved ones and also a day for loved ones to shower her with gifts.
If the bridal shower is taking place during summer there is no better way to celebrate the bride than to throw her a fun summer themed party.
We have compiled a list of our favorite bridal shower themes for summer.

Garden parties are perfect for the summer season. If you have a bride that loves the outdoors, a garden themed shower will be perfect for her. Fill the venue with the bride’s favorite flowers.
3. Tea Party
The weather during summer can be warm and uncomfortable, so throwing an afternoon tea-style shower is perfect for summer. Offer a variety of flavored teas. Serve tea treats with sandwiches, cookies, blueberry scones and muffins. You can also decorate the room with candles in teacups.
