8 Bridal Shower Themes for 2024

Hosting a bridal shower is a lot of fun, but coming up with the perfect theme can take some serious brainstorming. Here are 8 Bridal Shower Themes for 2024 to get you started!


Everyone loves a good throwback. Choose a specific era, like the ’20s or ’50s, and have guests dress accordingly. Decorate with vintage items and play music from that time.

Boho Chic

Embrace a relaxed and bohemian vibe with colorful decorations, flower crowns, and earthy elements. Make sure there are plenty of spots to lounge around, preferably on round, overstuffed ottomans or large yoga pillows. This would be the perfect shower to include a juice bar!

Classic Tea Party

Create an elegant atmosphere with tea sets, delicate finger foods, and floral decorations. It might be fun to incorporate china and glassware from the couple’s family into the event. This kind of shower can be held indoors or outdoors, and you could even consider increasing the classiness with a live string quartet.


Are you hosting a shower for a couple that loves to travel? Celebrate their love for adventure with travel-themed decorations, like map napkins and compasses, at each table. Frame photos of the couple on their various trips. Make sure to include their favorite international cuisine. Here’s a thought: Invitations could be created to look like vintage plane tickets!

Beach Theme Party

If the bride loves the beach, consider a beach or poolside celebration with tropical decorations and summery vibes. This kind of shower always lends itself to great photos as the backdrops are always bright and colorful. Don’t forget your tropical drinks with tiny little umbrellas! If the newlyweds are going somewhere exotic for their honeymoon, this is the perfect way to build anticipation for their getaway.

Garden Party

Host the shower outdoors with floral arrangements, garden-inspired décor, and fresh, vibrant colors. This is the perfect option for a co-ed shower because you can include lawn games, BBQ, or a fun cocktail station. This is one of my favorite bridal shower themes.

Brunch Bash

Who doesn’t love brunch? Host a brunch with delicious breakfast foods, mimosas, and a relaxed morning atmosphere. It could be fun to create a DIY Bloody Mary bar or you could even bring in a coffee truck to cater those delicious espresso drinks. Maybe a custom latte that represents the bride? The possibilities are endless with this bridal shower theme.

Hollywood Glam

Opt for a glamorous and sophisticated celebration with a red carpet entrance, elegant décor, and a touch of celebrity style. Consider hiring some photographers to make the entrance extra flashy and make sure to include the red carpet backdrop where all guests stop to get their photos taken.
