A Step by Step Guide on How to Throw a Bridal shower surprise

By: Louiseservage
Sometimes it seems as though surprise parties are impossible these days with Blackberries, email and text messaging all posing as a spoiler. The perfect surprise party is possible though. If you wish to throw a surprise Bridal shower there are a few things to keep in mind and which will help to make it the best surprise shower possible.

The First Step

O.K the first thing that you need to do is write up the guest list. You really cannot go any further at this point, before this has been done because you are going to need to find out who is can come, what days are good for every one, and how far they are willing to go.

Write up the guest list not forgetting to include the bride-to-be's best friends and family members, the number of guests that you invite is really a personal choice and how many people you think they would like to have come.

Picking the Perfect Date

The next step in planning the Bridal shower surprise is to actually set the date. This can be somewhat tricky, because more than anything you are going to have to make sure that the bride herself is going to be able to make it on that date, but without letting her know that you are up to anything.

Speaking to her fianc to see what his opinion on this is, and getting a hold of her date book/day planner, without being overly nosy, can help you check to see what dates she is free and available.

Keeping The Bride In The Dark

Over the time that you are planning and preparing for the Bridal shower surprise you are going to need to make sure that the soon to be bride is kept busy.

Without making it too obvious that you are trying to get her out of the way, you should by now have her busily occupied with other tasks (preferably elsewhere) while you and the other girls are busy working away to make sure that her bridal shower is just right.

Keep Everyone Quiet

Bridal showers can be an exciting affair, especially a surprise Bridal shower, but making sure that everyone keeps quiet is a must.

The more people each person tells about the surprise party the greater the risk of a leak becomes and the chances that the guest of honour finding out about the surprise increase, so making sure that all of the guests are tight lipped and keep it on a need to know basis.
