5 Perfect Summer Themed Bridal Shower Ideas

The June solstice officially marked the start of summer, and that means that on top of having more time for daylight, chances are you’ll be spending some of that time at weddings and bridal showers.

If you’ve been appointed maid of honor or a bridesmaid, you’re probably using the extra daylight to organize such events. We understand that planning can be overwhelming, but it becomes less bothersome when you’re working with an exciting theme. So, to help you out, we’re sharing five of our favorite summer bridal shower theme ideas below!


brunch bridal shower

Brunch is one of the most cost-effective meals if you’re looking to be conservative on cash. When putting together a brunch bridal shower, consider setting things up so that people can customize according to their own tastes.

For example, a yogurt bar allows people to put on their own toppings, and pancake pops and mini smoothies allow people to easily grab and go to move about the space easier.

Pool Party

If you’ve got warm weather and sun, then poolside is the place to throw your bridal shower.

Guests can float around on playful inner tubes, lounge on chairs to get some vitamin D, or relax under the shade of a pop-up tent.

Carry over this relaxed, island mind-set with the table setting by styling flowers in chic, pineapple vases.

picnic bridal shower

If the weather is still pretty grand and you don’t have access to a pool, try organizing a picnic. While it may seem even more bothersome, it really isn’t.

Food can be transported via adorable wicker baskets, and for added convenience, arrange to use a low set-up table and cushions for the gathering area.

Backyards, neighborhood parks, and state beaches all make for great picnic areas.

Seriously, when was the last time you had one of these? Bring back the nostalgia and ultimate girliness that is a slumber party.

Arrange to have DIY manicures, pedicures, and face masks. Plus, don’t forget the movie and popcorn. And, all the bonding this type of atmosphere encourages will make it all the easier to play those silly bridal shower games.

Maybe even throw in MASH just for old times’ sake!
