bridal shower party favors

Bridal showers work as an intimate event between the bride’s closest friends where they can help the bride prepare for married life and at the same time bid farewell to her singlehood. As an event that is traditionally planned by the maid of honor, you may be reading this article as your friend’s trusted right-hand woman in her coming wedding. If you’re planning the bridal shower, you’ll also be planning all the details, from the bridal shower program to the bridal shower party favors. Lucky for you, we’re here to help – starting with the party favors! We’ve narrowed down the list to the best and most memorable bridal shower party favors you can choose from. But first, let’s answer a few questions that you might be asking.

Who Pays for the Bridal Shower Party Favors?

Because bridal shower parties are often planned and hosted by the maid of honor, most of the time she’ll also be responsible for picking out the bridal shower party favors, as well as the bridal shower gift for the bride. However, if by any chance the maid of honor cannot pay for the party favors, she may delegate the task to other willing bridesmaids. In some instances, the bride may also shoulder the cost of the party favor as a way to say thank you to her closest female friends and her wedding entourage.

Are Bridal Shower Party Favors Different From Despedida de Soltera Giveaways?

While bridal showers and despedida de solteras as both parties are held as a send-off for the bride, they’re actually held separately, with despedida de solteras hosted by the bride’s family. This means that party favors for both events are different and are planned by the maid of honor and the bride’s family respectively.

How Much Should I Spend on Bridal Shower Party Favors?

The amount that you’ll be spending all depends on your budget. Since we know that maid of honor duties entail spending money for planning and hosting the bridal shower party, we do want to keep the bridal shower party favors as affordable as possible. You can spend as little as PHP 150 to about PHP 300 for each bridal shower party favor, and your guests will still be grateful for the take-home gift. But if you have money to spare and you want to give your guests an extra special party favor, you can go beyond this average party gift cost.
