Before we go in to planning your bridal shower, it’s likely you have one question on your mind: What’s the difference between a bridal shower and a bachelorette party? Here’s the answer:
Bridal shower – pretty much like an engagement party, but just for the girls. Normally the preferred choice to an bachelorette if partying is not your ‘cup of tea’
Bachelorette party – the preferred choice if you enjoy drinking and partying. A bachelorette party is a chance to let your hair down and have fun with the girls
So really, they are similar events, but differ depending on whether you enjoy a night out or a night in. In this guide, we focus on planning a bridal shower. Read more on planning your bridal shower below the image.
