Looking for a fun way to honor the happy couple this summer?
Instead of a girl's only bridal shower, why not mix things up a bit and make it an I Do, BBQ.
This unique couples shower idea works so well at home, in the back yard, outside on a patio, in a garden setting or even in a picnic area at the park or your favorite beach.
The food can be simple barbecue fare (think burgers and hot dogs) that you prepare and cook on the grill or make it a pot-luck party by asking everyone to bring something they love to make or cook. If you'd rather not cook at all, go ahead and bring in food from your favorite regional BBQ joint.
I've featured an adorable invite design created byJinaiji that has the vintage look that's so hot right now.
The design is done in basic black on a burlap-look background. What makes this so super cute is that the "O" in "I Do" has been replaced with a diamond engagement ring.
This high-quality, reasonably priced invitation is made in the USA, measures 5" x 7", comes with it's own white envelope and can be easily personalized by you.
At Zazzle there are hundreds of other custom designs to choose from. You can see them all by clicking HERE.

The History of Bridal Showers
Did you know that the custom of throwing a bridal shower dates back to the time when dowries were popular? Friends of the woman to be wed began giving what is now known as a bridal shower to compensate women who came from poor families who couldn't afford a proper dowry, or for a woman whose father didn't approve of the marriage and refused to pay.
