Planning a spring or summer bridal shower? Why not take advantage of the wonderful weather by packing a picnic and heading out into the great outdoors?
A picnic bridal shower just might be the perfect choice!
I can't think of a better way to surprise the bride-to-be. Think about it. You pack everything up ahead of time. Invite her to accompany you to the park or beach and when you arrive, instant shower.
All of the guests appear out of the woodwork, or woods, depending on where you're having the party and the fun begins.
The food is super easy to plan and prepare and the mood will surely be extremely casual.
It's also a great idea for those of you who don't have a big enough space in your home to throw a full-blown party.
Here's a few invites that will help you set the tone when inviting intended guests to an outdoor bridal shower.

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.
