25 Bridal Shower Centerpieces the Bride-to-Be Will Love
Planning a bridal shower isn't always a walk in the park. Although it's (hopefully) a smaller celebration than the wedding day itself, there are so many details to consider when bringing the event to life: A guest list, a date, location, menu, and—possibly the most intimidating to-do of them all—the décor. But there's no reason to stress over adding great decorative moments to her bridal shower. As long as you stay true to the bride-to-be's personality, there's no wrong way to dress up these pre-wedding parties.
Our favorite way to add a little oomph to a bridal shower without going overboard? Choosing the right centerpieces. Short or tall, simple or sweet, bridal shower centerpieces elevate your location and add an extra pop of color without taking up too much of your time or eating up your budget. While most of these arrangements lean toward the smaller side, some hosts opt to fill their tables with larger, fresh mixes (or even choose non-floral centerpieces!). Others still skip traditional tabletop displays altogether. Take Hudson Botanica, for example, who created this garland full of fresh greenery and florals for this single-table shower.
You can also be strategic about how many centerpieces you want to include. They can be added to as many (or few) tables as you need, whether that means decorating one central table that serves as a floral focal point or individual tables so every guest has a pretty centerpiece to admire. Not sure which method to choose—or what you want these arrangements to look like? Look to the following options, which were a pretty addition to their celebrations. Click through to see some of our favorite bridal shower centerpiece ideas for the pre-wedding event of the bride-to-be's dreams.
