Transform any space into a beautiful bash for the bride with these bridal shower decoration ideas. We're talking stylish banners, balloons, floral backdrops and more - starting from just £3!

Pop the Champagne bridal shower backdrop with balloons

A bridal shower is a daytime event designed to shower the bride with gifts and celebrate her soon-to-be married status. In contrast to a typical hen party, it's a relaxed, family-friendly affair where everyone from great-grandmothers to her little sister can attend. In short, pack away the penis straws and save those for another night. 

But how do you throw the ultimate bridal shower? The devil is in the detail when it comes to creating a special day that looks amazing and has a brilliant atmosphere, so a great place to start is with the decorations. Whether you decide to host a beautiful bridal brunch, a glamorous gala or a festival-style soiree, decking the place out with gorgeous decorations will transform the space into something unforgettable. 

From balloon arches and neon lights to table confetti and cocktail toppers, we've compiled 31 beautiful bridal shower decoration ideas to get your venue looking totally Instagram-ready. Even better, many of these ideas are affordable or can be made DIY, so you won't have to break the bank to show the bride a good time. Now, all that's left to do is pick your theme and start shopping!
