A bridal shower is a lovely way to celebrate the upcoming wedding (and is usually more tame than the hen party). Traditionally the bridal shower is something that the bridesmaids and mother of the bride will arrange and is a brunch, lunch or dinner to celebrate the upcoming wedding.
If you have been invited to a bridal shower and you are unsure what type of gift to bring then take a look at a few on our favourite ideas.
