In today’s time, every bride wants to have a bridal shower where she can invite all her close bridesmaids and spend an entire day talking, creating beautiful memories and having a great time together. And, while everyone plans on having a bridal shower, it gets costly while executing.

So, to have a bridal shower on a budget, we have compiled a list of tips you should read. From having a small guest list to keeping the food simple, scroll below to get the ultimate tips!

Here’s How You Can Have a Bridal Shower on Budget

Have A Small Guest List

As harsh as it sounds, the longer your guest list, the more money you’ll have to spend on your bridal shower. That’s why we recommend having a small group circle. Not only will it be easy to manage but your budget will be in control.

Ask Around for a Venue

The most expenditure you will do for your bridal shower will be on the venue so the best way to save your bucks on this front is to simply ask around for a venue. If you know of a friend who can give you his or her farm on rent or a relative who owns a really pretty basement, ask them to let you have your bridal shower there!

Plan Activities That Don’t Require Spending Money

Your bridal shower should be remembered for years to come and that will only happen when you plan fun activities. Not everything needs to be store-bought nor should you end up spending a bomb on it that’s why we recommend planning those activities that don’t require you to spend any money.

DIY as Much as you Can

From the decor to the games, you ladies need to DIY the hell out of your bridal shower. Not only will you save big bucks but the DIY process will make everything close to the heart and personal for you.

Keep the Food Simple

Another area where you can end up spending a lot is the food. The more simple your food is, the less expensive it will be for you. We recommend going with dishes that also fill your guests’ stomachs rather than going with hors d'oeuvres.

Batched Drinks for the Win

If you’re planning on serving alcohol at your bridal shower, we recommend making batched drinks. Easy to make, cost-efficient, and whatnot, having batched drinks is a win-win situation for you!
