Is Your Bridal Shower Guest List Shrinking?

Let’s face it, it has always been hard to get people to show up for personal life events like Bridal Showers. Whether from limitations on gatherings, busy schedules, or a lack of child care, it has always been hit or miss as to how many folks will show up to your shower. Sure, you can just go with a reduced list of invitations or keep it big and buy all the food and supplies for a large gathering. That’s just the way it has been for decades. Just like the institution of marriage, the times are changing and it isn’t all bad.

Birth Of The Flexible Bridal Shower

It’s a new day and flexibility is key. You truly need to approach the shower with an open mind and heart. While you may want all 60 of your friends to attend, that really isn’t feasible and the expense would rival your wedding. Be willing to tone it down, after all, you will probably only be able to get 20 people to attend the shower in person anyway. Why not live stream the event for the 40 people who will miss out?  Current events in your area may limit the number who can attend your function, but the magic of the internet enables anyone to attend, virtually. You can even play the same Bridal Shower games by adapting. Live streaming can actually add another dimension to the festivities. This is particularly important for the home-bound or those who are otherwise unable to attend. 

There are tried and true themes, games, food, and gifts for your Bridal shower that can be adapted for those who are there virtually.  Feel free to experiment and personalize the event. The world today has expanded the possibilities for your event in many ways. There really is no limit to what you can dream up and your friends and family will probably have a few ideas of their own. Just remember, be flexible.

Flexibility Is The Beacon Center’s Middle Name

We built The Beacon Center around flexibility. The ability to change our venue from a business meeting space to a Bridal Shower or even the actual wedding in a space of a few hours is truly what sets The Beacon Center apart from the traditional “banquet hall” set up. We can help you find the flexibility to hold nearly any type of event in our center. We have full live streaming capabilities included in our packages. All you need to do is call us. Better yet, visit our website and book a free tour. Come on by and see the very definition of flexibility.
