Second Marriage Bridal Showers: Why the Heck Not?

Traditional wedding etiquette takes a uniformly negative stance on second marriage bridal showers. According to the prigs among us, daring to have a bridal shower prior to a second or subsequent wedding is Just Not Done.

Whether you're divorced or widowed, the reasons don't matter. Some guardians of our morals even denounce the practice when it's the bride-to-be's first marriage if the fiancé has been married before.

Forget the Wine and Cheese -- Have a Chocolate Tasting Shower Instead!

When it comes to themed bridal showers, the wine and cheese tasting crowd has its adherents; but I say, why bother with spoiled grape juice and rotten milk when you can have a chocolate tasting shower instead?

Thinking About Throwing Your Own Wedding Shower? Don't Do It!

Whatever you do as your Big Day approaches, don't give more than a second's thought to throwing your own wedding shower.

Now, it's only natural for you to think a lot about the important side events associated with your nuptials, especially the bachelorette party and your bridal shower.

Barbecue and the Bridal Shower

In the modern era, a bridal shower doesn't have to be the segregated girls-only event that tradition once demanded of us. Nope, coed and couples showers are on the rise... and it's about time, too.

The Spa-Themed Bridal Shower

The Beach Wedding Shower

Envision, if you will, the ambience of a beach wedding shower. A tropical drink melting in your hand (a la The Beach Boys), the roar of the surf, the crunch of sand beneath your toes, the scent of salt in the air, the sparkle of sunlight on the breaking waves...

Now, imagine that, instead, you're just sitting in your living room watching your buddy open gifts. Doesn't really compare, does it?
