Holy Moly, Matrimony!
There comes a very special time in a person’s life when they decide to settle down and become wed. The reaction to the news comes in several forms. Joy, shock, and the realization that someone whose friendship we hold dearly is beginning a bold new chapter in their life.
While the headaches and stress of planning a storybook wedding are on the horizon, so are two other traditions that friends of the betrothed take part in—the bachelorette party, and the bridal shower.
In case you’re someone who takes names of events quite literally, we need to emphasize that this does not include bathing the bride. A bridal shower is an event filled with joy and gifts as someone we cherish begins a new chapter in their life.
