I’m in the middle of planning my sister’s bridal shower at the moment and we just started looking at cute and unique bridal shower favor ideas for the guests. While I’m still narrowing down our choices, I thought I’d share with you a whole bunch of adorable and useful options that you can buy or DIY for bridal shower favors or for bridal shower game prizes.
I have one requirement for favors for any parties. They have to be at least vaguely useful. Most of us are in a constant state of trying to de-clutter, so adding useless junk no one will ever use is a big no for me. These are all pretty and useful, no matter your guest’s differing styles.
