Lingerie parties are growing in popularity as a pre-wedding tradition for the bride and her friends. Instead of throwing a traditional bridal shower, more and more women are stocking up on fancy and sexy lingerie to start married life with. Picking a theme can help take your party to the next level, ensuring that it is an event that you and your friends will remember for years to come.
If you are throwing a lingerie party for a crafty bride, consider a party where everyone can create their own lingerie. There are actually luxurious make-your-own lingerie kits out there, but you don’t have to be that fancy. Everyone can grab an on-sale set and then hit the craft store for some beads, sequins and other embellishments. Who knows, the bride may end up making something she’ll want to wear on her honeymoon!
Throwing a theme lingerie party can not only help people know what gift to bring but also what to wear. On top of everyone bringing a lingerie gift for the bride, typically worth $25-$75 according to the Huffington Post, everyone can wear their favorite lingerie (or PJs!) This type of party is the perfect excuse to break out the junk food and your favorite guilty-pleasure movies. As a bonus, a grown-up sleepover can include drinking games!
A Day at the Beach
A beach themed lingerie party seems like a natural fit. Even if you can’t actually go to the beach, everyone can wear their favorite swimsuit and drink fruity cocktails with little umbrellas in them. Finding party favors for this type of event is usually easy due to how popular it is. After all, bikinis and lingerie sets are usually only separated by fabric choices, making this theme a natural fit!
A Day at the Spa
Lingerie is a magical thing. Kristin Prim, who has created her very own line of lingerie by women for women, says that these garments can change the entire way a woman can feel about herself in an interview with Forbes. Why not take this empowerment to the next level by taking the bride and her friends to a spa to be pampered and beautified!
This is an especially great theme if the party is close to the wedding. If going to a spa doesn’t sound appealing, there are at-home beauty-pros who can bring all of the pampering to you.
Throwing a lingerie party can be a memorable way to celebrate a bride’s upcoming wedding. Although they may seem overwhelming, they are actually quite simple throw. Just pick a great theme and run with it!
