Perfect Gifts For a Memorable Bridal Shower

Bridal showers are parties given to a bride prior to her wedding. This custom originated in the US, amidst speculations that it really started in Belgium (Brussels) in the year 1860. The bridesmaids are the ones who normally plan these showers.

The bridal shower custom can be linked to the previous dowry practices of poor communities who do not have enough money to give a dowry for the bride. Another instance is when the father declines to provide his daughter a dowry due to disapproval of her marriage.

Centuries ago, such situations would call for the help of the bride’s friends. They will gather together to bring gifts as compensation for the dowry.

In the US, bridal showers actually started within the urban areas, among the upper middle class during the 1890s. It was only during the 1930s when these bridal showers spread throughout rural America.

Today, bridal showers are a celebration of the upcoming wedding. It is given as a tribute to the bride who will become a missus soon.
