Planning a Lingerie Shower
I've had the pleasure to network with a savvy business woman,Brenda Gonzales-Kennedy she is the owner of Naughty and Nice Lingerie. She graciously agreed to share a post from her blog for my readers.
Summer is almost upon us, and that means it's wedding season! If you are hosting a bridal shower soon, you might want to consider a lingerie theme - after all, a bridal shower is the perfect time to treat a bride-to-be to some pretty things to take on her honeymoon! After you’ve finalized the guest list and set a date (and made sure that the bride is comfortable with the theme..which you know she will be!), it’s time to start working on the details that will make this bridal shower truly special.
To have a party like this, the bride must be willing to give up her sizing information so her guests can purchase things that will actually fit her! This is a great time for her to head out for a professional fitting if she hasn’t had one lately. You can include the sizing information with the invitations, or the bride can create her own wishlist of items she is in need of! She can set up a wishlist on sites like Wishlist.com, which let her add any item from any website (such as www.naughtyandnicelingerie.com) to her wishlist.
Now it’s time to send out the party invitations! There are plenty of lingerie-themed invitations available. I provide lingerie party postcards, but if you want something extra special, I have heard that Etsy.com has some unique and relatively inexpensive stationary from a wide variety of sellers. Some sellers have invitations specifically designed to include a page of sizing information! Be sure to specify the theme on the invitation.
The party itself should be pretty, decadent, and feminine, just like lingerie! Be sure to include flowers, wine, and candles. The little details will make the difference here - everyone expects snacks, but your guests will be impressed if you use lingerie cookie cutters to make on-theme desserts. If you plan to play shower games, you can even reward winners with lingerie. Of course, you don’t know what size the winner will be, a great idea would be something that is one-size-fits-most! You could also give away gift cards to places like naughtyandnicelingerie.com. When it’s time to say goodbye, send your guests home with a pretty party favor. You could hand out lingerie drawer sachets or inexpensive one-size-fits-most stockings. When I host a party, I normally give away lingerie mesh laundry bags..these are great and are useful since most women wash their lingerie in a washing machine, since we just don't have the time to hand wash anymore!
Have fun at your party, and if you live in Northern New Jersey or very close to it, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to book your party! We can do showers, or just a girl's night in party with a twist..a bbq for the summer months, or a pool party featuring great swimsuits from my site at www.naughtyandnicelingerie.com. Email me for more details!
