The bridal shower: one of many pre-wedding events. This can be a daunting task as a planner of the event. Easy Event Planning has provided a bridal shower checklist and budget for you. The shower is one of the only events where the bride is truly the guest. The day is clearly all about her, so you want it to be special. In addition, you want to be aware of each nuance, tradition, and piece of etiquette that makes bridal showers what they are. The Bridal Shower Checklist will guide you through planning every detail. From choosing a date, sending out invites, deciding on the theme of the party, party favors, and so much more.
5 Reasons to Use Our Bridal Shower Checklist
1. Automatic timeline
If the thought of a party planning checklist immediately makes you feel anxious and behind schedule, keep reading. Stressed, wondering "how long does it take to plan a bridal shower?" Easy Event Planning’s checklists can be automatically scaled to any timeline. You won’t be behind before the planning has even started or glued to unrealistic deadlines. Each task will have a due date, but they can be reordered by you as the user or manually changed.
Unlike other websites, Easy Event Planning does not use a generic checklist across its content. This checklist was specifically created for bridal shower planning. It will take you through everything you can imagine from food to bridal shower games to decorations.
Our template is formatted to help you easily see what tasks need to get done, and which should have higher priority. Dates for tasks are color-coded. Yellow means a task is approaching, for example. If a task turns red, the date has passed. Tasks turn green when completed. Woohoo!
If you’re planning the shower with anyone else, use their Gmail address to share the checklist for easy collaboration. There is also space dedicated to assigning tasks from the list. Everyone will be on the same page, in real-time! Multiple people can edit at the same time.
