Bride-to-BEE Bridal Shower!

Congratulations on your engagement! You have found the one person you are meant to BEE with and can't wait to start the rest of your life with them. Before all the I do's happen, plan a sweet bridal shower party that will get family and friends excited for the main event.


Break the traditions of floral and feminine bridal showers with a creative theme that will set your bridal shower apart from others. Shop bridal shower invitations on, where you can personalize all messaging, fonts, and colors to match your ideal vision of your party. We chose a traditional yet modern bee design to set off the tone for the honeybee bridal shower we are hosting.

The end of summer and early fall is a great time to host an outdoor bridal shower party, so plan to host in the comfort of your backyard. This will save money on hosting the party as well as give a more intimate and casual feel to the event. Enhance the décor of your backyard by adding little details to make your ordinary patio furniture fit the feel of the bridal shower theme. These yellow honeycomb table runners are easy to make and add a great pop of color to the rustic picnic tables. DIY Honeycomb Table Runner on

Snacks, food items, and drinks can all be centered around the sweet as can bee theme of the honeybee. These chocolate beehive cupcakes are just as delicious as they are beautiful! They can be displayed on a silver serving tray, a wide cake stand or cake plate, or tiered in a beehive shape. Chocolate Beehive Cupcakes on

For favors, there are many adorable items that fit the bumble bee theme. Create these DIY beeswax candles for guests to take home, and make some extra for décor as well. We also love the idea of sending guests home with their own personal jar of honey. Create a cute tag with a message like "meant-to-bee" or "sweet-as-can-bee" along with the couple's name and marriage date for a great keepsake for guests. Contact your local bee keeper and use a local source for the honey! DIY Beeswax Pillar Candle Favors
